Forest Bathing is the translation of Shinrin Yoku, the Japanese practice of spending time in nature for health and happiness.
Forest bathing is the practice of being with nature in a conscious way through all of your senses. The authentic experience is not a walk in the forest or mindfulness simply lead in nature. Nature is a partner, not a destination. Through the relationship, you discover what “medicine” the forest offers for you—reconnection, reciprocity or renewal. Forest bathing events offers time to slow down, get present and be surprised by nature‘s gifts.
