"A beautiful and inspiring guide inviting us to seek out the trees and let the healing happen, both for us and for our beleaguered ecosystems. Grab this book and head outside" -Florence Williams, author of The Nature Fix: Why Nature Makes Us Happier, Healthier, and More Creative

Simply being present in the natural world - with all our senses fully alive - can have a remarkably healing effect. It can also awaken in us our latent but profound connection with all living things. This is "forest bathing", a practice inspired by the Japanese tradition of shinrin-yoku. It is a gentle, meditative approach to being with nature and an antidote to our nature-starved lives that can heal our relationship with the more-than-human world.

In Your Guide to Forest Bathing you'll discover a path--along with specific activities presented by Amos Clifford, one of the world's most experienced forest bathing experts--that you can use to begin a practice of your own. Whether you're in a forest or woodland, public park, or just your own backyard, this book will be your personal guide as you explore the natural world in a way you may have never thought possible.
