    Forest therapy is a concept based upon the Japanese practice of shinrin yoku (“forest bathing”), the practice of immersing yourself in nature – or more specifically the forest – and connecting with the forest in a deep, mindful way that allows for inner and outer healing.
    The aims of a forest therapy walk are to get you out of your head, to get to know yourself better, and to learn to switch from the busy “doing mode” to a more relaxed being state.
    The forest is a retreat from frenzied everyday life and constant electronic presence.  The nature of the forest – its visual green relief, rawness, and natural scents – have real, researched health benefits.  We are naturally wired to be drawn there, to play there!
