A transporting and engaging guide to the art of forest bathing for anyone who wants to explore the power of connecting with nature and experience the transforming benefits it has to offer, such as a chance to slow down, quietly reflect, spark creativity, and emerge refreshed and relaxed. As the stresses of our fast-paced, hyper-connected lives grow, more and more people are searching for a way to unplug and unwind, and many are turning to forest bathing. Forest bathing is a traditional Japanese practice of luxuriating in nature and is practiced throughout the world to increase health and restore wellbeing. But an actual forest isn't necessary to experience the power of a forest bath--a little perspective and local park or backyard is all you need. Julia Plevin offers a guide through a forest bath, from preparing for the journey and accessible activities to do while forest bathing, to incorporating the inspiring benefits of time spent in nature--a calm mind, relaxation, energy, and creativity--into the rest of your daily life. The Healing Magic of Forest Bathing provides tools to help you connect with nature and experience all of the benefits Mother Earth is waiting to give you.
