‘Also known as Shinrin-Yoku, refers to the practice of spending time in forested areas for the purpose of enhancing health, wellness, and happiness. It is a practice of connection with the natural world and with each other. A series of guided invitations bring us into the present moment, opening the doors of communication with the forest, waters, and landscapes we explore. We encounter not just the forest, but through the many ways nature mirrors us, we also encounter ourselves.’

It has been proven to boost the immune system, reduce blood pressure and stress and increase energy levels and improve mood.
I took the photo of the moss on the tree walking along Deer Creek in Nevada City California, after a deluge so that I could watch the swollen river in spate. How often do we do these things? As soon as you do, you want to do them more often, but life gets in the way.
