Forest Therapy: A Journey Amongst the Trees.

Taking time to wander in the forest can be therapeutic to your well being. Forest therapy is a practice that promises benefits for mind and body. It can cleanse from the modern-day technology overload.

Forest therapy is rooted in the Japanese practice of Shinrin-yoku, which is often translated as "forest bathing." A term that refers to immersing yourself in the atmosphere of the forest.

The intent of forest therapy is to put you in touch with present-moment experiences within a meditative walk. The sights, sounds, and smells of the forest contribute to the experience so the brain stops anticipating, recalling, and worrying. Being immersed in the moment involves noticing and sensing things rather than judging or evaluating.
There is a tree on my favorite trail that looks like he has a big nose, I call him - The Wise One. He sits at the trail’s entrance and overlooks the forest valley welcoming all who enter. It is within this forest that I find peace meandering amongst the trees for they whisper the truths that I seek.
