I came across the most beautiful book while doing some healing work at my friend’s house. Shinrin-Yoku The Art and Science of Forest Bathing, by Dr Qing Li.
This simple yet beautifully wise books talks about the many many scientifically proven benefits of connecting with nature and offers simple practices to connect more deeply with nature. I have found that connecting with nature really soothes my soul and helps me embody an attitude of gratitude as I feel so abundant and whole when I am immersed in nature.
Next time you find your self in a forest or a place of nature try the above meditation. Let me know what you think, or please share any tips you have found work for you.
