“Shinrin Yoku,” which literally translates to “forest bathing,” refers to mindful walks in nature to relieve stress and realign our energies. It was invented by the Japanese Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries in 1982.
“‘Shinrin Yoku’, the Japanese art of forest bathing, is the most powerful remedy that provides us (along with) mother nature to regain balance and find inner peace and inspiration for an active and healthy life. .. In this book, we will explain how so many of the ills that afflict city dwellers have their roots in our disconnection from nature,” the authors write in the book.
The book, translated from Spanish by Kymm Coveney, offers advice “not only to be fully present and mindful in the forest, but also on how to harness that mindfulness at home” – even if home is the busiest and most populated city.
