Inspired by the Japanese practice Shinrin-yoku (forest bathing), forest therapy enhances one’s health and wellbeing through connection to, and interaction with, the natural world. Forest therapy follows a sequence of guided invitations that provide structure while embracing opportunities for creativity and serendipity. Each experience is a chance to explore and cultivate a deepening relationship to nature.
