Shinrin-Yoku: Forest Bathing

Dec 8, 2022-- Hopefully you have a little piece of green forest--a kind of a heaven on earth-- where you can find peace. If so, you already have experienced the health benefits of soaking up the beauty of nature. Forest bathing, in Japan where the practice originated, is called shinrin-yoku. This is the practice of walking through the forest slowly and quietly as a way to heal body, mind and spirit. This film, made by Sharecare Films Production, takes you on a first-person experience of the practice of forest bathing through fern laden, old growth forests; bamboo groves with the rain falling on the hollow stems; and hemlock stands over a hundred feet tall with birds singing all around.
