In the midst of an urban sprawl, Cyndi Gilbert lost touch with nature, only to rediscover it through the Japanese practice of Shinrin Yoku, or forest bathing. While explaining how to get started, Gilbert details the health benefits of Shinrin Yoku, from restoring Vitamin D to balancing your microbiome, along with the rich mental and emotional rewards that spending time surrounded by trees can offer. Forest bathing is a restorative, meditative activity for those who practice it by themselves, but Gilbert also explores the benefits of practicing in community with family and friends.
