What’s the movement set to surpass yoga in 2018? Forest bathing, or, in Japanese, shinrin yoku. Forest Bathing is so much more than just walking in the woods, but don’t take my word for it—take M. Amos Clifford’s. Clifford is the founder and Director of the Association of Nature and Forest Therapy Guides and Programs, and he’s dedicated to getting you reconnected to the world around you. In Your Guide to Forest Bathing: Experience the Healing Power of Nature, Clifford gives readers a background on the practice, an understanding of the significance of the forest environment, and tips and tricks on how to deepen your relationship to nature. City slickers, you’re covered as well: Clifford details how to practice in urban and suburban environments.

Already getting great reviews in the States, Clifford’s guide draws on his extensive experience as a wilderness guide, his years as a Zen practitioner, and even his degree in counselling and work on restorative justice. Foreword Reviews call it, “a beautiful exploration of forest bathing, a source of information on the medical and scientific evidence of its benefits, and a guide to all that’s needed for a fulfilling forest-bathing practice.” Find it at an indie near you!
