A joyful and insightful invitation to reconnect with forests. Amos Clifford is an outstanding guide to deepening our relationships within the community of life.-- "David George Haskell, author of The Songs of Trees and Pulitzer finalist"
The scientific data confirming the mental, emotional, and biophysical benefits of forest bathing are most exciting and validating to me as an integrative physician. However, what makes this book rise to excellence is how Amos Clifford describes the experience of forest bathing so that your heart poetically engages. His writing magically unites us with the healing rhythms of nature to dissolve lingering issues and bring about profound peace of heart.-- "Philip Barr, MD, Duke Integrative Medicine"
Amos Clifford has given us a beautiful and inspiring guide inviting us to seek out the trees and let the healing happen, both for us and for our beleaguered ecosystems. Grab this book and head outside.-- "Florence Williams, author of The Nature Fix"

I teach and practice meditation, but I find forest bathing infinitely "easier". Rather than having to tune out my senses, I get to use, and dare I say, enjoy them! As someone who lives in an overstimulating urban environment, I appreciate a practice that lets me turn them back on -- which is apparently one of the big health benefits: improved attention and sensory regulation. (There are loads more; read the book!) Listening to the spring birds calling each other, watching the breeze carry the leaves in the canopy, sensing the squish of spring mud under my feet -- it just feels good and slows me down without me having to think about it so much. It's helped tons with my depression, anxiety, ADHD, Ehlers Danlo, neuroatypicalities, and sensory processing issues.
Also included is a somewhat radical notion: spending time in relationship with nature is a form of activism. It makes sense -- once you're out in nature, noticing the connections and the ecosystem, it's harder to feel separate from it. I've noticed I've been making little changes that are good for the environment without really thinking about it -- I'm just a little more aware of how my actions affect the world around me.
The best part of the book is that Clifford clearly has a deep relationship with and affection for the "more-than-human" world. It's inspiring. Highly recommend this book for anyone looking for a pretty easy way to unwind from modern life.
I gave up reading before finishing its content. I'll donate it to my library as others may be interested in the subject matter.
