Publisher's Summary

The definitive guide to the therapeutic Japanese practice of shinrin-yoku, or the art and science of how trees can promote health and happiness.

Notice how a tree sways in the wind. Run your hands over its bark. Take in its citrusy scent. As a society, we suffer from nature deficit disorder, but studies have shown that spending mindful, intentional time around trees - what the Japanese call shinrin-yoku, or forest bathing - can promote health and happiness.

In this beautiful audiobook, Dr. Qing Li, the world's foremost expert in forest medicine, shows how forest bathing can reduce your stress levels and blood pressure, strengthen your immune and cardiovascular systems, boost your energy, mood, creativity, and concentration, and even help you lose weight and live longer.

Once you've discovered the healing power of trees, you can lose yourself in the beauty of your surroundings, leave everyday stress behind, and reach a place of greater calm and wellness.

absolutely loved

I am in love with this book and we'll be listening to it again purely to take notes. I feel so inspired to share this with my friends and family, as well as start leading my own forest bathing walks. I highly recommend reading this book, especially if you are someone who suffers from depression, anxiety, stress, or any form of inflammation.

Unexpected delight!

I came to this book as a fan of Ramon Tikaram's voice work as Dorian Pavus in Dragon Age: Inquisition, and as a druidic witch who love trees. The source material, coupled with Mr. Tikaram's voice is an absolute treasure. He is engaging, sincere, and draws you in with his narration. While I initially listened as a fan, I came away with an unexpected desire to learn more. A must-listen for people who are interested in nature, in our relationships to nature, and who are wanting to reconnect with the Earth. Lovely!
