Forest Bathing: The Rejuvenating Practice of Shinrin Yoku explores the traditional Japanese concepts of forest bathing to help readers understand and share in the benefits of this cornerstone of healing and health care in Japan. These concepts include:  yugen - our living experience of the world around us that is so profound as to be beyond expression; komorebi - the interplay of leaves and sunlight; and wabi sabi - rejoicing in imperfection and impermanence.

From the healing properties of phytoncides (self-protective compounds emitted by plants) to the ways we can benefit from what forest spaces can teach us, this book discusses the history, science and philosophy behind this age-old therapeutic practice. 160 pages.
