Certified Nature and Forest Therapy Guide and founder of Nature Connection Guide, Duncan Murdoch presents on Forest Bathing with a Q&A

Forest Bathing is a research-based practice for supporting healing and wellness through immersion in forests and other natural environments. The decades old practice originated in Japan and is known as shinrin-yoku, which literally translates to “taking in the forest.” or “forest bathing”. Studies have demonstrated a wide array of health benefits, especially in the cardiovascular and immune systems, and for stabilizing and improving mood and cognition. Your Nature & Forest Therapy Guide builds on those benefits and looks beyond to what happens when we remember that we are a part of nature and intrinsically connected to all other beings in fundamental ways.
