The Medicine of Being in the Forest: Shinrin-yoku
Episode 111: In this episode, I talk with wilderness guide and educator Amos Clifford about Forest Therapy or Shinrin-yoku. Also known as Forest Medicine or Forest Bathing, Shinrin-yoku is beneficial for your health and has been shown to increase white blood cell counts, decrease stress hormones, lower blood pressure, and improve people’s moods.
No forest nearby? Amos also talks about how to connect with Nature no matter where you are and shares tips and techniques for slowing down and improving your relationship with the natural world.
Learn how taking a slow walk in nature can improve your health, how to cultivate a better relationship to the natural world, and the effect that deforestation has on us in this conversation with Amos Clifford.
