    The Innate Healing & Happiness Potential of a Walk in the Woods

    Shinrin-yoku translates as “Forest Bathing” – the mindful Yogic – (unifying) practice of assimilating the forest ambiance through the all senses: Touch, Sight, Scent, Sound And Taste. Most people would agree by simply being in forest imparts a sense of relaxation and well-being. Speaking personally, having lived, traveled and worked all over and specially Rishikesh, India( Yoga Capital of world). I have never felt healthier and deepest possible states of relaxation. My long felt experience of trees, animals, birds and forests verifies their beneficial effects on us. My spiritual and intuitive exploration of Nature is balanced with a thirst to understand how the healing occurs on an attainable basis.
