Shinrin Yoku Immersion in the Woods pushes us to search for the communion between man and nature. The term Shinrin-Yoku, or ’forest bath’, coined in Japan in the 1980s by the director of the Japanese forestry agency, refers to immersing yourself in nature with the five senses. The forest, the forest, are a state of consciousness: the condition in which every desire flows effortlessly towards its fulfillment. Shinrin-Yoku today is increasingly known and appreciated as preventive therapy. Immersion in nature has scientifically proven therapeutic effects: it is able to reduce the concentrations of the stress hormone in the body, to strengthen the immune system, to regulate blood pressure and heart rate, to lower cholesterol. Shinrin-Yoku is an adventure of deep communion with nature. It is practiced in many ways, but the most traditional one is walking and meditation in the woods or in the forest. In this book there are the practical keys of the relationship with the forest that gives creativity. The forest is a call to action, so the best way to understand what is exposed in this book is to practice the immersion rituals it describes.
