“The forest is for me a temple, a cathedral of tree canopies and dancing light.”

Dr. Jane Goodall

A prescription to nature is sometimes all we need to elevate the mood.

The Japanese use the word “SHINRIN-YOKU” or forest bathing, to describe all the benefits from walking among trees in order to relax.

The multitude and magnitude of forest trees are equally confounding.

As they say, one “can’t see the forest for the trees.” We must walk through the forest while keeping in mind the big-picture view.
