AUGUST FOR HEALING
Forest Bathing Ritual
In Japan during the 80’s, a healing technique called Shinrin-yoku (taking in the forest’s atmosphere) came to be. There is no better feeling than receiving from the forest.
Arrive to the forest prepared with : essential oil based bug repellent; (we like de la heart’s natural bug repellent) an open mind and heart, and time.
Upon arrival, bend down to the earth and put your hands and feet on the ground. Introduce yourself and thank her (mother earth) for all she gives us. Proceed to walk, sit, jump, and play.
When you leave the forest, put your hands back on the ground and thank mother earth again. You may journal about this experience or keep it in your heart.
