Forest Bathing: Living and Healing

In a beautiful photo journal, photographer Patricia Ahearn and writer Lisa Zschuschen combine talents to introduce others to the world of forest bathing, a Japanese-based concept that promises its followers relaxation, whole-body health benefits, and a renewed sense of purpose, simply by walking in the woods, using all five senses. In their own words, Ahearn and Zschuschen explain what forest bathing has meant for them, their family, and their health and include commentary from residents, medical doctors, and wellness professionals. Ahearn’s photographs showcase local natural beauty and highlight nature in its most pristine form.
