My nature guidebook Fear Not The Forest offers information on preparing to be in a wilderness environment and incorporating the proven benefits of using the popular and simple Japanese practice of Shinrin-yoku (also known As Forest Bathing or Forest Therapy).
this is a simple technique of meditation, awareness and learning how to let go of the fear of being alone or in nature. It is life changing! We are part of the natural world and living in our modern lifestyles has separated us from it. Being in nature is actually our true home, we have lost sight of that.
