“The forest is like our mother, a sacred place, a gift to us humans from the divine. It is a paradise of healing. Mother Nature fills us with wonder and curiosity and invites us in. She works in harmony with us and with our innate capacity for healing. This is the foundation of forest medicine. In the forest, we begin to reconnect with nature and journey towards health and happiness. The art of forest-bathing is the art of connecting with nature through our senses. All we have to do is accept the invitation. Mother Nature does the rest.”
-- Dr. Qing Li from his book “Forest Bathing”
