The following presents a series of questions urging you to reflect on your own experience, understanding, and relationship to nature.
Take a few moments to sit with and meditate upon each question. When you feel ready to move on, scroll down to the next question.
What is nature? What is it that comes in between you and nature? Where did you go the last time you went out in nature? How far is the distance between yourself and nature? Where does nature start and where does it end?
How old are you? What is your earliest memory of nature? When did nature start and when does it end? When does nature stop existing? What can you learn from nature's existence?
What does nature sound, taste, smell, feel, and look like? How do you feel in nature? How do you benefit from nature?
"Forest bathing is based on the Japanese term shinrin-yoku (森林浴 ), which was coined by Tomohide Akiyama of the Japanese Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry, and Fisheries in 1982, in part as a way beyond logging to garner value from the forest. In Japanese, the term comprises three kanji characters—the first character is composed of three trees and means “forest,” the second character is two trees and refers to the inter connectedness of the forest, and the third character connotes the luxury of being fully engulfed in the abundance that surrounds you"(4)
How would you describe your relationship with nature? How has your relationship changed with nature? How can you improve your relationship with nature?
