Shinrin-yoku is a term that means “taking in the forest atmosphere” or “forest bathing.” It was developed in Japan during the 1980’s and has become a cornerstone of preventive health care and healing in Japanese medicine. Learn more about it HERE.
Michael Stusser brings 40 years of meditation practice and a lifetime of wilderness experience to his forest bathing guiding. He is a certified forest-bathing guide with the Association of Nature and Forest Therapy Guides and Programs (ANFT). He led a delegation to connect with the origins of the movement in Japan in the fall of 2017 with the organization’s founder Amos Clifford.
