Shinrin Yoku: Japanese Forest Bathing

Shinrin-Yoku is a traditional Japanese practise of immersing oneself in nature. Translated as “forest bathing” or “taking in the forest atmosphere”, it involves a full sensory immersion by mindfully activating all of our senses as we move through a natural environment, putting the body before the mind throughout the experience. We speak with Stefan Batorijs, a nature therapist in Devon, UK bringing the ancient Japanese wisdom to communities to build spiritual and psychological connections to nature, and educate on how we can learn to respect and include nature in our lives more deeply. Roots & Ritual is a Trippin production. Trippin is an independent platform that connects travel, culture and creativity like never before, collaborating with our community to uncover stories that are found at the intersection of social and cultural boundaries. Produced by Yasmin Shahmir & Robyn Landau Edited by Ami Bennett Translated by Sara Ene Music by Project Gemini track “The Ritual”
