Publisher's Summary

Penguin presents the audiobook edition of Shinrin-Yoku by Dr Qing Li, read by Ramon Tikaram.

Shinrin = Forest

Yoku = Bathing

Shinrin-Yoku, or forest bathing, is the practice of spending time in the forest for better health, happiness and a sense of calm. A pillar of Japanese culture for decades, Shinrin-Yoku is a way to reconnect with nature, from walking mindfully in the woods, to a break in your local park, to walking barefoot on your lawn. 

Forest Medicine expert Dr Qing Li's research has proven that spending time around trees (even filling your home with house plants and vaporising essential tree oils) can reduce blood pressure, lower stress, boost energy, boost immune system and even help you to lose weight. Along with his years of groundbreaking research and anecdotes on the life-changing power of trees, Dr Li provides here the practical ways for you to try Shinrin-Yoku for yourself.

Great introduction to shinrin yoku

A great book for beginners wanting to learn more about shinrin yoku. Dr. Li runs through both the scientific basis for shinrin yoku as well as the practicalities of how to do it alone, at home, and at work, amongst others. Clearly both a practitioner and studier of shinrin yoku, Dr. Li's insights and recommendations are just as valuable as the presentation of research offered.
