Clifford called it an “invitation.” Forest bathing walks are a series of invitations to do something, like “embody awareness” or “notice what you’re noticing” or “talk to a tree.”

“I want everybody to find a tree that’s your twin,” said Clifford. “Talk to your tree. Ask your twin about yourself. Find out all you can from your tree. Put your hand on your tree. Take your time to get to know your tree.”

“My tree asked me why I was so afraid,” said one forest bather.

“My tree said it thought that we could grow together,” said another forest bather.

Chuckles and I are without further words. Some viewing on this topic:

    When I read stuff like this I start thinking that maybe the end of western civilisation won’t be such a bad thing after all.

    Book pushing US style.

    His $15 paperback,
    “Your Guide to Forest Bathing,” has climbed like a trumpet vine to No. 3,726 on the Amazon best seller list.

    The Daily Mail does it all the time.
