I’ve heard that us, humans, are also a part of nature. We often think of ourselves as separate from nature, and it’s an interesting concept to consider that we are nature just as much as trees are nature! The grounding ability of the earth beneath our feet… the leaves are greener, the trees are quieter, and the stillness is felt as a permeable presence. That’s the presence of the ancient trees, the elementals of the earth, who knows its crystaline waters, and understands the movements of the planet.. the history of humans…

In the summer and autumn, I’ve lead forest bathing with qi gong outdoors (socially distancing) in Toronto, leading participants through a guided practice so we can really be present with our environment. We allow the joy to emerge from within. The rustle of the leaves, the gentle rays of the sun, quiet footsteps, and the feel of the bark in the hands…

I often hear people say how they wish they could spend more time outside or outdoors, well this is the time to take walks! Take a break and a walk outside, within safety precautions.
