Four Eccentric Ways Trees Can Heal You

More tree love, and, um, yeah … guess I am pretty eccentric. 😉 I have regularly engaged in all of these ways since childhood, and I can honestly say, they work!

Fauns, elves, pixies, ghouls, trolls – the image of forests and woodlands arouse many feelings of mystery and intrigue.  Not only do forests bring to mind mythical creatures, but they’re also the home of countless folklore tales and superstitions.  Did you know that the Druids and the Germanic Pagans used to worship trees?  No wonder the forest, in all its ethereal splendor, is the perfect place for us to take solitary strolls.

Interestingly, forests also provide the perfect place to holistically heal ourselves.  All our daily tensions, struggles and woes can perish through some simple forest therapy.  We all have forests, bush-lands, and woodlands near us.  But how can we make the best out of these erudite ecosystems?  You’ll find some suggestions below.

    Yup. It’s actually ‘normal’, in my mind. Not engaging with our forest friends is unnatural, and unhealthy! Hoping for a few nice days off next week get some forest therapy in. 😉

    So much of this post I relate to. After caring for my bedridden mom for a year back in 2009-2010 I had the opportunity to move up north of Sonora. My roommate was a dear friend from high school that so lovingly offered to share her new place with me. It was on a private dirt road Tucked under all sorts of evergreens. I would sit out in the deck as much as possible. I hadn’t realized how much I hadn’t cared for myself during that time. It was the forest, the trees, the smells, the animals, the air that helped to bring me back to life. Took about a year. I’ll never forget that time and how all of those beings made me better
