People have been retreating to the woods for quiet, meditation, and inspiration for centuries. Recent research finds that time spent in the forest doesn’t just feel good but is, in fact, good for you. Inspired by the Japanese concept of forest bathing, poet Hannah Fries invites readers to bask in the company of trees, whether in a city park or a rural nature preserve.
Accompanied by beautiful forest photography, Forest Bathing Retreat—featured in the summer 2018 issue of A.T. Journeys—is a distinctive gift that invites frequent revisiting for fresh insights and inspiration, says the publisher. To quote our own vice president for conservation and Trail management, Laura Belleville, “The thoughtful compilation of poems, photos, stories, and perspectives is a beautiful reminder that our forests have contributed so much to our well-being and, if we cherish them, we will always reap the benefits.”
Hannah Fries, an award-winning poet, writer, and editor whose work has been featured in numerous publications, is a native of New Hampshire and a graduate of Dartmouth College on the A.T. and lives near the Trail in western Massachusetts.
