Walking in nature can feel like reconnecting with an old friend. The forest’s restorative properties benefit our minds, bodies and souls; alleviating the stresses many of us feel in our modern lives. Earth, our magnanimous provider, continues to offer us spaces of healing in this pivotal time. As temperatures rise and nature responds to our increasingly harsh treatment, the steps we take today serve as a reminder of our role to protect the future of our planet and humankind.
In partnership with environmental organization Sierra Club and taking place at the Life is Beautiful music and arts festival in Las Vegas, Forest Bath was created for visitors to contemplate the relationship between ourselves and the natural world. Taking inspiration from the Japanese practice of “Shinrin-Yoku” (meaning “forest bathing”), festival goers were invited to wander, reflect and relax in sound and visuals drawn from Earth’s healing resonances and beauty.
Throughout the weekend, over 15K visitors came through Forest Bath and signed up to join Sierra Club in the fight against climate change.
