The Voice of Change welcomes AMos Clifford to speak on: Eros in the outdoors: the healing practice of forest bathing.

Amos Clifford is a wilderness guide, deep nature connection mentor, and ecotherapist living in Sonoma County. He is a leading advocate in the United States for the practice known in Japan as shinrin yoku, or “forest bathing.” Amos has been leading people into natural settings for over 40 years, developing ways to quickly connect people with an ancestral awareness of the more-than-human world. He holds a masters in counseling from the University of San Francisco and is the founder of Sky Creek Dharma Center, Infinite Wild, the Center for Restorative Process, and shinrin-yoku.org.

Forest bathing, known as “shinrin yoku” in Japan, is the practice of opening our senses to the natural environment for an immersive experience with a wide range of research-validated healing effects. But does it also have implications for sustainability? Amos Clifford, the presenter, thinks so. “The foundation of sustainability is not in discovering new technologies; it is in re-establishing our relationships with nature,” Clifford says. This program will reveal a powerful set of practices for promoting wellness in people and the environment.
