There’s a revolutionary new way to walk through the forest. V-e-r-y slowly.
Take a few steps. That’s far enough. Now sit down and talk it over with the person next to you, for a long time.
It’s a New Age thing in Sonoma County. Walking very slowly through the forest — while thinking about walking very slowly through the forest — is a full-blown movement. It could be a paradigm. The people who do this call it “forest bathing.” It doesn’t involve actual bathing, the kind with water. It’s figurative bathing. You soak in the wonders of the forest. Take your time, a whole lot of it. And bring a cushion.
