Among Trees is for people looking to further enhance their experience with the Japanese art of shinrin-yoku. Fully illustrated with gorgeous photograph of the forest and its inhabitants, it allows avid - and beginning - forest bathers to record and reflect on their therapeutic trips into the woods. In addition to blank pages for capturing the date, season, weather, and location of specific outings, it will also feature simple, encouraging prompts. These prompts will inspire the user to describe the texture or shade of leaves, to explain the sounds of footsteps over different materials on the trail, to draw the animal life seen and heard, and much more. Inspirational quotes and sidebars on the benefits of forest bathing pepper the pages for added motivation and depth.
