Shinrin Yoku in Acadia with Sierra Club Maine

Shinrin Yoku, or ‘forest bathing’ is a Japanese practice of maintaining well being by seeking peaceful restoration in the forest. To help gain a sense of the ecologies in our new home in Downeast Maine, we joined Tara Hollander from the Maine chapter of the Sierra Club on a series of hikes to simply absorb the Maritime forests in Acadia National Park with all of our senses. Grandpa wrote a series of haiku inspired by the walks.
