Natural Notes~ A Writer's Blog
Have you been hearing lately that spending time in nature is helpful? Beth Rennig recently completed a certification as a Forest Therapy Guide, and has written an article that helps explain how nature and working with energy can be a huge help to us. “As a certified Reiki Master practitioner and Forest Therapy Guide, I am passionate about helping people connect with their own healing processes and with the natural world.“ “Forests provide two essential elements that help our biology, oxygen, and phytoncides, which are chemicals found in plants' natural oils that act as a plant's defense system. In guided forest walks, I invite people to have experiences that help them engage their senses more deeply with the trees, plants, and the natural world around them. Anyone can do this practice on their own, even in their yard. Besides the physical benefits of forest bathing, being in a small group of like-minded people and spending more time in nature can help lift our mood and make us feel more connected. I believe forest bathing is essential for us to cope with the post-pandemic stress, and it can help our children who are suffering from nature deficit disorder.

CLIMATE CHANGE or A CLIMATE FOR CHANGE?
CLIMATE CHANGE or A CLIMATE FOR CHANGE? On Earth Day 2021, listen to the voices of our youth. Listen to the impassioned plea by Greta Thunberg, set to an animation by the talented Mei Li for AD Lubow. Thunberg spoke these words extemporaneously at the United Nations. #climatechange#climateaction#GretaThunberg#adlubow#unitednations
Lesson From The Forest #2: PUT DOWN ROOTS. And Hold On Tight.
In 1985, The New Yorker published a piece on Dr. Peter and Bonnie Ahrens, the founders of the Mountaintop Arboretum. When asked about the local soil, Ahrens said it was no more than two feet deep over the bedrock. “So the trees up here put their roots out sidewise, and they interlock with other tree’s roots, forming something like an interwoven mat. That’s what keeps them from blowing over when the wind is strong.” Humans have been using trees for millennia without fully understanding them. But when the environment gets rocky and communities lose ground, we’d be wise to learn from the forest and hold on tight to each other. #LessonsFromTheForest #WellnessRx -A.D. Lubow. A. D.
