Tree Hugging may Promote Healing. A Close Up Video Experience with Sterling Sinclair on a Barefoot Walk in the Woods, October 17, 2017
Trees are essential to my spiritual and physical health. Trees represent pure welcome – they cast no judgement upon us. They not only invite us to hug them, they hug us back. When I was was little (grade 3 & 4) I spent ours each day communing with trees, brooks, forest animals, fairies and the spirits I would meet there. The trees were my friends. They told me the most adventuresome stories. Even as my world became less protected at home and outside the forest, I felt total security being “alone” in the woods.
Now that I am 50 years old and live under a canope of nut trees reaching over 80 feet into the sky, I still have the same relationships with trees and the forest. It could be my indigenous ancestry that has guided me so strongly to trees but I think that anyone can be drawn to a tree just as strongly, if not more, as me.
Science behind tree hugging:
“Tree Hugging Scientifically Proven
It has been recently scientifically validating that not only hugging trees is good for you, but you don’t even have to to touch a tree to feel better…. Blinded by Science is a recently published book, by author Matthew Silverstone, that proves scientifically that trees improve many health issues that we have. Trees help with issues such as concentration levels, depression, reaction times, different forms of mental illness, and stress. Silverstone even points to research that has strong indications that a tree has the ability to alleviate headaches in human beings.”

This video link is of me returning from hugging the tree. I am walking barefoot in the woods. How about you try walking in the woods barefoot too. It is an enriching feeling of being alive.
