In this episode I'm joined by editor and author, Emma Loewe. In her newest book, Returning to Nature, Emma aims to help us reconnect to the earth like our health depends on it. From the ancient ritual of forest bathing, grounding, simple ways to bring nature into your home, and finding ways to connect to the earth in the midst of chaos, this episode is your go-to guide for harnessing the health benefits of nature and understanding this profound connection we often ignore.

Emma Loewe is an editor and author based in New York City. She is the senior sustainability editor at mindbodygreen, the author of Return to Nature: The New Science of How Natural Landscapes Restore Us, and the co-author of The Spirit Almanac: A Modern Guide To Ancient Self Care
