Emma Loewe is the co-author of The Spirit Almanac, and she is the senior sustainability editor for mindbodygreen, and she has released the amazing book, Return to Nature: The New Science of How Nature Landscapes Restore Us. In it, she shares the different kinds of landscapes, how they effect your mental health, studies about why they improve your mental health, and things you can do to counter-act the effects of climate change on these landscapes. This discussion fits so well into this month’s theme of “finding home,” and I hope you love this conversation about the return to nature with Emma Loewe.

Read the full show notes on my website.

In this episode, Emma Loewe and I talk about:

  • How the idea of this book came about
  • A profound memory Emma has of a maple tree in her yard growing up, and why many of us have anchoring memories that revolve around nature.
  • My resonance with the landscapes of oceans and coasts and forests and trees.
  • What a forest bath is, and how to experience one
  • The fractals in trees, and why that is soothing to humans
  • How to handle grief and anxiety over climate change in an effective and non-overwhelming way
