Rewilding: Healing for Mind, Heart, and the World

This episode features Jennifer “Juniper” Owens, the co-founder of Bridge Counseling and Wellness, an integrative mental health and holistic therapy center in Louisville, KY. Juniper reflected on how our deep connection to the rest of the natural world can help us through our own individual struggles and through the collective trauma we are experiencing with COVID-19. We explored the Japanese practice of shinrin yoku, or forest bathing, the idea of “rewilding mental health,” and pulled back the lens to reflect on what makes for lasting social and environmental change.
