Last summer around this time, I had just finished my Forest Therapy Guide Training Intensive and as I began my practicum, I was spending lots of time at my sit spot, which is a natural place that I chose to visit regularly at the Arnold Arboretum.  During this time I would observe the more-than-human world, noticing all kinds of dramas unfolding that I could only vaguely begin to understand as I sat by a particular tree next to a marsh.

My relationship with this spot inspired me to learn about bird language and I have finally got around to begin reading “What The Robin Knows” by Jon Young.  In the introduction, Jon writes:

“As awareness grows, appreciation grows too. As appreciation grows, so does empathy.”
