The mysticism of forests has been known for centuries. Indeed, some ancient civilizations believed in the spirits of the trees and in some modern philosophies (developed from ancient beliefs like Druidism) trees are sacred. The trees, the undergrowth, the beautiful plants and flowers, the wildlife and the magical ways light moves are what make forests special and they’re a wonderful place to commune not only with nature but oneself.
