Waldeinsamkeit is a German word that describes the feeling of solitude and interdependence with nature when being alone in a forest. It is a compound word made of ‘der Wald’ (forest) and ‘die Einsamkeit’ (loneliness).
Similarly, there is the word “Waldbaden” (forest bathing), in which people connect with the forest through the senses. This concept actually originates from the Japanese term ‘Shinrin-Yoku’. Shinrin means “forest,” and yoku means “bath.” So shinrin-yoku means bathing in the forest atmosphere, or taking in the forest through our senses.
