Healing Forest is a journey to learn the art of healing from nature, and know the science behind nature healing. We share ideas that bring you, and forests closer to each other.  Join us in this exploration of fascinating forests and their remarkable healing powers.

Our aim is simple. Helping people heal. Helping Forests heal.

Forests are known to have great healing properties. As humans, we have evolved in nature. It’s where we feel most comfortable. New research on healing powers of nature show multiple benefits for our mental health, relieving stress, anxiety, high blood pressure, and depression. It boosts our body’s immunity, energy levels and healing ability and improves our mood, sleep, and concentration. Being in nature has a direct influence on our social relationships and emotional well-being.

Countries like South Korea and Japan have designated healing forests. Forests that one can go to find calm, balance and good health. Forests that help people recover, relax and revive.

Just like the forest, this site has many beautiful secrets. The more you explore, the more you will find. If this idea interests you, please subscribe to this blog with your email.

Healing in Nature

Here are some of the things we hope to do:
Organize healing nature walks. Help people learn how to find peace, purpose and healing in nature. Share forest wisdom of the elders. Bring out new films and articles on various forest games, nature meditations and mindfulness activities. Publish stories from amazing places. Discover fascinating forests that can serve as healing forests. Do action projects that give back to nature. Create conscious communities.

Healing from nature

  1. Often on the weekends when I’m feeling tired from work and a tad disillusioned with life, I get in my car and drive out to the trees. I’m fortunate to live on the Mornington Peninsula in Victoria Australia and we live fairly close to farmlands. There are avenues of gums, pines and many others and as soon as I see them, a wave of calmness & reassurance washes over me and I become excited about life again. They are my protectors and comforters. Recently when I was only working a few days a week, a friend and I would go walking each morning with the sole purpose of looking for something in nature that was awesome. Whether it was a gnarled old tree, a beautiful bird, a dried out leaf, an alpaca in her woolie pjamas or a interestingly coloured rock or a dragon shaped cloud in the sky. It was so easy to find something to show each other and to be amazed by. We called our walks ‘ Looking for Awe’ and I wish I had the time to take everyone out to the fields or farms and encourage everyone to just look and experience that simple pleasure one can get everywhere from nature around us. It somehow puts everything into perspective and helps me realise that life is good.

    1. I can relate to what you are saying, I often take my shoes off and walk slowly and mindfully, looking at the trees feeling the buzz of the bush on my bare feet, I always come away refreshed.


  2. It’s is only being in the forest or being with nature that makes me feel alive. I spend every moment I can learning and exploring.
    I encourage families to get out and learn about our trees, nature and natural resources. Our children are missing out because it is easier sometime to give them an electronic device to play with. Instead of getting outside and learning about our world, how beautiful and amazing it is. Nature wants us to take our place and be at one with it.

    If we can do this it will make us and our children better people and the world a better place.
