Healing Forest is a learning journey to know the art of healing through nature and the science behind nature healing. Discover many new paths that lead to peace, purpose and good health. We share the best ideas and practices from across the planet. Through creativity and mindfulness we help you experience nature’s healing powers. Join us to explore fascinating forests and beautiful nature connection activities.

“Our aim is simple. Helping people heal. Helping forests heal.”

Countries around the world are uncovering scientific proof about the remarkable healing abilities of nature. Japan and South Korea have even developed the wonderful practice of forest bathing. With our overloaded minds, overworked bodies, and overwhelmed souls, returning to nature can yield surprising results. Here’s a short 5 minute video that shows you how.

As humans, we have evolved in nature. It’s where we feel most comfortable. Multiple research on the healing powers of nature has shown a variety of benefits for our mental, and physical health. It provides a simple and effective way for avoiding stress, anxiety, depression, as well as reducing their ill-effects. Connecting with nature boosts our body’s immunity, energy levels and healing ability. It improves our mood, sleep, memory as well as focus. Nature also has a soothing influence on our relationships and emotional well-being.

  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.
