The Healing Forest

For thousands of years our ancestors hunted, gathered, and survived in the wilderness. Endless grasslands, dense forests and vast stretches of green were an integral part of a place we called home.

But in today’s world, the green spaces are replaced by urban structures, crowded places and polluted environments. This rapid change puts an unwanted pressure on our body and mind. As a result we have seen that chronic illnesses, stress, depression, anxiety, burnout and other ailments are on the rise. Also as a society, there is an increase in apathy, anger, addictions, intolerance, and loneliness.

Let’s see what nature can do for you, and those who matter to you. Countries around the world are uncovering scientific proof about nature’s healing effects. Japan and South Korea have even created many healing forests where they practice forest bathing or healing forest walks. For our overloaded minds and overworked bodies, healing in nature can yield surprising results. Watch this 5 minute film and learn how.


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

So how do we transform our connection with nature in a way that transforms us? How can we start sowing the seeds of peace, kindness, and health in the world around us?

Calm for your mind, body, life

As humans, we have evolved in nature. It’s what makes us feel complete. Multiple research on nature’s healing powers have shown a wide variety of benefits for our physical, mental, and social health. It provides an easy and effective way for avoiding stress, anxiety, burnout, depression, as well as reducing their ill-effects. Connecting with nature boosts our body’s immunity, energy levels, and healing ability. It can improve our mood, sleep, memory as well as focus. Nature activities also have a healthy influence on our emotional well-being and relationship skills.

  1. Estimados,
    Soy de Pucón, Chile. Nos hace falta tener el video “How forests heal people” subtitulado en español. Podemos cooperar con la traducción, pues tenemos una excelente traductora entre nosotros. Hay posibilidades?, como podemos proceder?
    Gracias
    Saludos atentos

    • That’s a really good idea. I would love to watch this film with a Portuguese subtitle as well. I am a Brazilian Ecologist currently living in Cambridge, UK and I voluntary myself to translate the video to Portuguese. Looking forward to hearing from you!

  2. I have always looked up towards nature whenever my inner world is messed up, when I am sad, when I am angry, when I am lonely, basically when I want to rid myself of all these negative emotions. Nature inspires me, motivates me whenever I get stuck. No 1 person has ever helped/supported me emotionally so much as nature did. And I am forever grateful to realise the fact that as long as we are there nature is there because we are nature, we are all interconnected.
