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. Thank you for the extraordinary way you capture and convey the energy of the forest, and for your obvious devotion to our beautiful Earth and its forests. Your videos bring back the energy of the forest, they breathe it back to life in my heart, reigniting my connection and love of the woods. I moved to the wooded foothills of the Sierra Nevada for a year after a 3 year nervous breakdown, where I walked the forest paths every night until 2, 3, or even 5 a.m. I would consciously open every cell in my body to receive the energy of the Earth, the trees, the sky, and the moon. I let my heart run free and wild with delight and the constant revelation of the divine pouring through the natural world around me. Here is a poem I wrote,

    Morning Light
    The morning spreads its sweet gold
    over a broadleaf sea of forest oak,
    Spinning white, angel-haired wonder through the pine.

    Like the trees, I will spread my leaves
    in silent welcome,
    Opening every cell
    to receive the warm, quiet rush
    of the new day.


    1. Hello again, Nitin,
      I wonder if you or anyone on your team might be interested in reviewing my memoir when it is released in October? It maps my inner journey to the Sierra Nevada forest, where I would walk the woods at night, often until dawn. Here is a brief description, if that helps: Entering the River Naked: Field Notes from the Feminine Wild is a memoir mapping the wilds of one woman’s heart in relentless pursuit of the sacred. Through evocative dreams, poetry and journal pieces, author Ann Shannon faces down her core angst, failing marriage, and misery in her career on her way to the Sierra Nevada forest. There, she begins nightly sojourns through the woods that often last until dawn. As Shannon lays claim to a majestic and tender new life that mirrors the ecstatic beauty of the Earth and sky around her, she offers exhilarating glimpses into the power of nature and the unbridled feminine to inform and to heal. (I don’t mean to presume anything…I just want to check. It is a intimate personal story celebrating the beauty and healing available us in the forest.) Thank you, Ann


    2. Beautiful, i could picture it in my mind.
      Soon i will be moving to a woodland, i long to rest in Gods creation.
      Thank you for the beautiful poem.
