Healing Forest offers a simple way to renew your mind, body, spirit amidst a mechanical life. It is a journey to learn the art of healing through nature and the science behind nature healing. Discover many different 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 calming nature 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. It’s funny how, for so many of us, the beauty of a forest tends to draw us. I feel a connection with trees and rocks and moss and creatures that is undeniable. Thank you for bringing this community together.

  2. Superb project for both environment and people. I love what your team is doing. Yes, forests and nature walks do really help in energizing and healing us. I remember, every summer time when we were kids until we became teenagers, we would travel by ship all the way from Metro Manila to visit our patenal grandparents in Sibuyan Island, Romblon. The island gave us a lot of opportunities to walk in a lush forest, cross streams and swim in a pristine river and the sea. I must say that such experiences are rejuvenating and memorable as they gave us a yearly dose of energy for the coming school year. Now that I am an adult, I really hope that I could make nature and forest walks a regular activity, or at best, live near a forest. More power to all of you! – Shenna (Metro Manila, Philippines).

  3. I get my strength from nature. When I am among pine trees, I feel as if I’m being embraced by them. Sadness disperses usually, but not always; Suddenly and swiftly, memories and my associated emotions come upon me, and I will think of the animal companions who have shared their lives with me, my soul indestinguishable from theirs. And then Blessed Peace; I feel their presence, and out of the corner of my eye, sometimes I will see a shadow then hear movement. Perhaps leaves moving or a twig snapping. Thank you for reading my letter of love. Peace, Linda the gentle vegan
