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. 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, nature can yield surprising results.

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.

Totally agree with this. My wife and I have done a poor job, the last few years, enjoying the beauty around us. Being in nature is perfect.
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).
