HOW TO BECOME A FOREST
Discover new ideas from nature, that fill your life with calm, clarity, creativity, and good health. In a complicated world, learn how to create mindful nature experiences, for yourself and your loved ones.
NATURE’S HEALING SECRETS
The most precious gift in life is a peaceful mind and a healthy body. But life is seldom in our control. It has setbacks, lessons, heartbreak and loss. In addition, stressful lifestyles, unhealthy habits, and addictive screens put a lot of pressure on our system. Over time, it affects our physical and mental health as well as our relationships.
Therefore, learning to care for your head and heart, body and soul, is an invaluable skill. Nature makes it easy as well as engaging for all ages.
So how do you tap into the healing powers of nature? How do you give yourselves the breaks you deserve?
