What is Nature & Forest Therapy?
Nature And Forest Therapy (NAFT) is a research-based guided practice for supporting healing and wellness through immersion in forests and other natural environments.
Mental & emotional health
The forest is the therapist. The guide opens the doors
“I think it is for everybody…but anybody that is in pain or sad or struggling, think it’s even better for them”
“I highly recommend forest therapy as an opportunity to take a brief pause from the fast pace and abundant distractions of modern life. During my two hours at Rock Creek Park, I experienced tree limbs bowing to me (like waiters at a Japanese Restaurant), features on tree trunks that resembled pahoehoe lava at Craters of the Moon, the laughter of running water, and the choreography of snowflakes dancing around in the air. Forest therapy is a great way to improve your health, gain better insight and tuition, and become more observant.”
“…the direction from you… allowed me to notice things that I normally wouldn’t have noticed.”
“Forest bathing brings you into the present, in current time and place. It de-stresses and centers the soul. You will feel energized, grounded, freeing you to move forward with more clarity and purpose. I was surprised to feel the love and support from nature. I will incorporate nature in my regular self-care on a regular basis because of this experience.”
“…it brings great peace and a beautiful sense of knowing that I am supported, loved and a part of something bigger than myself. This knowing creates power to move forward in creating greater connection in all my relationships.”
