Nature Connection:

for healthy relationships with ourselves, others and the natural environment   

Look deep into nature, and then you will understand everything better

- Albert Einstein -

What is Nature Connection?

Liz Dawes Forest Bathing-58.jpg

Nature connection is:

  • the act of personally engaging with nature through sensory awareness;

  • having meaningful experiences with nature that support the health and wellbeing of both people and the planet;

  • the antidote to modern, stressful lifestyles

Through the forest therapy framework developed by ANFT, we offer programmes that are designed to

re-establish nature connection.
