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.

What People Are Saying....

Liz Dawes Forest Bathing-53.jpg

"Through a series of invitations Liz guided me, gently bringing me into communion with the forest which was profound and completely immersive. I found true connection there, felt the consciousness of the trees and rocks, and understood for perhaps the first time in my life that not only can we be at one with Nature, but that Nature wanted to know me and yearns to be in harmony with us."

— Gary Breeze, Lettering Sculptor & Winner of 2 Gold Medals at Chelsea Chelsea Flower Show  —
