Nature Connection:

for healthy relationships with ourselves, others and the natural environment   

 Those who contemplate the beauty of the earth find reserves of strength that will endure as long as life lasts.

 - Rachel Carson - 

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

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.


Never does Nature say one thing and Wisdom another

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  —

"The pure magic of forest bathing. Liz is an intuitive and tuned in facilitator who put me back in connection with nature in a 2 hour process. An utterly enriching experience which I can’t wait to do again


— Malcolm Stern (Group and individual psychotherapist and Co- Director and Co-founder of Alternatives at St James' Church in London) —
