Description

Nature & Me - a new dawn

Forest Bathing Day is the brain child of the Association of Nature and Forest Therapy Guides and Programs, USA.

On 8 September 2018, certified nature and forest therapy guides from around the world will be hosting forest bathing walks and events across the globe! Connecting with Earth, nature and other nature enthusiasts, no matter the distance.

Forest Bathing Day @ SG 2018 emphasises the new dawn of our relationships with nature - an intentional connection with our urban forests, an immersive exploration of our land and ourselves, an informative discovery of our innate need to (re)connect with nature.

Join us at our talks on forest bathing and biophilia, and Singapore's inaugural screening of awarding-winning film 'Love Thy Nature'! You will also have the opportunity to go on a guided forest bathing walk with certified forest therapy guides!






"Love Thy Nature will light up your neurons, change your breathing, and deeply connect you to those you're with. The story will stay with you for a long time, because it's yours." - Wallace J. Nicholas, NY Times Bestselling Author



About the film

We’ve lost touch with nature. This disconnect hurts our health, dulls our spirit, and threatens our future. Narrated by Liam Neeson, Love Thy Nature is a cinematic journey through the beauty and intimacy of our relationship with the natural world. And it shows that a renewed connection with nature is key not only to our wellbeing, but also to solving our climate and environmental crises.
