Dear all,

I would like to introduce you to a very recent research article on the effects of forest bathing.

The article is rather lengthy - please try to read the abstract, introduction, and discussion sections of the article.

Enjoy reading!
Warm regards,


Dear all,

Welcome to Week 1. My name is Milena and you will meet me on weekly basis for 15 weeks. Pleasure to meet you.


Please prepare a TMT notebook for the purpose of this training. You are expected to note down your reflections and answers to activities in it.


Write a 500-word piece or more on participation in nature. Participation process explores how we can experience and be present in natural spaces. The process of participation facilitates a movement between an outer and inner experiences. Connecting to nature via a sensory engagement is very important for both our mental health and to awaken a sense of vitality and aliveness.

Send it to The Mindful Tourist by email before Week 2. In the subject line write [Level-2 Conversion, Assignment Week 1]. If you need more time, please communicate it directly to me.
