Dear nature-lovers,

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

Effects of Shinrin-Yoku (Forest Bathing) and Nature Therapy on Mental Health: a Systematic Review and Meta-analysis

Please read the article before Week 1 session. We will discuss WHAT, HOW, WHY during Week 1.

Enjoy reading!
Warm regards,


Dear all,

For this week, I would like to ask you to think about ethical aspects of becoming a forest bathing guide.

Please think about the following:

  1. In the context of forest bathing, what do you think ethics may refer to?
  2. What would be the most appropriate ethical guidelines in forest bathing guiding?

We will begin Week 2 session with discussing these questions.

Warm regards,
