Introduction to Forest Bathing with Alex Gesse, Nicole Elmgart, Shirley Gleeson & Oskar Elmgart
In this webinar, you will learn to plan nature-based activities informed and supported by science, in a way that can enhance the holistic benefits of these experiences.
We will touch on part one of the 5×5 Model, an exclusive tool by the Forest Therapy Institute, that will support you in making evidence-based and informed decisions when developing and designing Forest Bathing walks and Forest Therapy interventions, retreats, workshops, programs, etc.
FTI’s unique 5×5 Model was developed from research conducted with 121 Forest Therapy Practitioners, scientists, land managers and health professionals from 28 countries on the core skills, knowledge, and experience necessary to be a world-class guide.
