The Association of Nature and Forest Therapy Guides and Programs is the most experienced global leader promoting the development and practice of Forest Therapy. Guide Training draws on the latest medical research, new developments in the field of nature connection, and ancient traditions of mindfulness and wellness promotion. Every guided walk is an act of power and beauty, cultivating deep connections with transformational impacts on people and nature.
In Forest Therapy, there is a clearly defined sequence of guided events that provides structure to the experience, while embracing the many opportunities for creativity and serendipity offered by the forest and the individual inspiration of each guide. This practice, developed under the leadership of M. Amos Clifford, founder, with contributions from many other guides, has become the most-widely used framework for Forest Therapy in the world; as of the end of 2018 we have trained over 700 guides who are guiding this practice in 46 countries.
