Partner with nature for new ideas, ways of working, stress management and relaxation.

Forest Bathing Switzerland’s is a growing network of certified guides in Switzerland specially trained to partner with nature to guide participants to discover the forest’s gifts.

Our purpose is

to return people to nature

to open new possibilities

and core healing.

We believe the forest is a partner (not a destination) for restoring connection with the natural world, oneself and with others. Reconnecting with nature heals relationships and reconnects communities.

Trained with nature facilitation, outdoor embodiment skills and wilderness first aid, we lead individuals and groups of all sizes. We offer nature-inspired invitations for new ideas and group collaboration.

Daniela Weber

Among other things, Daniela Weber is a certified guide for forest bathing. As a rational (“head person”) and feeling person, she knows both worlds, which she regularly balances in her life; because both parts want to be lived.
