Forest Therapy Trails

Design a trail with a certified expert

Forest Bathing Switzerland is a growing network of certified nature and forest therapy guides specially trained to partner with nature. We guide participants in an immersive experience so nature can reveal its’ 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.

Many different trainings formed her mind, gave her knowledge/skills and broadened her awareness. Learning and practicing will never stop for her.

Her body (the very sensitive nervous system) and nature are her great teachers. With deep empathy, she helps people to get back into their very own connection with body, mind and soul for more health, creativity, joy and easier access to inner knowledge/wisdom.

One of her heart projects is, to reconnect people with nature again.

You can find more information on her website: www.danielaweber.ch (with lots of suggestions/ideas and tips).
