Here at the Association of Nature and Forest Therapy, we are always pleasantly surprised by the caliber of people which are drawn to this work. Their inspirations, stories, and relationships to nature continue to propel us forward as we spread the importance of connecting to the Medicine of the Forest around the globe. We now have guides throughout the United States and Canada in North America, New Zealand in the Southern Hemisphere, and several countries throughout Europe. We recently conducted an interview with Forest Therapy Guide Alex Gesse of Portugal. Here Gesse shares with us what drew him to Nature and Forest Therapy and some of his inspiring experiences as being a Guide.
