THE LONG-AWAITED INTERNATIONAL FOREST THERAPY DAYS HYBRID EVENT IS BACK IN THE SUMMER OF 2023!
Who are we ?
The International Forest Therapy Days (shortly IFTDays) have been organized since 2018 as a not-for-profit initiative. We bring together individuals all around the world to represent a variety of disciplines from science and practice. We want to raise awareness of forest-based wellbeing and offer a space for learning, exchange, and reflection. Subscribe to mailing list HERE.
What are we doing?
This year we are exploring forest bathing beyond acute stress reduction interventions, nature connection practices, and group-based activities. We are inviting you to question and reflect together as we try to understand what it would mean if we LIVED A FOREST-BATHING WAY OF LIFE.
How & When?
June 6th & 7th: The Seminar Days
The online Seminar is honoring our tribe residing around the globe in different timezones by being split into morning and afternoon sessions: June 6th afternoon and 7th morning (CEST). Choose what suits you best!
We hope to welcome a diverse lineup of presenters and audiences from science, practice, art, religion, and contemplative practices. The language used in seminar days is English.
Summer months: The Immersion Days
As meeting each other face to face is a cornerstone of IFTDays, we have invited people from the IFTDays tribe to organise their own local events in the forest. The events are low-threshold: free of charge, easy to access, low-effort arrangement, and environmentally friendly. To connect the events to each other in the wrap-up session, we invite the immersion day events to reflect with their group on the theme of this year’s event: forest bathing as a way of life, and share with us at the online wrap-up session in September.
September 9th: The Wrap Up Day
On September 9th we will gather again online to discuss the findings we made in our live local events to weave a global story. We invite everyone to share their input and linger for a while in that cosy IFTDays atmosphere!
If you want to organise your own local immersion day event, register it through the following link before the end of May.
