NATURE AND FOREST THERAPY WITH DR. YOSHI NEWMAN
“The forest is the therapist. The guide opens the doors.”

Founder, The Association of Nature and Forest Therapy
What is Nature and Forest Therapy?
Nature and Forest Therapy is a research-based therapeutic practice for supporting healing and wellness through immersion in forests and other natural environments.
It’s not taking a hike. It’s not exercise. It’s not a walk with a Naturalist. It’s not meditation.
It is a unique experience that nothing else provides.
I’M DR. YOSHI NEWMAN.
I’m an Educational Psychologist certified in Emotional Intelligence & Nature and Forest Therapy.
I lead people on walks through the forest and provide invitations that are an opportunity for them to connect with nature in a way that very few people have.
We slow down. We get quiet. We pay attention and notice. We notice these incredible things that we’ve never noticed before.
When we experience that kind of connection, we develop a reciprocal relationship with nature.
We have a better understanding of nature taking care of us and us taking care of nature.
Experience the natural world and the benefits of time spent in the forest.
Connect with nature using prescriptions you can do no matter where you are.
