Meditating has a positive effect on body and mind. Just like a walk through the forest. The relieves stress, boosts the immune system, lowers blood sugar, improves concentration and generally brightens the mood. Nothing is more obvious than to combine meditation with a stay in the forest. And that’s exactly what we did, working with the meditation app 7Mind to develop a forest meditation.

A walk through the forest – or a meditation with forest sounds – does us good. Relaxes us. Lets us calm down.
And forests do so much more for us. They host 80 percent of all species living on land. For millions of people in extreme poverty, they ensure survival. Indispensable they determine water cycles and world climate.
Since November 2020, we have been working together with 7Mind to raise awareness about the importance and performance of our forests.
