Apart from forest therapy guide (in training), I am also a storyteller and work with themes like transformation, restoring ties with family and nature and intercultural exchange. Since childhood I am very fascinated by myths, which are stories that a culture holds sacred in terms of its origins, and a myth is one that is regarded as important and retold from one generation to the next. Although forest therapy is a culture-neutral practice, I am also experimenting with a combination of forest therapy and then creating a space for sharing myths, which are especially about nature.
In addition, I am also a scholar and pursue since fall 2017 a PhD in environmental studies, with focus on preservation of materials, in Japan. I also like to provide more information about the science behind forest therapy.
