The ANFT Way of Forest Therapy

As a thank you gift for subscribing to our email list, we'd like to share a free online booklet, The ANFT Way of Forest Therapy, written by M. Amos Clifford, the founder of the Association of Nature and Forest Therapy, and Ben Page, the former Director of Training and one of our most experienced trainers and mentors.

In this booklet you'll discover the unique approach we use for teaching forest therapy, and for guiding people on a forest therapy walk. Download the booklet in pdf format.
ANFT has developed a specific approach to forest therapy that is widely emulated around the world. As of the end of 2022, we have trained over 2060 guides who are working in 62 different countries on six continents. In every cultural context, the ANFT framework for forest therapy is providing the right combination of foundational structure and open-ended creativity for the practice to take root.

Guides learn the ANFT framework and the theory, philosophy, and skills to teach the practice effectively. Just as importantly, they learn a core set of principles and values, which are described in the book.
