BOLOGNA - The forest as a real 'pharmacy' available to man.
The "Way of the Forests" was born in collaboration with the National Park of the Casentinesi Forests, a project from an idea by Enrica Bortolazzi with the scientific supervision of Franco Berrino, founders of the association 'La grande via'.
The project The 'Way of the forests', consists in the retreat of one or more days of the participants that allows you to experience the awakening of the senses through contact with nature, nutrition, movement and meditation: the ingredients to achieve global health goal.
The 2022 forest bathing program 'La Via delle Foresta' opens on 14 and 15 May, with the first appointment, where participants will be joined in the experience by three special guides: Italo Bertolasi, photographer, Marcella Danon, writer, academic and psychologist and Katia della Fonte, art performer and painter.
Hundreds of people have already lived in the forest, day and night, experimenting under medical supervision the therapeutic effects of the microenvironment made vital by the presence of trees.
The groups will be guided in the path of the forests through a program of sensory activities: from walks to the contemplation of fractals, from listening to elements such as water and wind to macro-Mediterranean cuisine, from floral composition to knowledge of essential oils.
