Vibe of the Forest


We are excited to introduce some new vibes

to you this year, straight from the roots of nature. 

The whole reason for living more sustainably is to cherish

this beautiful planet we walk on, and make sure we hand down a liveable world to those who will inherit it from us. 


It's no secret that most of us are living lives, completely disconnected from the Earth. Technological advancement and city life has brought us many beautiful developments, and it has also disrupted our innate oneness with nature. Which is a shame, really, because she has a lot to tell us about how to solve our current challenges!


Luckily for us, the nature lovers from Forest Academy know all about tuning into nature and speaking with its abundant creatures. They will not only share this natural wisdom with you, they might just introduce you into the art of communicating with nature as well! 


It all depends on how open and curious you are to explore

beyond what you have learned from society so far.

Are you ready to dive into the language

of the forest?
