Scientific studies show: As soon as we enter a forest, our heart beats calmer, blood pressure drops, fewer stress hormones circulate in the body. Leaves unfold their healing power alone when we look at them: The green seems to have a calming effect on the body and psyche.
Recent research even proves that the fragrances that thin out trees strengthen our immune system. Thus, after stays in the forest, the number of important defensive cells increases measurably. It is no coincidence that the Asian trend “Shirin-Yoku” has been spreading more and more in Germany for several years: Forest bathing.
– “The secret life of the trees” Peter Wohlleben
The rainforest is a sacred place of living community. In its abundance and biodiversity, it is buzzing with life, a life full of mysticism and magic. Every living being contributes its part to the whole. Trees that stand above everything like powerful guardians and watch over the community: They are teachers and transmitters of peace with themselves and others.

The Amazon rainforest is the last, really large rainforest area on Earth. Billions of different plants, insects and animals live there. Only a fraction of this is scientifically recorded. Not only does he do us good, this immeasurable forest with its mysteries, he can also give us an idea of the splendor and power of natural creation.
