ABOUT HEIDI KORHONEN

Forest Therapy Coach
Letting you know about my favorite nature place, may bring into light some of the reasons, why I am on this path. My dearest nature place is in the lake at our cottage. Yes, in the lake. The best time is, when the day starts to turn into night and everything slows down or when the sun is shining the hottest.
When I am floating there, in that small round lake, it is like being in our Mother nature’s arms. There in her arms, I am very close being me; floating in the middle of the lake, ears under water listening to the silence, but hearing so much.
If it’s evening, I love to stare at the blue ceiling of our world. It bends like a dome above me. And the stars! They look amazing. If it’s a sunny day, I can’t even fully open my eyes, so I just sneak a peek and my eyes fill with sunshine. Green trees are guarding my floating and they overarch towards me in every side of the lake. How many green shades there can be!
When floating in that lake, I don’t have to think about the social roles, no one expects anything from me or pushes my sore parts to make a reaction. There is no need to be going anywhere or becoming anything. You can just be. Be, just as you are. Accepted. Fully accepted.
My goals as forest therapy coach
I am a certified forest therapy coach and I want to empower you, to achieve your healthiest and most balanced life and also introduce you to feelings of satisfaction and gratitude.
My personal goal has been to help 10.000 persons by engaging them with nature. It’s a huge one, I know! But you gotta have goals, right? I have started my journey five years ago and it continues with great enthusiasm.
To ensure the continuity of forest therapy in my own way, I donate 4% of my income to The Finnish Natural Heritage Foundation. They collect donations and use them to purchase and to protect natural areas. Their foundation provides the only direct route to establish sanctuaries for nature on national level here in Finland. I love the work they do!
