Have you ever entered a forest or woodland in the light of day, and all you wanted was to stay there alone in the silence and to leave only after a very long time? Then you should know that this is not coincidental; your body is right. A stay in the forest has been proven to have a calming and even healing effect on the body, and of course on the soul, and this even has a name: “forest bathing”.
About a year ago one of the volunteers at Ramat Hanadiv became ill; she related that every day she came to stroll in the forest until she recovered. Spending time in nature and in the forest improved her health incredibly. Following this story, we studied the topic and decided to establish a small forest nook at Ramat Hanadiv, designed for a quiet, calm rest. We added some comfortable rocks to sit on, and we called the place “A Silent Space”.
