Born and raised in Belgium, but considered by many as a global nomad. I like to see myself as a person who has her roots in the wood wide world. I have lived, studied and/or worked in Czech Republic, Austria and Thailand. Since autumn 2017 I am pursuing a PhD in Environmental Studies in Japan.

Since many years I am very fascinated by the wisdom of trees, forest ecology and the relationship between nature and culture. Already since 2013, I read courses in environmental philosophy and politics and am especially interested in ecopsychology. I integrate some creative ideas and insights in my art, and especially in my blogs and fiction stories. I really do love writing and I am holding this blog mostly for my own self-care and growth.

In 2019, I started my training to become a certified forest therapy guidewith the Association of Nature and Forest Therapy. My knowledge about ecopsychology and ecolinguistics can be integrated in this new practice I am learning.

Forest bathing is about being in nature, but that is not the only thing I do outdoor. I also enjoy hiking, canoeing, kayaking and camping, which are not always the most relaxing activities, but I try to take enough breaks and build space for silence and joy in these activities too. Forest bathing is not the same as jogging, walking, trekking or nordic walking.  I love especially the Nordic countries, because since I am a child I am also very interested in the folklore, mythology and culture of the high north.
