Opinion on: Forest Bathing
"The shared forest experience of last Saturday was very gratifying, due to the harmony between the Mata dos Medos forest and the other participants. Thanks for discovering so much that I did not know before and that is now part of my life portfolio. Thanks Alex"

Opinion on: Forest Bathing Workshop
"Being in the forest in so many different ways, being able to take two almost whole days to explore this incredible world was very, very good! Alex's driving was essential to create a welcoming, participative, relaxed atmosphere. I loved it!"
