Wildforest Folk is a collective of offerings, guided by Claudia Grati, an experienced ecotherapist who is passionate about transformative experiences in nature that integrate ecological awareness with spiritual and mental well-being.

Wildforest Folk offers workshops and sessions for groups and individuals, focussing on forest and nature therapies combined with experiential deep ecology principles. Forest bathing therapy has been scientifically shown to reduce stress, enhance mood and focus, boost immune function and foster a deeper connection with nature, significantly improving overall well-being. As such, these sessions and workshops aim to nurture emotional healing, tend to eco-grief and climate anxiety, and reconnect individuals to the natural world around them.

Sessions take place in the vast and beautiful environments of the Northern Rivers, South East Queensland and the Mid North Coast – from rainforest to mountain to beachside. Claudia has also facilitated sessions online, particularly during the covid lockdowns. Although it sounds counterintuitive, at this time many folk from around the world who were stuck at home for weeks and even months on end were eager to explore forest and nature therapy via Zoom meets, and it was at this time that Wildforest Folk grew exponentially.

Claudia has experience in hosting Zoom sessions with individuals from the UK, mainland Europe, and the USA, along with in-person sessions and workshops in Australia and New Zealand.

In 2024, Wildforest Folk’s offerings include:

  • Individual ecotherapy sessions
  • Individual and group experiences incorporating forest and nature therapy
  • Facilitated experiential deep ecology sessions
  • Storytelling circles
  • Eco-art workshops for children

Claudia’s work is supported by testimonials from those who have experienced profound changes through her guidance and facilitation.

Thank you Claudia for a great Zoom session. For the first time in a long time I can now, both literally and figuratively, hear the birds singing.

What a wonderful experience with Claudia. Her experience and nurturing nature resulted in an experience that will remain with me for a long time.

Bronwyn S – Auckland

When I contacted Claudia, I was rigid with climate anxiety, due to my job in policy-making. The techniques she taught me has helped me to refocus, and realign with my purpose. Thank you.
