Healing Forest

4.5 ·

Can a forest heal people? Explore the magic of nature. Come home. Be Healed.

HEALING FOREST is a journey to discover the healing powers of nature. Humans have evolved in nature and it has been scientifically proven that our brains behave differently when in nature. Through our project we hope to reconnect people with forests, rivers, mountains and other natural wonders so that they can experience the magical healing powers of nature. 

The aim is simple: Helping people heal. Helping forests heal.

HEALING FOREST (Text for translation)
Come home to the forest

Where time goes slow
and the breath is mellow

Where thoughts find rest
and calm comes to nest

Come home to the woods

To be friends with trees
and listen to the breeze

To wander through trails
and mend your sails

Come home to nature

When your heart is hurting
or your soul needs healing

When something feels wrong
or you just need a place to belong

The forest awaits
Come home. Be healed.

Films For Action is a community-powered, digital library for people who want to change the world.


Our mission is to provide citizens with the knowledge and perspectives essential to creating a more beautiful, just, sustainable, and democratic society.

Films For Action was founded in 2006 by a few friends in Lawrence, Kansas, after realizing how essential a healthy media is to a healthy democracy.

Although we started out hosting community film screenings in the beginning and did so for many years, our digital library eventually became our primary focus. 

Today, with the help of our members (who can add content directly to our site), we've curated over 5,000 of the best documentaries, short films, and videos that can be watched for free online plus several dozen pay-per-view documentaries, sorted into 34 subjects related to changing the world.

And, since there's still so much to learn about that isn't featured in a film, we've also curated 4,000 articles.

To dive in, click the Explore button to sort content by most viewedtop-rated, or newest first, as well as filter content by languagecountry, content type, and 34 topics such as foodsustainabilityeconomicssolutions or big ideas.


“Independent media is dangerous because it allows people to speak for themselves. And when you hear someone speaking from their own experience - whether it's a Palestinian child or an Israeli grandmother or an uncle in Afghanistan or a refugee in the Calais refugee camp - it changes you. It breaks the sound barrier. It challenges the stereotypes and the caricatures that fuel the hate groups. You may not agree with what you hear - I mean, how often do we even agree with our family members? - but you begin to understand where they're coming from. That understanding is the beginning of peace. I really do think that the media can be the greatest force for peace on Earth. Instead, all too often, it is wielded as a weapon of war. We have to take the media back.” - Amy Goodman, Place to B at COP21
