Live in harmony with your world
Take part in your global community
we host several events a year
Our events predominantly take place in the Czech Republic and in Ecuador, and are directed towards providing a space for personal healing, volunteering in service to our communities and nature, and reconnecting with our planet. We also occasionally host fund-raising events, and our booth can be found at friendly events hosted by other organizations from time to time.

Shuar Medicinal Tobacco ritual
Join us and learn about one of the most revered medicinal plants of the Amazon, mapacho tobacco. When used with respect and in the proper manner, it can be incredibly healing. We will share with you some of the beliefs of the Shuar of Ecuador with respect to their use of tobacco, and prepare some of the medicine for you to pray with and experience directly.
Viva la Amazonia! – Forest.ink 2
Our theme this time around is “Life Energy”
We cordially invite everyone interested in integrating the principles of yoga into their life to join us. Yoga, Ayurveda, meditation, chanting and dance are all means to our awakening, strengthening our intuition, attention and life force. The event is for everyone who has decided to live life differently than what might be considered “normal” in today’s society, and those curious to share in our perspective.
Conscious work with our life energy helps us prevent stress and harmonize our inner and outer worlds. Thanks to tools such as our own voice, mudras, breath, asanas and more, we learn to direct this energy to heal ourselves and others. We will be focusing on many means of redirecting our life energy during this 2nd edition of Forest.ink
Throughout the weekend we offer you yoga, an introduction to Ayurveda, therapeutic breathwork, and vocal workshops. We will have guided discussions regarding the Amazon rainforest, and of course we will return to what started this all: art as ritual. We will be auctioning off paintings, as well as the opportunity to receive ritual tattoos with world-famous top-caliber artists.

Volunteer in Ecuador
Four times a year we bring a small group of volunteers out to experience the Amazon rainforest, and to be part of the communities that live there. We volunteer for Bosque Medicinal, our sister NGO based in Ecuador, to help fulfill their mission of direct conservation, scientific investigation, and community education. Join us and revitalize yourself while caring for one of the most precious ecosystems on the planet.
Vegefest – festival soběstatečnost
Our friends and partners at Sklenářka are hosting the 9th Vegefest in Prague. This is a 3-day event full of inspiring workshops, conferences, concerts, and other community building activities, all designed to inspire a healthy lifestyle. The proceeds of the event will be donated to our sister organization, Bosque Medicinal. We hope to see you there, and share in the beautiful Vege-festival!
DuchovÉ a bytosti pralesa
Nikolka, our friend and official Forest.ink lawyer, spent 6 months in Ecuador, and made several treks into the rainforest. Inspired by all that she heard, felt, and perceived, she created beautiful paintings to be auctioned off for the benefit of Forest.ink and Bosque Medicinal. Her story is one of courage and beauty, as she inspires us to live beyond the limitations of our sight, being blind herself.
Our friends at Amazonia Cafe hosted the Brazilian photographer, musician, and director Lui Cobra for his 1st European exhibition in a multi-disciplinary artistic evening. The exhibition entitled “Mirror of Eyes” will connect space with movement and sensory perceptions. A generous 50% of proceeds from the paintings sold were donated to support our efforts!
“Miracles are born beyond the perception.
The Eye Mirror is a search for experimental reality.”
– Lui Cobra.
prales je Život II
An evening of sharing and stories to bring the Ecuadorian rainforest to life for those that have not been able to visit yet, and for those that would like to remember their experiences out there. We are lucky to have the founder of our sister organization, Bosque Medicinal, visiting to directly explain the situation and beauty of the Ecuadorian rainforests, and the cultures and life they support. We will be discussing the rainforests, Andean, Shuar, and Mayan spirituality, and the paths of natural healing.
Forest.ink @ the Chemistry Gallery
The event that started it all! Driven by a need to help our planet, to begin to care for it more deeply, our founder, Petra, organized her friends and fellow artists to use the talents and gifts they had to provide funding for our sister project, Bosque Medicinal.
A runaway success, Forest.ink was featured in local media and television. Riding the waves of this success, we organized ourselves as an NGO focused on healing the self and caring for the rainforests of our planet.
Forest.ink took place September 17th, 2016 at The Chemistry Gallery in Prague. The day was filled with various activities and discussions to learn about the rainforest, along with the opportunity to bid on art created for the event, including tattoos from world-renowned tattoo artists.
