forest mind

  • Good sturdy and water resistant shoes. Or better yet, rubber boots!
  • Winter/spring/fall: If you wear rubber boots, make sure to wear woolen socks underneath. When we stop for the exercises, your toes can easily  get cold.
  • Layered clothing. Better too much  than too little. During stops you will cool off and the forest is shady and cool.
  • Something to drink: in the summer months. Otherwise, I carry the drink with me.

Generally the walks take about 2-3 hours and the distance we cover is anywhere from 2 to 7 km.  To enjoy the silence and to make sure we do not run into crowds that can disrupt us, the walks take place early in the morning or later in the afternoon/evening, depending on the season and the daylight hours. It is also possible to go for a walk during office hours. Children are welcome to join, but with the understanding, that these are calm walks with little noise.

What do you need with you?

As the name implies, Forest Mind method is best practiced in the forest.

I am starting from areas that are familiar to me (Merelbeke, Munte) but I am looking to  branch out to other areas as well (Heidebos, Vlaamse Ardennen..).

 I organize walks on request only. I have walked with people who want to escape the rat race for a while; for stress busting; for alternative activity on a Sunday morning; a birthday present; a farewell present...On top of this, Forest Mind walks can be used as a refreshing team building event,  refresher at a training or a course, tailor made  for a specific groups with specific themes. Get in touch with me and we can plan a walk together! Also, if you would be interested in going for a Forest Mind walk in another location, let me know! I am always curious to learn to know new places.
