And individual walk cost 8 euros per person (3-100 yrs of age) per walk payable on the day self.  Tailormade Forest Mind events are negotiable per event.

The next dates for Forest Mind walks (all requiring a sign up beforehand):

 I organize walks open to all, as long as you sign up beforehand. This will give you a feeling of what Forest Mind is about.


On top of this, Forest Mind walks can be used as a refreshing part of an event, training or course, tailor made  for a specific group with specific themes. For tailor made Forest Mind activities, 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.  



  • Good sturdy and water resistant shoes. Or better yet, rubber boots!
  • Winter/spring/fall: If you wear rubber boots, make sure to wear woollen 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 - especially in the summer months.
  • A snack (optional): always useful to keep the blood sugar levels in balance to avoid bad mood bursts ;)

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.

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