Forest Mind Guide training 
1st of Sept 2023 in Espoo

Are you interested in adding the well-being effects of the nature to be part of your working methods in your occupation? Would you be able to benefit of this great well being method developed here in Finland ?

There is a lot of information about the well-being effects of the nature, backed up by the science around the globe and also here in Finland. Did you know that only 10 minutes in the nature lowers your pulse and reduces your stress level? Forest Mind combines the well-being effects of the nature with the mind skills, and it is easy to adopt and use.

The Forest Mind Guide -course is targeted to people working in the fields of coaching, health, education, outdoor activities etc. and to all who want to utilize the method in their work. The entry requirement for training is strong experience in a field of nature or nature services, or applicable hobby background or education. There are exercises before the class as well as after.

If Forest Mind or guiding in general is totally unfamiliar to you, you may want to get acquainted with the method with this virtual Forest Mind Basics class, which I have created, see here:

During the day we concentrate on the theory of Forest Mind, background of the exercises, practising guiding and discovering own strengths and plan way forward. You get a certificate of the training and this entitles you to guide first two levels of the Forest Mind exercises (3 levels altogether). There is currently over 150 exercises within this method. The Guide course entitles you to use the first two levels of the exercises, which are plenty. You also get the Forest Mind 1 -book, translated loosely, ONLY for your own use.

After the Guide course you can continue with the Instructor course if you wish so.

"I have been waiting for just over a year now to be able to train for the English Forest Mind course.The wait was truly worth it, Erja managed to get an English Forest Mind group going and what fun it was. Erja Really Is an amazing teacher and very patient. Not only did I learn a lot during the course but I felt refreshed at the end of it also.
I can't wait to work with Erja again in the future to further my training. 10/10 for everything.
Thank you again for an amazing time."
