Forest-Minded Wellness Course: Exploring Well-being Skills in a Natural Setting

The Forest-Minded Wellness Course gathers for 1.5 - 2 hours every other week, for a total of three meetings in a designated natural environment. Through Forest-Mind exercises and the natural surroundings, we delve into the significance of senses, thoughts, beliefs, emotions, and mental skills in well-being. Participants select meaningful aspects of well-being to contemplate through Forest-Mind exercises. With the support of the participant guide, attendees create their own resource map and well-being plan.

During each session, I gently guide participants into the theme of well-being through discussions and walks. We occasionally pause to engage in Forest-Mind exercises related to the theme and share insights as participants find fitting. Exercises and reflections are conducted individually, in pairs, and in small groups. Participants are encouraged to independently practice the exercises from the Forest-Mind guide during the week between sessions.
