A Forest Mind can be guided in a forest, park, garden or even indoors with the help of natural imagery.

    • Children´s nature experience training: inspired by the Scandinavian approach that emphasizes the emotional experience with nature in place of  simply acquiring knowledge, we provide Metsämörri/Skogsbaden experiences for teachers and students.
    • If you are interested in combining a walk with a lecture of forests importance for wellbeing, that is possible. Indoors or outdoors, your choice!

Feedback from people we work with

Heel hartelijk bedankt voor je fijne en authentieke bijdrage van zaterdag. We kregen er ook veel enthousiaste en waarderende reacties op vanuit het publiek, speciaal over jouw stukje. Het raakte me dat je zo mooi onder woorden brengt en bevestigt van veel dingen die ik intuïtief aanvoel en ervaar. Het is mooi om dat op deze manier gedeeld te zien, en het ook te herkennen”.

Katriina provided a thorough (online) presentation on Forest Therapy for our company to better understand the subject. The presentation seamlessly blended science and psychology principles to support the movement behind forest bathing. Katriina was lovely to work with; accommodating and had very insightful well thought out presentation prepared for us. Hope to learn more from her in the future.
