Mindful Walks

Nature as a medicine

There is no Wi-Fi in the forest, but I promise you a good connection


Soon you will be welcome at Klackberg for a Mindful Walk in Nature, a practice known as ‘forest bathing’. We will be slowing down and embracing nature’s beauty. It will instantly calm the mind, reduce your stress level and improve your mood. In a world that’s constantly on the move, this mindful walk helps you to be in the moment. 


What is Forest Bathing?

Forest bathing, or shinrin-yoku as it’s called in Japanese, is a practice that celebrates the healing power of nature. It’s not about getting from one point to another; it’s about being present in every step, every breath. This mindful stroll allows us to connect with the natural world in a way that rejuvenates the spirit and calms the mind.

Imagine the symphony of leaves rustling, the sunlight filtering through the branches, and the earth beneath your feet. These elements create a serene space where worries dissolve and the present moment takes the stage. This walk is a chance to tune into the simple beauty that surrounds us, whether it’s the vibrant colors of the leaves or the delicate songs of the birds.


Benefits Nature Walks

Studies have shown that spending time in nature reduces stress, lowers blood pressure, and boosts our mood. Forest bathing encourages a mindful connection to our surroundings, promoting relaxation and enhancing our overall well-being. It’s a holistic therapy that nature offers us freely.


Join me soon

Let’s step away from the hustle of daily life and embrace the calmness that the forest provides. Whether you’re an experienced forest bather or new to this practice, you’re warmly invited to share in this serene experience. Nature’s wisdom is waiting to be discovered. Hope to see soon on the next walk.

Due to the pig plague, I cannot yet plan a new date because we are not allowed to gather in the forest.
