Welcome to Forest Minds

Forest Minds is about connecting people, their awareness and consciousness with the forest.


Regaining our innate connection between the mind and forest brings us back to ourselves.

Over Years of evolution this knowledge is deeply understood by our consciousness

however it has been hijacked and overshadowed by societal changes and technology.

 

The aim of Forest Minds is to provide you with the experience, the tools and knowledge

so you can reconnect with this amazing source of life and energy.

Mayumi Kataoka is a Sydney based Certified Forest Therapy Guide with Japan Forest Therapy Society and INFTA (International Nature and Forest Therapy Alliance) and nature photographer.

Over the past 10 years the path of Mayumi's  "trees & nature" photography has led her to a new career as a "Forest Therapy Guide" where she offers therapeutic & mindfulness nature walks known as Forest Bathing or Shinrin-yoku to a range of  people and community.

 

 "I really believe that nature already knew the reason as to why I have been so involved with tree photography.

During this period, nature has been talking to me through a multitude of experiences, sights, sounds, touch and the scent of the forest.  She has taught me so much and I believe she chose me for this new career,  for which I am so grateful.

 I am excited to be able to share the wonderful journey of Shinrin-yoku with you ! "
