Welcome to Forest Minds

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


This is achieved by using different modalities such as

Forest Therapy Walk (Shinrin-yoku), meditation, Nature art/craft,

Tai Chi/Qi Gong and photography.

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.


My aim is to provide you with the experience, the tools and knowledge

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