Whatever your ideas and thoughts, let's discuss about what we can create together!

Lecture: Experience more with nature

A lecture on the wonderful power of nature and how a visit in the forest can have positive effects on health and wellbeing. The lecture provides basic knowledge on research results which Shinrin Yoku and Natural & Forest Therapy are based on. Together we go through what happens during a forest bath and you get tips and advice on how to open your senses to nature around you and feel deep relaxation, wellbeing and increase the sense of belonging with nature.

A full day forest bath

A deeper immersion in the forest

A whole day in the forest! You have maybe already tested a forest bath and would like to go one more step or you are curious about a new way to experience nature. Here we are going to stay several hours in the forest therefore we will have time to go further away from the meeting place and to interact with nature in different ways. Of course it will be forest bathing but also sit spot, communication in circle, creative activities and more..

A full day forest bath gives the opportunity to experience more our connection with nature, with the other people in the group and with ourselves.

There will be also time for exchange of experience, food and of course laugh!

International Forest Bathing Day

Connect to the all world

I love Änggårdsbergen. I am there almost everyday and I feel a real connection to this forest. It is my friend, my place, my secret home. 

Of course I will be there to celebrate the international forest bathing day 2020, 12/9, kl. 17:00!

Follow with me for a unique forest bath during which we will experience nature powers with all the others participants around the world!

 
 

Forest bath under full moon

Connect to nature with the full moon energy

At full moon, the moon goes up at the same time than the sun goes down. The sun lightens the side of the moon directed toward Earth.

 

The moon has always fascinated people in all time and culture. It can be seen as a symbol of the life cycle: it grows to full moon to slowly diminish until it disappears totally and is born again.

 

Full moon is like a peak of force and energy

Find a spot in nature, sit there and be. Some minutes, several hours, you choose. Sit spot is a practice that can open a door to yourself  by experiencing what is around you: the smallest like the biggest, the visible and the invisible. By coming to your sit spot day after day, week after week, you will learn to know one place through your senses without trying to interpret eller judge what you are experiencing. Just to be. But is it really "just"?

After this course you will have tools to carry on sit spot by yourself. Maybe you will get answers to something you were looking for or you will discover a new way that you never noticed before. 

I am offering a sit spot sourse for beginners. We will meet 4 times during a period of 3 weeks:

 - Once at the beginning, I will guide you in the meaning of sit spot with more details, answer your questions... we will also speak about sharing in circle and set our intention. 

- The we will meet at the end of each week, i.e 3 times. On each occasions you will get advices and tips to help you to progress in your experience week after week. Each person will alos have the possibility to express his/her experience from the passed week. Here we will use communication in circle. It will also be time for casual exchanges and see how our stories connect with each others little by little.

- In between each meeting it is up to you: how often, how long you want to be at your sit spot. How much you want to express the things you are experiencing by writing, drawing, painting, gathering natural objects...

Medicine Walk

You & Nature

You and Nature, together during several hours. A ”medicine walk” is an immersion in nature where you will take in everything that is around you: look, listen, feel, smell and maybe even taste. Without searching for anything, without trying to understand or interpret the things that you experience. Let nature and all the living world that is around you come to you through your senses. You can walk, run, sit, lay down, sleep, play, sing, you can do whatever you want to, you can be whatever you what to.

Before starting you will pass a threshold that gives access to your connection with nature, with Earth. there you can find answers you were looking for, new possibilities, new directions. On your way back you will pass the threshold again back into the human world.

A medicine walk is a solo journey but will start and finish as a group. We begin with practical instruktions and questions. Then we will open ours senses, ground us and one after the other you will pass the threshold and start your journey in nature. You will be back after maximum 3 hours and I will keep the threshold during the all time. When everybody is back we will take time to "land" in the human world. Each person will have the possibility to tell his/her story. Maybe the stories will meet and cross and we will "see" a network growing between humans, nature, the Earth...
