Forest Mind Instructor training - first time in Finland in English


In the training, we familiarize ourselves with research information about the well-being effects of nature on mental skills, the backgrounds of the Forest Mind method and how to guide exercises.


After completing the course, you will receive a certificate and the qualification to guide all Forest Mind exercises (seed, seedling and tree levels). The course also provides tips for taking care of your own resources. Those who have completed the training also have the right to teach Forest Mind Basics courses if they wish.


The admission requirement for the course is education/strong experience in the field of nature or a background in psychological well-being. The course involves preliminary tasks before the course and a commitment to voluntary training. The participants are required to read the Forest Mind book in advance, so in the course we can focus on backgrounding the exercises and practicing guiding. Participants in the trainings will receive the Forest Mind book electronically, as the English version is not published, but we have an unofficial version in English. This is for your own use only.


For getting to know the Forest Mind method it is recommended to start with the Forest Mind Basics course. This is available as a web course in both English and Finnish, both of which I have created and are available on the web. Taking this Basic course does not entitle you to lead groups, but it is suitable for getting to know the subject and maintaining your own well-being.
