UPDATE – change of date

Unfortunately, it’s still not safe enough to meet under current conditions, so we’ve been forced to postpone the walk to April. The rest of the plan remains unchanged. Registered participants will be notified by e-mail about the future date. 


 

Following up on our January mental health webinar, we would like to follow up with a practical experience of taking a walk in the forest, making use of Lesní myslForest Mind, a special programme we discovered right here in Brno, inspired from Finland.

Spending time in nature has been found to promote health. Forest Mind is an innovation system of mental skills exercises designed to utilize and intensify the natural healing effects of forests. This method uses the latest, most widely accepted trends in psychology, therapy, and coaching, including mindfulness and life coaching, in a natural setting or with natural imagery.

It has been scientifically proven that 10 minutes spent in the forest lead to a drop in blood pressure, 20 minutes – improvement in mood, 60 minutes – sharpening of attention, 2 hours – recovery of the immune system, 5 hours a month – an increase in positive emotions.

We will be guided by a trained Forest Mind instructor, Martina Holcová. The walk will include ca. 5 exercises, 5 minutes each, done in small groups. This part with the programme will be ca. 3 km long. Make sure to wear appropriate clothes and shoes suitable for possibly cold and muddy terrain, pack a snack and a thermos with hot tea.

We will meet at 10:00 the terminus of tram no. 5 and 9, Štefánikova čtvrť, and from there we’ll take bus no. 57 to Lesní školka stop (beyond Soběšice)  where we’ll begin at 10:30 am. (You can also park your car here.) We’ll make a 3 km long circle in the forests around there and return to the same point – Lesní školka bus stop around 12:30. After this taster part of the walk, those who wish can continue walking for another 8 km to Vranov and return to town from there, easily with bus no. 57.

Please note that the walk will take place only if the government regulations permit to do so. Otherwise this event will be postponed to a later date and registered participants will be notified.
