Forest Sound Walk
Forest Sound Walk
We walk through the woods. Slowly. Humming and breathing. Listening how the nature responds. Opening our senses. Enjoying the colors and scents forest sends to us. Letting the nature and sounds affect, restore and rejuvenite us.
Welcome to experience the culture of nature and music through your own experience! Forest Sound Walk leads you to relax through slow pace, gentle movements, breathing and humming. It opens your senses through listening and feeling and restores the connection to nature.
Be prepared to get refreshed, re-energized and inspired!I
We will begin our excursion with a 30min introduction. Our slow pace walk takes about 2 hours, and we close the excursion with a brief conversion by the fire or indoors.
The Connecting Sounds
It is not the silence that relaxes us in nature, but the soothing sounds we hear when noise is left behind. The sounds of nature, chirping birds, wind whispering in the leaves, icy rivers singing in the Fall, connect and soothe us and bring us the feeling of belonging.
On the Footsteps of our Fathers
The tradition of singing in nature, with nature and to nature falls back hundreds of years in Finland. Humming, singing and callings have been part of our daily life. Singing has been there to channel sadness and joy, to ease the hard work load and to bring comfort in the solitude. The songs have connected us into ourselves, into our society and into nature. Singing has had an evolutionary role in maintaining the physical safety of the group against predator control, and in creating feelings of safety and psychological comfort between families.
Forest Sound Walk Trail
An ideal trail for Forest Sound Walk is located in a quiet, naturally beautiful environment. The walk starts with a small uphill path and leads the walker to a forest area that contains natural water areas and gently running streams.
During the walk we stop every now and then for simple invitations; The three main principles of Nature Singing - in Finnish Luontolaulu - are called Tuning (Tuning in to the scents, sounds, textures, tastes and sights of the nature through sensing, breathing, feeling and touching), Humming (Caressing the body and the mind through simple hums and melodies) and Calling (Enhancing the inner strength with voice, sounds and natural accoustics of the forest).
If the conditions allow we might also step into a little boat and try singing on the water (for small groups only).
At the end of the walk we might gather by the fire or invite ourselves for a cup tea, freshly brewed from the ingredients we have gathered during our Forest Sound Walk.
