Mindfulness in Nature: Weekend



5th – 7th July 24

27th – 29th september 24

These weekends will be taught in Norwegian


From 4550,- per person


Beginner to experienced

This weekend will suit both those new to mindfulness and experienced practitioners.

Group size

Minimum 4, maximum 8.

A note about fitness

We will be outside as much as possible, walking up to about 7km, sitting and lying on the ground. We can adapt the distance walked to the group.

Calm, clarity and relaxation

These are just some of the benefits of mindfulness, along with better concentration, greater enjoyment of life and improved relationship satisfaction. Join us for a weekend and discover mindfulness for yourself.
´Mindful´ is a term we seem to hear everywhere now. On these weekends we hope to demystify mindfulness. We will explore different mindfulness practices, how they can support you and how you can incorporate them into your daily life.

Why mindfulness in nature?

Spending time in nature has been shown to have positive effects on our physical and mental health. Practising mindfulness outdoors can enrich our experience. The (weekend) programme introduces mindfulness practices indoors and outside, with the themes of slowing down and reconnecting with ourselves in nature.

Your mindfulness teacher:

Kari Bø

Mindfulness teacher
Kari grew up in Ringebu and is a trained MBSR therapist. She trained as a teacher, with further training as a special education teacher. In recent years, she has worked with groups both at home and abroad.

Kari is concerned with putting the individual at the centre, and places great emphasis on creating safe groups which are a prerequisite for exploring life inwards and outwards. She thinks the abundant nature of Venabygdsfjellet gives us many opportunities to choose a conscious presence.









An important point

While mindfulness can support good mental health this weekend is not therapy. It may not be suitable for those who have recently/are receiving treatment for mental health issues or who have recently experienced major life events such as bereavement or loss.
