Forest Sound Walk™ Road to Self goes through Nature

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.

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.

It is not the silence that relaxes us in nature, but the soothing sounds we hear when noise is left behind. Were there a complete silence in nature, we wouldn't be able to relax, in fact, according to science some of us might even experience discomfort and fear. 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.

Forest Sound Walks lead you into the culture of nature and music through your own experience. We explore nature connection in traditional folklore, breathing, syllables and sounds. Be prepared to get refreshed, restored and inspired!

Forest Sound Walks open your senses through listening and feeling and restores the connection to nature.

On the Footsteps of our Fathers

The tradition of singing in the nature, with the nature and to the nature falls back hundreds of years in Scandinavia. 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.

Nature singing - in Finnish Luontolaulu leads you to relax through hums, tonings and simple melodies. It opens your senses through listening and feeling and restores the connection to nature. You will be able to capture those experiences and take them with you to your every day life. Luontolaulu brings nature to your every day.

The sounds of nature bring us the feeling of belonging.
