For this week, please have a look at the book titled [Nature & Therapy]. You may find some interesting inspirations there.
It has been my pleasure to spend 4 weeks with you.
Over the past four weeks, you have been thinking, exploring, and applying some of your ideas in the assignments set for you.
Please go back to
assignments and reflect on them.
In your notebook, brainstorm answers to these questions:
What do you think is your role as a Shinrin Yoku Guide?
What do you want your client to feel after the session? Can he/she gain a new experience or learning he/she can utilises in his/her daily life/elsewhere? Try to implement in your session an element of take-back-home that can serve an reminder or to help them to reminisce on the Shinrin Yoku experience. How can you achieve this?
Write down your reflections and send to The Mindful Tourist. In the subject line write [Level 1- Week 5].
Imagine that you are already a TMT Shinrin Yoku guide/practitioner and you are invited to provide a Shinrin Yoku experience to guests of a wellness resort/a community center (choose what fit your contexts).
As a guide/practitioner, you are asked by the resort to design a flyer promoting the experience. The leaflet is going to be distributed among guests and included in the experience/treatment menu.
Perhaps it is time to think of your logo/motto/mission and vision statement, as well =). This will be discussed in details in Week 12.
Design a flyer/leaflet/pamphlet and send it as a pdf by email to The Mindful Tourist. In the subject line write [Level 1- Week 5].
It is time to get you start on your practice ( this does not count as a practice hours).
Choose one activity you have design as part of Assignment Week 3.
Reconsider how practical this activity is. If needed, change what you feel would not work.
Try to write instructions for this activity. It is up to you whether you would like to convey it a verbal or written form.
Ask your partner/husband/friend/work colleague to assist you with your practice.
If pandemic restrictions do not allow you to get out of your house, try to practice at home.
Reflect on your practice.
Compile 1-6 and send it together with Activity I & II.
