Events in the forest

Team development

«What does connect us? What does caracterise us as a team? What does it take for us to be successful in the long term? Karin took us on a walk through the forest with these questions in mind.

We were inspired and surprised by how many points of contact the forest offers to our questions and what new access it gave us to these topics. Many thanks for the valuable guidance and this very special forest experience.»

Practical lecture «Forest perspective»

«Karin took us on an “indoor forest walk” and introduced us to the topic of sustainability from the most original perspective, the forest perspective - very instructive and likeable, with passion, infectious enthusiasm and combined with mindfulness exercises that took us out of the seminar room and brought us very close to the trees. Thank you so much for this experience, Karin!»

Retreat - Vision-Review in the forest

Getting to know each other better in the team

Communication & trigger points in small group

«The combination of your forest expertise, and your skills in mediation, communication and personality development, for example, is incredible. Your own capacity for reflection is apparent, and this brings the authenticity required. You should keep going on this path.»

Merita Göldi, participant, winter 2022

Saying no & differentiate oneself in small group

«Our forest coaching on the topic of “saying no” was inspiring and instructive. The tour through the forest and the attentive observation of the trees promoted a special calmness within us.»

Franziska Nyfeler, participant, autumn 2022


Forest as a metaphor for a team lunch event

«Walking in the forest with Karin is an experience that has many advantages. Two examples of this would be:

  • Learning from nature: it is hard to believe at first glance, but many of nature's strategies can also be applied to us as humans.
  • Promoting team development and creating team experiences: on the one hand through the team reflecting on itself, and on the other hand because spending time together outdoors in nature is good for the heart and soul.»

Saskia Günther, in her position as Head of Sustainability and Environment at SBB Infrastructure, summer 2020

Own development in an evening hiking

«Karin led two hiking specials for us entitled “Journey to the Inside”. The mix of self-reflection, walking in silence and information on forestry and natural history was well received by the participants. Karin was very pleasant to work with. Her preparation and follow-up, as well as the technical competence, left nothing to be desired.»

Sabine, Head of Training ASVZ Hiking, spring 2019 and 2020
