WALKING MENTORSHIP IN 5 STEPS

1) The Walking Mentorship Methodology provides a framework to revise who you are now, where you want to go next and how you will get there. Have fun while doing serious work.
2) It might look like walking, but in the end it´s thinking and crystallising the best ideas you’ve ever had. An exercise of visioning and goal setting. Simplifying complexity.    
3) Progress with step by step exercises and the presence of an experienced mentor, someone to help you focus and take control of the process.  A friendly facilitator.
4) Walk remarkable routes like The Camino of Santiago in Spain, the Via Francigena in the Alps, the Pacific Crest Trail in the United States or hidden gems like the DarkSky reserve in Alqueva great lake, Portugal.  Life changing travel    
5) Experience a mixture of fun, physical challenge, companionship, unusual lodging, fantastic meals, endless walks and beautiful landscapes. Live happier and healthier.

    It’s difficult to find a program more physically and intellectually intense.
    It looks like walking, but in the end it’s thinking and crystallising the best ideas which you have in your head.
    The venues are fantastic, you will find new friends and fantastic Mentor Joao, with whom spend a week is a real treasure.

    The mentorship program is a unique and valuable life-changing experience. João is very detailed oriented and truly caring mentor – he starts the program from regular 1:1 meetings with each member of the group, making sure that person’s expectations align with the program goals, checking all the gear to ensure the ‘student’ will be comfortable during the week of walking.

    Walking Mentorship is the most amazing way of personal and professional development that I experienced. Every detail, every path, every moment is to be assimilated and enjoyed. All will have meaning and impact in the final result. Get ready, prepare yourself and go.

    All the program is structured to promote and facilitate the special and superb “team spirit” that the nine people, from different nationalities, lived, and which will remain special.
    It was a very impacting and unique life experience, which I highly recommend.

    Walking Mentorship was a life changing experience. The program is the perfect mix of effort, fun, pain, companionship, spartan lodging, fantastic meals, endless walks, beautiful landscapes, all superbly orchestrated by João. He seems to know exactly when to walk by your side, when to talk, when to just let you be.  I strongly recommend the Walking Mentorship program to people who are in the process of taking important life decisions.

    Walking Mentorship is not just about mentoring: there’s the amazing nature of Galicia, combined with the rich spiritual history of the Camino and the lovely restaurants of the area; the various pains of the body focusing on its goal; the sleeping in Peregrino dormitories; long chats with strangers – who quickly became friends – along the road or in the evening with a glass of wine, sharing laughs and tears.

  • Bernhard Fanger – Performance in balance

    It was an outstanding experience! The walk is a dream by itself – mostly unpaved roads and trails, little villages full of history and nature in abundance. Being en route with fellow participants from all over Europe was a huge plus for me! The experience is a structured approach to improve your life and your focus on work. All in understandable and reasonable steps, written down and executable.

    I can sincerely say that I have truly enjoyed the WALKING MENTORSHIP, where for seven days I have experienced the company of wonderful people, beautiful landscapes, amazing food and moreover, the counsel and care of Joao. His passion to transmit us the need to always move forward and develop our personal and professional lives has been very enjoyable and rich to me.

    I swear I’ve got muscles that weren’t there just a couple of weeks ago, but I’ve got a smile on my face that lights me and has somehow an impact all around. My joy comes from the within, where I managed to put in good order every moment, every challenge (and there were pretty big ones), every jokes and laughs; but also the good memories from the places and the people we crossed.
