Our clients’ experience
I definitely came richer from this experience and that has manifested in a consistent improvement in the classes that I teach and the medicine that I practice.
The Walking Mentorship Program came to me by accident in a fortuitous ad on social media like so many others. But this one resonated with me. It had all the best components to a life-changing experience: walking, nature, getting together with a group of keen spirit people, and the mentoring aspect that binds everything so neatly.

A methodology that works in a way beyond expectations
Taking part in the walking Mentorship program was a truly enriching experience. It gave me perspective and allowed me to connect the dots by defining my purpose and writing an action plan. A process started with the survival kit, sustained with mentoring, sharing and feedback. It is a powerful self-development tool that I strongly recommend. I feel very grateful for taking the opportunity to experience this innovative concept and a methodology that works in a way beyond expectations. I will keep walking!

Every breath in was filled with love and every breath out was taking the burden off my shoulders. Every step I took I knew Joao is on the path with me ready to answer my questions, listen to my thoughts or just laugh with me or at me :) I had no expectations. I just knew this was a journey designed for me by Joao. I’ll be grateful forever. And I will come back.
