The perfect introduction to Walking Mentorship in the beautiful Oeste

Program overview

Many of us crave a break from the 24/7 connection of our cell phones and computers. Maybe it’s the feeling of being always available. Perhaps it’s all the digital noise that keeps you from hearing your thoughts. Maybe it’s the fear of missing out, which is inevitable if we continually watch what other people are doing on social media.

We can only see and hear certain things when there are no distractions around. The program in Oeste can make that happen at the moment when you need it.

  • Walk around the beautiful hills and valleys of Portugal’s Oeste region.
  • Slow down, reconnect with yourself, others, and nature through our mentorship programs.
  • Create an Action plan to help you keep the momentum and the insights you collect throughout the program.

I have lived the most rewarding experience of my life.

One day I heard an interview in which João explained why he created the Walking Mentorship, and I immediately thought that it was what I wanted. It was much more than walking. It is also thinking, reliving, going back to the past, imagining the future and another date of sensations that I can not explain. I have lived the most rewarding experience of my life, which I know will help me to grow in the coming times; It is a seed that is planted in us and grows over time.

The Walking Mentorship triggered a wonderful inner transformation and helped me to pause.

I am a mother of 3, I am a kindergarten teacher and I love being with my family and friends, travelling and relaxing. During the pandemic, I discovered that walking allows us to re-energise and reconnect. The Walking Mentorship triggered a wonderful inner transformation, helped me to pause, reflect, rethink, prioritize and allow me to understand that finding our purpose puts our heart, soul and body at rest. At our own pace, we learn that there is no right or wrong and that the more we give the more we get.

Assertiveness to establish an action plan that guided the next chapters of my life.

I joined the Walking Mentorship Program at a time in my life when I was adrift and collect 2 great insights: On the one hand, getting to know practically all the green spaces of my dear Lisbon, calming the mind in this immense tranquillity; On the other hand, finding the necessary serenity to not only recover the foundations, the internal structure, and the direction of my path; and everything with energy, focus, and assertiveness to establish an action plan that guided the next chapters of my life.

Walking Mentorship's programs remind us of our forgotten wisdom.

Walking Mentorship's programs remind us of our forgotten wisdom, the deep insight we all keep inside, which is just waiting to be felt. Through his life experience and humanity, João knows how to touch a soul spot to heal and remember what is needed.
In a few words, the real challenge consists of letting us flow. And a good mentor is the float to rely on as we learn to trust ourselves enough. You can trust João in your journey. We all need to remember ourselves even a little bit. Keep walking, keep flowing!

You finish the week with a better and clearer view of your life.

João´s program is very well built-up, he is detail-oriented and cares about us in every sense. You finish the week of walking with a better and clearer view of life and he brings out your strengths from deep inside of you. I fully recommend to everyone to join him on one of his journeys, I will definitely be back soon!

Duration

Typically 4-day experience from Thursday to Sunday. We usually gather the group on the first evening for a night walk to start our slowdown process and resume the walking part of the program the following day. It is also important to finalise on a Sunday just after lunch to keep the afternoon to travel back home and have the space to make a smooth transition to a normal life.
