Why Mind Over Mountains?

what is mind over mountains?

Mind Over Mountains is a social enterprise aiming to improve physical and mental wellbeing in through the power of outdoor recreation and nature.

We deliver unique residential events in UK mountain environments with a holistic approach of hill-walking, inspirational talks, NLP coaching (Neuro-linguistic Programming), self-help and mindfulness to re-balance mental health; generate new focus, restore resilience and find agency over our lives. 

Mind Over Mountains began in 2018 as an impact event, curated and founded by Adventure Uncovered in partnership with Alex Staniforth. Adventure Uncovered influences social and environmental change through responsible adventure, publishing news and articles online and organising events. Following it’s success, Mind Over Mountains was formed as a social enterprise (C.I.C) to reach out to more people who need it.

To come on a weekend like this was completely out of my comfort zone, but having spent four days with such an amazing (and random) group of people, I can say that I felt totally rejuvenated and inspired!
