If you feel bored, dissatisfied, or empty, you might question the meaning of life. If you believe that your relationships with others are unfulfilled, your professional life is stuck, or you find yourself often anxious, it might be time to stop, reconnect, gain perspective, and take action! This is a journey of self-discovery where you can explore your needs, desires, your fears, and obstacles that keep you from reaching your potential. It helps you explore your true identity. Through this program, you will be able to understand your purpose, set goals in your life, and achieve them with the support of your action plan.

What people are saying about the Walking Mentorship

Digital Project Manager | Operations Manager

Ana Julia Muñoz Duffy

Joao’s energy and love for walking in Nature are contagious. He’s way of taking each of us in the path, especially our inner path is inspirational. He has this magic skill of being able to challenge you but in a very warm and kind way. It’s a beautiful experience that takes us with ease to “disconnect to connect”.


João Maia Dias

After finishing the Walking Mentorship program I can say that something clicked. Something bigger than words can ever describe. João's strategical thinking process combined with 120km ahead of my feet helped me step by step build an empire of answers for all those questions. Walking Mentorship had been given me time to think smart, not hard.

Sometimes you need a little magic to find the things you're looking for, right in front of you. Then take the time, the place, a small group of great people and a guide to guide you in a personal, unique way — step by step to the best version of yourself. Joao and his Walking Mentorship program gave me the time, the place, the unique group of great people and a little magic to take the next step. I highly recommended it.
