A Magickal & Supportive Community for Introverted & Highly Sensitive Solopreneurs

A small-group circle that hosts a comfy, cozy space to connect with kindred spirits who support and inspire you in creating a life and business that works with your nature as an introverted, sensitive person.

"I firmly believe that everything you need to create a successful business and fulfilling life is already inside of you. I'm here to help you connect with this inner guidance."


In Forestmind we focus on a high quality of life, as well as innovative and intuitive ways to run your business, allowing you to be more present and balanced in both work and in life. By taking good care of yourself you can have more joy in your life and more ease in your business.

Private Membership Site

Forestmind is settled in a quiet and secluded online sanctuary, free from the distraction of social media, so that you can focus on what matters.

Yearly Membership Design

Forestmind is designed as a yearly membership, specifically with HSP’s and introverts in mind, to foster a close-knit and supportive community.

Limited Memberships Available

Forestmind has an intentionally small number of members for a cozy, enriching experience built around your specific needs. Current membership is capped at 6 souls.

Practical, Nature-Based, Magickal Support for your Business

Forestmind is a place where we blend the Practical, the Natural, and the Magickal

The Practical

Forestmind is an online membership circle designed for introverts and highly sensitive persons with a solo business focused on helping and healing. You’ll receive support in creating a business that works with your personality traits and desired lifestyle.

We’ll spend time on the practical aspects of running a successful business related to marketing, copywriting, niching, social media strategy, networking, finances, and more – but we’ll explore these topics in a way that resonates for you without all the overwhelm.

The Natural

Forestmind is an online sanctuary that is thoughtfully curated for the introvert and highly sensitive person. You will have space to develop your intuition and listen to the sage wisdom that nature has to offer. There are natural rhythms to everything, including your business and your life.

Too often we get caught in the trap of constantly achieving so that we can finally arrive. This leads us to burnout, overwhelm, and disappointment. By embracing a nature-based view of the world, you can be less stressed and more aligned in both your business and your life.

The Magickal

Forestmind is a magickal place designed to break you out of the mold that society has placed upon you, releasing you to discover your true self and your natural essence. As introverts and highly sensitive persons, this can be exceptionally rewarding.

By incorporating magickal and metaphysical aspects into your business – meditation, intention setting, moon phases, human design, feng shui, astrology, the enneagram, tarot – you can create an authentic life that is in alignment with your soul’s purpose and your highest good.

When Can I Join?

Applications for Forestmind membership open on the Summer Solstice and the Winter Solstice, provided there are spots available.

Please email me if you’d like to be placed on the waiting list for priority application, if you have any questions about membership, or if you’d like to schedule a chat: mountainpracticejourneys@gmail.com

Cost of Living Crisis price adjustments for Forestmind enrollment this Summer!

When the doors to Forestmind open again on the Summer Solstice – June 21st – I will have 3 additional pricing options that will hopefully be supportive during this cost of living crisis.

So, if you’ve been interested in joining Forestmind, I invite you to take a look at the 4 pricing options…


Option 1 ($9,000)
This is the original/regular/standard price of Forestmind. This option is for those who easily meet all their basic needs*, have expendable income*, have access to personal savings, and spend little time worrying about finances or their ability to make ends meet.

Option 2 ($7,200) & Option 3 ($6,000)
These options are for those who meet their basic needs*, can afford to take time off and take a vacation, and are able to pay for “wants.” Making this investment means you might have to cut back on some discretionary spending (such as going on vacation, buying new clothes, going out to dinner), but the sacrifice is short-term, and will not harm you in the long term.

Option 4 ($4,800)
This option is for those who may stress about meeting their basic needs*, but still regularly achieve them. Making this investment means you might have to cut back on some discretionary spending (such as going on vacation, buying new clothes, going out to dinner), but the sacrifice is short-term, and will not harm you in the long term.


I’m placing my trust in you to be honest about your financial reality. By choosing the highest option that you are honestly and realistically able to pay allows for this flexible pricing structure to benefit the collective. Choose the option that feels like a bit of a stretch, but doesn’t interfere with your basic needs.

These 4 pricing options *may* only be available for the Summer 2023 enrollment period. I will reassess pricing options for Forestmind for Winter enrollment and *may* (or may not) continue similar options depending on how this trial of pricing options goes and how things are financially in the collective.

*Basic Needs: food, housing, transportation. (And, you’ll notice that in every option I included the ability to meet basic needs as criteria. I would never encourage anyone who is having difficulty meeting basic needs to enroll in a program that would take away that ability.)

*Expendable Income: each month you can afford to go to a concert or movie, buy books or new clothes, or go out for dinner and drinks.

Customizable Equity Scholarship

Open Forest is a customizable equity scholarship available for Forestmind membership during each enrollment period.

So, if you’ve been considering joining Forestmind, but price has been a barrier, please apply and write the words ‘Open Forest’ in the last section of your application and we can co-create an equitable membership fee that works for us both.

And, please only apply for this scholarship opportunity if there is a true financial need – not just because you would like a discount. I won’t be asking for any financial information from you and this is fully based on integrity.

Get to know if Forestmind is right for you…

When can I join?

Applications for Forestmind membership open on the Summer Solstice and the Winter Solstice, provided there are spots available. 

The date options for joining are February 1st or August 1st, so I’ll be chatting with those who are interested in joining during the Summer Solstice Season (June 21st – July 21st) or during the Winter Solstice Season (December 21st – January 21st) so they will be ready to join our sweet community on the start date of February 1st or August 1st.

Please email me if you’d like to be placed on the waiting list for priority application, if you have any questions about membership, or if you’d like to schedule a chat: mountainpracticejourneys@gmail.com

How many members are in Forestmind?

The appeal of Forestmind is its small size. Membership is currently capped at 6 members.

This small number supports genuine connection and tailored support.

Your investment allows you to not be seen as a number, but as a beautiful, unique, individual soul.

Is there a payment plan for Forestmind?

You have payment several options for your year membership in Forestmind:

-Pay in Full ($9,000)

-Pay in 2 Installments ($4,500 x 2) [first due upon joining, and the next 6 months later]

-Pay in 4 Installments ($2,250 x 4) [first due upon joining, and then every 3 months]

-Pay in 12 Installments ($750 x 12) [monthly payments of $750]

If you choose to pay in installments, you’ll be responsible for remitting payment on the 1st of the month when payment is due.


If you prefer to pay in full, but don’t have the cash saved up, one payment option is to apply for the American Express Blue Cash Everyday card*. It offers 0% interest for the first 15 months, and can therefore offer a payment option ($600/month for 15 months for your yearly Forestmind membership). This would allow the lowest monthly payment option because it is extended over 15 months.

You can apply with this link and get a $250 statement credit when you spend $2,000 in the first 6 months.


*I applied for this card when I started my business and it was so helpful to have 15 months of 0% interest to get me up and running. I’m still using it today, and love the cash back.

Who is Forestmind for?

Forestmind is for those of you who desire more out of your business and your life. More pleasure. More rest. More income. More ease. More congruence. More space. More success. More balance.

Forestmind is for those of you who want to design a business that truly works with your life.

Forestmind is for those of you who have decided to no longer accept the outdated cultural norms that keep us burned out. We will be actively moving away from and rejecting hustle culture, grind mentality, internalized capitalism, and patriarchy.

Forestmind is for those of you who want to trust yourself more and connect with your intuition when making decisions in your business and your life. I firmly believe that everything you need to create a successful business and life is already inside of you. I want to help you connect with this inner guidance.

Forestmind is for those of you who want to better understand and appreciate the beautiful and unique gifts that your traits of introversion and high sensitivity bring to your work and your life.

Forestmind is for those of you who want to truly understand how you are getting in your own way. You want to dig a little deeper into your patterns and understand yourself more.

Forestmind is for those of you who want to stop the cycle of “procrasti-learning”. What is procrasti-learning? It is defined as managing your anxiety and imposter syndrome by taking one course/workshop/program after another and not implementing the work before moving on to the next training.

In Forestmind, we’re going to slow down. Did you know that the slower you learn, the more you learn? It’s true.

We’re going to dig deep into helpful topics. This will replace the “panicked learning” that you have likely been taking part in – where you jump from one thing to the next out of fear of not knowing enough. Has learning more, researching more, and taking “just one more course” become a substitute for taking action?

Forestmind is for those of you who want to stop making fear- and scarcity-based decisions and allow more abundance and ease into your life.

If you’re ready to slow down and discover how you are getting in your own way so that you can lead a life and run your business with more purpose and ease, Forestmind is the place.

Let’s grow together.

Who is Forestmind NOT for?

Forestmind is NOT for those of you who are seeking out yet another training or course to tell you how to have a successful business – fast. Forestmind is an EXPERIENCE of support and community, not a workshop, training, or course.

Forestmind is NOT for those of you who are unwilling to slow down and take a look at yourself and the patterns that keep you stuck. It’s okay if this concept is scary. It’s not supposed to be easy. I only ask that you are willing.

Forestmind is NOT for those of you who have a goal of making 6 or 7 figures AND DON’T KNOW WHY. It’s okay to have financial goals, but it’s even more important to know why. Is it because you heard that this is a successful number? Or have you really thought about all the ways how this number will support you in the life you want to live? In Forestmind, we’ll spend some time on numbers – but we are also going to throw them out the window at times. When you focus more on the experience that you want to have out of work and life, the numbers will come.

Forestmind is NOT for those of you who are looking for a course on how to start and grow your private practice.

Forestmind is NOT for those of you with a very large team of employees or contractors who work for you. Forestmind is designed for the SOLOpreneur. Those of you who are in business by yourself (who maybe have a support person to help with administrative tasks, or a small team) will be best served by this community.

What is a circle (or mastermind)?

A mastermind is a group whose purpose is to help one another by offering guidance, advice, and support to aid in overcoming challenges and achieving goals.

Intentional small group support in a safe space can be magickally impactful. A mastermind is a living example of the phrase “the whole is greater than the sum of its parts.”

A dynamic energy is created when a group of supportive people come together to encourage, challenge, and validate one another. This energy can initiate new ideas, spark creativity, and inspire bold action.

Note: I have decided to move away from the word mastermind, as it just doesn’t land well with me for many reasons. The term circle feels much better and it reflects the ancient traditions of women’s circles that I’m hoping we can incorporate more of in our busy, disconnected society.

When will the live circle sessions be offered?

There will be 18 live online 2-hour circle sessions throughout the year.

The circle sessions are typically scheduled on Wednesdays at 10:00am ET.

Specific dates will be given to members upon enrollment.

Will I receive individual coaching while in Forestmind?

Yes! You will receive 6 individual coaching sessions with Cindy. Individual coaching sessions are 1 hour in length.

What are the tea chats?

The tea chats are a half-hour individual coaching session with Cindy. You will receive 6 tea chat sessions.

No homework!

Has anyone in the history of the world ever been a fan of receiving homework? No? That’s what I thought.

In Forestmind there are no worksheets, to-do lists, or homework. Your life is busy enough, and I don’t plan on piling on.

You’re welcome.

Is Forestmind just for therapists?

No. Forestmind is designed for any introverted or highly sensitive solopreneur in the helping and healing professions. Some examples may include private practice therapists, counselors, massage therapists, reiki practitioners, copywriters, dietitians, life coaches, and other solo business owners who support others in living their best lives.

Cost is relative.

To some, Forestmind is really expensive. To others, Forestmind is a great value.

You may wonder about whether you should invest in Forestmind. Only you can answer that. However, I will provide my thoughts on investing in a supportive community and give you a few considerations to reflect upon.

I think it can be extremely beneficial to stretch yourself when investing in your personal and professional growth. There have been many times where I have thought twice (or three or four times) before enrolling in a program for myself because the cost was a stretch for me. In the majority of those instances, I was really glad I did and I came away thinking that my experience was worth more than what I paid.

However, with that being said, I don’t think you should invest in any program that could land you in financial hardship. If you are struggling to pay your bills, it may not be the best time to invest in a four or five figure program. But next year may be a different story. You’ll need to take an honest look at your financial situation and come up with a realistic plan of how you can make your investment in the program doable for you.

I do believe that it is important that we invest in ourselves, as this can also give us a boost on an energetic level – showing the universe that we believe in ourselves, helping to propel us forward.

Why is Forestmind membership a year in length?

The answer is all about community, connection, and slowing down. I’m creating the space so that you will have the opportunity to fully experience what Forestmind is all about. You will have the time and space to develop deep, meaningful connections with incredibly supportive people. You will be encouraged and supported as you slow down and do less (in order to grow and experience increased abundance in your life).

Additionally, a year long membership allows us to walk the wheel of the year together, fully experiencing every season and what it has to offer us.

Forestmind is a commitment of your time, money, presence, and energy. But most of all, it’s a commitment to yourself.

Can I stay in Forestmind longer than a year?


Forestmind is ongoing, and is never the same – so come and stay as long as you please. You’ll never wear out your welcome. Consider it your home.

Forestmind is not a training program, course, or workshop with a set curriculum that you work through and complete.

Although there may be specific themes, topics, and focus areas within Forestmind, these are meant to be areas of life-long learning.

For example, my professional studies in the Enneagram, Human Design, Moon Phases, Reiki, Feng Shui, Tarot, Witchcraft, Energy Work, and Mysticism are always ongoing. There’s always more to learn, experience, and embody.

In all honesty, we never fully arrive. We are continually learning and growing. This is what Forestmind is all about.

Forestmind is more about the experience, the embodiment, the community, the conversations, and the support from others who get you. Each year will be different as it will be influenced by the current members’ needs and interests.

Some members will join for a year only, and others may continue their membership for several years, others may join for life, and some may join for a year and take a break only to join again at some point in the future.

Forestmind is here to support you when you need it.

You may not be ready for Forestmind. And that’s okay.

I bet you’re thinking that this whole Forestmind thing sounds interesting and cool. You probably like the idea of it. But, truth be told, not many of you are actually ready for it. But don’t worry, I will be here when you are ready.

Most people aren’t ready to slow down and do less – even if it means creating greater fulfillment in their life. They fear getting off the hamster wheel because it’s what they are used to.

I’m not gonna try and sugar coat it, getting off the hamster wheel can be scary. I mean, have you seen those videos where the hamster is booking it on his little wheel and then stops running and gets tossed around like a rag doll?

What we’re going to be doing in Forestmind is not just a half-hearted attempt at slowing down. A half-hearted attempt at slowing down will get you beat up, because the wheel of your business is still going 100mph.

What we’re going to do is a true, intentional slow down and get off the hamster wheel all together.

Will I learn practical business skills while in Forestmind?

There will be some focus on the practical aspects of running a successful business. Topics may include marketing, copywriting, niching, social media strategy, networking, finances, and much more.

We will also be working on simplifying your business by tailoring your marketing approach in a way that best works for your personality, preferences, and energy levels.

With that being said… in all honesty, I’ve found that true embodiment, inner wisdom, and an unwavering trust and belief in yourself and the Universe is a million times more potent and powerful than any business or marketing strategy. And this is what we practice in Forestmind.

What themes and topic areas can I expect?

Themes and topics will vary. You can expect to see practical, nature-based, and magickal themes related to niching, moon phases, creativity, doing less, astrology, copywriting, messaging, content, human design, social media, introversion, high sensitivity, networking, enneagram, simplifying, money mindset, tarot, scheduling, numerology, business planning, gene keys, visioning, feng shui, websites, witchcraft, and many more.

“We cannot stop the winter or the summer from coming. We cannot stop the spring or the fall or make them other than they are. They are gifts from the universe that we cannot refuse. But we can choose what we will contribute to life when each arrives.” – Gary Zukav
