In July 2021 Finnskogen Retreat is open for those who want to live at the farm for shorter or longer periods. You have the opportunity to rent a bed in a dorm or in a private room, and participate in the daily retreat program, either for a few days, or up to several weeks.
We follow a dimmed weekly and daily rhythm with morning yoga, meditation, times of silence, communal meals, conversations, daily assignments and farm work, time for our own studies, hiking, workshops, contemplation and fellowship. The rhythms are inspired by monastic life.
Volunteers from various places and nations participate and contribute with yoga, cooking, construction and maintenance, field work, animal care, support, etc. This year, there is uncertainty associated with the volunteers who are expected from abroad, due to the travel restrictions, which means that the group of guests share in making meals, and that this is part of the community work at the farm.
The purpose of the offer of personal retreat is to be a place where you can deepen your own yoga- or meditation practice, or solve deeper life challenges. The community, the nature, the values and the routines will be the supporting and healing components.
The number of people on the farm will vary from a few to around 20.
The retreat is open to all who want a different vacation, feel like spending some time in a natural, rural and simple environment, follow the given structure, and want to learn more about meditation, mindfulness, yoga and awareness.
Many of us sometimes also experience stress, burnout or internal unrest, depression or anxiety, low self esteem or insecurity, vulnerability, loneliness or emptiness, or we are looking for something meaningful in our lives.
Weekly groups, workshops and teaching are based on wisdom traditions and seek to have a sight behind the major religions.
The retreat houses a variable and unique mix of people who share their experiences and learning and who support each other in their quest for a good life.
Personal retreat is open from July 1st to July 14th, 2022.
In the space between your thoughts, there is your truth.
