Words really cannot describe this place & especially the community during my stay here. Old friends, new friends, chatting, laughter, silence, crying, tranquility, meditation, work, leaning, happy animals, smiling eyes, hope.... thank you for everything.
Many of the conversations from my stay here will stay deep in my heart. This place of love, care, friendship, and harmony. All in all, I can call the time spent here as quality time: swimming in the lake with ice, jams with guitars, piano and ukulele, healthiest food in the world, stars, touching conversations, yoga classes - all these I will keep in my heart.
Dear Finnskogen! You are a wonderful place and giving good space to people who will grow in life with your wisdom. A beautiful woman is keeping you safely to give you a chance to share your ancient wisdom to human being lost. I will understand that only people who are ready to receive your message will be coming to you to be with youto see more celerity of life. We enjoyed you, my wife and me. And enjoyed being with your keeper Bodil. We wish the people who experience you, will be having this good feeling.

Born in the infinite forest we can find this
wondrous place. A place that holds and gently
carries us back to the magic of childhood.
This magical place is a real paradise full of passion, love and kind souls. I've learned so many things from here and I can't thank you enough for the warmest welcoming and for your sincere heart. I'll miss my super cozy cabin, my organic garden, charming toilet, a cup of chai tea with sunset and all the people I've met here. Thank you so much for having me here!

Thank you very much for a very inspiring visit!
- What a beautiful place and warm welcome!
Greetings to the priests in Solør, Vinger and Odal Prosti
Thank you so much for the lovely atmosphere you have created here, and shared with us this week. To find such peace and happiness being close to nature, closest neighbors horses, cats and ducks. And to walk in the grass, soak in the energy from the forest and to swim in Skasen. We leave with so much love shared this week, and looking forward to doing this again! Thank you!
Anahata Yoga Immersion & Retreat
You come to a place where time stands still.
The rhythms of the forest are independent of the fact that we are in the year 2020 and live in a complex and conceptualized society. At the same time, you follow the seasons here, feel nature up close and can let yourself be taken over by the silence. You feel something of yourself in the forest, and can use nature's many symbols and spaces for contemplation to reflect, find wisdom and basically let go.

Thank you for the introduction to Mindfulness, the taste of sourdough bread and applesauce. Thank you very much for a cozy experience in the autumn darkness!
From Østre Grue Village Women's Association
I would highly recommend life coaching with Bodil. Down to earth, warm, knowledgeable and a very unique ability to listen, give advice and not least communicate and care genuinely.
I myself had some divided opinions about if this was something for me, but after only the first hour with Bodil, a whole new and better chapter opened up.
If you want someone who really cares about you, understands what you have to work with, and is very human and can see you, then you are in the right place!
I also want to mention that she is the only therapist I have been to who actually remembers what I say from time to time, it says a bit about her ability to listen and understand you as a human being.
Thanks a lot for great help
Thank you for a great meditation weekend at Finnskogen! I have never seen a better place to press pause. Warm hospitality, good food and good conversations. Thank you for everything, and for a starry sky!
Thanks for us. 9 days on retreat here have been fantastic and done wonders for body and heart. Namaste.

Wow, this place has held many laughs, screams, cries, roars, throwing stones and hugs and deep breaths this weekend. It is not difficult to create a safe space för people here because your warm and upbeat spirit is found in every nook and oozes the whole atmosphere of this unique place. Thank you for giving us the opportunity to create our very first OYNS here - a milestone in our lives.

Beautiful place, beautiful atmosphere, beautiful sheep, beautiful people, beautiful rooms. Thank you for a beautiful respite and a STRONG body-scan session!
Thank you so much for an instructive and conscious course! I feel very lucky to have participated in your course. I have become more aware of what I can do to handle my thoughts and feelings in a way that is good to myself. The consciousness and acceptance of my thoughts and feelings make me feel a little easier about the heart in difficult situations.
The course even gave me a boost in the direction of greater self-acceptance, and it's really big for me.
Your engagement, warmth and honesty gives a particularly nice mood to the course, which gives me the courage to make me feel at ease in my work with myself.

Bodil's insight is surpassed only by her heart. There really are no limits to what we all contain of depth and potential!
Alma from Denmark
A surprisingly good course.
Pål, 30, Norway
Bodil is a very competent and extremely nice instructor! I've got a lot to reflect on and a lot of useful advices and good guidance. I can only give my very best recommendations! Enjoy the silence in yourself.
Sara Overgaard Jensen, 23, Denmark
I have learned to be more present and have become acquainted with a more authentic part of myself, gained social profits and more acceptance of myself.
Jens, 34, Norway
I have got a tool to sort my thoughts and feelings - to look behind them. I've become better to meditate! The science, psychology and the history of mindfulness were very interesting. Great to meet and be guided. Bodil is a really good and balanced instructor. Really comfortable. The topic of the "analysis" of what lies behind thoughts in everyday life - and the connection to everyday situations was very good.
Merete, 28, Norway
Pleasant atmosphere in the assembly. Apparently calm and friendly instructor, attentive to everyone present. The course could be longer, but good value for money. It is good to be repeated / reminded of good thoughts / strategies / techniques. I enjoyed the wave technique in connection with breathing.
Johan, 37, Norway
I have learned to meditate and to be present in daily tasks. Would recommend the course.
Christian, 41, Norway
The most important thing I have learned is to pay more attention to saying to myself: "It's okay that I feel .... right now "when I'm in a difficult situation. Keeping in mind that I and everyone else are afraid of what others think. Because Bodil has a blend of seriousness, honesty and humor, it became easy and tremendous - and I felt comfortable - an important starting point when I meditate and sit with others.
Peter, 27, Denmark
I have had some good, trusting and open times with both myself and the people around me. I will remember being loving and breath. THANK YOU!
