Spiritual Adventure Retreat in Sweden

Join us for the Spiritual Adventure Retreat on June 26-28!

!!Due to the Covid regulations and Danish border control with Sweden we would advise only those who have Danish residence join us for the retreat.

We will be spending our time in the forest of Skåne, in southern Sweden, hiking in Söderåsen National Park and then canoeing on the Rönne river.

The walking tracks through the Skåne forest are like a scene from a fairy tale and the river Rönne, where we will be canoeing, wanders through fields and forests full of birds and animals who watch as you go past. There are a few gentle rapids to add some excitement and challenge.
There’s a chance of ending up in the water but it’s not deep and it’s part of the fun;)

⭐️Canoe trip
We will start canoeing from Djupadal and finish at Ljungbyhed. The whole trip will take us about 5-5,5 hours. Check the map here https://www.google.com/maps/d/viewer?msa=0&mid=1hXyZXTa9t6VUbZpliBE4-t9UW3g&ll=56.09148100000002%2C13.216724&z=16

⭐️Accommodation
We will be camping at the rest area Herrevadskloster. There are toilets, wind shelters and fireplaces available. Be sure to bring your own tent, sleeping bag and warm clothes.

⭐️Leisure
We’ll be spending our days out in nature but keep time in the mornings and evenings for meditation, chanting and yoga exercises. After dinner we can share music and games 🎸, have late nights talking and singing by the fire, count stars or swim in the river nearby.

If you need some guidance with meditation there are always experienced teachers to help.

⭐️What to bring? (Please read carefully)
We will be camping so you will need to bring your own tent and sleeping bag/sheets, etc. Mornings and evenings can get cool so it’s good to bring a sweater and jacket. A nice pair of walking shoes (trainers will do) and some light shoes or sandals that you don’t mind getting wet. Hat and sun screen are also advised and a day pack for carrying your lunch, camera, water bottle, jacket, etc. will allow you to keep your hands free. The river is also nice for swimming so bring your swim suit. Some other camping essentials include: flashlight and/or hanging lantern, insect repellant and waterproof poncho in case of rain.
