    Description

    Welcome 😊

    This is an invitation to relax and enjoy life living close to beautiful nature. If you have a longing to retreat, reconnect with yourself, meditate and live a life in the present moment this could be a place for you.

    This place does not adhere to any particular tradition itself — only to follow your own heart and intuitive guidance.

    Your space, personal calling and where you are on your spiritual journey is prioritised and you decide for yourself how you would like to experience your stay – in stillness and introspection or in a more engaging stay with activities.

    Eastern philosophies and a meditative lifestyle is a central part of this place but you are welcome whether you have been on your spiritual journey for a long time or if you are at the beginning of your journey.

    A stay hopes to encourage a realization that beyond our many thoughts and many times stressful lives there is always a stillness and peace at the core of our being that we can learn to shift our focus to and have our lives be expressed and manifested from. This is not necessarily exclusively done through formal practices such as sitting meditation or satsang but rather by being and ’living’ the meditative state – realising that stillness and silence is something that's already within us.


    Answers to common questions 😊

    How many people are staying here?
    To keep an atmosphere of stillness, harmony and joy there is an intention to welcome people with whom these words resonate deeply. Depending on the interest to visit at the moment there are typically between 1-5 people at the same time.

    What does a day look like?
    A little word picture of what a usual stay and day often includes: inviting the natural flow of life, time and space for reconnecting with yourself, sharing meditation or time on your own, going for walks in nature, existential talks and sharings, plant based meals, doing what inspires you in your own time and pace, visiting and exploring the beautiful nature of Sweden and practicing living meditation.

    A few words about how this place came about:
    This place manifested from a fifteen year meditation and advaita practice that culminated in a two months meditation experience where stillness stayed. The last seven years have included holding silent retreats in Sweden on a regular basis.

    Is it possible to have a video call before a stay?
    Yes, calls are almost always held before a stay. It’s a great way for you to get a feel for if this experience is something for you. The call is just a casual conversation that often times includes plenty of silence, so please feel free to let go of any pressure to talk or carry the conversation unless you actually feel like doing so.

    Please touch upon your spiritual journey, interest and why this place resonates with you in your request 😊
