    Description

    Hey there! :)

    

This is a retreat centre in the south of Sweden that organise silent retreats during the weekends. This is purely a cultural exchange and no work is needed or expected from you while being here, only experiencing retreats, being, doing meditation or yoga practice, walk in amazing nature reserves, relax, eat lovely food, watch the stars.. well, you get the idea :)

    

The nature in Blekinge is absolutely amazing and to me it’s probably the most beautiful around (I guess I'm a bit biased though :) You have birch trees and pine trees hanging out next to each other, deers strolling around in the garden, forests that look like they come straight out of a fairy tale. The ocean is 15 minutes away, the forest 3 seconds away and there are around 10 lakes within walking distance. The beautiful Mörrum river flows through the landscape and is like the Swedish Ganges river.

    If you want to just be, laugh and experience amazing Swedish nature.. This is the place for you! :)
