A spiritual adventure retreat In the forest of Skåne, in southern Sweden, hiking in Söderåsen National Park and canoeing on the Rönne river. The walking tracks through the forest are like a scene from a fairy tale and the river Rönne, where we canoe, 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.
We’ll be staying at the Ugglegarden Farmhouse, a simple but pleasant retreat right on the edge of the forest. You can see elk and deer if you’re out at the right time. You can also camp if you’d prefer to be on your own. We’llbe spending our days out in nature but will keep time in the mornings and evenings for meditation, chanting and yoga exercises. After dinner we can share music and games, talk with friends or read a book. If you need some guidance with meditation there are experienced teachers to help.
Who can participate? Anyone with an interest in meditation and/or a willingness to give it a try. You should also be healthy enough to manage the hike on Saturday and brave enough to set off in the canoes on Sunday. There is no danger but there is a small risk of capsizing and getting wet. You shouldn’t come if you can’t go without cigarettes or alcohol for the weekend.
What to Bring: (Please read carefully) Beds and pillows are provided but you will need to bring your own 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.
