Summer Mindfulness and Yoga Retreat
Gullnåsgarden, in Stromstad, Sweden
July 22- 27
Enjoy 5 nights in the summer destination of Stromstad for a vacation-style retreat with mindfulness and gentle yoga. This is an opportunity to relax in a nurturing and supportive environment, find balance, and re-connect with yourself, community, and the beauty of nature. Gullnåsgard is an old farm converted into a retreat center on the beautiful islands next to the famous Koster islands, just under 2 hours drive from Oslo. There will be daily yoga that is open to all levels, mindfulness and compassion sessions, 3 vegetarian meals, and plenty of time to just BE. We can practice together in mindful walks through the nature reserve, on the rocks by the ocean, or in the garden orchards around the land. In the evenings, we can also explore mindful inquiry and listening in satsang, where we can share our wisdom. Or bath in the healing sounds of Tibetan bowls.
There will be free time to kayak on the water, bike around the islands, receive a healing treatment, write in your journal, or just enjoy the moment doing nothing. There is also a sauna on the land. This mindful yoga retreat is an invitation to quiet the mind, open the senses, renew the body and refill the heart!
