29 October - 31 October3100kr
Take a break from your everyday life and come for a weekend Men’s Retreat! Connect with other men, connect with nature and move into the wild of the unknown.
The theme this time is commitment. To live a life of purpose is based in commitment. If we can’t commit – wheather it is to a relationship, to our work, to our values, to a healthy lifestyle, to a workout routine, to being a good parent etc – we will just follow whatever feels good in the moment, and we are at risk of getting ruled by addictions and superficiality. To live a life of depth depends on our ability to commit and dedicate. We will explore this theme through sharing, enquiry, yoga, meditation, and other experiences. At times it will be cozy, and at times it will be freaking challenging. Just as life is. To consciously choose to face different kinds of situations and experiences will prepare you for when life throws unexpected things your way. The retreat includes:
- Kundaliniyoga and meditation
- Gong relaxation & Sound healing
- Self-reflection, inner enquiry and sharing circles
- Cold baths & Sauna
- Martial art games
- Voice work
- Building trust with other men
- Nourishing food
- Discovering and developing your relation to nature
- and more
The weekend is spent at Skeppsudden, a beautiful retreat center 2 hrs south of Stockholm. Surrounded by nature, the water and the heat of the sauna, we are close to the elements and the sensations in the body. In supportive community with other men, we explore different sides of ourselves, some known, some unknown.
