Facilitated by Certified Facilitators: Ernest Holm Svendsen, Helena Montelius and Nayano Skaaning
Dear The Work Friends!
We are happy to announce that we are arranging a 5-day Scandinavian Summer Camp for The Work in southern Sweden on August 21st - 25th 2019, and you are invited!
Question your stressful thoughts
Join us on a 5-day journey to deepen our awareness and free ourselves from identification with our stressful thoughts. Let’s vitalize our practice of inquiry, connect with each other through kindness of our loving hearts and experience the power of The Work in action as we question our beliefs and open to new depths of peace, joy and freedom in our lives. Whether you are a newcomer or experienced in The Work, you will find suitable workshops and training sessions to explore The Work with Certified Facilitators and experienced members of The Institute for The Work.
We'll start our days with a silent walking practice; "The Morning Walk" before breakfast. (There will also be Yoga for the real early risers.) During the day we will offer workshops on different topics; supporting the deepening of your practice and how to use inquiry in specific areas in life. Evenings are open for sessions of different sorts, music, movement, silence, rest and special offerings from staff and participants, or maybe just to hang out with friends or take a sauna.
All languages and experience levels are welcome
The camp is for everyone interested in The Work, beginners and experienced practitioners alike. The general language will be English and when we work in groups or in pairs, we will speak whatever language works for all. We also offer support for translation into Swedish, Danish and Norwegian – please contact us if you require this.
Healthy food at a beautiful, tranquil venue
We have found a place in the heart of Scandinavia, Mundekulla, which some of you might know already. It’s an amazing venue with peaceful, rural surroundings, great food, a gorgeous sauna and a lake to swim in. We will serve healthy vegetarian/vegan meals, most of it organic from a nearby biodynamic farm. The meals include breakfast, lunch, afternoon tea and dinner. Mundekulla offers pleasant rooms with comfortable beds. Most have private shower and toilet – please see the options for accommodation below.
The Summer Camp starts Wednesday, August 21st at 13.00 and ends Sunday, August 25th at 15.00.
The Summer Camp is arranged by the non-profit Scandinavian association for The Work of Byron Katie. We are a volunteer group of passionate people who have experienced the benefits of The Work in our own lives and we are enthusiastic to make this Summer Camp come alive to share similar experiences with you. Any profits will be used to arrange next year’s camp.
For those of you in the Certification program to become certified facilitators, this Camp will give you 24 Credit Hours.
Please let us know if you have any questions and we are happy to assist. Simply send an email to: firstname.lastname@example.org
