WILD SILENCE SWEDEN
— celebrate the New Year with meditation & mindful movement in nature
December 29th 2023 - January 1st 2024, Lindeborgs Eco retreat, Sweden
To mark the passing of time and the New Year, rather than aiming for unrealistic self-improvement, we’d like to invite you to uncover your own basic goodness. To recognise that everything you’ve ever wanted is already there, inside of you. All that’s needed is a shift of perception. Which naturally is easier said than done, after a lifetime of conditioning.
At the Wild Silence we’ll do practices aimed at grounding and calming the nervous system, such as mindful movement, breath work and forest walks. And we’ll do further calming as well as inquiry via the practice of meditation, which is the beating heart of this gathering. All of this will be supported by the beautiful nature, and an atmosphere of digital detox and silence.
For this extended weekend, at an auspicious time, we’ll live by the principle; less is more.
Arrival in the afternoon on December 29th.
We’ll go into silence after dinner that night, and emerge from it in time for a special 3-course New Years dinner served with alcohol-free bubbles.
6:00 -- 7:00 Meditation hall is open for self-practice
7:00 -- 9:00 Flow Yoga & Meditation
12:00 Walking meditation
16:00 Yin Yoga & Meditation
18:00 Dharma talk
21:00 (Optional) Evening meditation
Lindeborg’s is an old farm converted to a modern retreat sanctuary, situated at the end of a road, right by a lake in one of the prettiest areas of Sweden. There’s a sauna, with a path leading to a natural outdoor pool for winter bathing.
Our plant-based meals will be served in a gorgeous orangery with an open fireplace.
There’s more than 74 hectares of pristine land and several trails that zigzag the fields and forests.
The farm is powered by solar panels and bio char, which makes the operation carbon negative. All the spaces are designed and furnished using natural materials and zero waste know-how.
Sheep, cats and chickens live at the farm too.
All the rooms are peaceful and serene, simple yet with a luxurious feel.
