Conscious Camping – No Mind Week

A heart opening experience for spiritual and personal transformation. A summer week that might change your life. Dedicated program for children and youth.

August 1 – August 8, 2020

A summer festival season at Ängsbacka is an extraordinary container for all that we are and all that we can be. Ängsbacka has permission from the municipality and Police to keep running as a camping site for a few hundred people this summer. In order for us to be able to welcome you all in August, we are renaming the festival to ‘Conscious Camping – No Mind week’, to comply with the permission given. This means, for example, that we will have fewer people gathering than usual and that activities will have a limit 50 participants at a time. We believe that this year’s special edition of No Mind will live up to your expectations. Whether this will be your very first visit or your 15th year anniversary as a workshop leader, participant or volunteer.

 

Dhara Milehag is coordinating the unique program for all ages and this year’s No Mind will be especially attractive to all yoga practitioners, as we will be merging part of the Yoga program into the No Mind flow.

No Mind, the highlight of the year for so many of us; kids, teenagers and grown-ups, will most likely look a bit different this year. The heart space will for sure be there, vibrantly welcoming you home into the freedom fields and extended family of Ängsbacka. I love going back there, meeting more and more of you, again and again! And I really hope we can continue to do so for many, many years to come – including this coming summer!” – Dhara Milehag

A TRANSFORMING EXPERIENCE

We offer a transformative week that invites you to connect to your heart, feel alive and free in your body, and to relax into a wisdom beyond the mind.

Come and experience a week full of personal development, dance, movement, spirituality, meditation, shamanism, yoga, creativity and intimacy during the No Mind week.

Workshop leaders, artists and musicians will join during the week and share their passions with you.

You are welcomed just the way you are. You do not have to pretend you are something else, all of your uniqueness is welcome! Here you find a possibility to face your fears and transcend them into awareness and love.

“When we accept all sides of ourselves it often opens up for a feeling of being more authentic and whole as a human being.

Then we can take responsibility for what we feel and need instead of expecting the outer world to take care of it.”

Join us from August 1st to August 8th 2020

NO MIND – ALL GENERATIONS WEEK

At No Mind we invite you to a rich program for children, youth, parents… and adults who want to get closer to their inner child.

Here the family has the opportunity to socialise with each other and with other families in a new way, in a relaxed and safe environment. The family gets a much needed break from everyday routines and stress and can get to know new sides of each other.

No Mind truly is for all generations

We’re the ones we’ve been waiting for

“… We were made for these times.” – Clarissa Pinkola Estés

No Mind 2020 invites us to explore our capacity to be the change we wish for in the world and in our personal lives. To realise that nobody outside ourselves – a politician, guru or partner – needs to change and save us. Instead, it is up to me and you right now to give what we long for to the world and to our lives. To be the change we want to see and use our own power and passion; right here, right now. Let this moment, this life, really count – and let’s make a difference, whatever that means to us.

We are the ones we’ve been waiting for! That is pretty powerful and uplifting actually, no more pointing fingers but rather stepping into and owning our power.

 “Each of us has knowledge of how to live life differently that no one taught us, and that we can find this knowledge inside ourselves and put it to use.” – Alice Walker 

Children’s Village

Children’s Village is located in the center of the area, between the cafe and garden. The Children’s Village offers room for play, rest, storytelling and creative expression.

It is a safe place for all families, with truly amazing activities put together by Caroline and Nadia for children, youth and their parents who have a longing for being physically active during the week.

Volleyball, martial arts, rounders, No Mind soccer tournament, parkour and other fun things will be offered. For the smallest ones, we have a trained pre-school staff and a magical guest who comes every day and finds adventure with the kids, sometimes a super woman, sometimes a fairy or perhaps a clown. We have many adventures in the forest where we play, explore and build. In addition, we have a Creativity Tent with various workshops every day.

During specific times each day we offer childcare for children over 4 years. This is a fun, creative and safe place where parents can leave their children while they attend workshops and take care of themselves for a few hours. We strive to have staff who speak both English, Swedish, Danish and Norwegian so that most of the kids can be understood and we can meet their needs.

Toddlers & babies

For children under 4 years old we have our own “No Mind babies” area, a nice place for parents to be with their children and meet other parents. (Note: This is not babysitting for children under 4 years.)

Children (4-12 Years old)

The Children’s Village is open to all children and parents to socialise, play, paint, sing, tell stories, wrestling in the grass, meet new friends, and everything else related to the No Mind week.

YOUTH (13-18 Years old)

No Mind also offers an engaging program for young people. In various exercises and workshops, we create community and the opportunity for personal growth. Of course there is also space to just be and keep up with new and old friends.
