Book your ticket(s)

A summer festival season at Ängsbacka is an extraordinary container for all that we are and all that we can be. We believe that this year’s special edition of the festival program 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.

The special edition of Sacred Womb – Women’s Festival is now bookable online. We are proud to launch our new August dates for this event, despite the ongoing challenges taking place around the world. The lingering uncertainty has kept us on our toes when it comes to planning for this year’s summer, resulting in the need to condense the festival program to fit into the month of August. We love welcoming all of you for our unforgettable Sacred Womb Festival in a unique august 2020 edition!

 

NEW FESTIVAL DATES

August 26 – August 30, 2020

 

This year we wish to inquire into how the elements affect who and what we are. And we wish to do this not only because it gives us self-awareness, but because it is time for us to fully embrace our nature as Earth Beings.

Welcome to Sacred Womb Festival

In ancient times, women gathered to support each other through transitions and challenges in life. It was understood that the mysteries of feminine creation were directly linked to the vibrations of the Earth.

Once again women are rising all over the world, to claim their power and to stand together in sisterhood.

Sacred Womb Festival is a part of this movement and we wish for it to become a strong platform for all women to gather in sacredness and remembrance. A space to remember who we are, where we came from and where we are going.

Join us from August 26th to August 30th 2020

Is this festival for me?

Answer this simple question, am I a woman?
If your answer is yes, our answer is YES!

With Sacred Womb Festival, we strive to create a space where each and every woman feels welcome, seen and heard. Regardless of age, skin colour, belief system, religion or nationality. We wish to give every woman something they can take into their lives at home. You are welcome, whether you are shy or wild, introvert or outgoing, brand new to this or used to it. All sisters, mothers, grandmothers, daughters and friends! 

This space offers us a chance to investigate how to “be” women in this world, today. Women function differently to men. We have our cycles and we are directly connected to the vibrations of the Earth. We feel Her, even if we are not aware of it. When we come to honour our cyclical nature and understand ourselves and each other on a deeper level as nature beings, we become more relaxed, vibrant, healthy and radiant. We discover how to create our lives without exhausting our resources. In this way we will be able to support our brothers, lovers, children and families, friends and communities, and become a true contribution. We become a part of the solution in this world.

ELEMENTAL WOMAN

With our theme for 2020, we have been inspired strongly by a sister gathering in South America where we celebrated with over 600 women from all over the world. We are bringing this energy to you, creating a true bridge between the worlds. We are all one!

But are we one within ourselves? What are we truly made of? What governs our inner world, our decisions, our actions? How do we create our inner balance and how do we bring that out into the world? And, more importantly, are we in balance with the cycles and elements of our home, the Earth?

We are elemental beings. We are made up of water, earth, fire, air and space! The atoms that form our bodies are the very same as the ones that make up our planet and the stars. The space between our cells is the same space as that in the great beyond.

Are we in elemental balance? Do we take time to cleanse our waters? To feed our fire? Do we allow our inner winds to blow freely? Do we pay attention to how we may experience our earth-being? Are we aware that the elemental nature of our Earth Mother is the very nature we are born into as women?

This year we wish to inquire into how the elements affect who and what we are. And we wish to do this not only because it gives us self-awareness, but because it is time for us to fully embrace our nature as Earth Beings. The movement we wish to create IS a movement back to Earth. By opening our awareness into the elements within, we can bring balance to the world we live in. This Earth needs us to be balanced, inspired, healthy, happy women!

As Above, So Below.

You are welcome to journey with us into Elemental Nature.
