THE UNFORGETTABLE & EXTRAORDINARY ÄNGSBACKA FESTIVALS!

IN A UNIQUE AUGUST 2020 EDITION

Dear Ängsbacka Friends

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 No Mind, Tantra and Sexsibility Festivals 2020 is now bookable online. We are proud to launch our new August dates for these events, 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 Ängsbacka Festivals in a unique august 2020 edition!

The recent developments can be an inspiration to tap into the expansive mantra of ‘Anything is possible!’ to overcome all obstacles and live from this place of possibility in all aspects of our being. There were some events that simply could not fit into the compromised time frame for our summer festivals this year. Though we couldn’t hold them this year, our Midsummer Celebration, all generations festival Conscious Parenting and our full edition of the Ängsbacka Yoga Festival will make a glorious comeback in 2021. Right now, we want to take the opportunity to especially thank all the festival program coordinators for their hard work and understanding in these trying times, for the events that will still happen and the ones that are postponed. Thank you so much dear ones, your graceful and creative collaboration makes all the difference when scheduling and planning for this alternative summer.

So, here we are now, with a lot of co-creation, planning and preparations still to come – our aim and intention already firmly set on creating unforgettable new experiences, memories and friendships at the peak of summer 2020. Now it is up to all of us to make it happen! Many have already booked their tickets for the original dates and these people have been contacted with specific information regarding their participation. The very best way of supporting the unfolding of the summer 2020 events is by booking a ticket for yourself, friends and family! 

As you will know from our fundraising campaign, we, like so many others in the world have been struggling financially during these challenging times. With the loss of income from our spring courses and Easter festival season having hit us extremely hard. By buying tickets now you will help us rise from these challenges and move forward into joining us for an unforgettable summer and in the process help Ängsbacka to flourish for generations to come.

 

We made our policy a bit more generous at this time (until 2020-08-31) by not requesting a doctor’s note to enable late cancellations (last 14 days before an event). Details for cancellation.

What is an Ängsbacka Festival

Our festivals always start with connecting in a WELCOME CEREMONY on the first night, with music, inspiration, the intention of the festival and presentation of the workshop leaders.


Each day you have a number of parallel WORKSHOPS to choose from, and in the evenings there are concerts, dance, open stage or simply time for hanging out in the café.


During the festival you will participate in a daily SHARING circle. Together you create a sacred space for open hearted and attentive listening. One person shares at a time, while the others sit in silence paying attention to the person sharing. Everyone in the group will have the same amount of time available to them and everything that is said or done within this sacred space stays there, you do not bring it up outside sharing.

Here we can integrate experiences by putting words to them. This is a good place to land, a grounding place to come to every day. And a place where friendships for life can be born.

Our festivals offer you the chance to try out various workshops and activities BASED ON ONE’S OWN LONGING IN THE PRESENT MOMENT. We aim to set each time slot in the program so there is something for everyone, regardless if one wants stillness, inspiration, or intensity and expression.


Ängsbacka is an international course and festival center with people from all over the world. The main language during the festivals is ENGLISH.


If there is a longing for a deeper experience there is the possibility to book a treatment by selected professional therapists in our HEALING CIRCLE. The participants are offered a variety of massage, energy work, counseling and coaching from selected professional therapists. You book and pay for your session in cash on-site at Ängsbacka.

The festival area is situated in abundant nature with surrounding forests, a majestic garden and lakes nearby to swim on hot days.

Tasty and nutrious VEGETARIAN FOOD is served three times a day. We offer plenty of locally produced and organic food.

The CAFÉ of Ängsbacka is filled with yummy desserts, snacks, sandwiches and raw food cakes. When you’re ready to wind down after a long day you can enjoy take a steamy rest in the large WOOD-FIRED SAUNA.


Ängsbacka has a policy of ZERO TOLERANCE FOR ILLICIT DRUG AND ALCOHOL. We dont serve alcohol, and it is not allowed to drink or to be under influence of alcohol or other subtstances when you are at Ängsbacka.

If you are found under the influence, we will ask you to leave immediately.

A COMMON FIELD

When people share what is special for them about Ängsbacka’s festivals, they often refer to the atmosphere and the overall experience.

When enough people in a group dare to open up, be vulnerable and communicate from the heart, a “common field” arises. In that field, we feel seen, heard and held, and have the opportunity to express (and be met in) the whole spectrum of our feelings – joy, zest for life, sadness, anger and frustration.

Something deep within us relaxes and an acceptance towards ourselves and others arrives.

There are those who call Ängsbacka a magical place. Perhaps it’s because of this field that arises. A field of magic.

COMING HOME TO YOURSELF

Participants of all ages – from Sweden and the rest of the world – return to Ängsbacka’s festivals year after year. Both for the experience of coming home to themselves – and for the feeling of being naturally involved in something bigger than themselves.
