ALCOHOL-FREE & DRUG-FREE
Ängsbacka is best experienced in full presence and therefore we are a completely alcohol- and drug free environment. If you are found under the influence, or if you bring drugs or alcohol to Ängsbacka, we will ask you to leave immediately.
OUR SUPPORTIVE STRUCTURE
As a volunteer you are fully responsible for your own health and wellbeing during your stay. During our summer festivals we do, however, offer support from professional nurses, coaches, and therapists if there is an immediate need.
We encourage you to participate fully and devote yourself to the daily program and the exploration of how the tools offered in meetings, workshops and sharing can be of support for you.
You will meet your team at the welcome meeting at the beginning of every festival camp. From this point your team coordinator is your first contact for everything concerning your volunteer experience, working tasks, times etc. If your coordinator can’t help you, the Volunteer Office will support you.
Depending on how long you are here for, we offer different types of accommodation. When given accommodation by Ängsbacka, you will sleep in a bunk bed in a shared space with others. The longer you choose to stay at Ängsbacka, the more choices you will have. Bring your own (warm) sleeping gear!
We encourage you to bring your own tent! There’s a big camping area at Ängsbacka.
WHEN YOU ARE NOT WORKING
You are most welcome to join the festival program outside of your working meditation hours. Leading up to the festival, there are activities & workshops for the volunteers to connect and set the tone for the festival.
Ängsbacka is a very social environment, and it might have an overstimulating effect. Remember to take time for yourself during your days off and to have some time away from all activities. Some great options are for instance taking a walk in the forest or a swim in the lake.
