SEXSIBILITY, TANTRA FOR COUPLES & SACRED WOMB 2021 CANCELLED

WE WOULD LIKE TO THANK ALL THE PARTICIPANTS AND VOLUNTEERS FOR THEIR TRUST IN ÄNGSBACKA AND THEIR WILLINGNESS TO VISIT THE CONSCIOUS CAMPING WEEKS 2021

Due to having several active cases of Covid19 on the site, Ängsbacka has in collaboration with the local authorities reached the decision to cancel the planned Conscious Camping weeks for the summer. Stay tuned to updates via our mailing list, please subscribe below!

 

AS A SUMMER VOLUNTEER

  • You will explore what it’s like to bring presence and joy into ordinary work.
  • You will arrive a few days before the event begins and you will leave one or two days after it has ended – or stay on for the next one. You agree to arrive and depart on the designated dates for the camps you are attending, to support the flow of the organisation.
  • You are invited to attend all of the activities on the program, outside of your working hours.

YOU AGREE TO

  • Contribute with five hours of working meditation per day, except on your day(s) off. You will normally have one day off per week. If you are a ‘full summer’ volunteer, you will have 2 days off per week.
  • Join the practice of sharing every day, except on your day(s) off.
  • Attend morning meetings every camp morning, 09:00-09:40.

YOU RECEIVE

  • A discounted ticket, in exchange for your contribution.
  • Three vegetarian meals each day. You can sign up for vegan and gluten free alternatives.
  • A camping spot for your tent. If you stay for several camps, you might receive a bunk bed in an indoor or outdoor dormitory.

Service

During your stay at Ängsbacka, we invite you to explore the mindset of service. Not as a concept, but rather as a way of living. Service to your fellow community members, to course participants, to the planet and all its inhabitants, and to yourself.

We believe that through selfless service, through connecting back to our deep need to contribute to the world, we grow in compassion and joy.

Working meditation

Working Meditation is our shared daily practice of service and togetherness. We encourage everyone to use their working hours as active explorations of the present moment. Everything that comes to our minds and bodies is welcomed into the moment. We support each other to remain light-hearted and connected.

Ideally, the time spent in work is happy and fulfilling, regardless of the task. The realisation to be discovered is that the enjoyment of the task comes from within ourselves, not from the nature of the task.

Sharing

Sharing is at the heart of Ängsbacka, and supports everybody here. It is considered a sacred space for speaking and listening from our hearts. It invites you to be seen in your truth and to see others in theirs, without judgement, advice or fixing.

One person shares, 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 stays in the group. We do not bring it up again outside of sharing.

Sharing is an essential and honored practice at Ängsbacka, and we welcome you to this special space with the sensitivity and open-heartedness that is at its core.

The volunteer experience

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 your stay in the summer we do, however, offer support from professional nurses, coaches, and therapists if there is an immediate need.

We encourage you to participate fully and to 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.

YOUR TEAM

You will meet your team at the welcome meeting at the beginning of every camp. From this point onwards, your team coordinator will be your first contact for everything concerning your volunteering experience, working tasks, times, etc. If your coordinator can’t help you, the Volunteer Office will support you.

ACCOMMODATION

Depending on how long you are here for, we offer different types of accommodation options. 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 flat grass camping area at Ängsbacka.

TIME OFF

You are most welcome to join the event program outside of your working hours. Leading up to the event, there are activities & workshops for the volunteers to connect and set the tone for the event.

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.

Teams

Ängsbacka is a busy place during the summer and our events need the support of many different teams to run smoothly:

You have the possibility to pick your preferred team when you fill in the application form. Please keep in mind that this does not mean with 100% certainty that you are actually going to work there. We do our best to match our practical needs with your energy, passion and experience. We ask you to remain flexible however, prepared to occasionally help out in other teams.
