Whispers of the Trees

A 4 day Womens Retreat NEW dates pending

Hanekulla Natur Terapi in Sweden

Spring equinox, the promise of new beginnings hanging in the air, but not yet visible to the human eye. Nature still firmly in winters grip, with the occasional warm day and crisp blue sky. The trees naked and bare, with trunks and branches showing only hints of buds at the most.

AHO – but

if you take the time to watch and listen,

you might see a shine from the trunk,

you might hear a calling from the branches,

you might feel a stream of lifeforce building,

a deep roaring from the earth.

The trees are ready,

waiting for the right conditions to

bravely start this year’s growth.


What about you?

How would you like to take some time to prepare YOUR ground for the new season of unfolding?

Take the time to listen to the call from your Soul, to feel into the inspiration from the “More than Human World” – as usual way ahead of us, busy humans as we are!

If this resonates with you here is our invitation:

Come to the Wild for a few days! Step into a community of women.

Spend your days breathing with the Wind, wandering with wonder, staying close and still enough to listen to the call from Mother Nature at the depths of your own Soul!

We will offer practices of breathing, Qi-gong, meditation, nature connection, focusing, dancing…there will be fire, there will be drumming and humming! Warmth of heart and icecold water and air! Together we will prepare vibrantly healthy meals and enjoy great company in very special surroundings.

The days will look something like this:

7:30-10 Morning snack, breathing, qi-gong and meditation/ice-bath

10-12:30 Brunch and break

12:30 – 17 Nature practices on the land – leading up to some longer solotime on Saturday

18 - 21 Dinner and evening activity

Spring has a reputation of holding all-seasons-in-a-day, weather being inspiring unpredictable! The program will therefore be subject to a listening in to the Wind, to feeling the temperature, to sensing the energy of the day and the group.

There is a max of 10 participants - allowing space to connect and retreat.
