Embark into the Swedish forest for 4 days Retreat & Summer Soul Journey. Expand your awareness by tending inner and outer wilderness. With nature, body and soul as our primary guide to conscious awareness we’ll embark on a transformational journey in a heart warm community.

With nature as our greatest teacher and a community where we stand together, this retreat can deepen our connection, understanding and relationship with ourselves, others and the natural world.

The practice spring from nature-based cultures, ceremonies and rituals inside and outside. It is an intertwining of body awareness, soul, science and stories – old stories and new stories that can be medicine for our journey in life and our relationship to Nature. The retreat is woven from indigenous ways of knowing, scientific knowledge and the art of soul craft. We explore practices that bridge a variety of traditions with a primary inspiration from shamanism. It’s a circle to honor all of our relations and Earth as a gift. A place to remember, sense and fell that people and land are good medicine for each other.

You’re invited to explore a wide range of soul craft practices that magnifies our life energy. Practices that focus attention so that attention becomes intention. It’s a journey to explore pathways to listen to the voice of your body, intuition and soul and how to ”embody your gifts”.

Your ”sacred work” is what nature-based traditions call our giveaway to our people and place”.

My inspiration is nature, body and soul as our primary guide to conscious presence and vitality. Inspiration is especially nature based traditions and shamanism and practices that build bridges between cultures over time. Education from Esalen Institute in California, around the world and Denmark. Important teachers in shamanism are: Anette Høst & Sandra Ingermann. Meditation with Jesper Westmark & Christofer Germer. Modern dance/impro with Jenny Major, 5 Rythms at Esalen, Yoga and body work is various forms. I have 25 years of movement background and 10 years of teaching experience – 6 years of facilitating retreats. The common thread is also experience and education within HR (Cand. Soc. HRM), team management, consulting & coaching. A turning point in life in 2012 became a new starting point - therefore HR for me transformed into Human Retreat.

Will be announced soon.

Mirjam’s words about participating in 2017 at Easter Retreat
”The retreat I’ve been at was amazing, mind blowing and incredible. There are actually no words to describe how amazing the setting, nature and Anne Mette is as an inspiring guide. I recommend to everyone to book a retreat. Your soul will love you forever for it!”

Mirjam, 2019

“The breezes at dawn
have secrets to tell you
Don't go back to sleep!
You must ask for what you really want.
Don't go back to sleep!
People are going back and forth
across the doorsill
where the two worlds touch,
The door is round and open
Don't go back to sleep!”

― Rumi
