A transforming experience

No Mind is Scandinavia’s biggest alternative festival – a transformative gathering to open our hearts, become alive and free in our bodies, and relax into a wisdom beyond the mind.

This week-long festival is located in the beautiful Swedish countryside and has gathered around 1000 people yearly for 20 years. It offers a magnificent program of workshops, concerts, ceremonies and happenings within spirituality, personal development, dance and movement, meditation, shamanism, yoga, intimacy, creativity and more…

More than 70 inspiring workshop leaders, artists and musicians will join us from all over the world to share their passions. Bring your family and friends or just come on your own. The No Mind Festival is truly a place where we can relax just as we are, and feel at home in ourselves and with each other.

Theme for the Festival 2017

Into Unity

 

CommUnity is the new Buddha”

– Thich Nhat Hahn



When we come into this world as children it is natural for us to connect and unite with others. Later most of us learn to disconnect and separate. Wouldn’t it be amazing and fun to reclaim some of that innocent openness again?

True Unity means giving space for our individual uniqueness;  our joy, love and power as well as our shadow sides. By resting in ourselves as we really are in this moment, we open up to a deeper union with the world inside us as well as the one around us.

Let’s come together for the No Mind festival 2017 on a journey Into Unity!


A festival for the whole family

The festival offers a dedicated family program with fun things to do for children and teens who can participate without their parents; song, music, dance, creative activities, excursions in the forest, sports, games, yoga and more.

The area around Ängsbacka is safe and lovely for kids to explore. Here you can enjoy a deeply nourishing holiday for body, soul and heart.

Workshop leaders for the children & youth program will be added to website regularly.

 

A rich festival program for all the senses

As we believe in the uniqueness of each individual and respect the different paths that we all walk upon, we want to invite as many different flavors as possible to this great happening.

The festival is also a possibility to face our fears and transcend them into awareness and love. We invite our shadow sides to be shown to us and embraced by us, as we see it as an important part of being authentic and whole as humans. Then we can take responsibility for what we feel and need instead of expecting the outer world to take care of it.

Here the family has the opportunity to socialize with each other and with other families in a new way, in a relaxed and safe environment. The family gets a much needed break from everyday routines and stress and can get to know new sides of each other. Read Malina Arps blog about being a child – and later a mother – at Ängsbacka!

Children’s Village – a place where all ages come together

Children’s Village is located in the center of the festival area, between the cafe and garden. Here the children are given their rightful place; centrally in life, society and the festival. The Children’s Village offers room for play, rest, storytelling and creative expression. It´s a safe place for all families where Anna Elheim has put together a truly amazing program for children, youth and their parents who have a longing for being physically active during the week.

Volleyball, martial arts, rounders, No Mind soccer tournament, parkour and other fun things will be offered. For the smallest ones, we have a trained pre-school staff and a magical guest who comes every day and finds adventure with the kids, sometimes a super woman, sometimes a fairy or perhaps a clown. We have many adventures in the forest where we play, explore and build. In addition, we have a Creativity Tent with various workshops every day.

During specific times each day we offer childcare for children over 4 years. This is a fun, creative and safe place where parents can leave their children while they attend workshops and take care of themselves for a few hours. We strive to have staff who speak both English, Swedish, Danish and Norwegian so that most of the kids can be understood and we can meet their needs.

Toddlers and babies

For children under 4 years we have our own “No Mind babies” area, a nice place for parents to be with their children and meet other parents. (Note: This is not babysitting for children under 4 years.)

Children’s Village is open to all children and parents to socialize, play, paint, sing, tell stories, wrestling in the grass, meet new friends, and everything else related to the festival experience.

Youth (13 – 18 years)

No Mind also offers an engaging program for young people. In various exercises and workshops, we create community and the opportunity for personal growth. Of course there is also the opportunity to just be and keep up with new and old friends.

Young people are welcome to also be volunteers. Participation in a volunteer group can be an opportunity to experience how it is to take responsibility and contribute, as well as provide a valuable experience of community.

"The Absolute you is older than God" - Bentinho Massaro

Biography:

<p>Since his first profound enlightenment experience at age 14, Bentinho has been riding the waves of an intensely awakened life. He started teaching at age 18 and today, at 29, he is an internationally recognized spiritual teacher and empowerment speaker who holds frequent retreats in major US and European cities. </p>
<p>Eventually exhausted after a relentless quest, exploring all kinds of teachers, philosophies and methods, Bentinho realized that all the spiritual &quot;authorities&quot; were no more enlightened than himself, and he made a radical decision: to seek only within his own being, following his own resonance and trusting his intuition without hesitation. There he discovered that the &quot;ultimate answer&quot; was to be found in the presence of Existence itself - in all its infinite potential.</p>
<p>A few years after being highly familiar with the presence of Existence itself, he realized what he calls &#039;The Absolute&#039; which he says is beyond Existence as we know it. </p>

By observing the breath entering and leaving the body, through the practice of Kriya Yoga, one will come to the formless state.

<p>Gabriela was born with a deep longing to learn and understand the mystery of life. Since she was mastering the astral traveling and was familiar with inquiry from a early age, she knew through direct experience that the dimensions of being are not reduced to a physical Body.

In 1994 she met her Kriya Yoga Master and there was a deep recognition of the ancient Master-disciple connection.<br />

Mooji

Satsang - the Direct Recognition and Experience of Truth (via online livestream)

Biography:

<p>In direct and open interactions with advaita zen master Mooji, those who come with a genuine urge for freedom are pulled by the power of his pointings into the recognition of the infinite Self we are. While Mooji?s presence exudes compassion and devotion, his unity with Truth is also potently shared through self-inquiry?the unsparing wisdom light which dispels the delusions and suffering common to human experiencing. </p>
<p>Born in Jamaica, Mooji moved to London as a teenager. In 1987, an encounter with a Christian mystic inspired Mooji to ?walk out of his life??an expression he uses to convey the profundity of that meeting. In 1993, Mooji met his Master Papaji through whose grace and presence whatever remained of an active ego was finally uprooted. Recognising Mooji?s radiance, people in search of the direct experience of Truth began to seek him out. The capacity to guide them arose spontaneously. Mooji shares Satsang world-wide with all who yearn to discover their true nature. </p>
