Cozy Christmas Celebration and Winter Solstice
21 – 26 December 2013
What are you longing for this Christmas? Come create and celebrate with us at Ängsbacka in a spirit of profound communion, presence and joy! We got the good food, plenty of time for each other and the opportunity to fully relax into the warmth of the sparkling fireplace. Out there are the magical woods of Värmland…maybe we’ll see Santa Claus come from the trees with his lantern…?
Everyone can join in, big or small. Come just as you are, spiritual or not, happy or not. This Christmas we get the chance to land in ourselves.
Christmas at Ängsbacka 2013 involves a joint creation from all of us. This year we will be coming together to create the activities and workshops that we want. We have several great offerings in store and also invite you to contribute with your own workshop or music if you feel inspired! So without further ado, here are some of the great program offerings we have this year.

For more detailed information about all the workshops and activities, please see the Program page.
Of course, we also meet in a daily sharing group where we can connect and express ourselves freely. If you feel like relaxing, you can always choose to go on forest walks, silent sitting in the Strawbale House, or enjoy the toasty sauna! Bring a present for Christmas Eve, something you already have at home, buy second-hand or maybe a fruit tree to a family in Cambodia…
