Bridging worlds

Beyond good and bad lies a bridge
where we may shine in our fullness
Bridging inner and outer worlds,
dark and light, us and them, you and I

There is more for us in these worlds to see
Come step out on this bridge with me!”
 

Welcome to the No Mind Festival 2016 – powerful, magical and irresistible!

 

As Ängsbacka celebrates 20 years, No Mind is a sparkling mix of new and familiar faces guiding us into dance, music, meditation, creativity, intimacy, heart-opening encounters as well as wisdom teachings and shamanism. We want to create an intimate feeling, even if this is one of the big alternative festivals in Europe. 

The theme this year is “Bridging Worlds” and to us it means a lot. Like opening up for new meetings, reaching out a hand to someone, grabbing another one. Being brave – and then we may have to experience fear. Facing the resistance in ourselves and in our bodies. Opening up to another being is vulnerable and might make us shiver. We take the first step and that first step is all there is. It takes us onto the bridge. Here I am, will you meet me when I reach out?

Bridging Worlds to us is also about opening up for and sharing new perspectives, merging different experiences and bringing to our daily life what we most love from the festival, so that we can enjoy every day to the fullest.

To us this theme is magical. What does Bridging Worlds mean to you?

So, we welcome you to a magical week with over 60 workshop leaders and musicians offering exciting and transforming journeys within and without. There will be workshops, ceremonies, concerts, parties and a great program for children and teens! We open worlds where everything within us is welcome and supported, while also being part of the big festival community which we expand into during this week. The No Mind Festival is a heartful space for meeting old friends and finding new ones.

A week at The No Mind Festival can open up for unknown possibilities in our lives, providing keys to how we really want to live, feel and be. The No Mind adventure can be transformational beyond imagination and give us a taste of how joyful, passionate and powerful life can be.

The No Mind Festival is a powerful container where magic and transformation can happen. There is something here for everyone.

Welcome with your family, with friends or just come on your own. This is truly a place where you can relax just as you are, feel at home with yourselves and in togetherness. 


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.

Delightful nature and hearty nourishment

The festival area is situated in abundant nature with surrounding forests, a majestic garden and lakes nearby to swim on hot days. We offer tasty and nutritious vegetarian food 3 times a day and the café is filled with delicious desserts, snacks and sandwiches as well as a large variety of raw food treats. And when you’re ready to wind down after a long day, take a steamy rest in our large wood-heated sauna.

Sharing Groups – a beautiful way to integrate and land

Every day for one hour we meet in our own small sharing group, a kind of festival family where you can connect with yourself and the others in a safe and held space. Here you can integrate your experiences by putting words on them without interruption and being heard in complete and accepting presence. It’s a good place to land, a grounding place to come back to every day. And a place where friendships are made for life.
