No Mind Festival 2015
4 – 11 July
We have explored it for thousands of years…now is the time for LIVING IT!
No Mind – Ängsbacka’s mother festival and Europe’s largest alternative festival, is back and invites us once again to deepen our connection to the source of our being and explore what it means to truly be alive and create magic in our lives.
The focus is to explore and be connected to life beyond the mind. What happens when we come alive from that space? It’s not about making the mind our enemy, rather to nourish and enjoy our other aspects of being, that can be so much more juicy and creative.
The 7-day festival is located in the heart of the Swedish countryside and offers a magnificent program of workshops, activities, ceremonies, concerts, parties, and more with around 50 dedicated teachers and musicians joining us this year. These vibrant happenings provide an inspiring container for you to explore your inner being as well as connecting with others in a way that is true for you in each moment.
Take a look at the festival program for the No Mind festival! We have an amazing assortment of workshops and experiences lined up for you. Click here to view the program or you can also download as a PDF.
The theme of this year’s festival
No Mind 2015 now invites all of us to take a deeper step into the art of being a conscious human being – LIVING IT.
What makes you come alive? What opens your heart? How can you live that which is most important for you in your life? What activates your greatest passions and allows you to express them? What connects you and motivates you at a deeper level? What brings you back “home”?
Wherever you are in life, we invite you to explore how you are living it in your own unique way. A chance to discover what is truly important for you and to share that gift with others.
We invite you to start the exploration already now. Take a few deep breaths, direct your attention inside and ask yourself:
“What is Living It for me?”
Feel free to share your experience and feedback with us, anonymously. Our intention is to share these testimonials at the festival so we can inspire each other and find ways to live and create together.
No matter what your practice has been so far, and where you are on your journey, you will find activities to support you to discover new ways of Living It, to deepen that which you already know and to connect with others that can reflect you in the essence of your being.
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.
