“I would love to live like a river flows, carried by surprise of its own unfolding” – John O’Donohue
Come join us as we meet the marvellousness of Nature resting between the seasons in a re:treat of yourself.
Winter time in Lapland brings an exquisite magic of the darkness. We will move and be moved surrounded by the beauty of Mother Nature surrendering into the greatness of the dark sky and the dancing lights. Our moving moments are taken into Nature in the eternal dance between us and the bigger.
We will explore the light within the darkness through dance, conscious movement, embodied writing and meditation to discover and uncover our creativity vividly swirling within our deep body. We will connect with ourselves and each other allowing that which is dormant within us – our inwardness – to be nourished. In the moist, fertile soil of the dark the seeds of newness, pleasurable and playful life force readies to be birthed back into the light. We widen for the free flow of this conscious stream of creativity constantly moving through us and as us.
At times maybe mesmerised by the mystic of the Arctic we will be moving daily and have plenty of time for resting and for outdoor adventures and play.
The optional husky safari and Sauna by the lake to mention a few. Whether moved in the dance space or playing in the Big Room of Nature – in stillness and sound – we explore the wisdom in moving moments.
Held in the arms of community as a small intimate group you return home with rituals to form and inform your creative everyday practice.
March is the optimal time for seeing the Northen Light’s dance in the sky.
In Loma Paksu near Köngäs, Finland we will be nestled in the charming Finnish house with double rooms, living room, a movement space with a panoramic window overviewing the wilderness outseide. We will be served delicious home cooked vegetarian meals prepared and served buffet style. Traditional Finnish sauna is ready for us each afternoon.

Camilla Steen Larsen lives conscious dance as a lifestyle and a way to be closer to ourselves.
She believes that every single one of us are unique and necessary. Dance was her preferred language since she was three years of age. Moving presence, mindful living, embodied leadership and conscious relating are some of what she brings to the dance floor as well as in the every day.
Her heart strongly beats for the power of leaning into the arms of community to learn from one another. Camilla is a writer in body and on paper, a passionpreneur, a force of nature and along with several trainings of various movement modalities Soul Motion® Teacher, Nia® Black Belt, Lifestyle & Wellbeing Educator she has an education in medical Qi Gong, the Biyun method, a Chinese healing method with 5000 years old roots.
Camilla brings more than 30 years experience in teaching and leading movement and was the first to invite people to join Nia and Soul Motion classes in Denmark 16 years back. Her gift of living in open curiosity to the deep body, the conscious stream of wild writing and her intimate relationship with her music keeps her teachings alive, rich and real.
After owning a beautiful dance space in Copenhagen for 11 years she continues to bring her teachings to floors, performance schools, trainings in Denmark and on international dance floors across the globe – online, in person and 1:1 for women, men and couples to explore the journey into the depths of our wild, the joys of our unique being, the exquisite pleasure and pain of being alive in the body.
During the pandemic she birthed Embodied Permission as a way to open, allow, receive and let life be lived through the body in its entirety – we cross the threshold and enter the limitless.
This and more is what you will experience on the movement floor surrounded by the majestic arctic nature.
