“Wisdom in Moments”
Arctic Retreat
March 22-26, 2023
Lapland, Finland

 

In the sacred heart of winter. Be soothed by Mother Earth as she rests through her dormant months.
Spend five days and four long, magical nights tucked away in the quiet cold of the Arctic, allowing yourself to be enveloped by the mysteries of darkness and dancing light.

THE RETREAT
Drawing from the natural surrounding beauty of the Arctic, we will experience conscious movement, embodied writing, meditation, and play to explore and expand the relationship to our creativity.
Snug and warm, together we will connect with ourselves and each other allowing that which is dormant within us – our inwardness – to be nourished.
The darkness hold the seeds that are ready to be birthed back into the light and in the moist, fertile soil of the dark new creative, playful life force readies in ease.
We discover the Wisdom in Moments of feeling stuck​. We widen for the free flow of the conscious stream constantly moving through us and as us.
We will be nested in the arms of community as a small intimate group for you to receive individual guidance, mesmerised by the mystic of the Arctic and return home with rituals to form and inform your creative everyday practice.

ACCOMMODATION
Located in Köngäs we have the exclusive use of a charming, authentic Finnish house holding several bedrooms, a kitchen, a fireplace, a comfortable, cozy living area and of course, a traditional Finnish sauna. Hot, hearty home-cooked traditional Finnish meals will be prepared and served buffet style.
Hot tea and snacks will be readily available between meals.

THE SCHEDULE
We will begin each day with meditation, greeting the winter light with soft mindful movement. Once the sun is up, we will make the most of the precious daylight hours, heading out into the cold wilderness to play and move, engaging with Mother Nature. In the afternoon, we will have the opportunity to rest as dusk falls and we begin our evening session.
Each day holds its own surprise: a husky safari or snowshoeing (optional). Arctic Beach Sauna + avanto (hole in the ice for dip)

ABOUT CAMILLA:
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.
