Midnight Sun Retreat
24 – 28 June 2022
Join us on this Intensive Personal Transformation Retreat in Tromsø, North-Norway. Into the land of the Sami, Europe’s official last Indigenous tribe. During the Midnight Sun for an in-depth shift, not only in mind & paradigm but most of all in heart and beeing while living in Lavvu’s (Sami tipi tents) emerged in nature.
This transformative retreat will be guided 24/7 by both founders of Natureconomy: Marieke Akgul, Interspecies Communicator & Jungle Svonni, Sami Shaman.
Together they will share teachings, healings, Sami culture, provide guidance and Yoik to give you an unforgettable holistic Northern Experience. Reconnecting you with Nature, the Indigenous way.
Ancient Language of Creation
Friday 24 June 2022
Today we will (re) introduce you to the basics of ‘interspecies Communication’ and mis-communication in our modern world. Connecting on that level is something we all have the ability too, we simply just need to be remembered how to do it. Marieke will personally teach you how to interact with nature telepathically and help you to recieve messages as they never stopped communicating with us. We just forgot how to recieve them.
Jungle will monitor everyone carefully and will support this entire period with personal healings for those who experience blockages or need healing. He will also guide us on our daily nature walks. Helping us ‘read’ the local nature and explain what we encounter now that its 24/7 light.
Each day a shamanic journey will be given. Including teachings on ways how to protect and ground yourself.
Deepen your connection
Saturday 25 June 2022
To deepen your relationship with nature, you need to deepen the relationship with yourself first. Understanding what you came here to do. Understanding where you came from, your indigenous roots. Understanding how you are connected to nature so you can become fully part of nature again.
Today we will look deeper into that: Understanding your lifepurpose and all your relations. And ofcourse we will go into nature as this is not only the time of the Midnight sun but also the time of the waterfalls. Feel how everything flows, in their own rythm and connect with Nature on a deeper level.
Jungle will support again with private healings if needed and tonight he will share more about the Sami, Sapmi, indigenous living, the reindeer and his personal life story.
Sunday 26 June 2022
‘Utesitting’ is an ancient local tradition, similar to a vision quest. Together we will go into the arctic nature where we will select together the spot that resonates with you. Here you will be left on your own to reflect and find anwsers on personal questions, major issues, or life’s big questions.
You will be given the space of the whole day to meditate & connect with your inner wisdom which leads to a higher consciousness through contact with nature. To find your way back to your natural state of beeing one. As the midnight sun helps you not to be distracted by time.
It makes no difference whether you face large or small issues, or if you’re going through large or small processes regarding changes in life, utesitting was and is, a way to clarify your intention and co-create with nature.
Jungle and Marieke will hold space for you during this process.
Healing our lines
Monday 27 June 2022
We will start with an introduction into Sami Shamanism followed by a Decolonisation Ceremony as healing is today’s theme.
We will look into what is keeping us from stepping fully in our lifepurpose, write our ho’opono pono’s and take part in a water ceremony during our daily nature walks. Become the water, become the waterfall, harmonize with its rythm, harmonize with the water that flows through you.
Feel how nature supports you and ‘has your back’ while you heal and become more and more receptive of even the tiniest little messages. Be amazed by the unique insights nature in all her aspects give you and feel the connection through Telepathy and Heart, the way of our ancestors and hear the unique ‘song’ of Nature.
Jungle will close today’s teachings with an unique Shamanic Journey based on Yoik. The vocal technique of the Sami, which is very rare to hear outside of Sapmi, the land of the Sami.
Tuesday 28 June 2022
For the last time this week we will go on our daily nature walks. Asking for wisdom & advise to take home with us regarding the land, the waters, the animals, the trees, ourselves etc. Whatever is relevant and wants to be shared. Leaving Nature more beautiful then how we found it.
Bringing home a renewed connection with our own history, our ancestors, our own nature, inside and outside ourselves. Fully aware how we can co-create with Nature on a daily basis, supported by our own team of helpers both in the physical as in the non-physical worlds as met during the daily shamanic journeys.
We will complete with a fire ceremony. Time to release our ho’opono pono’s in the flames. time to release what needs to be released in order for you to live in your full strength, reconnected with your own indigenous side.
good to know
There is limited space available for maximum 10 people.
Are not included as many people come from different places all over the world. To give an indication. Amsterdam or Düsseldorf has one way tickets starting from € 130,-.
Arrival & Departure Airport: Tromso Airport
We advise to book a flexible ticket due to the uncertainty of COVID-19 and the valid cancellations policy. (see below)
From the airport, there goes a direct busline, bus 420 Kvaloya, to us. It will take approx 1 hour and 20 minutes. We will pick you up from the bus stop and bring you to our camp approx 0,6 km. walking up the mountain.
As our camp is located approx 0,6 km up on a mountain without roads, it is wise to pack light and use a backpack. Dragging up a 23 kilo suitcase in deep snow is absolutely not advisable 🙂
We can always advise on whatever you want to bring with you, to keep your luggage as light and usable as possible.
Its our intention to keep this experience as authentic as possible according to the ways of the ancestors connected to the land. This means that we will keep our impact on nature as small as possible and experience as much as possible of the Sami Nomadic lifestyle as they would duringing a semi-permanent camp.
This means we will live in community in Lavvu’s (Sami tipi tent), cook together & eat in Lavvu’s, recieve the teachings there and out in nature. Even sleep together as family in the Lavvu. Depending on groupsize and structure (families, couples, singles, friends etc) the definite lay out will be made. but privacy is something that will not be found in the lavvu but outside in Nature, just like in the old days.
You will sleep in a sleepingbag (provided) on reindeerskins (provided) with max 5 others per Lavvu.
Tucked away in Nature up a mountain in Kvaløya, Tromsø.
All meals and beverages during the meals are included. Any other are for your own cost.
If you have allergies, if you are vegan, vegetarian or have food intollarances, please let us know while booking.
As each group is different, and we get to know you a little bit towards and during the actual trip, we adjust organically our teachings to your needs and wishes as much as possible. A family with children might have a different reason to participate and hope to experience then an individual. So eventhough its a group experience there is much space for personal & individual growth and reflection.
Total costs for this transforming trip: € 1.450,- incl all accommodations, meals, teachings, private healings & intensive 24-hour guidance and all under the Midnight Sun.
For this you get the Ultimate Once-in-a-lifetime experience which will change your life for sure and send you home with a whole new world view and an amazing skillset which will benefit you for the rest of your life.
You will be able to reconnect with Nature on a whole different level and have not only a huge paradigm shift but mainly a heart shift.
If you like you can pay in 4 terms in your own pace as long as the last payment has been done before 15 december 2022.
Children older than 10 years old are more than welcome to participate together with a parent. In general the teachings will be given in English. Basic English is therefore ideal but partly additional translations in Dutch, Sami, Norwegian, Swedish or Spanish can be provided.
The price for children is equal to the adult price as we see children as equals, as young adults who deserve just as much attention and teachings, perhaps even more 🙂
In general the spoken language will be English as this is an International Event. The level of English is very basic and there is always room for extra explanation in for instance Dutch, Norwegian, German or Sami. If the entire group is Dutch, Marieke will teach her part in Dutch.
Of course we will organize this trip according to the Covid-19 rules in Sapmi valid at that time. Additional we will inform you about this in a later stage.
