Reconnect to (your) indigenous nature – lavvu edition
13 – 19 December 2022
Join us on this Personal Transformation Retreat in Tromsø, North-Norway. Into the land of the Sami, Europe’s official last Indigenous tribe. Home of the Magical Northern Lights 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
Tuesday 13 December 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 for instance from the animals again, 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. He will help us learn their way of moving around in nature on ski’s. The most fitting transport to emerge yourself here in nature. No previous experience needed but it will make the nature walks on ski’s easier.
Each day a shamanic journey will be given. Including teachings on ways how to protect and ground yourself.

Tromso is known for its Arctic wildlife, in co-exsistance with the indigenous Sami and modern society. An area where Moose and Reindeer can just wonder by the roads. Where Sea Eagles, Golden Eagles and ravens roam freely and in the many Fjords various whales and orcas can be seen at the coastline. Where nature is still wild, inviting and nurturing.
Today we will meet, feed & connect with the Reindeer at the ‘Tromso Lapland’ and learn more about the Sami Culture. Learn the importance of the reindeer for the Sami and how they live and work together. See the shamanic meaning of their running in a spiral and listen to their special teachings of beeing one.
Like every evening we hope to capture the Northern Lights in all its glory. A spectacular experience you will always remember but perhaps even beneficial to the mind, body & soul too?
Deepen your connection
Thursday 15 December 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 together on ski’s in between teachings to practice, explore and connect with Nature on that 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.
Friday 16 December 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.
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
Saturday 17 December 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 pouring ceremony during our daily nature explorations to help the natural flow of all things return and make it our rythm again.
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.
Messages from other Realms
Sunday 18 December 2022
Stepping on board of the Brim Explorer to meet the orca’s & whales. Get a unique perspective on the majestic humpback and killer whales as they feed in the herring-rich fjords of the Arctic, the silent electric ship allows us to get close without disturbing them or causing sound polution, respecting the hunt of these amazing mamals.
Connect with them energetically and learn from them what they know of the Universe, other realms and dimensions. You will be amazed by their stories and world view. All the big questions you have about life, they can help you answer.
Back in Tromso we will go to an unique (dressed) sauna located in an old fisher ship. To help cleanse and prepare for the new to come in.
Monday 19 December 2022
For the last time this week we will go on our daily nature tours on ski’s. Connecting & reading nature and the animal tracks around us. Leaving Nature more beautiful then how we found it.
Bringing home a renewed connection with our own history, our ancestors. 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

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.

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: € 2.000,- incl all excursions, accommodations, local transportations, meals, teachings, private healings & 24-hour guidance and all under the Northern Lights.
