Alive & Becoming

Möllan Retreat

7 - 11 augusti, 2024

Alive & Becoming Danceretreat 2024

A warm welcome to this summerretreat at beautiful Möllan, surrounded by lovely nature in Småland, south of Sweden. Last summers 5 day retreat was just amazing, as one of the dancers said: ” I have been to many danceretreats, but I have never ever said magic as much as here” . I Look SOOO much forward to these days!

During these five days we will explore our Aliveness. We will let us feel our humanness and the precious gift to be alive & walk on this earth. To let us be touched by movement, nature, hearts and the beauty that surrounds us and feel what`s alive inside and move with our inner landscape.
We will receive ourselves and eachother, breath by breath, natural as we unfold, remember and discover. We will let us sense the ways we wanna grow and let’s curiously and with deep listening move to where we wanna be and what we wanna become. And much much more that will be in the flow!

During these days we will nourish ourselves with our movement sessions, sharings, silence, rest and nature. We will invite contact with nature and some of the dances will take place in nature with silent disco headphones. That is a very special thing I love to share!

We dance mornings and evenings. In the afternoons you have free time to spend as you wish. Möllan is just by a lovely lake, there are kayaks and SUP-boards to borrow, as well as a sauna. You might wanna go on a roadtrip to a place nearby to explore? Or just rest in a hamaca, go for a walk or read a book.

Every day you will be served three meals with vegetarian food.

This retreat is all about freedom – freedom to move, freedom to express, and freedom to be you. You are welcome regardless whether you are new to this movement practice or have danced for a long time. Welcome as you are!

“You just have to determine to settle for nothing less than being FULLY ALIVE, to show up, be who you are, and share your gifts.”

Dance is for me an elixir of life! For me, dance is a fantastic way to get in touch with myself and to feel my inner self, my energy and essence. I’ve always loved to dance, but when I found free dance and 5 rhythms, that’s where I found home. This was almost 20 years ago and since then dance has been a big part of my life. Since 8 years ago I have been sharing my own dance: Body & Soul Movement. I am a trained Body Movement Coach and am currently in the 5 rhythms training. I love to share my passion for the dance.
My dancespace is imbued with trust in the wisdom, power and healing of dance and movement.
