Hello Friends!

It’s me, the Sun Elf 🧚‍♀️! I want you to come and join me and my fellow creatures to solve the Midsummer mystery at Ängsbacka.

We have a challenge and need to be as many as possible to do this, the more the merrier! With lots of play, magic and creativity on the lightest day of the year, we believe we can release the fear that holds our dear forest in a grip.

Come along for the joy, unity and fun – together we shine our light for a bright Earth! See you at Midsummer at Ängsbacka!

Children & Youth

Our intention is to create a magic weekend for the whole family. There will be plenty of time to hang out with each other and play together. There will be workshops for families to join and some suitable for both youths and adults. Also, the opening/closing and morning meetings will be for all ages and we really hope you will bring your children there to sing and dance together.

On a central spot in our beautiful garden you will find the children’s tent where there will be lots of opportunities for creativity and having fun together.



Please note we do not have child care for children under the age of 4.
The little ones are very welcome accompanied by an adult.

During certain times on Friday and Saturday, there will be childcare for all children form the age of 4 and up, to play, sing and try out different activities. There will be a great team of workshop leaders and volunteers taking good care of our beautiful children. During these hours parents are given the opportunity to attend workshops on their own.

Opening hours of childrens tent:

Thur 15.30-18.30
Friday 10.30-13.00

"To listen to and surrender to my inner voice and the way that life unfolds itself, has become a blessing that guides me through my life."

BIOGRAPHY *Required:

Pernillas first meeting with the unique gong vibrations was a deep spiritual experience. Her feeling after the relaxation was that "everything was different", a feeling of being new in this world. A deep experience of peace, calmness and relaxation. Another place to act from. At that moment she decided to learn how to play that fantastic instrument. It was the start of a transformational process that came to change her entire life and her way of living it.


The vibrations of the Gong affect the body and the brain at the cellular levels. It cleanses and balance the chakra system. Dare to let go of control with the sound of the Gong, dare to stand open connected to the manifesting flow.

Words and characters came to life
Stories that wanted to be told

to explore the unknown depth
of what it is to be
or not to be

This is us
meeting you
to become the we
In the weaving of a new world
