Lin Holmquist

Tantra, Energywork, Yoni & Lingam Massage

The works needs love right now - lets start the #loverevolution together!


Lin started her spiritual journey early in life. With her home deep in the swedish forests it was natural for her to find the shamanistic path and to learn how to listen to the animated life in the wilderness and woods. After finding a lot of healing in yoga, her journey turned to India where she studied yoga, therapy and tantra with scholars, nuns and mystics for a few years.

The journey of yoga brought her into deep contact with the science of the body, breath and movement but it was not until she found the practice of tantra that she really found her deep truth.

Tantra led to a powerful awakening of kundalini. A journey that made her change her view on life from doing to being. From performing to receiving. After kundalini awoken her, her path has been the path of her true hearts calling.

Lin now works worldwide with big events like the tantra festival at Ängsbacka, deep trainings, smaller workshops and individual healing sessions.

For practical reasons we can´t meet needs from other allergies or diets during festivals.



Ängsbacka has a policy of zero tolerance for illicit drug and alcohol. We dont serve alcohol, and it is not allowed to drink or to be under influence of alcohol or other subtstances when you are at Ängsbacka.

If you are found under the influence, we will ask you to leave immediately.



♦ An extra towel for the sauna.

 Earplugs if you are noise-sensitive or prefer to sleep early – the sound can sometimes be loud in the festival area.

♦  A water bottle and maybe a take away mug for coffee and tea.



The Cafe is a cozy meeting place for hang-out, new friendships and deep conversation. You can buy coffee, tea, golden milk, yummy cakes, drinks, chocolate, sweets and more:)


Here you will find health products and organic body care, relaxing music, books, different clothes, organic incense, unique jewelry, yoga mats and more.



♦  Money – For cash withdrawals, there is a vending machine (ATM) at the grocery store in Molkom about 1.5 miles from Ängsbacka. They also offer cashback service on purchases done with a Swedish bank card.

♦  Shopping – Extra food items, toiletries and other everyday items can be found in Coop Molkom grocery store. 

♦  Walking – A good idea is to bring coarser walking shoes for trails around Ängsbacka and comfortable indoor shoes/slippers.

♦  Sauna – We have a large wood-fire Sauna where you have the possibility to relax in the company of new and old friends. 



A welcome letter with more detailed information about the festival will be sent out to all participants.

Du kan antingen direktbetala on-line med kontokort eller använda banköverföring.

Vi ser gärna att du betalar med banköverföring eftersom det minskar de transfereringskostnader som vi betalar vid kortbetalning.

Medan du bokar kommer att du att få vidare instruktioner. Efter att du bokat din biljett kommer du att få en bekräftelse via e-post.

Om du har problem med att betala med kort (till exempel när du köper biljetter till en hel familj), var god kontakta oss så skickar vi dig en manuell länk för betalning.


1) Kortbetalning

Betala on-line med valfritt betalkort/kontokort.

  • Om avbokning sker fram till en månad före evenemanget börjar tar vi ut en avbokningsavgift på 350 kr per person. För barn och ungdom (upp till 18 år) är avbokningsavgiften hälften, dvs 175 kr/barn. Därefter, och fram till evenemangets start, är avbokningsavgiften 15 % av bokningens totala värde. Maxbeloppet vi behåller per person/bokning är 900 kr.
  • OBSERVERA att det kan ta upp till en månad innan du har det återbetalade beloppet på ditt konto.
  • Vid avbokning under de två sista veckorna före evenemangets start, behövs komplettering med ett läkarintyg för att återbetalning ska ske. Ingen återbetalning sker om du avbokar efter att evenemanget har startat.
  • Om Ängsbacka ställer in evenemanget så återbetalas hela beloppet.
