Deep Births
Four Winds summer camp 27.-30.7.2017
following The North Star

Where and what

We will gather in Sahala on the premises of "The Mansion of Experience and Friendship"

Our theme "Deep Births" invites us to explore our own and common roots, and the inner being. We will follow the mythological Finnish tradition along the route of The Northern Star towards the realms of "Paivola", the Light.

Our guests and performers include Charles Lawrence and Christiana Harle (USA/Finland) and Swami Atmananda Puri (India). Our travel guides on the route of The North Star will be Juha Kivinen and Tosha Einiö. Breathing and dancing will be provided by Anup Henrikki and Jaana Niva. We will step on a transformational personal journey.

Our camp is free of drugs and alcohol.
