The Vision and Mission of Ängsbacka
“Ängsbacka is a sacred focal point bringing people to the realization of whom and what we really are beyond all thoughts and concepts.
Ängsbacka is an internationally renowned source of inspiration; exploring how human beings together consciously can create the life they desire on earth, and demonstrating paths to sustainable development, wellbeing, and harmony.”
We realize and sustain our vision through;
● openhearted communication and sharing, based on honesty and acceptance
● practices that encourage self-awareness and personal growth
● cultivating a thriving and fruitful cooperation with the local community of Molkom
● involving our members in the growth and development of Ängsbacka
● consciously creating a life of presence, creativity and respect for all life on earth

Since 1997 thousands of people have been touched by the warm, open, loving atmosphere here during workshops, festivals and visits here at Ängsbacka. To many this place has become like a second home and a source of inspiration. Hundreds of people have lived and worked here for shorter or longer periods and contributed with time, money, work and above all their heart to create what we today can share and enjoy here .
About twenty people live here all year around. There are about fifty people who have moved to Molkom because of its vicinity to Ängsbacka. They want to have access to the rewarding meetings and experiences offered at Ängsbacka. The tranquillity and the beauty of the landscape are also contributing factors.

      Too commercial and too fake

    It was small, overpacked and overpriced. Felt like a lamley organised cash machine stuffed with new ageism envelope. Something felt cold and strange there, at it was not the right place for me to be vulnerable. Could be also cultural differences, the place feels intimately swedish. Teachings and offerings of content itself are very good. Healthy food. Thoughtful stuff and they provide emotional support.

Why Retreat?

We asked people why they go on retreat, here's what they said:

My last retreat at SMC was so inspiring and so relaxing. But i'd love to have more time there to spend at the Stupa, visit the Kami shrine, and generally interact with the beautiful enlightened society happening on that entire land. Brett

Retreat Guru's Vision

We believe human beings are innately wise, strong and kind. This wisdom, although not always experienced, is always present. Going on retreat is a beautiful way to reconnect to our basic sanity and health. Our aspiration at Retreat Guru is to inspire people to experience authentic retreats and reconnect with their innate wisdom, strength and kindness.
