Summer weeks 2018 on Meløya island

 

 

The midnight sun, a fundamental spiritual connection to nature which affects the body and the mind. 

Night was coming on again; the sun just dipped into the sea and rose again, red, refreshed, as if it had been down to drink. I could feel more strangely on those nights than anyone would believe …” Knut Hamsuns Pan (1894):

A spirit, having no connection to the space-time limitations of matter at all, is everywhere and nowhere all at the same time. Twenty-four/ seven light reminds beings that the “spiritual sun” is where one needs to turn to awaken and grow their innate spiritual faculties, simultaneously pointing out the detachment of societal rhythms from natural rhythms. In ancient Norway, the phenomenon was nonsensical, first believed to be brought by magical powers

 

 

Meløya, an untouched island above the polar circle

Meløy has been sparsely inhabited for many centuries and contains the second largest glacier in Norway, Svartisen as well as evidence from the Viking age.  It is a special place as Meloya means “flour,” describing the fine sand of the lower parts of the island. This preserved and untouched natural space is the perfect venue for pure spiritual exploration and connection.

An overview: 

Dates: July 3 to July 15, 2018

Venue: The island of Meløya, Nordland coast. Arrival is at Bodø (airport and train station), from where a speedboat brings us to the island. Likewise, departure is from Bodø.

Tuesday, July 3 is arrival day. You come whenever you can, in the evening we gather on the Island.

We close on Saturday, July 14 with a goodbye party in the evening, then on Sunday 15 morning, we wrap up, clean the house and depart – or rest. You are free to stay until Monday (where there are much better bus and boat connections, and much cheaper plane tickets). Those of us who stay for the trip to Lofoten, will depart on Monday morning, too.

Be aware that you have to be in Bodø (airport and train station) by 2 PM in the afternoon in order to catch the last connecting bus or boat southward towards the island. If you cannot find a flight to Oslo that is early enough to catch a connecting flight to Bodø, we advise you to come to Oslo a day earlier and stay with us Vinterbro for one night.
