LAND OF FAERY AND TALES
You are invited to Denmark, the land of Faery and Tales. Denmark is famous for its inventive imagination and cultural pioneers like N.F.S. Grundtvig (1783-1872) and Hans Christian Andersen (1805-1875) have left lasting marks on education, spirituality, art, children and fairy tales. Our journey in Denmark will take us to unique key places and combine teaching, fellowship, meditation and enjoyment with a special focus on the Ancient Nordic Wisdom, Living Imagination and the Huldrefolk (the Sidhe).
As a Nordic country Denmark has a special soul-keynote of "loving kindness" which is reflected in its landscape and nature. During the spiritual journey, and together with kindred spirits, you will experience the gentle and unique landscape and nature of Denmark when summer is blooming, and you will become part of the land of Faery and Tales yourself by contact with the inner side of nature and the deep wisdom of ages - intimately expressed in the Nordic way.
Our focus will be with a special openness towards a feminine revival of living wisdom and how we can help weaving wholeness in appreciating the Nordic Wisdom of Nerthus, Freya and the Mermaid Archetype. These portals to the greater reality are also inviting us to open ourselves to the reality of the Huldra People - the Hidden People - or the Sidhe. This will be a golden thread on our journey together.
Arrival in Copenhagen via Kastrup airport. Welcome and preparation for the days. Depending on the arrival of your airplane there might be a possibility to get an initial feeling of central Copenhagen, the capital of Denmark, but much more time will come later. Hotel for the night will be in Copenhagen.
WEDNESDAY 15. JULY: ELSINORE, KRONBORG CASTLE, RUDOLPH TEGNERS MUSEUM PARK
We will visit Elsinore (Helsingør) North of Copenhagen with its world famous Kronborg Castle, place of Shakespeares epic drama, Hamlet – the initiatory story telling for all human beings. From there we will let the bus drive us to Rudolph Tegners (1873-1950) landscape Sculpture Park and Museum, deeply inspiring sculptures of humans, gods and beings, uniquely placed in beautiful nature. The day will end bringing us to the hotel in Roskilde, central Zealand.
From Roskilde we will drive to Øm Passage Mound and we will enter the Mound and meditate at the place. Later we will go to the the nearby Stone Ship in Lejre and experience the landscape in the area of Ancient Lejre, place of great Royal importance in the Viking age and earlier. We will have teaching and meditation in nature. There will also be time to visit Lejre Museum in Old Lejre, before the bus goes back to the Hotel in Roskilde.
FRIDAY 17. JULY: MOLS NATIONAL PARK, POSKÆR DOLMEN STONE BARROW
We will take the bus and Mols Ferry to Jutland and visit Mols National Park. Here we will spend time in nature. We will walk in the National Park and experience its landscape temple and its powerpoints. From there we will visit Poskær Dolmen Stone Barrow, a place with a living connection to the Sidhe (the Huldre People). We will have time for an enjoyable break in Knebelhus at Thorup Gjestgiveri (Thorup Guesthouse) before we return with bus and ferry to the hotel in Roskilde.
SATURDAY 18. JULY: ROSKILDE CATHEDRAL, NORDIC WISDOM
In Roskilde we will visit its famous Cathedral, the most important church in Denmark and a UNESCO World Heritage Site due to its unique architecture and its role as main burial site for Danish Monarchs since the 15th century. Following this we will have teaching about the Ancient Nordic Wisdom as a guide to our own inner nature. There will be a special focus on the Upper, Middle and Lower worlds and the role of the Gods and Goddesses as powers within and around us. The rest of the day is open to explore Roskilde, its harbor and Viking ships.
The day will be spent in the Lejre area, beginning with a walk to the mythical Herthadal in Ledreborg Forest, associated with the Divine Feminine, the fertility Goddess Nerthus, and possibly the mother of Goddess Freya and the feminine dísir. This opens the door to ancient female-shamanic connections to the Huldrefolk or the Sidhe. Later in the day we will return to Sussie’s and Søren’s Home in Kisserup close by, and there will be a specially arranged Nordic Dinner, before the bus brings all to the hotel in Roskilde.
