Ask Retraite - De Witte Zwaluw

Spiritual Camping

Camping in the heart of Finnish nature. With a spiritual touch if desired, or completely free into nature.

Our Mission

We are committed to using our extensive knowledge to guide you on an organic journey back to your core. We will work with you to explore and address any blockages or pain points you may be experiencing. Our retreats are designed to go deep, and we will support you every step of the way while you make your own personal journey.

In addition to our “back to your nature” retreats, we also offer retreats for women, men, and couples. We also offer silent retreats and retreats that focus on learning to heal with nature. Our retreats incorporate a variety of modalities, including meditation, shamanic visualizations, hypnotherapy, regression therapy, energetic therapy, and systemic work.

Returning to nature means:

  • Outdoor showers
  • Composting toilet
  • Living off the land

We understand that when you’re working hard on yourself, it’s important to get a good night’s sleep and eat well. That’s why we provide you with a comfortable camp bed, all meals, and bed linens and towels.

We also offer small-scale (spiritual) camping. This is another opportunity to connect with your core and return to nature.
