About.

Ängsbacka is a course and festival centre in northern Europe, located in the beautiful deep forests of Värmland in Sweden, halfway between Stockholm and Oslo. We offer courses and festivals for creative and playful people who want to live a more conscious life, live from the heart and care for our planet.

Our vision is to be a leading meeting point for sustainable human development, and a source of inspiration for social, personal and global well being, bringing people to the realization of whom and what we really are beyond thoughts and concepts.

Since 1997 thousands of people have been touched by the warm, open, loving atmosphere during workshops, festivals and volunteer experiences here at Ängsbacka. Hundreds of people have lived and worked here over the past 20 years, bringing their gifts and contributing to the unique Ängsbacka magic. 

The dynamic volunteer team at Ängsbacka is a place where you can dive into an international, community experience rich in learning and personal development. Our aim is to provide the opportunity to develop personal, interpersonal and practical skills that support a more sustainable way of living, socially, culturally, economically and ecologically.

Our volunteers are in a unique position to access and contribute to a daily program of activities that support growth and development. The day begins with the possibility for yoga or meditation practice, and continues in the afternoon and evening with a variety of items such as dance, music, men’s and women’s circles, tantric and shamanic practices, massage, open stage and many other creative and connecting forms.

As
a volunteer you are here not only to serve your own personal development, but also the development of the many hundreds of participants who join our courses and trainings throughout the year. Service to the course participants means giving the gift of providing a warm, safe, clean and nourishing environment through our work as kitchen and housekeeping volunteers, and providing a held, nurturing and respectful space within which they can relax and unfold.
