WHAT SHOULD I BRING WITH ME?
Weather in Finland can be unpredictable during summer. It should be mild and warm with temperatures of around +10-22C, and a slight chance of rain. The night is extremely short during the retreat because we’re located so far north. The retreat will take place mostly outdoors; please wear comfortable clothes. We will ask international participants to email a scanned copy of their passports prior to the retreat. This procedure is required by two of our main locations; the garrisons of Dragsvik and Santahamina.
We will spend quite a bit of time in silent meditation. Therefore we require everyone to bring something to sit on comfortably, like a light folding stool, inflatable cushion, or piece of camping mat. Some people find sitting on a small and cheap inflatable neck pillow comfortable.
Good walking shoes. We walk a great deal.
Sun protection like sunglasses, sunscreen, hat etc.
Passport or an official Photo ID.
Rain Poncho for rain. Mandatory!
Light folding stool, inflatable cushion, inflatable neck pillow, piece of camping mat to sit on.
