  7. 7. The festivalsThere will be a full festival summer at Ängsbacka during June, July and August 2011, filledwith a diversity of workshops to spice up our lives and remind us of our true longings anddirections. The festivals at Ängsbacka attract thousands of people each year, from all aroundthe world, who meet and inspire each other to celebrate life, grow in awareness, connect toour life intentions, relax together and create the world we long for!The campsTo share even more time, co-creation and togetherness at Ängsbacka, we have the splen-did opportunity to join the volunteer camps. You are invited to take part in the preparationof the festivals and feeling how the atmosphere and energy builds up day by day. Yourpresence will add significantly!Making it happenÄngsbacka’s festivals could not happen if it wasn’t for the incredible contribution froma large number of volunteers that work to build the festivals together with our all-year-around staff. The volunteer camp starts in early June and goes on until mid August. It is atime of much fun, friendship, community, playfulness, new experiences - and work!Volunteer workAs a volunteer you work in a work team in a specific area according to your group sched-ule, planned by your group coordinator. You join volunteer gatherings, work shifts andsharings and spend the rest of your time experiencing the festival program, chilling withfriends and letting yourself be engulfed in the skies, forests and lakes surrounding Ängs-backa. You work 30 hours per week, so you have some time to participate in other activi-ties, such as meditations, yoga, rest, open stage and a large variety of workshops. Youdedicate your time and commitment, pay parts of the basic expenses for food and ac-commodation, and receive access to all the festival and camp workshops, concerts etc,splendid vegetarian buffet, housing, coaching, body work – and the time of your life!Many people say volunteering during the summer is the best festival of them all!Work groupsWhich work group you will work in we decide together before your arrival. We wish for youto be in a work area where the practical needs and your energy, passion and experiencesynchronizes. See list of work groups below and in the application form.You will work in your work area and also do general work outside of the group from timeto time, such as raising tents, painting, building, kitchen work etc. Be prepared for anything.Flexibility is necessary to support the synergy organized to build our festivals together.Work group volunteer coordinatorsEvery work group has a coordinator. Every group also has practical support from a practicalwork leader. The group coordinator makes sure the sharing, the group dynamics and theinformation flow between festival organizers and the volunteers works well. If you have anyquestion about anything, the first thing to do is always: Talk to your group coordinator!
  8. 8. Time periods & payment - to step into commitmentTo keep the energy and work routines up and running we ask you to come for whole camp peri-ods. It creates a safe and lovely ground for all involved, instead of the restlessness of wonderingwhen we want to come and go, and the impractical reality of having people coming and going inthe work groups. Still we want to welcome all of you and if your dedication is on, but some daysare impossible, let us know why that is and we can make a plan. Typically, Ängsbacka wants 5days notice if you cannot work as planned, except for emergencies. If you leave abruptly withoutcommunicating with the volunteer coordinators, there is a 150 SEK/day fee to compensate for thedays you broke the agreement. If you have any special needs or need to be away, welcome toplan it with your group coordinator and Pyret as much in advance as possible!How we do itMindful work rather than Mindless meditationSpirituality + Community + Working meditation = Synergy Magic ManifestingTo create the Ängsbacka festivals we have a fantastic staff- and coordinator crew who plan thesite practicalities, manifest and make the plans come true. To make it happen we all get intointense days combining practical work, spiritual workshops and meeting friends – and we expe-rience how these three elements can synchronize and enhance each other! We do our best toensure that the work is not overly heavy and that overtime does not occur but we ask you to beflexible about the intensity coming alive to make it all happen!Below is a description of Ängsbacka, the Working Meditation and the Sharing, to get a better ideaof what Ängsbacka is and the qualities and tools we use. We are clarifying the Ängsbacka wayof supporting our experiences: how the sharing, coaching, workshops and meditations createa structure, in which we can connect to our core, feel everything and meet whatever is moving,without losing our energy in shutdown, distraction or conflict – instead fall into our inherent naturallonging to interact lovingly with each other.About ÄngsbackaThe vision of Ängbacka is to be one of Europe’s leading meeting places for people who wish togrow in consciousness and live with an open heart. Ängsbacka has various courses, retreats andfestivals all-year-round, as well as a leadership training for the coordinators leading the volunteerwork groups during the summer: Ängsbacka Leadership Intensive. The Ängsbacka festival sum-mer is expanding every year. The first and still the biggest festival is the No Mind festival.Ängsbacka is owned by an association in which anyone can become a member. Every year themembers meet for a summit to brainstorm about new ideas, elect persons to the board of the as-sociation and set the aim for the next year. Ängsbacka is a dynamic place, where we can come asvolunteers all-year-round to find new expressions of our longing to manifest our projects, our cre-ativity and truth. Ängsbacka invites new people continuously, to be part in creating this place!”When you are inspired by some great purpose, some extraordinary project, all yourthoughts break their bonds, your mind transcends limitations, your consciousexpands in every direction, and you find yourself in a new, great and wonderful world”
  9. 9. LanguageWe speak some Swedish at Ängsbacka, but meetings and workshops are held in English.What ever language you speak, you are welcome!“Working Meditation” at ÄngsbackaAs a volunteer, you contribute by “working meditation”, a form of karma yoga. It is an oppor-tunity for us to fall into life, to create the things we love, to serve from our heart, to challengeourselves to combine relaxation, fun, simplicity and clarity, with the intensity and efficiency in ourwork. We work to create a place for people to meet and to see how our synergy comes sponta-neously as we remind each other to connect to the clarity always present within.The volunteers are the base for the festivals and the year-round space at Ängsbacka. As avolunteer you take part in preparing for the festival and feeling how the atmosphere and energybuilds up day by day. You are invited to create a festival - a celebration of life, of meditation, offriendships and of insights. The festivals and camps are great times for connecting and having agood time together.The working hours at Ängsbacka are referred to as “working meditation” to remind us that as weare beautifying the workshop areas, preparing healthy food or turning the compost piles we maystay mindful of our conscious breathing and the activity that we are doing -and let it connect usto life. Normally we are taught that in order to succeed, we have to struggle. Somehow though,the more we struggle the more tense we can become. The alternative approach we would like tooffer is to remind us that in order to give the best to each moment, and to receive the most fromeach moment, we need to be present. And to be present, we need to be relaxed. As the storyby Joseph Campbell once told: Three men are working together on the same job. An observerasks:“What are you doing?” The first answers “I am working.” The second answers “I am laying bricks.” The thirdanswers “I am building a cathedral”.Its not so much about what we do, but how we do it. That can change the happening from just“work” to an opportunity to “live” - to see how any experience in life, whether “at work” or “atplay” can be an opportunity to experience, transform and expand!“Sharing & Meditation” at ÄngsbackaSharing and meditation are two basic ingredients at Ängsbacka. The festival experience is oftenintense and during work we need to focus and give a lot to the task at hand. Meditation is oneway to gather yourself to find your inner direction, relaxation, intention and energy source. Thereare meditation opportunities such as ‘the silent sitting’ every day at Ängsbacka. All workinggroups also have “Sharing” once every day. Sharing is a key element in the Ängsbacka way oflife and gives everyone the opportunity to share their emotions and reflections. Sharing givesclarity and increases cohesion between all of us who are here. Sharing gives you the opportu-nity to sit in a circle with your group and share “where you are right now”, to connect in a placewhere nobody needs to be or do anything , to open up, come close to each other in a genuineway, and receive what you need to feel good.“If we base our communication in honesty and listening, we will be able to handleany situation in a creative way.”

Each member of the Ängsbacka community, and all staff employed at Ängs-backa are asked to sign this document, showing their willingness to follow these guidelinesto the best of their ability.1. Service – I aspire to serve others, our planet and its inhabitants. I recognize that I must alsoserve myself in order to practice this effectively.2. Personal Growth - I strive toward becoming more conscious of my personal attitudes andbehaviour patterns and I am willing to change those which are harmful to myself and others.3. Reflection - I recognize that what I see outside myself—any criticism irritation or apprecia-tion—may also be reflections of what is inside me. I am willing to look at these within myselfbefore reflecting them onto others.4. Responsibility - I take responsibility for my actions, my mistakes and for any spiritual, envi-ronmental and human effects these might have. I am willing to listen to constructive criticismand to offer constructive feed-back to others in a caring and appropriate fashion. I am willingto take action to resolve conflicts and to make amends when my actions have hurt others.5. Respect – I wholeheartedly commit to respect other people; their differences, their views,origins, backgrounds, issues and their property. I will show respect and care for the environ-ment, striving to minimize my negative impact. I agree to respect communal areas and otherpeople’s working areas, to leave beauty and order around me.
  19. 19. 6. Non-violence - I will not forcefully inflict my attitudes or desires (including sexual) on oth-ers. I agree to step in and stop, or at least say that I would like stopped, actions (includingmanipulation or intimidation) that I feel may be abusive to myself or others in the community.7. Communication - I will be clear and honest in my communication and open-hearted in mylistening. In public and in private I will not speak in a way that maligns or demeans others andmyself. I will talk to people rather than about them.8. Resolution – I agree to make every effort to resolve disputes. At any time in a dispute I maycall for an advocate, friend, independent observer or mediator to be present.9. Co-operation - I recognise that I live in a community and that it functions only through myco-operation and my good communication. I agree to communicate my decisions clearly tothose who may be affected and to consider their views carefully and respectfully. I recognizethat others may make decisions which affect me and I agree to respect the care, integrity andwisdom that they have put into their decision-making process.10. Agreements - I commit to keeping agreements I have made and not to break or try toevade any laws, rules, or guidelines; to have honest dealings with all bodies and to pay allcharges and dues owing.11. Spiritual Practice - I will take an active part in the spiritual practice of the community,(such as meditations, morning meetings, sharing, forum, etc.) and will in my daily work striveto work for the greatest good.12. Support – I am willing to strive toward upholding and following the above guidelines in mylife and work. I acknowledge that this asks for considerable effort and personal transforma-tion. Bearing this in mind I will ask for support and help from others when I need such and Iremain open to be approached by others who may be in need of support.I am aware that we are all doing our best and that we may stumble many times along the way.I therefore agree to adopt an attitude of loving acceptance and understanding toward bothmyself and my fellow community members, to remain humble and to avoid judging myselfand others.Together we strive to uphold these guidelines and together we celebrate both ourdifficulties and our success!
