About the workshop

The course will start at 10am sharp on both Saturday and Sunday, so please make sure to be there in time, preferably at 9.45 so you have plenty of time to go to the bathroom, say hello to the other participants, stretch your body, take a few deep breaths and land in the here and now. Then we will be ready, focused and fresh for a wonderful, inspiring and enriching day. We also highly recommend to bring notebook and pen in order to be able to make notes during the course. Bring comfortable clothing.

The facilities

The course will take place in a community building belonging to the local church. It is located in central Nexø, has a calm atmosphere and great facilities including bathrooms and a little kitchen that we are allowed to use, plus an extra room on the first floor that could be great if you need a calm moment to nurse your children during the lunch break or something like that.

Coffee break (fika!)

No great course without a yummy “fika” ( = the Swedish word for a little coffee/snack break)! Of course we will serve some “fika” which will include fruit and vegetable sticks, home made hummus, home made vegan cake, tea, coffee and the like.

Lunch break

We will have a lunch break between 12.00 and 13.00 (0-23.45 hours CET each day). You are welcome to spend it both in the building or elsewhere. And then we will start with new focus and energy again at 1 pm for another two more hours.

Can I bring my child?

We LOVE children. And we deeply believe that if you want to be the parent your child needs you to be, this also includes prioritizing your own well-being, some me-time and asking for/accepting help. Just as the oxygen masks on the airplane that you have to put on yourself first before helping your children. The course “My child and me” provides a space where you can reflect on your values, the needs of your child(ren), yourself and other families, your beliefs, habits and so much more. This is the “putting on the oxygen masks on yourself” – which is so essential. Therefore, we kindly ask you to find solutions for childcare for the duration of the course. We warmly encourage you to regard this as a brilliant investment, for yourself and your child(ren). And Bornholm is an amazing, family friendly island, while the course is designed in small, family friendly units of 4 x 2 hours at family friendly day times.

What about Nexø?

Nexø is located on the South-East coast of Bornholm, and our course location in the centre of the town. Three of the four supermarkets, the bakery, the harbour, two bus stops and some other shops are in 5 minute walking distance; the wonderful indoor playground “Værftet” ca. 10 minutes walk away. There is a big (and free) parking area at the back which you can reach from the street “Havnegade”.

How do I get to Bornholm?

The beautiful island Bornholm is situated in the Baltic Sea and can be reached by ferry from Sweden, Denmark, Germany and Poland, as well as by plane from Denmark. It is well known for its stunning and diverse nature from long white sandy beaches to spectacular cliffs, forests and so much more, for local crafts, picturesque villages, for sustainability and creative and friendly people. And despite being a popular holiday destination, it is extremely peaceful. And last but not least: We have a large and lovely unschooling/homeschooling community on the island with ca. 20 families which is rapidly growing at the moment.
