Folk Healer’s Gathering

11.7.2016 – 17.7.2016

Kalevala, mythology, philosophy:

for a better understanding of nature

Traditional healers meet their customers on the beautiful grounds of Kuusamo.
The extensive programme offers information, skill and care for everyone interested in traditional methods of treatment.
The know-how folk healers possess has been passed from one family to another, from one spirit to another. It has existed as long as human beings have existed. The folk healers of today maintain this living tradition founded on the wisdom of our ancestors, the conviction that everything originates in nature.

NATURE TRAIL – INTRODUCTION INTO THE SECRETS OF NATURE

On the nature trail we explore energies found in nature and visit places of empowerment. We also measure natural energies and carry out exercises of mindfulness.

WILD HERBS

Introduction into the collection and use of wild herbs, followed by an excursion to the nearby forest and fields.

TRADITIONAL HEALING SEMINAR

Introductions and lectures on nature and Finnish traditional healing practices.

SAUNA

Exploring the world of Finnish sauna. The foundation of Finnish folk healing is in the healing and unifying power of nature. The integral elements of nature – stopping, silence and listening – are also present in the ancient tradition of sauna bathing. Natural plants are used for gentle whisking that relaxes the mind and the body and helps to maintain spiritual balance.
