The central theme of this trip is an exploration of the Kalevala, the most ancient and significant work of the Finnish culture, the ancestral epic story of the Finns that is filled with shamanic wisdom and profound cosmic mysteries.
Each day, we shall explore a deeper aspect of the secret, alchemical meaning of the Kalevala. A hermetical text that has attracted the attention of scholars from around the world, it holds great significance for the crossroads humanity is now reaching. We can all benefit from the consciousness hidden in its pages.
During these 12 days, we shall stay in 3 or 4-star hotels - including Boutique Hotels, Manor Houses, a Spa Resort and even a Monastery! We will travel by luxury bus, tramway and ferry boat. From pre-historic rock paintings to modern architecture, we shall explore various aspects of the spiritual history of Finland, as well as its stunning, pristine nature, its islands, forests, lakes, and rivers. We shall further our quest in monasteries, ancient wooden churches and traditional villages, and perform ceremonies among birch trees and ancient boulders, overlooking the sparkling Baltic Sea.
