Games and babysitting will be provided parallel to the program. No part of the schedule is mandatory and the participants can freely and spontaneously choose between the schedule for adults, kids activities, private sessions with counsellors/therapists or free time.
Each therapist will lead 2-3 group sessions with hands-on activities, teaching you methods to increase harmony in your family. In addition you can approach them during the workshop and find out possibilities for private counselling during and/or after the family retreat. All of them offer a free try out session and are also available over video call after the retreat.

Gestalt” means whole and based on theory that people need to be viewed as a whole (mind, body, and soul) and that we understand ourselves best when viewing in the present.

During the last 40 years, Vigdis has researched and explored from many different angles the power of the mind and what prevents us living the life we really want to live. The purpose and goal of her course series is to provide a way for you to work yourself through all the obstacles in your life right now and get in touch with who you really are deep inside. Vigdis Parkins retired at the end of January 2022 from her professional work in accounting and marketing but will keep her course and seminar business going.
The impact of imagination on your life.
Does the life you are living resemble who you really are? Ask yourself; Do I live my life just responding to circumstances or do I make conscious plans and choices. This presentation teaches you about the role imagination plays in your daily life, the nature of energy, and how you, by using your power of imagination create a certain frequency and vibration of energy which in turn forms your life and who you are.
Why your goals and dreams don't happen.
You start doubting yourself and feel uneasy and overwhelmed. The many exercises in this presentation about goals and dreams are tailored to help remove the concepts, resistances and fears you might have, even unconsciously, that stop you from reaching and manifesting your goal.
How to empower your life and make positive changes.
We use NLP (Neuro Linguistic Programming), which is the study of how our minds work, how we interact with it and how it results in certain behaviors to empower your life and make the changes you want.
More therapists are to be confirmed.
