This unique IIT will be held at Kiponniemi Activity Resort located in the middle of the beautiful lake district of Finland, about 18 km from the city of Jyväskylä. Finland is the land of a thousand lakes and our setting is a peninsula surrounded by water. Let’s warm our hearts in the many saunas on location and cleanse ourselves in the clean Finnish waters. Kiponniemi is a very popular all-season destination for seekers of a peaceful holiday experience. Outdoor wooden shelters, lean-tos, and excellent campfire possibilities throughout the area provide rest places for picnics in the woods. Kiponniemi calls you to come and stay, and enjoy its peaceful natural surroundings by the clean peninsula waters and is a perfect place to center your mind, spirit, and practice of NVC.
On July 1st when we gather, the sun will be setting at 10:45pm and rising up again at 3am. Between these two times is perpetual sunrise and sunset that will bathe our dream states and usher us from one day of connection and learning to the next. We will experience the shifted qualities of space and time as the daylight stretches into the night and allow ourselves to be infused by the energy of the midnight sun and let the long shadows of the twilight hours invite us into an exploration of long shadows in our lives.
Kiponniemi offers comfortable accommodation in 3-5 person rooms, which are located in the main building on the campus. There are also limited single rooms, shared rooms in the main building, shared rooms in cabins, and shared rooms with loft beds. Other facilities are two saunas by the shore of the lake and a fireplace room for 12 people. Prices include three meals per day and coffee breaks. The venue offers vegetarian and vegan options. Please indicate your choice in the IIT application form.
We invite you to stay with us for the entire time, as evenings and mornings can be a place and time for some extra activities, offered content, music, light talks, a peaceful walk, or a cozy rest. However, if you live nearby, it is understandable if you choose to drive daily to the venue.
In the Commute daily package, we have included two meals per day (lunch and dinner), and two coffee breaks during the day including coffee and tea. If you would like to join us for breakfast or evening snacks (not included in the package price), please let us know in advance.
