About the conference

‘Inner Connections:
Soul Breathing and Nature Breathing’

An international environment conference taking place in Ytterjärna – the biodynamic heart of Sweden

Exploring a new understanding of ourselves and nature in times of crisis, with exhibitions of meditative images

This gathering is a combination of conversations, lectures, and exhibitions. The lectures will shed light on the climate issue from different perspectives: scientific, evolutionary, spiritual, psychological, and artistic.

Our attitude towards nature is critically important, because we have acquired the power both to alter and destroy nature. Humankind is a part of nature and its war against nature is ultimately a war against humanity itself. Climate change, and extreme weather phenomena and a suffering natural world cry out for a new and deeper understanding of the inner connection between the rhythms of the human soul and those of the natural world. This event is intended to explore these aspects from a deeper viewpoint, the aim being to reconfirm the harmony between man and nature that has to exist for humankind to prosper.

During this conference that will take place between the 13th – 16th of April 2023, we will have several keynote speakers, they will be announced on the website as our schedule continues to develop. You can read more about the different speakers in the menu to the left.

There will also be several cultural events such as performances of music, as the conference will be held in one of Europe’s best acoustic music halls – Kulturhuset in Ytterjärna.
Additionally there will also be an art exhibition where we will show illustrations from Rudolf Steiner’s ”Calendar of the Soul” presented by the Karl König Institute as well as by Thor Ivar Olsen, read more about this in the menu to the left.

The Conference will be held in English. Translation into Swedish will be an option on site. If we get a lot of German attendants registered before april 1st we will also consider having German translators on site.

It will be a unique event filled with positivity as well as discussing serious subjects. We welcome you all to Kulturhuset i Ytterjärna 13-16 April 2023 and hope to see you there!
