Mundekulla Retreat Farm is situated in the south of Sweden, in the county of Småland. It is internationally renowned for its calm and peaceful surroundings and is often described as a little paradise, built on ecological principles. The site offers a varied and beautiful landscape surrounded by old forests, creeks and freshwater ponds (for swimming) as well as walking paths. The property rests on 60 hectares (150 acres). As such it is a perfect place for mindfulness, yoga, retreats and festivals and similar events.
Småland means ”small lands or countries” and is quite an accurate description of this county. It has been populated since around 12 000 years BC, when the ice age slowly disappeared and the first gather hunterers wandered up north, discovering reindeer trails. Archeologists reveal a land that embraces a human history that runs from these first gather hunterers through the era of the vikings, and further on to modern times. Anthropologic studies in this region has found very early expressions of a religious life, closely interrelated with the animals and nature beings, with whom they lived closely interrelated. Småland features a population shaped by the conditions, nowadays known for their persevering nature and hard working ethics.
