Venue – Sklenářka
Our solstice celebration takes place at Sklenářka, a beautiful place in the heart of the woods, where a harmonic composition of young and long-standing trees surrounds a hundred-year villa. Sklenářka is a centre for meditations and natural teachings, supporting paths of finding nature of human sub-consciousness, ideals of self-sufficiency and sustainability of sources. It is open for meeting of individuals as well as groups on the path of self-discovery and personal development. In summer we have an opportunity to co-create such a meeting.
What will be available at Sklenářka besides us and our programme?
There is a natural pool, which can be used during the event for refreshing.
Peacock family – Sklenářka is also a home of several peacocks, which walk around the whole place with their dignity, sleep at trees and sometimes “sing” very loud.
You can also find here a hermitage for stays in darkness and secluded areas, a tepee, a sweat-lodge, a fireplace, a bow shooting range, a Sacred grove and meditation places in the nature and beautiful woods all around.
At Sklenářka there is a community of local people living and creating experimental space for community life in a natural, unstructured hierarchy and in open communication with others. The objective is always a sustainable, self-sufficient life in harmony with nature.
“We want to create and maintain space for peaceful grooving that will serve all those who need it”, say the locals.
Sklenářka and its team coordinated by Tereza and Honza Dlabal will provide optimum conditions for accommodation and social background during our entire meeting, including simple and vital vegetarian meals.
All day there will be an offer of refreshments to buy – coffee, freshly pressed juices, snacks for sweet tooth and even small hunger.
