A NIGHT IN THE TREES is an invitation to spend the night softly hanging in a hammock between the old beech trees around Liselund Garden on Møn in August.

In the evening, you pick up your overnight kit, then equipped with a hammock, a few individual items, and a set of letters, you are ready to begin your very own sensuous night ritual.

You get to read the letters one by one as the evening progresses. They will guide you through small rituals, preparing you for the night and leading you to find rest and inspiration in the wisdom, power and intelligence of nature.

The night, the sleep and the presence of the old beech trees accompany us on a journey of consciousness towards the dawn. When we connect with nature and the more-than-human, our notion of collectivity, coherence and spirit is put into a new perspective and becomes more living, sensory and may get new meanings.

You can arrive alone or in a small group. Each night up to 8 of us will inhabit the same area in the forest yet we will each go through our individual journey in a guided do-it-yourself experience. All you need to bring is your sleeping bag and an open mind.

NB! Instructions are in English.
