SPRING IN FULL SWING!!!
Trees are blossoming in Ängsbacka's garden celebrating life and the beauty of simplicity. Are you a beautiful soul who finds pleasure in tending the garden? In working outside while being in the constant company of small everyday wonders?
Ängsbacka's park and garden long for your loving hands! We are presently looking for a gardener and/or people with skills in gardening/lawn care. Do you recognize yourself in this calling?
Are you willing to live and work with us in this magic, supporting the Course Center and each other? There is plenty of space and tasks available for your helping hands - inside and outside!
Come and join us at this most beautiful time of the year!

Ängsbacka is a course- and festival center located in Värmland, Sweden.
Ängsbacka’s program changes with the seasons – and the volunteer experience changes along with them. The program in winter, spring and fall mainly consists of courses and trainings. During this period Ängsbacka serves as a home for a number of all year round members of staff and long-term volunteers who run all operations on site.
Ängsbacka meets the summer in full bloom and opens up for more people to join the flow. Together we build up the summer site and gather positive energy for the manifestation of our festivals. Whether you come to Ängsbacka as short term volunteer during festivals, or commit to a long-term engagement, your unique contribution is a valuable part of the whole!
At Ängsbacka we breathe life into our core values through morning meetings, sharings, meditations and working together for a common purpose in a drug- and alcohol free environment. Everyone who comes to Ängbacka for a shorter or a longer period of time will be introduced to our guidelines for living and working together and to the practice of sharing, another tool for taking care of ourselves and each other.

As a course or longerm volunteer you will be accommodated in mostly 4 bed rooms, often shared among people of the same gender.
Please bring your own sheet, towel and sleeping bag - Ängsbacka can not provide these for volunteers. You might also want to bring an extra towel for the sauna.
Please bring earplugs if you are noise-sensitive or prefer to sleep early.
In the summer all festival volunteers will be accommodated in large tents on the campground next to the festival site. The tents will be equipped with bunk beds and shared among 10 people of the same gender. There are (outdoor) toilets and showers nearby.
We have been serving popular courses like Zen Coaching, Dearmoring and The Diamond Approach for a long time and thousands of people have experienced personal growth over the years. We celebrate this success and continue to offer a variety of courses in personal development. In the menu to the left we hope you will find a course that suits you…
Our festivals hold the very heart of Ängsbacka. We have festivals running throughout the year that aim to inspire people in their personal and spiritual development as well as promoting a more sustainable lifestyle.
Each festival here at Ängsbacka has its own characteristics. All our employees, coordinators and volunteers together lay the foundation to ensure the warm atmosphere that support every festival in becoming a truly unique experience. When you participate in a festival you are given a chance to try out many different techniques and get inspired within the area of a chosen theme.
Our largest event; the No Mind Festival, brings around a thousand people from all over the world to Ängsbacka for a full week of new and inspiring experiences. The festival offers a smorgasbord of Swedish and international workshop-leaders and musicians who all share their gifts with us at Ängsbacka.
This year the No Mind Festival is taking a break. Welcome to Celebrate life! Festival with us!
