Nature Immersion 1-Day Retreat

With Rasmus Ludvigsen
Sunday, 5th September 2021
09:30 - 16:00 CEST 
Venue: Egholm, Tranemosevej 31
2750 Ballerup, Denmark

Ticket: 500 DKK 

Join us for a day long nature immersion and introduction to some ancient practices from shamanism.  


Shamanism is humanity's oldest spiritual practice, a tradition for healing and problem solving. It is a way of maintaining balance within the individual, and between the individual and the rest of creation. It is also an ancient leadership practice.  

The retreat will take place at the beautiful Egholm nature center, in the magical Hareskoven forest.


During this experience, you will be introduced to some of the main ideas and methods in shamanism. Shamanism is not limited to Native Americans or other indigenous cultures. Northern Europe also has an ancient shamanic tradition, and we all have - as human beings - the ability to work shamanically. 

Rasmus Ludvigsen has had a shamanic practice for the past 14 years. He has facilitated medicine walks for the Heartful Academy community on a number of occasions, with great feedback from the participants. 

In his professional life, Rasmus has an engineering degree and holds a management position at a global company. 

Rasmus has a lot of experience with how to live authentically as a spiritually aware human being in a world full of expectations and busy activity.  


What to expect during the day?

Please arrive between 09:30 and 09:45 to settle in so we can start promptly at 10am. We will work together for 6 hours with a break for lunch.

In the first part of the day you will be introduced to drumming, to shift into shamanic consciousness and maybe meet your spirit helpers and explore the spirit world. In this other reality, one can gain power and knowledge for oneself and others and touch the spirit side of nature. 


In second part you will be introduced to the medicine walk, which is a very natural and simple way to communicate with the nature around us and start to hear what it says. It is easy to learn if we give ourselves time and follow a few steps and principles. 


To complete, in a circle, we will share the experiences of the journeys, and learn how to understand them. 

Post retreat integration

This is deep work, and we highly recommend that you allow yourself some quiet time after the workshop. When you get home try to give yourself one hour, or if you can, the rest of the day to let the experiences sink in and give time for reflection, insights and new ideas. This helps the work to deepen and integrate. Give the nature and spirits room to work before going back to "normal life".

What does it cost, and how can I purchase a ticket?

The retreat fee is 500 DKK per person. As we are keeping the group small, please click the Sign up button to get in touch and let us know the you would like to join. Once confirmed, you will receive a MobilePay number to pay for your participation.

Medicine Walk at Rude Skov

Do you have a question you struggle to get clarity on? During a Medicine Walk you can ask Nature for an answer. You may just be surprised how beautifully She provides every time! This Medicine Walk was guided by Rasmus Ludvigsen, on Sunday, 4th October 2020.


A Medicine Walk is a very natural and simple way to come into communication with the world around us and begin to hear what it is saying. It is easy to learn if we give ourselves time and follow a focused framework. In a way, it is re-learning what we have always known on a deep level.

Hosted together with Marcus Bodnia, the Nature Gathering took place on the beautiful island of Møn, Denmark, on August 21st - 23rd 2020.
