OUR VISION

Mundekulla Retreat and Course Center

Empowering people for positive change through education and inspiration

Mundekulla is an ecological course and retreat center in the countryside of Småland: The place where also the famous botanic Linnaeus and Pippi Longstocking come from. At Mundekulla people come together for courses, conferences and festivals, from 15-300 people, on personal development, mindfulness, creativity, nature and of course: beautiful nourishing food. 

 

Mundekulla is built on sustainable principles ever since it started over 20 years ago. From the buildings to green energy, from social justice to peace projects. Our biggest wish is to inspire people with the things we do and the food we make.

 

We want to create experiences, arts, learnings and inspiring food you just have to bring home to share with your loved ones.

PETER ELMBERG & STEPHANIE VERSTIFT INVITED TO DINNER AT THE ROYAL PALACE

29 APRIL 2022

Since 2014, the King and Queen annually invite more than 100 entrepreneurs to their traditional dinner at Stockholm Castle and at this year's dinner, two people from Mundekulla are represented, with the following motivation:

"Peter Elmberg is one of the founders of Mundekulla course and retreat center in Emmaboda municipality.

"Mundekulla Eco Tower" offers a fantastic view of the wilderness and the tranquility that surrounds the place 22 meters above ground.  On the first floor, we will describe more about our sustainability work on the theme "8 pillars of sustainability" where each pillar that supports the tower may symbolize a branch of Mundekulla's sustainability philosophy. There will also be three overnight rooms on the first three floors and a conference / meeting room at the top.

"I come into the peace of wild things who do not tax their lives with forethought of grief. I come into the presence of still water. And I feel above me the day-blind stars waiting with their light. For a time I rest in the grace of the world and I am free. "
