Stiftelsen Stjärnsund is working for a holistic view of life, mainly by having courses in the broad area of personal growth. Stiftelsen Stjärnsund was founded in 1984 inspired by the Findhorn Foundation in Scotland. The foundation is a non-profit organization and is independent of political and religious organizations. We have no leader, neither spiritual nor worldly. All activity occurs in cooperation and through personal responsibility.
Our course-center is a large, redpainted timberbuilding from the 1890s. There is accommodation for c:a 28 over night guests. We have two large course-rooms, a dining room, a well-equipped kitchen, library, meditation room, a healing room and an ecologic shop. There is a green-house and a garden using organic cultivation methods for our own needs.

At present our participating guests program is very restricted. Please come and stay as an ordinary hostel guest, to negotiate your individual agreement, if you like it here.
You can also come here as an ordinary guest and enjoy our recreational facilities. There is a guest kitchen where you may store food and prepare meals.
We offer a large variety of courses – everything from dance, yoga, t’ai chi, meditation, music, painting and different kinds of healing.
There are many therapists of various kinds in our village, whom you can contact for healing. We have a nice healing room at Fridhem, which you can rent if you yourself are a healer.
You may meditate, use our library and walk in the beautiful surroundings. Two lakes give you possibilities for swimming, fishing and boating in the summer and in the winter you can skate or ski. We have a two km ski track lit in the evenings. A sauna is available on Saturdays.
Accommodation can be in single-, double- or four bedroom. You can always ask us for special requirements. It is good to bring indoor shoes or slippers. We also recommend that you bring warm clothing if you come during winter time. Good walking-shoes are also very useful.
