Hjulsjö workshop

This  live week workshop in Hjulsjö village, will be shaped by  the different stages of the Theory U process:

  • Suspending judgement
  • Redirecting: embodied meditative and performative activities,
  • Letting go
  • Letting come: mapping
  • Enacting activities that make tangible connections to intangible experiences.
  • Embodying:

The entire workshop week focus on how the stages of Theory U support a co-creation of collective meals whose content, process and form express ecological and sustainable perspectives with a local and national Swedish profile. We will be sharing insight from our International participants who will be encouraged to propose practices from their own cultures with the potential to be adapted locally.

Each day offers a variety of opportunity to meet with course participants, course leaders, local partners and our village neighbours. We begin each day with a gearshift and shared breakfast and end each day in a collective meal making event that have these different themes :

Sharing a Taste experience  that expresses diversity of the students/ leaders,

Food waste meal making with haptic and tactile cooking methods,

Local experts knowledge and experience in:

  • eco gardening 
  • agroforestry
  • ranching

Our partners and invited guest are welcome to join our collective meal where we serve food product from Hjulsjö and the surrounding area.


Arrive at 16:00. Bring your Taster  to the missions kitchen /window bar. There will be tea and coffee with fruit at the window bar to land and relax .  Check out the surroundings and sett  up your tent.                                                                        The Taster starts around 18:00 at the missions house.  You first meet in pairs and explain  what you have made. Then each pair tastes  each others taster  …. Finally everyone tastes everyones taster and start to mingle, eat and drink. Take as small spoon first so there will be “Lagom ” enough to go around.

We then gather in a circle inside the missions house to learn each other names, go through the week program, practical issues and close with a lecture by John Thackara.
