The Motherland Retreat 2023 is an all-inclusive, all-intentional summer camp-style retreat on the island of Styrsö in Western Sweden. Our 6-day immersive spiritual experience helps you leave the stress of life behind and land in a place where the only schedule you need to follow is one where adventure and fun are always on the agenda!
What to Expect
The Motherland Retreat is a summer camp-style spiritual retreat on the beautiful island of Styrsö, nestled in the Kattegat off the coast of Western Sweden.
This retreat is a unique blend of Liz Zamorski's signature spiritual style, admiration of this sacred land, knowledge of various healing modalities, and dedication to creating an inclusive and supportive community of growth.
Once you arrive at The Motherland, we make sure that everything is taken care of for you so you can focus on the fun and growth.
You can also expect quirky jokes and spontaneous island adventures because that's how we roll!
WARNING: you WILL leave here changed, and change requires discomfort and disruption. But we are here to witness and hold you through whatever form this takes for you.

We'll be staying in a traditional Swedish summer cottage, which was once a Captain's villa on the island and is now used as a summer camp retreat for groups to hire. Rooms are double- and triple-occupancy, with single bunkbeds and balcony access. Laundry facilities are free to use on the premises, which will be a godsend after some summer island adventuring.
We are so lucky to be welcoming back our favorite chef-in-residence, Chef George Wallace! Chef George carefully tends to the heart of The Motherland Retreat by making sure we always have fresh summer food that replenishes your soul and nourishes your body! The west coast of Sweden is known for its seafood and abundance of summer vegetables, and we'll be incorporating local flavors and produce to give you a full Swedish summer experience.
Sacred circles, daily hikes, exploration, cold-water plunges, foraging, fire rituals, psychic readings, energy healing, bodywork, yoga and qi gong, lawn games, a midsommar celebration, intuitive art, wreath-making workshops, the list goes on!
We have BIG plans for you, but we also stay flexible to leave room for the fun and magic!
The Motherland Retreat was amazing! The perfect way to connect with nature, connect with my authentic self and meet like minded souls.
Transport to and from The Motherland Retreat
We will provide transportation from Göteborg-Landvetter Airport or downtown Göteborg on the opening and closing days of the retreat.
Double- or triple-occupancy rooms with single-sized bunkbeds. We will provide bed linens, shower and beach towels, toiletries (shampoo, conditioner, body wash, face wash, and toothpaste), and access to on-site laundry facilities.
There will be nobody left behind when it comes to the food at the retreat! Chef George whips up our delicious breakfasts, lunches, dinners, and snacks with as many local and sustainable ingredients as possible ... and he takes requests! You'll even be treated to visiting the local fish-monger with him, and enjoy a 5-star meal prepared in the woods when he hikes out to meet us for lunch. Chef George also accommodates food allergies for the whole group, so please let us know in advance what you need on our end!
