In July I went on a Quaker Voluntary Action (QVA) working retreat to Sweden at Svartbacken, where we refurbished the Quaker residential centre set in beautiful countryside. We worked for the mornings and shared making meals. There were times for meditation and worship and free time for swimming in the lake or walking in the woods five minutes walk away or travelling to Uppsala or the nearby town. A wonderful time with lovely people. See the slide show.
