The Camp

Here You find the information about our camp, camp programme, links for joining the sessions and for posting Your photos, videos and other interesting material related to our Camp themes ☃️.

Tara Rokpa Wintercamp started 2016 in Finland in Lapland at Tunturikeimiö.

Our basic theme “Exploring the elements” has been the same all these years added with yearly “twist” of other topics, not to forget free artwork, movement, massage, sauna, winterswimming and pancakes:).

We have been enjoying the beautiful, pure nature of Lapland ❄️.

Unfortunately this year we cant physically go there but we can connect with the themes and each of us anyway on this Online Camp.

There is also a possibility to share our experiences and  memories with element work, nature experiences and of course winter, how ever it is where we each live ❄️ ❄️❄️

And we are proud to introduce that all this is first time ever done through our sharing and learning site called “The way to go”.

“Exploring the elements-Restoring the balance”

We feel that the understanding Elements work offer us is precious in the way it helps us connect to ourselves, to the nature and all the phenomena we face in our lives, in time and space.

This years theme connect us to the question and investigation how Exploring the elements could help us in Restoring the balance, physically and mentally?

After this corona year and all environmental changes we have become aware of, we felt that it is specially needed.

 We have a wonderful method, Tara Rokpa, that can help us and others and give us hope for restoring the balance.

We welcome all of You to join and enjoy this wintercamp , sharing, learning and feeling connectedness to and through the elements, to ourselves and to each other.

We will have interesting talks, practise sessions and also meditation moments and visualisations but also massage session and movements online.

You are welcome to join all of them or some of them:)

We also have a Kudo Board for creative sharing available just like we had in the summer camp.

See You at the camp!


You are welcome to join all the sessions or some of them.

To be ready for the theme sessions, you might want to have a blanket or cushion to make yourself comfortable during the relaxations. Also, please have some simple art materials close by, and bring a rock or stone, a small bowl of water, and a candle or incense for the elements practice. If you have access to the outdoors, have a warm coat and boots handy too.
