Welcome

At Our Place, we aspire to share a way of life that is in harmony and balance with nature and filled with joy, beauty and creativity.

This unique experience is set in the tranquility between the ancient lakes of Toven and Alsjon in the fairy-tale forests of Smaland, Sweden.

Stay with us and reclaim your balance in life. Share your doorstep with fox, deer and more than 40 species of birds in one of four idyllic wooden cottages perched on the hills overlooking the lakes, or choose the spacious apartment in the historic main house with its 3 foot deep solid walls.

Let us guide you on recharging walks through the surrounding forest during our Retreats, inspirational Seminars and Workshops tailored to your specific needs at this time in your life.

Or you can choose a leisurely stay and spend your vacation in our lovely place, with the lakes and forest ready and waiting to be enjoyed by children and grownups alike.  Hike through the woods, dip in the lake, paddle the canoe into the sunset, or have a refreshing morning fishing experience slowly drifting in the summer breeze. Kids love to bounce on our trampoline, and become happy ‘popcorn”as we like to call them, and we don’t mind at all when mom and dad have a go as well 🙂

We honor Sustainability, Local, Seasonal, Eco and Fair-trade products, and during our retreats we serve a Vegetarian menu.

About us

Meet the Creators @ A Way of Life in Tofvehult

After 18 successful years as proprietors of this renowned gem in the forest of south Sweden, husband and wife Peter and Lena Goransson are transitioning into a new adventure.

Korinne May, Lena’s best friend since their twenties joined forces to reshape their award winning establishment Tofvehult Cafe and B&B into a habitat of Inspiration and Awareness.

A Way of Life in Tofvehult was born in 2016 and has been blossoming under their loving care ever since.

Korinne May - Spiritual Nomad

 

Korinne May started her quest for the truth of life, in 2000 by making the crucial and life changing choice to end the 24 year relationship with the father of her son and her 2 heartdaughters,  as well as a successful 10 year career as a movie producer.

A challenging, inspiring and unpredictable journey began, leading her on a nomadic track, back and forth between Miami , Hawaii, Amsterdam, Costa Rica, Italy, Sweden and onwards. Since then, all outward travels and life experiences are continuously leading to deeper levels inside herself, constantly illuminating the consciousness she is seeking.

This ongoing path of awareness inspired her to share one of her discoveries; INNER WORLD GUARDIANSHIP, and she is currently writing an experienced based guide on how to become the topographer and guardian of your own Inner Space.  Her personal transformation in life, as a result of  cleaning up and taking care of this unseen realm, is a true testament to how that work reflects our Outer World experience and how incredibly important it is to become aware of that responsibility toward ourselves, and to become the powerful creators of our own life story.

Ten day silent meditations at various VIPASSANA Centers around the world, and what ended up to be a one year Solitarian Sabbatical, while Korinne lived with her dog Super in isolated Drake Bay Costa Rica, became yet another study of self.  Facing fears, past traumas and challenges of the unknown resulted in an infinite wealth of insights, discoveries and healing and became a further  inspiration for Korinne to share these found treasures in the form of seminars and workshops at A Way Of Life-Tofvehult in Sweden, co-founded by Lena Goransson, her husband Peter, and Korinne in 2016.

Lena and Korinne met in Lanzarote, one of the Canarian Islands of the coast of Morocco, during their international modelling careers 30 years ago. They instantly recognized a deep connection and forged a life-long friendship. Throughout the years both Korinne and Lena successfully managed their modelling careers, motherhood and various entrepreneurial ventures each dealing with the challenges and obstacles in their own unique way while living far apart in different continents. Only recently they merged their individual desire to share their experiences and their own Way Of Life with others, inspiring Awareness on all levels of existence. They are currently co-writing a series of books with tales containing the mystery and the magic in their lives, and are growing their Inspirational habitat in Sweden with the intention to become an International gathering place for all individuals seeking a balanced, peaceful and joyful life.

 

Lena Lindberg Göransson- Seeker of beauty and balance in life

 

When I was five I sat on a tree stump in the woods behind my grandparents summerhouse and something spoke to me, through me…I became aware of a wisdom, ancient and timeless, residing inside of me. It changed me forever…

My life’s journey has taken me through many adventures, I´ve met many inspiring, curious travelers on my road to finding out more about life’s mysteries and I find life to be a very rewarding experience.

I met my soulmate, the father of my children when I was 17. It took a year for him to understand that he was meant for me and I for him, but since then we´ve shared our lives and now we are parents to three amazing young people, Evelina, William and Simone.

I met Korinne in Lanzarote, while I was working as an International model, something I did for twelve years. There was an instant recognition, I knew we were meant to be in each others lives, there was a reason for our meeting and even though our lives has given us different roads to travel, we have kept in touch and now we are setting out on this new adventure together, like we were always meant to do.

I believe in seeing opportunities in life, being aware of the beauty that exists in everything. To me nature is a religion and I speak to the trees and vibrate with mother earth. I believe strongly in natures power of healing our stressed souls and I think that we need to reconnect with the simple pleasures in life to find and regain our balance…

Simple things like eating good and healthy food, together, sitting down with a good book and a nice cup of tea, enjoying the beautiful flowers in the garden, counting all the shades of green you can see when you are out walking in the woods. I believe in speaking softly and in caring for each other, looking for the best in another person and in forgiving, forgive yourself and forgive others…

I believe that what we all need is love, the unconditional love that asks for nothing back, but the simple joy of feeling that giving it can make the world a better place…for all of us…

Oh, and by the way, besides being an International model, traveling the world for 12 successful years, I have also been running my own business “Tofvehult Kafé, Konferens and Boende” , (café, conference and lodging) for  18 rewarding years, receiving prizes for entrepreneurial skills, had numerous articles written about our success story, started a book company with my husband Peter and two friends, given out 6 titles, won international awards for some of them, held seminars on being a woman in business, talked about how it is being a countryside entrepreneur and what that could entail.

I have been part of several different business networks, sat on a number of boards, started a school for children the age of 3-12 years with the profile of outdoor activities and lessons outside in nature, “a greenhouse for growing”.

Last, but not least, I have also studied, all my life I have been a student, through books, (I love to read!!) or by taking actual classes, in business and marketing, languages , yoga and Qigong, pottery, writing courses, reading circles and cooking and more…much more…

My latest studies have been in the “School of Graceful Living”, founded by Agneta Nyholm Winqvist. www.gracefulliving.se . I took both their courses, the Interior Design program and their Leadership course for women. This has given me beautiful friends for life, wisdom and insights, apart from the knowledge in how to design and live a graceful life that I will make use of in my own way… our way… “A way of life-Tofvehult”…

Peter Goransson- Curious Seeker

 

Life is a strange journey filled with exciting moments, difficult misfortunes, tricky challenges and amazing meetings with delightful people. That is what makes it so interesting! I am in what we call ”middle of life” and that feels good to me. When I look back at the first part (50+ years) of my life I can see three qualities that have shaped it, curiosity, creativity and my social skills. One of my first employers used to say “ it doesn’t matter where one puts you, you will always manage” or as our son William once said; “Dad, you say hello to anything that moves…even the trees when it´s windy”. I am inclined to agree.

Curiosity has led me through a number of exciting choices of professions and with that a whole lot of experiences. I have worked in sales, marketing, capital investments and financing but also as a lecturer, moderator, coach and a couple of other things as well. Quite different lines of business that all have one thing in common and which is what I like most- meetings with people. There have been many encounters with people through the years, where every occasion has been unique and filled with surprises. We have so much to learn from each other, even when it feels difficult there is an opportunity to grow or to quote Kay Pollack; “In every meeting with another person there is an opportunity for me to find out something about myself.”  Just as uncomfortable as it is wise!

I guess it is that curiosity about what we can learn about ourselves and others (in that order) which led me to coaching and also to eventually get certified in it. Coaching is a technique that I use to look at myself as I go about life, to help others help themselves and as a simple tool in everyday challenges.  But it is not always easy just because it is simple…

My life partner and wife Lena is my main “sparring partner”, my coach when it comes to questions about the peculiarities of life. It can be as challenging as it is developing! Our three “grown up kids” Evelina, William and Simone are what I am most proud of in my life, they are three strong, wise, kind and insightful individuals who will bring much good into this world, all in their own unique way.

Well, I have to tell you that I have been lecturing for almost 10 years. In my company “Arbetslivsglädje”  I share my thoughts , and the ones of others, on “your personal brand”, “workhappiness” and hosting, but there tend to be other things as well, since it is the participants involvement and the energy in the room that to a certain degree controls the outcome. A result to the fact that my wife Lena used to say to me; “It is more important that you all are having fun and that the energy is good, than it all is perfect.”…she is so wise!

My curiosity in people as well as in the difference between cultures has lured me into traveling and with that, many magical meetings. There are a number of countries, that have made a strong impact on me, but strongest of them all is Japan and the impressions I took from there. Have you too been in a place where you feel you belong? Almost as if you have lived there during a different time? Japan is one of those places to me, a country where their history, culture, food and their mystique made me feel extremely present.

Maybe that feeling is the primary reason why I during fall of 2015 chose to participate in a Vipassana course http://www.dhamma.org.  Vipassana is one of the worlds oldest meditation techniques and means “to see something as it is”. To see things as they are, is a big challenge, but I think there is a very important message in trying to not complicate things, which we often do. Through meditation, even if it is just a short “sitting” for five minutes, I can find peace and become more present.

I am not only 50+, I am also a man and in that lies a lot of challenges and on occasion, we “strong men”, feel inadequate, but we do hide it so well!? It is hard to admit and to talk about, but that is how it is. This is only one of the areas where I am convinced that we need to find more ways to be able to “ventilate”. Another area is how to find joy in working, “arbetsglädje”, and motivation in workplaces, and I know there are a lot of places where this kind of work needs to happen. I hope that I in one way or another can contribute!

Our Essence

All our actions come from a place of Love.

We speak softly and with love and listen to each other.

We respect ourselves and others and commit to be honest and straight.

We aspire to refrain from gossip or speaking negatively about ourselves and others.

We love nature and animals, and look after them as best we can.

We strive to live sustainable, grow delicious organic vegetables, fruit and berries & support local and seasonal produce as best we can.

We buy and serve organic and Fair-trade products when available and use bio degradable materials as much as we can.

We preserve our well-water and use as little as possible.

We re-purpose materials as much as possible and recycle our used glass, metal, paper and plastic with your help.

We strive to leave every place better then we found it, therefore we clean up after ourselves.

We never litter in nature and respect the Swedish Allemans rätten (The right to roam).

We don’t wear shoes inside and when we can, we love to walk barefoot because we know our feet and toes love some freedom once in a while 😉

And….we have tons and tons of FUN!!!

 

 

 

Is this for me?

Do any of the following ponderings resonate with you?

How can I improve the quality of my life?

How can I relax and stop worrying?

How can I recognize habits that hold me back from a fulfilled life?

How can I detox from the digital world I am in?

How can I let go of the past, and stop it from influencing my present and future?

How can I choose what is best for myself without feeling selfish?

How can I become the best version of myself?

How can I get to truly know and understand myself?

How can I become more compassionate towards myself and others?

How can I learn to improve my physical, emotional, spiritual and social health?

If so then maybe A way of Life Tofvehult  is where you can come and start finding some answers. Allow the serene setting of Our Place , embraced by the magical forest of South Sweden and the peaceful energy of the ancient lakes and streams , to serve as a safe and nurturing womb, while we inspire you towards a path of recovery, discovery and reconnecting with self.
