Dear lovely Urghs, due to the cosy but also smaller space we have for the swiss burn this year I would kindly ask everybody who is planning to come with a yurt or a big big tent for outside camping to get in contact with placement as soon as possible! Thank you kindly.
Long, long time ago in a distant galaxy, there was a loving mother waiting for her next offspring
to see the light of wonder. The universe around her created worry and doubt as the living
creatures abused their nourishing land for wealth and ego while all they needed was unity. The
mother lived in lack of love and life force, never sure if she’d made it and if she’d be able to
provide for her family to show them true bliss through loving kindness.
When suddenly, the source got hit by a big bang, the divine power of creation trying to bring all
creatures back to reason. The loving mother – ready to leave everything behind – went on a
journey to find clarity, support and purpose. Travelling through the galaxies, she saw a tiny
shiny light on planet earth. From afar she witnessed a picture she oh so well knew: a battle
between their own kind and all kinds of microorganisms, living creatures, abuse and a fight for
glory and status, a crumbling community.
And despite the human creatures not doing any better than her own tribe, she could feel that
little spark of deep rooted feeling that was: HOPE.
Hope for union, unity and community.
With the loudest sounds she’s ever expressed, gathering all her suffering, sadness and
year-long silence, in a world of despair and suffocation, there was this eternal voice of love
speaking, no screaming out of her womb: URGHHHHHHHH!
For all sinners, lovers and loverines, to find forgiveness and truth, to be welcomed to the
burning planet of wonders and magic. Far up the Swiss alps, where the ground and the trees
were covered in snow in the middle of a dark, cold and innocent nature, there was light shining
out from the inner centre of a number of creatures who came together to find warmth and
First there was silence and then there was URGH.
Echoing laughter filled her ears, experimental art sparked her eyes, infectious happiness filled
her heart and blissful silence calmed her mind. All qualities reunited in one circle of URGH.
URGH is welcoming you with your own loving and shining heart, you, creature of light, a silent
nomad, a cheerful introvert, a different kind and yet you are one.
We meet as one, we dance as one and we create as one.
Welcome with us this new child, a gift to the universe and space.
URGH – a name carrying the past of suffering, effort, pain and stuck emotions, ready to ignite a
new era bigger than us, radically including all the dimensions and shades of being.
Everyone of you is an appreciated contribution to this miracle, building a colourful city in snow
as more and more arrive. And so we can’t wait to have you sparking up that beautiful mountain
with warm souls and fresh minds so that the world can hear us cry out of sheer joy: URGH
