We began reconstructing an old desolated farmhouse plus stables and barn in 2013 with the intention to make a retreat for writers and others who want to exercise their creativity by art or science.
The intention was to reach creative people,artists or scientists who wanted to stay in a beautiful and peaceful area in northern Iceland for a month or more and mix with the locals and promote their art in the area along with getting inspiration from the culture of our country.
We who operate the institution are: Swany (Svanfrë?ur Ingvadë¢ttir) who is an interior designer and a dancing instructor born 1955 / Peter (P_Ñ_tur Einarsson) a writer and a philosopher with former background as a master carpenter, international lawyer and the Director of Civil Aviation Iceland rtd. Peter is born 1947.
Swany loves to restore old furniture and design exotic artistic combinations.
Peter carries on with his writing and adding to the restoration of Sela.
Our institution is operated by our fund LABORATORY OF MIND AND IMAGINATION.
We, Swany and Peter, focus on creative people of finer arts or science who also want to discuss philosophical issues as Peter has written books on the subject and he and Swany love to have dialogues on subjects of such value adding to their love of philosophy.
Peters main book is METASOPHY, LEARNING TO DIE &ndash DYING TO LEARN
Our aim is to make the Laboratory of Mind and Imagination Sela a sought-after retreat for creative compassionate people to fulfill their need for a perfect retreat.
Our objective is to teach our guests what we know and to seek new knowledge for us and the community from the creative people, artists and scientists that stay with us.
