All Nordic countries have their terms and activities that allow them to consciously create their personal well-being and satisfaction, and increase their feeling of happiness and security. The Danes have hygge, the Icelanders huggulegheit, the Swedes lagom, the Norwegians Ut på tur, aldrig sur and the Finns kalsarikänni – literally “getting drunk in your underwear”. Miska Rantanen, the author of “Pantsdrunk (Kalsarikänni): The Finnish Path to Relaxation”, will speak about the deeper meaning of kalsarikänni and how to practice this method on 24 and 25 May in Tallinn and Pärnu.

Miska Rantanen is a Finnish journalist, editor and director of the Norra Haga Party Central™ Institute. Rantanen’s literary career started in 2000 when he published his debut book “Lepakkoluola – Liekkihotellin tapahtumia ja ihmisiä“ (“Bat Cave – the Cases and People of the Flame Hotel”). It was followed by books about the legendary Finnish record label Love Records and journalistic bloopers collected over the years. Rantanen’s most popular book is “Pantsdrunk (Kalsarikänni): The Finnish Path to Relaxation”, published in 2018, where the author introduces the most popular Finnish philosophy of life to the readers.

The meetings are supported by the Nordic Writers Crossing Borders Programme, which is financed by CBSS and Nordplus.
