Spring at Mana Retreat Centre is the perfect time for inner and outer renewal with writer and interfaith minister Stephanie Dowrick who is one of our most experienced and deeply appreciated retreat leaders. Together we will rediscover what best supports a sense of inner stability and confidence that makes the most of life, whatever our outer circumstances.
We will look deeply into what it means for each of us to be “well” – to the very last – and also what it means to be happy, and at relative peace within ourselves. During the first three days we will combine teaching, reflection, meditation, discussion and questions – with plenty of time to rest as well as enjoy the company of one another.
There will be an opportunity for those people who are doing the full 6 days retreat to have a short personal meeting with Stephanie to discuss any spiritual questions you might have.
Our optional 3-day extension offers a smaller group a deepened experience of silence, meditation, rest and reflection. Supported by short daily teachings, with ample time for personal questions and guidance, this is highly recommended for those seeking an even greater depth of renewal and peace.
Enjoy the exceptional community experience of retreat life, with ample time for reflection, teachings and discussion, along with delicious vegetarian food, beauty of nature, and rare care for mind, body and spirit. Body treatments available. Our days will be spent enjoying a mixture of inspirational teaching from Stephanie, discussion in small groups, meditation and reflection and rest in silence.
Nourishing vegetarian food, walks, rest and optional body treatments including Watsu deepen the joyful “Mana” experience. This is a retreat that can truly refresh mind, body and spirit, led by one of Australasia’s most experienced and popular workshop and retreat leaders.
This year the Annual Spring Retreat at Mana will be followed by three optional days of increasing peace, silence, rest and meditation and the opportunity for short personal meetings with Stephanie for those that wish it.
