Mandali Silent Retreat – Fully booked
Join us in the beautiful Lake region of Northern Italy.
Mandali is situated at 850 metres above sea level, high on a hill with a stunning view of the lake. All the rooms are beautifully designed to provide comfort, privacy and relaxation. Every room features an en-suite shower and toilet.
Mandali’s kitchen will provide three vegetarian meals per day, prepared with the best selection of organic fresh and local ingredients. Each meal is served buffet style. They will also be able to cater for special dietary needs such as vegan, gluten-free and dairy-free, providing balanced alternative menus (you will be asked to provide dietary information as part of your registration process). There will be filtered water, tea, and fresh fruit available all day, every day.
The ability to gather together and be with teachings and practices, silence, nature and each other quietly is a great privilege and something many of us have been without for far too long. We are looking forward to welcoming each of you.
We will practice many sessions of meditation coupled with Yin and Yang Yoga, time for hiking and swimming, sauna and massage, partner inquiry sessions, gourmet plant based meals (with some dairy options), as well as private and small group sessions with Sarah or Ty for each participant.
The teachings will emphasize the heart opening methods inspired by the 7 points of Mind Training taught by Atisha, an 11th century Indian Yogi who spent his later years transforming the Tibetan Buddhist views on compassion and awareness as lived in everyday life. These down to earth teachings have been widely followed for centuries, earning Atisha at the time the nickname ’Sublime teacher of impulsive behavior and its results.’
In advance of the retreat, you may enjoy reading, Always Maintain A Joyful Mind by Pema Chodron, Sarah’s new book Lit From Within as well as viewing Sarah’s teachings on Opening the Mind Lojong 1-6.
We look forward to each of you being able to drop in, open up, and dive deep as you ignite and reclaim the profound resources dwelling within you.
