Nature Reset: 5 Day Wellbeing Retreat with the Mana Team
January 13, 2022 @ 4:00 pm - January 18, 2022 @ 2:00 pm
Do you long for an opportunity to simplify your to-do list and tend to your much-needed self-care?
Would you like to hit the reset button and start the New Year from a place of inner stillness and clarity?
The New Year brings with it a fresh start and a sense of rejuvenation and rebirth. However, for most people it is overwhelmed by the intensity of a busy schedule.
It is all too easy to set your self-care intentions aside while you tend to the demands of life. We all do it. However, this retreat invites you to reset your old ways and start anew.
Imagine having five days to pause, breathe and turn your attention inward; to have the support of a space that nourishes silence, long walks in nature, quiet introspection, wholesome wholefood and a community of like-hearted people.
Nature Reset is about awakening awareness of your truth, leaning into the support of the mountains, sky, land and sea to recalibrate and re-energise.
During this 5 Day Retreat you will experience…
- Guided practices to help you slow down the busyness of the mind and connect to a deeper source of inner wisdom.
- Conversations to help expand your self-enquiry and self-care.
- Nature-inspired ceremonies to enrich your connection with the seen and unseen forces supporting your in life.
- An invitation to be in Nature in a way that helps you to recalibrate your nervous system.
- Nourishing plant-based meals, sourced locally and organically to cleanse your body and lighten your spirit.
- 5 Nights Shared Room Accommodation
This organic, home-grown retreat is hosted and held by the team here at Mana. We provide a caring environment and a daily schedule with resources for self-exploration. Our team will lead a series of soulful sessions to encourage you to deepen your own personal practice or try something new. From conscious movement to ceremonial ritual, days in silence to shared community discussions, there will be a range of inspiration for you to integrate into your own Nature Reset experience.
