Audio Retreats

We are excited to bring Mana to you, where ever you are in the world!
Our new ‘Audio Retreats’ Podcast is a way of sharing simple & mindful connections to the land, nature, infinite stillness and luminous field of love that is Mana. As we continue to develop our audio collection we invite you to retreat with us – wherever you are.



Our beautiful, open plan kitchen is the warm, nourishing centre of Mana. The delicious, totally vegetarian menu uses fresh, local, seasonal, whole foods, organic wherever possible. Our recipe blog features vegetarian meal plans, seasonal recipes, ideas for culinary gifts & preserving – bring the taste of Mana into your kitchen.



We all find inspiration in different ways, that is why this collection of  poems, writings, daily practices, quotes and videos have been collated from many sources. Here, Mana staff, community, teachers and renown philosophers share their thoughts – in the words of Paul Smith “You can find inspiration in everything. If you can’t… look again.”
