The Mandali Immersion is our new seasonal signature in-house retreat programme for those who are seeking a profound, transformative dive into their inner world. This retreat is designed to help you embrace profound stillness, listen to the whispers of your body and heart-mind, and find inner peace during the winter months. Mirroring the calm, tranquil nature of this season, we will offer you ample time for reflection and quietude. This is a time to turn inward. Through meditation, gentle movement practices, and mindful contemplation, you'll find the peace you seek within and give your body the rest it needs during this time of year.

The Mandali Immersion is tailored for those who already have experience with being on a retreat, or if you feel you are ready for a deepening of your spiritual practice. This retreat will be entirely in silence. Because of its immersive nature it is suggested you attend all program sessions, including the Sharing Circle at the end. To ensure an intimate retreat experience the number of participants is limited to 35.

Expertly designed by our teachers, this programme offers a combination of:

  • Daily guided and silent meditations
  • Daily Kum Nye (Tibetan Yoga)
  • Teachings about, and time for reflection on, inner peace
  • Teachings based on traditional Chinese Medicine
  • Six days of silence
  • Guided nature walk
  • Access to a beautiful nourishing Body Care Center (pool, jacuzzi, sauna, steam bath)
  • Delicious vegetarian meals

The Mandali Immersion will be guided by experienced Mandali teachers:

Evangelos Diavolitsis will offer daily meditations, and teachings and inquiry on inner peace.

Marije Paternotte will offer daily meditations and teachings based on traditional Chinese Medicine regarding the energy of winter.

Gijs Fermie will offer daily Kum Nye (Tibetan Yoga) and meditation sessions.
