Mana Retreat Schedule


Since 1988 Mana has been offering a wide variety of experiences in the areas of body-mind education, creative expression and spiritual exploration. Our octagonal meeting room, library and dining area provide an ideal space for workshops and conferences.

Mana is also the perfect place for personal retreats. As well as lawns, decks and gardens there are 120 ha of rolling hills, bush and streams with walking tracks and special places. There is a sauna and a sweatlodge and on-site professional therapists offer massage, watsu and bodywork.

We are available for eco and esoteric tour groups and, using adjoining accommodation, can accommodate up to 60 people for groups of this nature.

If you need more information about any of these events please phone us on
