Retreats – what is a retreat?
Going on a retreat means taking time away from your ordinary life. It is a special time for you. Giving you space to reflect on and nourish your inner life. It is about relaxing and refocusing on what is most important to you.
This can be incredibly invigorating, and people have said it leads to a reassessment of your life, relationships, values…. And why not? As Jung once said, what is the point of climbing a ladder, only to find it is leaning against the wrong wall?
Retreats are about making sure your ladder is on the wall you choose.
A personal retreat is ‘me time’. You might be stepping away from a hectic life style, responsibilities at work, a difficult emotional situation, caring for children or loved ones.
Whatever your individual circumstance, a personal retreat will give you time away from your set routines to re-source yourself and see it with a new perspective.
People have always needed time to withdraw temporarily from daily living in order to rebalance their mind and body. Eastern traditions have annual retreats; you begin to slow down and, without distraction, come closer to your inner self.
With guidance and stillness, beyond thought and feeling; the source of inner wisdom, perspective, insight, healing and compassion can be rediscovered, and you will have access to a support team, which includes counsellors and therapists of various disciplines.
The theory behind a group retreat is in essence no different to a personal retreat.
We can surround your group with care, prepare delicious wholesome food and leave you free to enjoy and explore your time together in the secluded and beautiful environment that is Mangreen.
With our experience in this field, we know how to provide the nurturing atmosphere that will enhance your retreat – we also have five luxurious and three standard ensuite bedrooms in the country house, which can be booked as private rooms or to share, so your experience is a complete withdrawal from day-to-day life allowing secluded downtime for you all to enjoy together.
We can accommodate between 5 – 14 people for that intimate and special retreat.
Light Centre Sanctuary
Our Light Centre Sanctuary is a centre for meditation, and today hosts both spiritual and wellbeing sessions – it is a meeting space offering a non-judgmental space.
One of the positive things happening in today’s world is a groundswell in grassroots spirituality, a spirituality that is neither competitive nor claiming to be the ‘right way’, a spirituality that embraces and values a diversity of paths, whilst honouring the universal.
Mangreen enables the deepening of this through its programme of events which include for example; yoga and raki and the addressing of issues like mental health, stress, anxiety issues and wellbeing – both personal and business.
