Peaceful Mind retreat in beautiful New Zealand

The “Peaceful Mind” retreat is one of two retreats that writer and retreat leader Dr Stephanie Dowrick leads annually at the glorious Mana Retreat Centre in New Zealand.  This year’s dates are 4-7 October 2012. You are most welcome to book extra days on either side of the retreat.

Mana Retreat Centre is a dedicated retreat centre about three hours south of Auckland on the famed Coromandel Peninsula. (Shuttles can be arranged. Ferry is also available.) It is impossible to imagine a lovelier landscape and the beauty and inspiration of the physical world is matched by the care and kindness of all who work there. Retreat life allows a far gentler and more healing pace than “ordinary” life, combining as it does highly supportive spiritual teaching, reflection, walks, rest, meditation (with guidance), delicious meals and optional body treatments including watsu and massage.

Costs are modest. Places are limited. Rewards can be transformative. Stephanie Dowrick has been teaching at Mana for 11 years and regards it as a spiritual haven and home.
