Walk the path into the forest and join with others who are ageing consciously – a workshop for those aged 50+. Set in the beautiful Bellingen Belfry Guest House.

Mantradharma has experience living as a forest dweller both in the community and at an ashram in Australia. She made the decision 7 years ago to give up her home, possessions and worldly engagements to go and live a simpler and less cluttered life at Mangrove Mountain ashram.

She has recently returned to living on the far South Coast of NSW and is re-establishing herself in community life while aiming to put into practice the insights she has gained while living at Mangrove. This has inevitably brought new challenges. Mantradharma is dedicated to sharing her insights with others and to inspire them to live more simply and consciously.

Known in yogic philosophy as Vanaprastha or Forest Dweller – a time when a person retires to the forest & gradually gives up worldly life to focus on their inner, spiritual world. Of course, for those of us living in modern times, it is not feasible or desirable to fully retire from life. This retreat will focus on how we can integrate our intentions to focus on our inner needs while maintaining a commitment to our external obligations.

Cost: IYTA Members price is Earlybird $540 (1st April), then from $570 with price depending on accomodation choice.
