Retreat of the week
Mandali is a stunningly crafted retreat set on a high plateau overlooking Lago d’Orta in northern Italy with heart stopping views across to the nearby Swiss Alps. It’s designed to help guests disconnect from the pressures of daily life, switch off from technology, and find time for reflection and getting back in the flow. Come for a Mandali Experience retreat that combines different types of meditation, yoga and movement sessions with personal growth workshops and periods of silence, or attend one of the themed retreats that run throughout the year. Founded by two successful Dutch music festivals organisers who walked the spiritual path and wanted to build a retreat centre which would help people raise their consciousness, it’s a not-for-profit venture with an affordable premium experience ranging from dormitory accommodation to private suites.
