Forest Dweller Workshop 17th-19th September 2021

Walk the path into the forest and join with others who are ageing consciously – a workshop for those aged 50+.  Set in a stunning venue in Western Creek Tasmania.

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.


Join Mantradharma/Alison Mac Taggart for a weekend of being in community with others who are exploring  the third stage of life. This phase in life is known in the ancient yogic philosophy as Vanaprastha or Forest Dweller – the time when a person retires to the forest and gradually gives up worldly life and focuses 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 workshop focuses on how we can age with awareness and integrate our intentions to address our inner needs while maintaining a commitment to external obligations.  Join Mantradharma, Karuna Mitra and Sangita for a weekend of inspiration, exploration and new insights. This retreat is being held in the tranquil and beautiful Atma Darshan centre in Western Creek, Tasmania.  Prices vary from $435-$505 inclusive of all retreat sessions, meals and accommodation and stunning setting.  Concessions and early birds apply.
