New Revelstoke spiritual retreat Monashee Mandala

New spiritual healing retreat Monashee Mandala opens on the Begbie Bench area

Monashee Mandala, a new healing retreat in the Begbie Bench area, is the creation of Heather Sproule and friends.

The beautiful centre opened for a 10-day series of workshops starting on the winter solstice. They included Yoga, meditiation and presentations by healing  facilitators.

The centre is a 30-foot-wide circular, 24-sided retreat featuring a natural cedar ceiling, a cork floor and stunning, tranquil forest views towards Mt. Cartier across the Columbia.

“We’re hoping to bring all the facilitators in the area together to teach people how to cope with the stresses of living right now, during this transition to a new level of consciousness and living a more holistic lifestyle,” Sproule said. “[It’s about] giving people tools so they can help themselves.”

Sproule has taught Yoga in Revelstoke for about 10 years, and is currently studying Ayurvedic medicine.

The Mandala is a  by-donation community centre for those interested in spirituality and is not operating as a business. She hopes the centre can help grow the local spiritual community.

“There’s definately a very large community of people in this town who are interested in a more spiritual lifestyle, when they have the time for it. I think that over the next little while it will come into fruition,” she said.
