MANGATA /ˈmo:ŋˌga:ta/ noun

A Swedish term for  the glimmering  road-like  reflection of the moon on water. It is both real and a mirage. Deeply personal and also communal. The soulful moments of life are this way, too. Let us curate more of them together.

GATHERINGS

The purpose of MANGATA is to bring people together to inspire soulful living. We understand that Nature gives us regular times of rest and reflection—dusk, Sundays, the new moon, changes in the season—and our gatherings take place at the powerful intersections of these sacred times. Through communal pondering, movement balanced by stillness, ritual and learning, and always delicious food and laughter, we are able to explore new terrains, make new discoveries, and ultimately find new meanings for our lives.
