Life has soulful moments:
The truth at the bottom of words.
The swirl of tea leaves in transparent water.
The deep smell of sandalwood.

So often we feel that these moments are beyond us, that somehow they are gifts from a vast source that eludes us. We, at MANGATA, believe they are gifts of mystery and grace, but we also believe that—with intentionality—we can cultivate more of these moments. Our GATHERINGS are beautiful organic experiences of coming together to nourish and stoke the soul. They are serious and fun, sacred and celebratory. We invite you to join us.

Mangata 2019 | Distillation

A time for rest and reflection, the New Moon is especially powerful when it coincides with perigee—the point in the moon’s orbit when it comes as close as it possibly can to us on Earth. The second annual MANGATA gathering will take place at Bloomsbury Farm on Sunday, September 29 in the wake of the previous evening’s Super New Moon. Together we will explore the question What is the power of distillation? Our gathering, which will begin in the day and end in the evening to signify transformation and the movement into peace, will include numerous opportunities for discovery.

Our aim is to come together to explore, to find meaning and to experience delight. Each woman will leave with her own beautiful satchel of distilled goodness.

Mangata 2018 | Nourish

On the new moon of Sunday, September 9th, 2018 as late summer moved into early fall, we gathered at Bloomsbury Farm to explore the question How do we nourish the soul? A steady, cleansing rain fell while we enjoyed an afternoon of communal pondering, conversation, and aromatherapy followed by a walking meditation and fireside tea ceremony.
