Intro: I'm a long-time lover of the outdoors. I worked at the Headlands Institute and NOLS. Now, I'm a consultant and professor of Social Entrepreneurship. I have two special boys, ages 14 and 16 who also love the outdoors. Mocha the dog is our mascot!
Amazing soulful spot. We loved out 4 day, 3-night stay. Mandala Spring was quiet, beautiful, and rejuvenating. We were concerned that it might be too focused on spirituality. It wasn't -- the lack of focus on alcohol and meat draws a lovely crowd of families and people visiting for a wonderful retreat from the madness of urban life. The pool, the pond, and the river were magical!
