30 August - 2 September 2024

"When you do things from your soul, you feel a river moving in you, a joy.”

- Rumi

The second of two retreats with Mahasukha in our programme this year. An uplifting weekend of beautiful part-harmony soulful singing and mantra led by the inspiring Mahasukha. A joyful, meditative and devotional experience guaranteed to put a smile on your face and uplift your heart and soul. Beautiful harmonies, beautifully simple, simply magic!

“Probably the most beautiful and uplifting thing I have ever sung.

I felt afterwards that I'd had a deep spiritual experience. It was wonderful.” 

- Janet

As well as morning meditation, the weekend will consist of a rich variety of African, sacred, indigenous, folk and contemporary songs and chants. We will also chant devotional Buddhist mantras and perform mantra rituals before a beautiful shrine. Both song and mantra will be taught by Mahasukha in part-harmony and by ear, and he will accompany both with inspiring drumming.

All the songs and mantras have great depth, meaning and magic within them. The whole experience will likely inspire you and open your heart. You may even be moved to tears and experience great joy and bliss. There will be laughter, play and fun but also stillness, silence and peace.

"Your workshops are super healing. I always cry with ​joy.”

- Previous retreatant

Singing and chanting connects us more deeply to ourselves, to each other and to our ideals. We release those endorphins, raise our vibration and awaken to new energy, faith and inspiration. Together we create a magical harmonious whole - touched and blessed by beauty and the sacred.



Mahasukha is a singer, musician, arranger, teacher, soul coach and lover of all things soulful. He has been leading inspiring Soulful Singing workshops and Beauty of Mantra rituals with thousands of people for 20 years. He's in his element leading people in singing and mantra - bringing out the best ​in people with enthusiasm, sensitivity and encouragement, bringing people together in joy and harmony.

“Mahasukha has a talent for bringing people together through singing in such a way that everyone feels included, supported and encouraged, whatever their ability or temperament. He inspires and builds confidence in others, allowing them to achieve and experience something ​beyond what they thought possible.”

- Helen
