The story of Mandali

The founders of Mandali, Wildrik Timmerman and Wouter Tavecchio, welcome visitors with an embracing message


Beloved fellow travellers...

When we went to India on our first silent retreat in 2009, we had no clue of how profoundly this experience would change our lives. We were 30 years-old and we finally remembered who we really were, for the first time since childhood maybe.

Leading up to that time, we’d had many successes organising large-scale dance festivals, but although we’d achieved everything we ever dreamed of, we felt rushed, unsatisfied, and we were always looking for more.

We were the perfect examples of people chasing external happiness, only to attain it briefly before it left us longing for something new.

During our first experience of the power of silence in India, it took us a couple of days to slow down. But then we felt a deep inner silence and contentment emerged in us. We were in the middle of nowhere, with nothing to do, nobody to speak to and yet we felt happier than ever.

We know you may have already heard such a story. Perhaps many times, but we all recognise its truth – that the things we’re looking for are already within us.

We are born with love and joy in our hearts. Power, energy and stillness in our bodies. Clarity and peace in our minds.

This is why we created Mandali in 2017; to rediscover these essential qualities. Taking time for yourself is food for your soul. It helps you to shift the perspective from your person to your being and reminds you of who you truly are.

Mandali wishes to be a point of light; a spiritual sanctuary of peace that supports you in reconnecting with yourself and others. Our beloved team of teachers and every other member of the Mandali family is looking forward to hosting you during this important time of your life.

May you leave behind what you no longer need and may you receive what will help you to return to your heart.

Much love and appreciation.
