What they say about the Mela

I’ve been coming for 11 years, always a refreshing start to the new year.

The mela is a 1 week tension-free retreat, another world.

A great way to get in touch with my spirit.

I enjoyed meeting up with old acquaintances, don’t have to worry or think too much, its like hanging out with family (one I don’t have at home).

The mela provides a rare loving space for children to be with adults together in workshops, work and play and this is really appreciated.

You have inspired me to become a better person.
