    Mandali retreat center opened in March 2017 and is located on a one-hour's drive north of Milan in Italy. It is situated 850 meters above sea level, high on a hill with a stunning view of the lake, the Lago d'Orta.

    Mandali is blessed with a quiet and serene location and is easily reachable by plane, car and train service. The venue is a one-hour drive away from Milan-Malpensa Airport (MXP). Malpensa is served by many airlines, such as Easy Jet, offering inexpensive flights. Mandali has a complete support system to arrange pick ups from and to the airport and train station.

    The fully equipped spa area is available for all guests. Mandali has an indoor swimming pool and outside Jacuzzi, both heated and naturally treated. From them, it is possible to enjoy the amazing lake view and have the sense of swimming on top of the mountain. There is also a Swedish dry sauna.

    There are different room types, varying in the number of beds, view on the lake or village, bed size, balcony and fire place. All rooms have their own private toilet and shower.

    Energy Awareness

    Move beyond limitations, allow the old paradigm based on past conditioning and disempowerment to fall away and effortlessly co-create a new reality based on compassion and awareness. This week long program will give you the tools, the awareness and the ability to gently disengage your energies from old, destructive patterns and begin to create a new reality for yourself, your family, and the community. The retreat offers a unique blend of teaching, clearing exercises, yoga, meditation, and silent time with Eric Dowsett, founder of the energy clearing method.

    This program is dedicated to exploring and strengthening your awareness around who and what shows up in your life and why. As your ability to understand the dynamics that create your experience increases so does your ability to make fundamental changes. Add to this mix the intelligence of the compassionate heart and this union of noticing and embracing provides an energetic shift releasing old charge from your personal energy system and the spaces you inhabit.

    You will be guided in applying and integrating a revolutionary simple and practical way of dealing with life so you feel grounded, whole, healthy, vital, complete and self-empowered. This retreat is open to all those who seek to move beyond past limitations.


    Eric will provide you with in-depth knowledge and understanding of the underlying mechanisms that initiate and perpetuate limiting belief patterns. These insights are very helpful steps in making friends with the Self, so it can return to a useful and helpful state, no longer needing to control things from a very contracted place. Sharing old wisdom and new insights mixed with his own experiences, Eric presents a unique and liberating way of being in the world based on awareness and compassion.

    The Paradox is Life's Logic

    Your conditioned mind has led you to believe that you have to understand a problem and to do something in order to achieve change. The paradox in clearing is that the less you 'do' based on your limited understanding and the more you notice and let be change occurs all by itself in a way you could never imagine.

    In this program, delight yoga consciously creates an environment in which you can relax and wind down. This allows you to be more pro-active and creative than ever before, coming from a place of clarity and flow, rather than from fear and contraction. You will lose the need for 'protection' and feel more grounded in dealing with who and what presents in your life.

    Energy Clearing

    There will be many different clearing opportunities throughout the week varying from personal clearings in pairs and groups, clearing yourself, remote clearing and small group sessions. You will explore the energies of the buildings, the land, and the surroundings to further develop your awareness and sensitivity of the impact space and the environment has upon you, clearing as required.


    Spending time in silence allows you to notice more and become aware, a pre-requisite for clearing. Throughout the week, there will be silent periods during the day including some silent meals and silence during clearing exercises.


    The program will include various meditations, including sitting, guided, walking, a Japanese temple meditation, and writing meditation.


    In this retreat, yoga classes are offered twice a day to support the release of energetic charge and reconnect to the body and breathing. Yoga practice is very supportive in the process of noticing where you are contracted, hold charge and encounter boundaries.

    • Eric Dowsett

      Australian-based author and teacher, Eric Dowsett, has been sharing 'clearing', changing the way people view themselves and their relationships to the environment for over 24 years. His compassionate presence allows a safe space to relax and let go. Eric's unique language combined with his clear, energetic, and lighthearted presence creates the perfect environment to let this understanding in on a very deep level. Learning first hand from the source is an opportunity not to be missed!

    This yoga retreat will take place in Mandali Retreat Center, Italy.
