We would like you to meet the team at Mana
The founders and trustees, who live on the land are still very much involved with the vision of Mana which they have held since they built the first buildings in 1987.

Sol and Penelope have developed “Waimana Spa” on the land with its combination of Spa treatments, bodywork and psychotherapy.
Their work is often integrated into the Mana courses and treatments are available to course participants and people on personal retreats. Sol has a number of courses scheduled around the globe, for more information on his work: click here to visit his website
