Mandala Garden brings art, yoga and nature together.

Mandala Garden Summer Camp gives you the skills to integrate mind, body and the natural environment.

Mandala Garden allows time for reflection, discussion, physical activity and creativity/ personal expression in a safe environment. Respect for and a deeper understanding of the individual and the environment is at the heart of what we do.

Participants connect body and mind through yoga and mindfulness practices. They connect self to nature by learning organic methods and outdoor skills in the organic garden and ancient woodland. And they connect to their creativity through the artistic process using natural materials found on-site.

The camp's guides, Eilis, Pam and Tom, each have over 15 years experience in their repsective areas of art, yoga and nature.


Ballin Temple Nature Sanctuary, near Ardattin, Co. Carlow, is nestled in the Slaney Valley along the River Slaney. The Ballin Temple estate has been managed sustainably for over 15 years. Activities take place within the walled organic garden and surrounding woodland.


Monday 11 July - Friday 15 July
