May 2020: Life is all we have, and all we are. This simple truth has been awakened in all of us, both individually and on a global scale. 2020 is a year which will be remembered in the evolution of mankind. Never has the desire to feel whole, healthy and vibrant risen to the surface of our consciousness so powerfully; never has it become such an instant collective intent. We may each be at a different point on the journey but the preciousness of our planet and our need to protect both it, and ourselves, is set to become a worldwide human endeavour. China has an important role to play in the formation of the future. Progress, growth and wisdom are always born out of the darkest experiences. A portal for change has been created, one which SANGHA Retreat firmly believes should be harnessed for the greater good of mankind.

May 2020: Studies suggest that Covid-19 has already increased our stress, anxiety and insomnia. Many of us are feeling emotional or depressed, yet nature is flourishing around us.
