What is a ManiStone

The centre is named after mani stones which are stone plates, rocks and/or pebbles intentionally placed along roadsides and rivers inscribed, often, with the mantra (prayer) Om Mani Padme Hum. Tibetan Buddhists believe that this mantra evokes a state of presence that is considered ideal for creating positive change in the world. They tell us the mantra will do this whether we say it, hear it, see its written form, stand near a mani stone, walk around it, or merely think of the mantra in any form at all.
The name ManiStone aligns with Ghandi’s powerful message “Be the change you want to see in the world”.
Through aligning with the divine aspect that exists in each of us, and supporting others to do the same, we experience profound well-being and in essence become living mani stones – changing the world through embodying and living our own personal mantra. This speaks to our collective intention as well being practitioners – both in how we want to live and how we serve our clients.

“When I was searching for a new home for my A Course in Miracles support group, Manistone was the answer. The location offers a neutral and central place where people can meet and feel the space is theirs. The Gathering Room is lovely, wood accents and beautiful colours making it airy and light, with a choice of floor seating or chairs, a kitchen to make tea and a small storage space for a few things. I love the space but what makes it even more wonderful was Dienna Raye’s flexibility in finding the right day and price that worked for me. She goes beyond what a typical landlord tenant arrangement provides. This is a perfect spot to transition your group or business from a home based one to a professional impressive environment.” ~ Julie Glynn Course in Miracles

ManiStone is my favourite place to facilitate workshops and group courses in Nelson. I really like working there. Dienna Raye holds the whole space in a way that keeps the energy high and clear. The room is bright and clean, and there are break-out rooms to work in as well as a kitchen. I’ve had some great experiences doing courses and workshops there. I highly recommend it. ~ Shayla Wright

True to the mission of the Wellness Centre’s mission statement, ManiStone has been a wonderfully supportive environment for me to grow my massage practice. Like a healthy family, we exchange ideas, encourage each other’s growth and generally enjoy each others company. The foundation of fostering a non competitive atmosphere holds true and a new way of creating business and support for our own self care is paramount. I can’t think of a better place to work and share my gifts. ~ Liz Babcox Lotus Thai Massage
