Eat to live...


Your body and soul will be nourished with Shanti’s delicious and nutritious meals. With the utmost love and respect for animals and the earth, vegetarian meals are served. We strive to offer locally grown, Wolfe Island organic produce whenever possible and each year serve more and more from our very own Shanti garden.

Journey into the world of vegetarian food with culinary delights that will leave you totally satisfied. All meals, prepared and served with mindfulness and infused with Love, are a feast for the eyes and a delight to your taste buds.

Organic, shade grown, dark roast coffee is served in the morning and a variety of herbal, green and black teas are available throughout the day.

Shanti can accommodate a vegan, gluten free and dairy free diet. As our kitchen team is very small we are no longer able to accommodate specific dietary requests and food allergies, including nuts. Please do let us know in advance if you need a simple meal prepared for you (a whole grain and steamed vegetables). Of course, if you do have a severe, life threatening reaction to specific foods or nuts then it is absolutely necessary to inform Shanti ahead of time (2 weeks prior to retreat start date).
