About Miraval

Miraval's Life-in-Balance Philosophy

Take a stroll through history along the lush grounds that have housed industrialists, clergy, writers, musicians, golfers, and culture lovers in Massachusetts. The central, hilltop Tudor-style Wyndhurst Mansion has overlooked the countryside for more than a century. 

Miraval is a digital device-free environment. We believe the journey to create life in balance begins with allowing yourself to be fully present and engaged in the moment.

Our intention in establishing a digital device-free environment is to support you in having the most rewarding and inspiring Miraval experience – and to give yourself permission to unplug.
