Byron Bay Retreat


As soon as I arrived at Sangsurya to run this year’s meditation and creativity retreat, I remembered how much this place feels like an escape. The bush setting immediately connects you with nature. The birdsong, the lush garden and the ocean in the distance set a scene of complete calm.


We were blessed once again with a beautiful group of women. All with open, generous hearts. It was just as wonderful as last year.


We spend our days meditating, doing qi gong and yoga as well as engaging in a creative activity (or two). We find time for a few walks and eat plenty of divine food.

But mostly, it’s about creating space. Taking time away from our busy lives to reconnect with stillness and joy so that we come back feeling completely restored.
