Images from our New Year Retreat 2015

Its on again this year!! Details are > here.

We were 35 people who took time out from our usual life for reflection, restoration and preparing ourselves for the new year ahead. From Saturday 27 December 2014 to Thursday 1 January 2015 we meditated, yoga-ed, ate well, rested, walked, swam, adventured a little bit, were supported by each others good company & laughed (a lot). 

At the end of our time together one of the participants wrote me this message
"Thank you for creating a real retreat for real people.
Thank you for making it affordable, flexible and always being so open.
This time has deepended my own practice. I am leaving this beautiful place feeling inspired, rejuvenated and STRONG :)
I've had some very profound moments that will stay with me always.
It's obvious you really care. You guys are the real deal and I will be recommending this New Year bliss far and wide!
Peace & Light"

This was not officially on our program. Some of the retreat participants really wanted to  meditate then watch the sun rise to greet the New Year. So we did :)  (Stanwell Park Beach NSW)

A lovely amount of Free Time

Everyday Yoga Nidra. Each day Purnima guided us with a 45 minute yoga nidra (deep relaxation). The benefits of this technique for relaxation and inner transformation are profound. 

We wish you a Happy & Healthy 2015
