Sanctuary of Self Byron Bay
  • Join us as we explore the mind, body and soul connection to sensuality and self-love on this 5 day, 4 night retreat in the magical hinterland of Byron Bay. 
  • With a nourishing blend of mindful morning practices - exploring various meditation techniques and feminine movement (including my signature Sensual Yoga classes), as well as soulful workshops, group discussions and sacred ritual - this retreat will leave you with a deep sense of self-worth, renewed self-belief and contentment.  
  • As women, we have been brought up in a world that values the masculine over the feminine and as such, many of us are disconnected to our femininity. Throughout this long weekend escape we will explore and awaken the divine feminine within each and every one of you.  
  • This intimate retreat will offer you a chance to not only connect in deeply with your true and authentic self, but it will also offer a chance to cultivate community as we share and create connections with each other through self-love activities, heart-centred discussions, movement, soulful practices and meditation.  
  • A beautiful balance of inner work and space to rest, you will have the opportunity to spend time on your own, exploring the sanctuary grounds and to connect deeply with the other sisters on retreat with you.  

Our home for the 5 days, nestled in the hills of Byron Bay’s hinterland, is a sanctuary which evokes calming serenity. With lush green grounds, a private lake, luxe swimming pool, sun deck, garden boardwalk, views of distant mountains and an expansive sky, it is the perfect space to relax and take some well-deserved time for yourself.

  • About our Villa 
  • Upon arrival, an ancient gong suspended over tumbling water, the sandstone archway and an aqua glimpse of the infinity pool encourage a casting off of all stress, to be replaced with deep calm and perhaps a quiver of anticipation. You’re drawn into the castle-like features of the living room with massive timber beams, a pitched roof constructed from old bridge timber and a huge sandstone fireplace that reaches all the way to the rafters. All around are signs of creativity and the hand of an artisan in love with their craft – be it in pieces from Africa, or India, or the locally created medieval light, the ten-seater table made from recycled wood and iron bolts. The living room spills out through antique Spanish doors to an expansive timber sundeck surrounded by a luscious tropical oasis and the beach-entry pool with its wharf jetty. Adjoining the pool deck the outdoor thatched Gazebo beckons with another huge fireplace, perfect for ceremony.
