Escape daily pressures and connect with your senses.

Nirvana Wellbeing Retreat is a true sanctuary and home for accessible mind-body solutions which boost the individual’s capacity to restore health. Here you will find yourself amidst all that is serene and spiritual.

A scenic haven

Set amid acres of private farmland and rainforests, surrounded by World Heritage areas and national parks, at Nirvana Wellbeing Sanctuary you experience the ultimate peace of mind, mindfulness and rest immersion towards optimum health. Spending a week in this mountain sanctuary can help you cleanse your mind from heavy feelings that have been held within you for a long time. at the same time as you cleanse your body with plant-based food, local produce, ayurvedic treatments, yoga and relaxation therapy practices.

Here you end your sleepless nights, constipation, wind and bloating, as you move away from fast and processed food, short order chefs, alcohol and restlessness, and instead will have completely different sensory experiences filled from what is sacred, what is lasting, nature and spirituality. You will enjoy farm to table, plant-based food (suitable for vegans) that is all made in our kitchen and delicious. Our delicious and wholesome menu has been designed to increase your energy and elevate your mood, not your waistline.

To state the obvious, a retreat is not a conference or seminar – which can imply long hours of sitting and listening to long talks while shifting in your seat, days of breathing stale air without leaving the hotel, limp uninspired food in food warmers.

A retreat is also different to a resort or a motel, in that there are no maids making up your room and bed daily, and while Nirvana’s facilities include the classical Queenslander with some extraordinary views, furniture and fittings, we purposely strip away distractions such as flat-screen televisions and telephones in every room, so that you can get back in touch with nature, and yourself, and go deeper into the holistic material that is being offered. Retreatants experience hands-on experiential unlearning, creative renewal and rejuvenation opportunities in one of Australia’s most spectacular environments.

The moment you arrive, you have begun to receive the gift of being less busy and more available to your true self and inner peace. You don’t have to wait for your retreat to begin. You can enjoy the peace that you have already connected with. The beauty and gentleness surrounding you are all a part of your retreat. You can choose to participate in as much or as little of the activities as you wish. There is plenty to undo…and do, which you chose, and at your own pace. Empirical and theoretical education is coupled with an optional, daily program of practice, to let go, rest and dissolve into the unknown. Nurtured by nature, and community, just being on the mountain is a healing experience in itself that changes your life. If you’re looking for someone to change your life, look in the mirror. Your life is a sacred sanctuary. Take some time each day to nurture your heart and soul. The creative process blossoms when you tune out of the world and tune into your deeper self.Whether you’re new to retreats or a regular, a retreat will leave you feeling inspired to live a healthier, more peaceful and vibrant life.

As a place for rest and renewal along your life’s journey, Nirvana Wellbeing Sanctuary provides the ideal environment for physical, emotional and spiritual rejuvenation. It radiates positive energy. This is a place of wordless relationship with nature and the human spirit. In terms of spiritual refreshment, intellectual and emotional stimulation, Australian vitality and the peace, and repose of a great rural estate, Nirvana Wellbeing Sanctuary offers an exceptional setting for radical wellbeing. The environment exudes a sense of the wholeness of life and provides the context for a deep and potentially transformative learning experience. Here you will find rejuvenation and often, new direction. You will find that you have touched a source of inspiration and are reminded that there are others who share their deepest values about life and its meaning.
I was born and educated in India, at a time when the distractions and entertainments of today did not exist. It was a slower world, before the internet, computers, i-anything, television, DVDs, mp3s, blue ray, supermarkets, shopping malls and so many things that are part of the landscape we take for granted today.

Education encompassed Indian arts, culture, and a living, spiritual philosophy for a healthy mind in a healthy body; and for those who chose to pursue it, academia. Teachings and guidance from elders, sages, and gurus as part of normal life were the everyday sacred path of practice. Decades of such discipline and training have led me to a deep, spiritual understanding in the path of unity, wellbeing, and living peace, which I happily share as a teacher-mentor, author, and practitioner. The power of the practices I have developed to change people’s lives, heal and expand their abilities, and thus beneficially affect the world around them, has never ceased to humble and continues to inspire me.

The greatest guru is the practice itself. Aided by the power of collective practice and shared intention, I invite you to enjoy this unique opportunity to explore living peace and wellbeing at greater depth with me and my team. Principles, discipline, and devotion all guide you into deepening your experience. This, here, now is the journey. Come and join me.


Let our sanctuary
become yours.
