Today, many people are fascinated by the prospect of personal development and the deeper connection to the awakening of the soul. Yet it is the resonance of love and all of its timeless qualities that seekers are often unknowingly searching for. 

The direct development of anahata chakra, the heart chakra, gives a joyful elevation of the consciousness. This awakening gives the practitioner an affective openness that gives life an entirely new dimension, a new framework in which to live. 

Many spiritual practitioners conclude that the direct experience of this consciousness gives a profound insight into the spiritual dimension and a revolution to their own personal filter.

The pure love of the heart is a gift in itself. A gift to ourselves, to our loved ones and to all of humanity. 

This retreat is designed to help those intent on commencing or deepening this journey and provide participants with the necessary tools to make this transformation a reality. 


The retreat program is specifically designed to assist in opening the heart through various yogic techniques such as hatha yoga, meditation, as well as discourses, poetry, music and other forms of spiritual mysticism.

During the retreat we examine the qualities that are intrinsic to the opening of the heart. These qualities include forgiveness, selflessness, self-acceptance, empathy, altruism, compassion and inner joy.

Through the connection of like minds and hearts, the resonance is greatly enhanced creating an avalanche effect and a higher vibration of energy in this spiritual atmosphere.

There will also be plenty of free time to enjoy nature and contemplate the tranquil beauty of Bribie Island.

Discover the inner freedom that can be found through this spiritual awakening.

Discover your heart and your own personal connection with the light.
