Creating A Safe World Within Retreat

Friday 5th May – Monday 8th May

A three night wellbeing retreat with a difference, in the beautiful Byron hinterland with leading mindfulness expert and clinical psychologist Emily Toner.

Relax and unwind as you enter a warm, supportive heart-led retreat away from the busyness and responsibilities of day-to-day life. This retreat is an opportunity to rejuvenate, centre and connect, both to yourself as well as others, building friendships within a wonderful caring and non-judgmental community.

What to Expect on Retreat 

This is a retreat with a difference, with all of the usual retreat offerings: including daily morning yoga, daily meditation, delicious vegetarian meals, free time to be still or connect with others and evening sound healing sessions with live music, as well as participation in Emily’s unique ‘Be the Change’ Positive Psychology workshop series delivered over the course of three days.

“Be The Change” is a hands-on practical workshop series based on the premise that in order to make positive change in the world, we must first start with ourselves. It invites you to connect with who you are and what you stand for, while practising skills of mindfulness, self-compassion, Positive Psychology and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) for relating more skillfully to self-limiting beliefs, in service of the life you want.

The Location

Sattva Sanctuary is a stunning property nestled on ten acres of hinterland on Bundjalung Country, near the beautiful town of Burringbar, NSW. The sanctuary is very conveniently located 35 mins from the Gold Coast airport by car and 30 minutes to Byron Bay town centre. Sattva is home to lots of wildlife, including a chorus of birds and even the occasional Koala! The Burringbar mountain ranges surround the sanctuary from all three sides, bringing a special grounded energy to the place.
