ABOUT BYRON BAY
Known as Cavvanbah by the local Bundjalung and Arakwal nations, this is translated to ‘meeting place’.
A place to chill out, reflect, dress casually, feel free. Byron Bay has been a sacred healing, birthing area for thousands of years; a place of higher initiation and part of the major song-line that crosses Australia. To this day, there are gatherings, sacred ceremonies, birthing rituals, healing circles, dancing and music in the streets.
Your Retreat begins…
After arriving on the shuttle from the airport, we will meet together for a fresh juice before gathering at Byron’s famous Lighthouse on the most easterly point of Australia’s mainland.
You stay in a fabulous airy stylish timber floored 4-star room. Soak up the sun by the pool or pop on over to the gorgeous beach, less than 2 minutes walk away. Visit the sauna, steam room and plunge pool.
Each morning, nourish yourself with a delicious breakfast from a selection of freshly cut fruit, cereals, croissants and freshly brewed coffee and local teas. How wonderful not to have to cook for a week!
At dawn, Cape Byron is the first place on this continent to receive the sun’s rays. These rays blend with the giant crystal that forms the peak of Sacred Wollumbin (Mount Warning), the highest mountain close to the most easterly point of Australia.
Wollumbin sends the sun’s rays across to the centre of Australia, to Uluru, the heart centre of this nation and the Third Chakra Centre of our Planet.
Gather for a Welcome Ceremony and picnic lunch at a special Sacred Site, where the head of the Rainbow Serpent begins. Feel the sense of belonging as we are Welcomed to Kuntri by the Traditional Custodian with a smoking and smudge ceremony, traditional songs, didge, story-telling and traditional dance performance.
Visit Sacred Womens area (women only) and participate in Sacred Water Ceremony. Also experience a powerful Fire Ceremony as you offer up those pains and doubt for transmutation.
Interspersed with all we experience, there is time to relax, rest and have me-time.
Swim, sunbathe and receive a delicious one hour massage from one of our favourite masseuses. Explore your wildness with free-form dancing.
Hop on a small boat and come whale watching in the Bay – what an euphoric experience that is! We also go kayaking and are most likely to be visited by wild dolphins who come up to us – so much fun! Exhilirating! (Weather permitting).
Learn about local traditional culture as we meet with Aboriginal Elder for a fascinating tour of the area.
Delight in the colour and creativity at the famous monthly Byron markets.
Share in group circle while being soothed in a bubbling spa bath.
Because Wollumbin, known as Cloud Catcher or Weather-maker, is the highest point, close to the most easterly point of Australia, Cape Byron, it is the first place on mainland Australia to receive the sun’s rays.
It is said the tip of the mountain has an enormous crystal and sends the suns rays across to Uluru, the heart centre of the continent. This is of great importance culturally, as the sun is the source of energy and life.
An ancestral ceremonial and initiation site, Wollumbin is sacred to the Indigenous Peoples of Australia.
Wollumbin known traditionally as Wollumbiny Momily (Mt Warning) Caldera is a volcanic rim forming the largest extinct shield-rim volcano in the world, which last erupted 22 million years ago. This is the oldest link to the original supercontinent, Gondwanaland, and makes for incredibly lush, pristine rainforests and clear mountain streams, and ancestral wisdom
And then ….
Gather together for our Closing Ceremony and give thanks for our blessed time together, honoring each one who has reflected back to us, a part of ourselves. As we do this, we radiate our love out to all That Is.
We celebrate our coming together, out on the town, with a Farewell Dinner. Then settle in for a sweet night’s sleep, listening to the sound of the waves on the shore so close by. Breathe in that fresh salty air, so you awaken rejuvenated and fresh, ready to start a new adventure as you heading for home.
