The Sanctuary offers a pure, inspiring atmosphere – a calm haven in which to rest, be nourished and recharge; participate in programs for spiritual nourishment, purification, healing, upliftment and the remembrance of Truth.

At Sacred Hearth Sanctuary you will find 35 acres of pristine nature bordered by a nature reserve, luxury accommodation, yoga, meditation, contemplation, nature connection, self-enquiry and ceremony, a freshwater dam for swimming, delicious nourishing meals, and daily seva (selfless service) to harmonise the faculties of head, heart and hand. 

We offer day, weekend, personal retreats and events for everyone, carefully designed to ignite deep transformation. Thai yoga massage, one-to-one sessions, and healing modalities also available.

Overlooked by the beauty of Mount Boogarem (‘Lore’ Mountain), we are situated only 10 minutes from Mullumbimby, beautiful swimming holes, the Byron hinterland, and markets, 20 minutes from the beach and 25 minutes from Byron Bay. At the Sanctuary you feel miles away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. We feel deeply humbled to share this piece of paradise with you!

Welcome to Sacred Hearth Sanctuary, into our home and into our heart. We look forward to meeting you and inspiring you to dive in, Let Love and Let Life!

“I would like to thank you once more for the retreat. It was so good to find that space where I can just be and breathe no matter what happens on an emotional level. I enjoyed the gentle flow of the exercises that enabled me to surrender to what was present at every moment. ​Thank you also for the silent walk in the beautiful woods and for your heart felt connection with the earth and your love of the rain nourishing it. It deeply inspired me and opened a new sense of communion with nature.” – Carine

“Thank you so much for such a powerful retreat on Saturday, it initiated some shifts for me in just a few short hours. I found it a very moving experience to share stories with the other women, especially in this stage of pregnancy. I also loved the exercises/practices that we did, thank you for holding it all so beautifully.” – Anna
