Surrender to your dreams

Are you ready for something different in 2017?

Some rest and relaxation?
A healthier New Year's Eve & New Year?
To plant some seeds to make those dreams come true?
Open your creativity to a new level?
Let go of the drama and live the dream?
And step into 2017 empowered and full of peace?

If you want to change something you have to do something different.
Want to know how?
Come join me, Darshna Siva, for a wonder-filled Mindful Manifesting Retreat set in the fold of the beautiful Kenthurst countryside. Swami's retreat centre is situated on 60 acres of tranquil bush land a mere 55 minutes away from the centre of Sydney.

If like most people you have had one heck of a year, and you want to create some long lasting change in your life, relationships, career and home, then this is the place for you. The added bonus of the retreat is you will feel leaving wholesome and healthy, glowing with the richness of vitality to set-off on that new journey.
As we complete a 9 year cycle that kicked off in 2007, we will spend some time reflecting on our journey through 2016. In the sacred space and on sacred land we will have the opportunity to come to peace with that which is past and let go of that which no longer serves us.
The two days prior to NYE will be all about preparing to bring ourselves into the present and into empowered states so that we can actually visualize, embody and flow into the New Year with hearts and minds wide open. We are blessed with a Super Full Moon in Capricorn over the retreat to guide us to a more hightened sense of self, helping us to release the build up tension over the year and bring a hightened sense of lightness as we leave behind all that is not necessary.
There will be plenty of time to rest and release tension, full use of the pool and sauna, as well as the amazing natural beauty of the retreat center.

On the 31st of December we will hold a special program that will take us all the way into the New Year. Joining us will be Archaraya Rajan Sharma, a Vedic astrologer and astronomy lecturer as well as a yogi in laughter and kundalini yoga. See program details for more information.

If you are ready to step up into 2017, fully empowered for a new 9 year cycle that could release your potential for an amazing life, then there is no better way then to start here. BOOK NOW either transfer funds into the account stateed below in the Pay Into section or, email me at
