from our guests

Sangsurya is the jewel in the Northern Rivers. It’s so nurturing and green. It’s silent, it’s quiet, and it’s in nature. Coming here on retreat has been an absolute blessing. Come and enjoy, explore and be a part of this incredible place.


How special it is to be in a native part of Australia with the rainforest and the birds and the natural beauty. Sangsurya’s commitment to being a place for healing makes it really special. I feel so blessed to have spent six days here in a place that’s whole hearted and allows me to then go out and create a better world.


Sangsurya provides a ground for people to explore themselves and grow in ways that are really hard to achieve in other spaces. The kind of experience I’ve had here I haven’t had anywhere else.


I’m a doctor in Sydney, so my job is all about healing. Sangsurya is a place where I can come and relax, connect with nature, do my own healing and go back to my community and be the best doctor I can be. After having spent 5 magical days at Sangsurya, I cannot wait to return. It’s a magical place.


I feel so at peace, so calm and relaxed at the end of my retreat, ready to be the best version of myself out in the world. It’s a beautiful place to dive deep and go within, and embrace the beauty of this land. I highly recommend coming and staying.


Sangsurya is a place of absolute nourishment. The outside beauty helps you to reflect on your own inner beauty. The treasures that unfold before your eyes, both internally and externally, are priceless. Sangsurya is a glorious part of the planet that has been thought about and created with care, devotion and love for all of us to enjoy.


Sangsurya is unique, it could never be recreated. All the years of people doing retreats here give it a very special atmosphere. Just to be here brings a sense of peacefulness and being free from our busy world, with all its worries and concerns. With the rainforest and the ocean, there’s an ecology here. I’ve seen water dragons, a huge array of birds, and all kinds of insect life. This ecosystem has been created with a lot of sensitivity and awareness of what is native in this place.


As soon as I arrive here, I can feel my system settle. The setting inside the bush and the rainforest overlooking the ocean creates the most serene feel and helps you fall deeper inside yourself. It’s quiet, it’s peaceful. It’s a beautiful place for people to come for refuge.


I really appreciated waking up to the shining diversity of birds each morning. Stunning! The silence and the space to notice such careful attention to detail like having a yoga deck that faces where the sun and the moon rise over the ocean is really special.


A perfect sanctuary where you can come to do deep healing work. Even if you want to just come and bliss out with your loved one, you can do that too.


We were totally blown away by the surroundings. From the moment we walked into the space we felt completely nurtured and relaxed. A very homely and non-commercial space, perfect for the work we were doing.


Unique, very natural surroundings looking out to the ocean. The birdlife is beautiful. You just feel very naturally at home here. The main workshop space is very grounding.


We’ve been travelling to Bali for years for various retreats and to discover there is this amazing place right here on our doorstep that we had no idea existed is a gift.  Each room is a cocoon within a cocoon. And the food was devine. Come! You will enjoy!


It really does feel like heaven on earth here. You get the beautiful sunrise over the ocean and the plants and flowers and birdlife are abundant. I’ve seen rainforest birds here that I’ve never seen in the surrounding areas of the Shire where I’ve lived for many years. It’s such an incredible place to come and do anything, meditation, yoga and so on. It’s a container that can hold all of it.


I’ve been running courses all around the world for thirty-five years. I was amazed when I came across Sangsurya. After doing retreats in Bali I felt like I was coming back to Bali but in a different place. Previously, we thought there was nowhere that offered the love and the care and the nurturing space that we required. But here it is! Every building, every room is unique. It’s decorated with so much love. It’s a bubble of beautiful energy, almost like a temple in the rainforest.

The nature is just so exquisite. Coming out of the group room and every day and seeing the flowers and the birds and the beautiful plants - it’s such a compliment to what we’re experiencing here. There’s just so much here. Very grateful. We’ve had a beautiful week.

I enjoyed my time at Sangsurya. The retreat leaders are welcoming and set a beautiful tone to the retreat. The rooms are comfortable and peaceful and the sessions provided me a lot of value. I’m leaving feeling rejuvenated.


Five days and nights where I experienced the awe of Sangsurya. The program is perfectly pitched at awakening the senses and deepening insights and personal wisdom.


At the end of five and a half days I feel nourished on all levels and filled with gratitude. Ready to return home with new eyes and an open heart. Thankyou.


This retreat offers a well-designed combination of physical, emotional and spiritual upliftment – from nutritious food, to movement meditations, to insight enquiry, devotional singing, crystal bowls healing. Truly a Signature experience. I definitely want to do it again.


The Signature retreat was the most beautiful life changing experience, very meaningful. Thank you.


Sangsurya is a jewel-like presence offering a supportive, gentle nurturing in our journey of healing and growth to face the challenges both individually and collectively on the planet during these times.


Thankyou for the amazing opportunity to take a break from the world and spend dedicated time with such wonderful teachers.


Sangsurya was a blessing I didn’t know I needed. I expected to come and relax and feel more at peace, but what I got was so much more. The serene energy was amazing – it’s hard to describe. I would recommend anyone come here to discover themselves and feel more at home in nature.


Sangsurya and the Signature Retreat offers a truly unique and sacred space for healing and renewal in the 21st Century.


Thank you. This was such a restorative, happy and centering week. I felt my heart open and had the first true experiences of joy in a long time.


The Signature Retreat offers a wonderful space to discover your own inner supports and peace. I recommend attending this retreat no matter where you are on your journey.
