from our guests

Sangsurya has been built with such love and you can really feel it.

Louise

I was blown away by the quality of the workmanship that’s gone into Sangsurya. The detail, the care that’s been put into it. I’ve had a wonderful time on my retreat and met so many fantastic people.

Sangsurya is so beautiful! All the unique furniture, the plants, the mosaics and the story of how it has been created and nurtured for us to enjoy is so special.

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. It’s a place where people can come to return to centre. 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.

Heather

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.

Flint

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.

Isabel

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.

Sophie

Sangsurya is a really good place to come and rest.

Sangsurya is a place of absolute nourishment. It offers you a place to be free and explore an inner journey. 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. You can feel the forty years of heritage that’s gone into the making of this place. 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. Many people have come here from all over the world, drawn by the teachers who are invited to teach. 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. There are so many communities, including humans that call this place home.

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.

Marnie

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.

Giuliana

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.

Jesse

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.

Adri

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.

Samantha

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.

Steve

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. We’re really looking forward to coming back. I love the rooms. Each room is completely unique and they all have their own flavour. Everyone has their own little private home and that’s important when you’re coming together to do group work.

Jen

Each room is a cocoon within a cocoon. And the food was divine. Come! You will enjoy!

Steve

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, when we were asked where people could do our retreats in Australia we had to say 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 has is unique. It’s decorated with so much love. It’s a bubble of beautiful energy, almost like a temple in the rainforest. I highly recommend Sangsurya as a retreat centre. The facilities are perfect. If you’re looking for a place to run a residential course this is it. There are other facilities in the area but none like this. I highly recommend it.

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.
