Retreats and Volunteer Weekends
Although there wasn’t an event with Prem last September, approx 100 people came from around Australia and as far afield as Canada, the UK, Israel and New Zealand for 9 days. Volunteers worked for appox 4 hours a day, and then enjoyed the offerings of yoga, Qi-jong and videos in the afternoons, as well as time to rest and take in the beautiful environment. The days ended with music and good food, with the highlight on the final evening a party at Dayas.
“I had the best time ever… loved the Wallabies, full moon, accommodation, the yummy food at Daya’s, the coffee at Jacaranda… the oats at the farm, helping out at the pavilion food venue…OMG the salads and dressings were delicious….and I had the best time ever with Emmie, Jane, Maria, and Jo being so helpful….I loved the videos, knowledge reviews, yoga, crystal bowls, back yoga and just being there among the most BEAUTIFUL people. I loved being part of the choir too……many thanks to all I haven’t mentioned ” Sept 9 Days Attendee
