The Song of the Soul

A women’s Spiritual Retreat with Ashtara
at beautiful Minnie Water, northern NSW

Friday, 24th July – Monday, 27th July 2020

During 2019 Ashtara spent five magical months at Minnie Water, a small and unspoilt hamlet beside the ocean in NSW, surrounded by national park. She is keen to share its beauty and mystique with you. July is a special time for observing the dolphins and whales journeying north, and for exploring almost empty secluded beaches, the ocean lagoon and tidal rock pools.

As 2019 was indeed a powerful year for many, 2020 is accelerating the pace of spiritual growth and personal empowerment. Because Minnie Water is such a peaceful village surrounded by nature, it’s a perfect place to relax, reflect and attune to the healing power of nature.

In a recent Arcturus transmission, Ashtara received the following message.

In times to come the healing power of sound and light will become well known. Vibrational healing will take the place of the methods practiced today. Everything in nature vibrates, and when resonance occurs between different life forms, harmony results. Dissonance causes disease. Stress is a killer.

You can imagine the human body as an orchestra, with the different organs vibrating at different speeds. When there is resonance between the organs, harmony and health result. Where there is dissonance, dis-ease results. So simple.”

The healing power of sound and light is the theme for this retreat.

Allow the deep power of sound to ignite a new dynamic perception of your soul’s true calling – your authentic power. Learn to use the gift of voice to harmonise your mind, body and spirit. Gift yourself with self-reflection time, a peaceful and beautiful natural environment, and nourishing food.

Each day you will experience:

  • Daily inspired teachings, meditations and sacred ceremonies
  • Opportunities to experience vibrational healing
  • Tuning the physical body and energy field
  • A journey back to your heart’s centre
  • Morning forest or beach walk, or swim
  • Eight nourishing vegetarian meals plus morning and afternoon teas
  • Free time to explore the beautiful surroundings, or just relax

Each evening, Karen will provide a healing sound bath. She also offers personal sound healing sessions during your free time. These tuning fork sessions need to be booked prior to arrival.

Numbers are limited due to the profound nature of this retreat, and to allow for individual guidance.
