“Come into stillness within for a renewed love of life!”
“Come into stillness within for a renewed love of life!”
Time to immerse yourself in the loving energy field, to find that place of stillness and peace, to rejuvenate and reconnect with your true nature.
Allow yourself to be deeply healed with a renewed love for life and your true purpose.
Enjoy a meaningful and empowering program tailored to this year’s energy and your soul’s calling, whilst being in the beautiful nature setting of The Monastery in the company of wonderfully heart- and like minded fellow retreaters.
This Reiki Retreat is open to anyone attuned to Reiki, any level and any lineage! So if you have a friend or colleague from a different lineage, they can come as well.
Remember spaces are limited, and so is accommodation and it is first come first served.
A variety of basic accommodation options including mostly single and a few shared rooms plus the Tree house, Hobbit house and more.
The Retreat starts Wednesday 22nd of November at 4 pm and finishes Sunday 26th of November at 4 pm.
We will send you more detailed information on what to bring, check-in time, directions etc. at least a month before.
Over the past 2 years we and the others attending have had some beautiful moments, from blessings by a butterfly; healing of an animal phobia thanks to a possum; coming into one’s voice, to deep insights of self, physical healing, many giggles and laughter and so much more. And there will be again many special moments connecting with Reiki and with other practitioners both familiar and new.
Some feed back from last year:
- “Thank you for creating a divine space, thank you for your inspiration and invitation to go deeper. Thank you for sharing your gifts and insights”
- “Wish I could spend my weekends with you all .Such an amazing energy that you all bring. Thank you for facilitating & just being you”
- You Guys Rock!
- “We just keep going upward together. Thank you Sonja and Keiron for beautiful facilitation, all was perfect.”
- ” I am so looking forward to next years Retreat already!”

Stroud Monastery is a wonderful peaceful venue, set in bushland just outside Stroud. There are two main building complexes just a few minutes stroll apart. The Main building has 16 wonderfully rustic rooms, a large kitchen and dinning area, a cosy lounge/library area (which we will use for some activities ) as well as a beautiful chapel which is still used today by the resident Sister). The other area is the Gunya Chiara a large and spectacular hall which will will use for most activities. In addition there are other rooms or cottages such as the tree house and the hobbit house in the bush.
Through the grounds are tracks to wander or sit and contemplate, there are also large grassy areas and a large dam- home to many more aquatic life forms.
The Monastery was originally built in 1980 for the Sisters of St Clare. It was built mainly of mud brick by volunteers from all over the Hunter Region. The main visionary for the project was one of the Nuns- Sister Angela, who prior to become a nun was a renowned sculptress, and the Monastery was a work of sculpture and Love.
“We built a mudbrick monastery and people come to it and pick up something that is imparted to them from the place …It’s got nothing to do with bricks and mortar …it was made from the earth … this place will live on whatever happens because love formed it”.
“I long to see writers and theologians, artists and students coming to spend time at Stroud to study and work and to join in the rhythm of prayer and worship.” (Quotes from the recent book “Sculptor of Spirit: Angela of Stroud.” Faith Read )
The monastery and it’s grounds have a beautiful peaceful and blessed energy, making it a wonderful place to reconnect with yourself, with others and with Nature.
As it states on the Monastery’s web site it is
“A place to contemplate the beauty of Christ & the beauty of creation; and to feel the stirring of the Spirit in your Soul.”
