    • Madreya Das

      Madreya is the founder and head manager of the Krishna Village. He came to the Krishna farm in 2010, taking over the farm gardens to produce fruit and vegetables for the temple. Having managed big events like the Sydney Yoga Expo and the highly successful Govinda Valley retreat previously, he soon developed a vision beyond the gardening side of things and founded the Krishna Village, building additional accommodation, an outdoors kitchen, and other facilities. His main interest these days revolves around raw food, detox, and optimum health, so healthy nutrition is one of the main areas.

    Nestled in the foothills of Mount Warning, in the heart of the Northern Rivers of New South Wales, the Krishna Farm, New Govardhana, is a 1,000 acre certified organic property built around one of Australia's most beautiful Hare Krishna temples. The tranquil, spiritual setting comprises orchards, veggie gardens, cows, horses, streams, and swimming holes in abundance.

    The Krishna Village is located half way between Byron Bay and the Gold Coast, about 30 minutes inland from the Pacific Highway. The closest town is Murwillumbah, where several bus services stop on their way to and from Byron Bay, Brisbane and the Gold Coast.

      "I had the most relaxing time at the Krishna Eco Yoga Community. The yoga was excellent, with a variety of teachers and style, and the atmosphere created at the village is one of kindness, calm and generosity towards each other. The place itself is beautiful, the food fantastic, and it is up to each of the participants to take part in yoga classes, talks and other activities. "

      "I stayed in Krishna Eco Yoga Village with my friend for a one week yoga retreat, and what a treat it was! Accommodation was clean and comfortable, the shower/toilet block was not far from my room, with showers which worked well. There was a convenient open plan kitchen with a large storage fridge, a large stove, kettles, and a toaster. The setting is delightfully picturesque, and the atmosphere friendly and calming. The three daily meals provided were vegan/vegetarian and it was delicious. The yoga classes were lively, non judgmental always, informative. For sure, I shall be returning."

      "I really enjoyed my stay at the Krishna Village Eco Yoga Community. After 7 month of traveling i felt kind of burned out and this was the perfect place to recharge my batteries and reconnect to myself. The accommodation is simple but very clean and absolutely sufficient. The people are awesome and the food is incredible. I enjoyed the different yoga styles which have been taught.For me I can say the 8 days changed my life. I look after myself even better and I am very keen on learning more yoga now. I can recommend this place with no doubt. I came out a relaxed and very happy Ines!"

The people are really friendly and that reflexes on all the travelers. My daughter didn't want to leave (she even got to milk a cow for her first time). Thank you very much Henrike and Mandrea!"

      "My partner and I had a truly magical experience at the yoga retreat. Even on our first day of being in the Krishna Village, we were feeling the benefits already. Fuelled with abundance of energy and overwhellmed with happiness and a sense of belonging so much, that I consider quitting my job and stay with them instead to volunteer. Krishna Village is the perfect escape from reality, really helps you bring back to earth and begin a journey of self exploration, reconnect with nature together with your body, mind and soul. It wa so refreshing to be sorrounded everyday by lush green rolling hills and the soothing sounds of nature. Permanently being in a meditative state from the amazing sorroundings. We really would go back in a heart beat and highly recommend it to everyone. Thank you to all the team and volunteers at the Krishna Eco Village Yoga Community, it was a vary special and memorable experience. "

    • Review by a traveler from Brisbane, Australia

      "This place is a gem, it takes you to a different dimension of living, there is an organic farm and almost all meals are prepared with fresh picked vegetables and fruits from the garden. Accommodation is sweet and simple, I stayed in a single room cabin and it was very comfortable, outside there is a leafy balcony where you can relax in serenity of singing birds. There are three Yoga classes a day, run by different teachers, international and locals, lots of workshops and short courses. Massage is quite good too, I had only one session with Claire and it was good, I heard that other massage therapist are very good too. The food is AMAZING! Pure heaven for all vegetarians, vegans and fussy gluten free-ers like me. There is a creek with aka a "Massage Rocks" , 30 mins walk or 5 mins drive from the village, Jacuzzi by nature in beautiful tranquil settings. For quiet time and meditation you can walk to the Lotus Garden, that is 10 mins walk from the village. Overall, it's a special place where I met wonderful people and created a space in my heart filled with harmony and good vibes."

    • Review by Roisin McSweeney from Victoria (Australia)

      "During Damien's time teaching permaculture, he was able to bring clarity to such a complex subject of knowledge. He was able to understand the level of knowledge of the students in the class enabling him to explain and teach in a way that is suitable to that level. He expressed passion for the topic and shared the many years of experience he has in permaculture in an easy and informative manner. He was also willing to take time to those that were unsure of any part of the course. He was accommodating and he made it a safe and exciting learning space for me and all others"

      "Damien did a fantastic job in teaching this PDC, though. He was on point for the entire class. He spoke eloquently and passionately. He knew all of the material without hesitation and provoked us all to thought and action. His presentation and knowledge base was a compliment to the course and I walked away with a deeper understanding and appreciation of Permaculture because of Damien's teaching and passion. "

    • Review by Helder Fernandes from Lisbon (Portugal)

      "I had the chance to meet Damien during my PDC in Jordan, 2016 where he was co-teaching with Geoff Lawton. He was objective, passionate, dedicated and with a lot of care for students, giving a good step by step thru design and always adding a personal and practical input of his field experiences. He showed good skills in managing not only class subjects and timings but above all human relations and its psycho-sociological delicacies. I foresee a good career with great success."

      "Damien used the designers manual, added facts, visual depictions and personal experiences to demonstrate the versatility and practicality of Permaculture. The ease and earnestness with which Damien was able to answer questions helped motivate and encourage budding Permaculturists like myself in our own personal journey. For me personally I really appreciated his accessibility outside of classes. Damien was always open for questions and would take time to explain answers. Damien is an awesome instructor and instrumental addition to the Permaculture movement.”"

      "One of the greatest gift that I gave myself was a one week yoga retreat stay at Krishna Village. This magical land allows me to connect with my true self and every beautiful being I have met there. I took two days Balinese massage course by Karen and Dee. They are wonderful teachers with special ability to love and heal. I can feel my heart is smiling when I think of them. Everything about it is amazing, the nature, the food, and the people. I left with my mind open and my spirit high!"

      "Krishna Village supports every aspect of Yoga practices, from the familial community to the healthy food al the way to the expertly taught Asana classes. The daily kirtan sessions have inspired me, as well as digging in the dirt and connecting with the Earth in the huge organic gardens. I have experienced a level of nurturing guidance here that can only be offered by devoted Yoga teachers. I am truly grateful for Krishna Village."

      "The Krishna Yoga community is a beautiful, inspiring green home away from home. I stumbled upon the Krishna farm as I was seeking a Yoga retreat and a week away from my hectic city life, although the yoga was gentle and cleansing, it was the community of beautiful, kind spiritual seekers, travelers and like minded souls that inspired me the most. The entire property is truly heaven on earth, set amongst the rolling green hills of the Northern Rivers and a short distance from the dramatic Mt Warning. The property is a sanctuary of bountiful vegetable gardens, shared community and dining spaces, a yoga hall, grazed paddocks and high on the hill, the temple of the Hare Krishna community. Guests can choose to pay for a Retreat, a daily fee which includes a daily meals (An incredible mix of raw and vegetarian/vegan meals shared in fellowship at the Hare Krishna temple), twice daily yoga practice, life coaching and spiritual dharmic talks, as well as the option for massage and healing therapies. Alternatively travelers, or WOOOFING volunteers can participate in karma yoga/ board in exchange for farming/ harvesting or gardening work. Accommodation ranges from shared dorms, single rooms, camping spaces and parks for a van. The community of transient travelers and the resident staff truly make the Krishna village a magical and transformative experience. Stay a week, a month or many months at a time, it will certainly leave a warm impression on your heart long after you go home..."

      "I visited Krishna Village for a week and attended a Balinese massage course. Both my stay and the course were amazing.The village and surrounding nature is so peaceful, I felt an enormous calmness as soon as I stepped out of my car. The organization and the people who live there make you feel at home straight away. The massage course by Dee and Caren was one of a kind; they are wonderful people and teachers and gave the participants the confidence to massage with their heart. The results were amazing. The Krishna devotees at the Temple are very friendly and open to tell you about Hare Krishna, without judging you if you have other viewpoints. And they know how to cook delicious food! All in all I had a unforgettable time and would love to visit this special place in the (near) future."

      "“Life Changing!” I went on a one week retreat expecting to do some yoga and relax. What I got was a profound spiritual awakening , on a piece of property that could be the garden of Eden. The retreat sits just at the bottom of the majestic mountain which houses the temple. With fruit and nut trees scattered all of the property one can never go hungry. We were fed 3 vegetarian meals a day that were lovingly prepared and delicious even for the most avid meat lover. The rooms were clean and fresh. Simple and rustic making me wonder what more could one need to live in bliss. What is really special about this place is how you are welcomed and embraced into a family of strangers who work together to create the absolute haven. The yoga and meditation were on another level that words could not describe. I will be back many times to this garden of eden as amongst strangers. I have never felt more at home."

      "“Great relaxing retreat!” I came for a one week yoga retreat to get away from city life. All the staff were really friendly and had a great warmth to them. The yoga teachers were the most advanced I'd met and had a wealth of experience in all kinds of different yogic styles. I learnt a great deal even from just a few classes. I really enjoyed the location (Yoga village) being on the cusp of rain forest and the sounds of the beautiful birds in the morning. The surrounding farmlands and friendly cows also added so much to the experience. The food was also amazing and I came out of it feeling as light as a feather."

      "“Best holiday destination in a long time”. This place has got it all: broad minded people young and old, green and lush surroundings, wholesome food, no distraction by luxury or nonsense, and most of all, something useful to do. I did the intensive weekend massage course and it was life changing. The trainers were supportive and encouraged us to develop our own style from the start. I love massaging and I had no idea! It's a life skill and I'm going to master it!"

      "I recently stayed at the Krishna Village and participated in the Intuitive Balinese massage course and it was amazing. The atmosphere of the village is calm and relazed with a great energy in an awesome setting being overlooked by Mount Warning. The accomodation is fantastic and the gardens are colorful and tranquil. The course was perfect and ran for 2 wholesome days with Dee and Caren being great instructors and awesome people. Whether you are seeking a career in massage, or just want to gain another life skill, the course is perfect with a lot of hands on experience. I definitely recommend the course, and looking forward to a career shift. the vegetarian meals were fantastic and it is such a friendly and inviting atmosphere. Eating at the temple was awesome. Thanks Krishna Village! I will be back with my family next time. Looking forward to attending the yoga classes and workshops."

      "The most perfect week! I've just spent a week at Krishna Village Eco Yoga Community over New Year and the whole experience was incredible! We'd start the day with an early yoga and meditation session, then wander up to the temple for vegetarian breakfast. We had time to relax before a workshop type event in the yoga hall, normally for a discussion where I have learned so much. Afterwhich, We would have a raw lunch with produce picked and grown from the farm. We had more yoga sessions at 5pm. We were served yummy dinners and then we went to bed. To top it all off, I've made some amazing new friends.Everyone should experience the Krishna Village. The world would be a much kinder and calmer place."

      "I stayed here for a week, basically to recuperate after illness. I found the atmosphere to be very quiet, healing and soothing. I slept so soundly in a room (away from the camp kitchen) looking out into bush or rainforest and awoken each morning by the stunning birdlife calls. As has been said before, this is not meant to be 5 star accommodation, but you have everything you need and management are obliging with any requests made. For me the cool air, natural environment, peacefulness and lush green surrounds were everything I was craving. The vegetarian food, I have to say, Im quite addicted now."
