During your stay, you will stay at the Ashram of the Rainbow near Nymboida, New South Wales. The yoga ashram took over two years to locate and purchase due to the stringent requirements that there must be no disturbance and complete privacy to practitioners. There is minimal land machine noise, road noise, and no neighbors. Just an occasional plane drifts over on its way along the glorious Australian coast so unfortunately not absolute silence all the time but pretty close to perfection. It is a beautiful, quiet, and secluded property with a two-storey house. Potoroos and rock wallabies jump past at night as the stars light up the crystal clear sky to the howl of a dingo, fruit bats sweep in, cicadas hum, goanna’s visit, tiny ants march in lines as kookaburras sing Waltzing Matilda, and one is swept into another realm of the Australiana bush dream-time journey.

The beautiful two-story house includes a veranda, a kitchen, a dining area, a yoga, and a meditation area. There are three simple guest bedrooms that surround a central lounge, where only up to four private guests will have to themselves in your very private retreat - you can get to know each other and make friends for life. The two single rooms have their own balcony overlooking the forest and have wooden floors and cupboards and there is space to do your practice in your private room. The upstairs lounge is a place to meet, relax, read from the library and do yoga. There is also a large fireplace for cuddling up on cool winter nights.

The ashram is nurtured by a garden, forest eucalypts, and sub-tropical rainforest blended into nature. The ashram runs on solar power and the water is pure from the mountain rains. Organic vegetables and fruit are grown on site. %You can swim naked in the idyllic pond and sunbathe naturally during hot summer days. You will not see another soul apart from those here. Your privacy will be respected and you will be in harmony with nature in a sustainable yogic environment. There is a no mobile phone policy, and please do not bring a mobile, computer, laptop, or tablet. Your retreat is designed to have a break from these devices. Welcome to paradise!

Program

For this transformative retreat experience to get away and find time for yourself alone, you will enjoy different activities like yoga and meditation sessions, spiritual educational classes, and meditational guided bush walks. This is done in a protected safe environment where the focus is on divine bliss and love where you can really get to know your teacher and the few other guests here and make friends for life.

You will also enjoy a holistic massage, zen watercolors and oils class, spiritual healing satsangs, and vegan or macrobiotic and raw food nutrition lessons - all included in the package. You will enjoy daily delicious vegan or raw food meals and be one of the family staying in a gorgeous two-storey pole house made out of natural sustainable gum trees and solar powered in Australia surrounded by deep forest for hundreds of kilometers in one of the most remote regions on the planet selected to give you the experience of your life.

Unification Organisation for Collective Ascension, known as UOCA, will help you to find the new spiritual superhuman that is inside of you by ascending you from materialism and descending you to who you really were before civilization divided and disconnected you from your true primal self and so allow you to become liberated and one with your true inner nature. The program is one-to-one, small groups of generally two to six people and very personal.
