April 4th – 9th, 2025

To live in the present moment is a miracle. The miracle is not to walk on water. The miracle is to walk on the green Earth in the present moment, to appreciate the peace and beauty that are available now.

Thich Nhat Hanh

The Heart-Mind Qigong Retreats are set amidst the forested beauty and refreshing sea breezes of Sangsurya, a beautiful eco-friendly retreat overlooking the ocean at Byron Bay. Sangsurya is a spiritual place of meditation, reflection and rejuvenation. It is world renowned for its peaceful ambience and healing energy.

Shirsha Marie has created the Heart-Mind Qigong Retreat as a unique opportunity to learn comprehensive and empowering methods of energy development and meditation, for living a vital and conscious life. In this retreat, she’ll lead you through a range of transformational body-mind energy techniques for grounding, revitalising and integrating mindfulness in daily living, both in movement and in rest.

“This is a great retreat which I highly recommend. It helped me release years of built up stress and anxiety and taught me many mindfulness and qigong techniques to take home with me.
This retreat generated so much joy, positivity and relaxation.”

Jenny
