I'm going to tell you all a big secret 🤫
40 minutes away there is an enchanting spiritual place called Govinda Valley. A place fully run by volunteers who provide and create the space for yogis, healers, women circles, warrior retreats, education workshops and more.
I yearned for something deeper - a deeper connection and understanding of myself/my emotions. Even within a week of being at Govinda Valley I felt more peaceful, aware and grounded. I have been given the space to breathe deeper, be loved, learn, and be raw.
I found Govinda Valley at a time when I felt completely lost, but it wouldn’t have seemed that way from the outside. On paper, I had it all – I was working for a budding tech startup in New York, living in my dream city with all of my closest friends, eating at fancy restaurants every night and going out every weekend.
When I first came, I had no idea what to expect; I had just quit a job up in Queensland, contacted the retreat to ask if I could come two months ahead of when I originally asked, and booked a flight in a matter of two weeks.
Are you thinking of volunteering with us and wondering what to expect? Here’s a first-hand account of what life is like here...
