Govinda Valley Retreat Centre

Govinda Valley is a beautiful, natural and quiet retreat centre conveniently located on the South Coast train line 1 hour south of Sydney surrounded by the Royal National Park.  For those who wish to stay on-site, healthy vegetarian meals and multiple onsite accommodation options make it an ideal location to have a personal retreat while learning about Dignity Therapy.  

The workshop will begin 1:30 pm on Monday and end at 5 pm Wednesday.  Vegetarian buffet meals are included (breakfast/lunch/dinner for those staying at Govinda Valley, or lunch only for those simply attending the workshop).  We will have an optional bonfire Monday night to get better acquainted and enjoy the natural surroundings.  Yoga classes and massage are also available on request.
