About Shunyata


Shunyata mean emptyness - and when the mind is empty, clarity is found and the heart leads and the power of love can heal 

Shunyata was opened in 2005 as part of Paru's commitment to assisting people to open their hearts and care for themselves (self love) so that they can be present in their daily lives.  She wished  she had a place like this when she was going through her own journey in Byron Bay,so getting together with colleagues brainstorming - came up with a unique retreat that truly works!!!!!

What a beautiful experience I had with Paru, my host. For a start the location is in a really quite, stop-in-time spot with a view of the ocean and boats and the garden, peaceful idealic surroundings for a retreat.

This was the most wonderful, healing, soul-soothing retreat I've ever experienced! It was truly nourishing and life-changing!

Finding this untouched paradise has been the best thing that has ever happened as I have
travelled the world and found so many places ruined and overtaken.  Even17 years on it has
just  become more beautiful, as everyone comments when they come.
It has many private spaces (including our amazing yoga deck) to relax and look out at the gorgeous bay and surrounding hills, lovely wild English gardens as well as a spa bathroom, modern kitchen, private bedrooms, treatment rooms and lounge.

At Shunyata you will find uninterrupted vistas of endless ocean, mood enhancing aromatherapy, holistic harmonizing rituals aimed at reducing stress and delicious conscious cuisine cooked with love including healthier versions of your favourite dishes.Most of all, all facets of the mind body approach are experienced to help rediscover your spark mentally & physically and to recentre yourself from your low level instincts driven by survival to your higher instincts driven by the power of love.

Our homes should be a safe, cozy, intimate space, offering a true home for ourselves and our loved ones. When Paru found Shunyata, she felt it brought her home to her true self. She looks forward to sharing this beautiful place with you, to assist your heart in finding its way home. 

If you have time to explore, there are many stunning coastal walks around Shunyata as well as three volcanic beaches just 10 minutes away. Paru also offers day excursions if you wish to get out and explore the surrounding areas.

The mornings we do yoga and the sessions and maybe a walk and the afternoons are for you to contemplate, write in your journal , sit on the deck overlooking the ocean or take a walk or sometimes we go to the gorgeous beach close by.  The evenings we  do a meditation, have dinner, watch an inspirational video  and/or have a gorgeous hydrotherapy bath - but the days are sublime -A balance between doing and being, masculine and feminine.
