Shunyata Retreat and Day Spa - for emotional healing, mind and body


Are you going through it right now!
Have you lost your job, feeling lost, really don’t know what next?
Have you ever asked yourself who are you really?
Do you know that your soul is calling you to do something deeper?
Do you realise that the deepest pain you are experiencing can be transformed into the deepest gift you have for the world?

Maybe this time in history is the time for you to truly go inside and find out who you truly are – as a great part of the planet are doing right now – awakening!

If 95% of our behaviours are unconcious and running our life through our mind and our conditioning from our parents that cause the most suffering in our lives, and the mind is full of fear, doubt and suffering – don’t you think there is a lot of sabotage going on in your life.What do we do- we blame the outside – we say we will never be like our father, or our mother and yet we are running that same programme!

There is a way out – that doesn’t need to last a lifetime -Paru’s work over the last 30 years has found a gateway  home – back to the true self, to the essence of who youtruly are and it can be done in just a day, 3 days or more.

How can you explain the unexplainable – the purest form of you.

Paru is a wanderful ,carying and heartworming person.She has a gift to make you feel comfortable and safe to open up .Her food is delicious and I honoured her spontaneity and simplicity..I highly recommend her if you feel the need to dive deep into your traumas and find your own wisdom.Her knowledge is extensive and passionate for the job she's doing .
thank you Paru from my heart,

Rosanda Fajit



The Journey 

The Journey is a globally recognized, critically acclaimed healing and transformational methodology. Which  works fast to awaken you to your limitless potential - so you can achieve success in every area of your life.

Journey work goes much deeper than conventional therapeutic treatments. It clears emotional blocks held in cell memories beyond the mind and has permanent and life-changing results. In a Journey Process you work directly with your subconscious to let go of past issues, forgive and heal through your own inner truth. The process guides you where no meditation, positive mindset or healthy lifestyle has been able to take you before; to the infinite intelligence inside you, which can deeply heal your body and free you from a variety of diseases, behavioural problems and general emotional issues such as low self-esteem, stress, anger, guilt, grief, depression, panic attacks, anger, phobias, anxiety, shutdown, abuse and trauma,addictions, pain, lack of confidence, .

People are left with an empowered clarity, inner peace, causeless joy .self love and freedom to live the life of meaning & purpose. The lasting change comes from inside of you and all it takes is a little courage to have this life-altering experience, because feeling what has been avoided is the key to true freedom. It is done in a safe nurturing envionment with Paru.

The Enneagram

What is the enneagram

This offers profound insights into the way people think, feel, and behave. It lays out nine distinct personality types (but deeper than personality ) and the adaptive habits, patterns of behavior, and strengths and gifts that characterize them. Its great power to create change, lies in the accuracy and depth of the personality descriptions and the transformational path it offers those who wish to grow to reach their fullest potential and cultivate presence in their life.  Our lower level instincts are driven by survival, our higher by the power of love. This is the fastest route to conscious growth and Paru has been studying it with world teachers for 30 years now.

Enneagram Test


Paru first brought Brandon Bays to NZ back in 2004 and has been working fulltime with this work at Shunyata Retreat and Day spa. She believes her specialty with the enneagram truly gets to the core, and 1-3 sessions can often be equivalent to a year of counselling. What happens combining the two therapies is we get to meet is we uncover the unconcious part that is not serving us and find that place of love inside of ourselves, our higher self, our essence, that which could never be met for many on a spiritual path for 20 years. It works, it works, it works.

Having her wake up call 30 years ago and being the workshop junkie in Byron Bay, she came home to offer this work in a retreat type environment and has evolved so much from observing clients and in her own life and today she can be grateful for the freedom from

separation & loneliness,victimhood,anger towards men,guilt & shame from catholic conditioning.fear of the unknown, self hatred and childhood trauma.Body insecurities

and every day she gives thanks for her infectuous passion for life and freedom & sovereignty and wants that for you.


After working with people for 17 years at Shunyata I feel I have truly upgraded a combination of techniques for true freedom - I couldn't do the Enneagram without The Journey and I couldn't do The Journey without the Enneagram.  Combine these two therapies and we arrive to your essence, your potential, your higher self.  

Gabor Mate quotes -" most illnesses, blocks and addictions comes from childhood trauma and unmet anger, sadness and grief and this is what we address on a soul level  at Shunyata through the enneagram.

The Enneagram

The word Enneagram derives from the Greek words ennea (“nine”) and gram (“something written or drawn”)
It is a  system of personality types situated around the enneagram symbol offers profound insights into the way people think, feel, and behave. It lays out nine distinct personality types and the adaptive habits, patterns of behavior, and strengths and gifts that characterize them. Its great power to create change, lies in the accuracy and depth of the personality descriptions and the transformational path it offers those who wish to grow to reach their fullest potential and cultivate presence in their life.  Our lower level instincts are driven by survival, our higher by the power of love.

Enneagram Test

 I recommend The Riso Hudson for a more in depth test, but if you just want a quick one here is a great link.  At Shunyata you are not only typed but taken deeper on a journey into your
life purpose, your gift to the world.

I remember the day I read about my enneagram type and said to myself "This is me and my mother and to the day I die I will be working with this work" .30 years on I can say I experience freedom like never before and want this for everyone.  Paru has worked with Kevin and Brandon from the Journey, Eli Jaxon Bear, Beatrice Chestnut, Russ Hudson, Jessica Dibb and Robert Hollden in her passionate love of the ENNEAGRAM


What is emotional intelligence -Ability  to express one's emotions, and to handle interpersonal relationships judiciously and empathetically. I often say they should have taught this in school, but here at Shunyata you will learn, through your type, to be healthy with your emotions.  Not wallowing or storytising  them but feeling totally them through your body so they no longer run you.
