Winter Byron Bay Retreat 2021

We are thrilled to announce our Byron Bay Retreat for 2021.

Welcome to your ultimate indulgence of 4 days and 3 evenings of blissful immersion into conscious expansion, ancient knowledge and practices and as always, our famous food and delights. Enjoy soaking up the beauty of nature in Byron Bay, the easternmost point of Australia!! This Retreat has been specially curated where everything will be created around the philosophy of our new book High Grade Living, your education, our experiences and the food and setting. At The Broad Place, we take incredible care and place attention to detail on the things that we feel count.

We host our magnificent Retreat at Byron Bay on Australia’s East Coast and you’re invited to join us at the luscious Atlantic Byron Bay where everything will be created around the philosophy of our new book High Grade Living. Our wonderful inspired energy goes into the meticulous planning in creating all our Retreats.

There is something we call the ‘Retreat Effect‘ that can occur for students, where they feel great on a retreat, then gritty and resentful once back into their home and work life. We have carefully curated this Byron Bay Retreat to not only cocoon you in nature and allow you to immerse in deep knowledge with an amazing community, but also to arm you with the tools, wisdom, and practices to allow you to integrate everything for once you return home. We feel this is vital to a brilliant experience and creating lasting change.

Our Retreats are the kinds of experiences that you will leave you glowing for months. The grounding down, the relaxation, and the unwinding of years of stress, tension fatigue out of the nervous system are unsurpassed. The creativity, calm and feeling of joy and wonder that occurs, our students absolutely cherish. The knowledge and wisdom and applicable tools you will depart with and hold for life, make this Retreat priceless.

“Now ‘life-changing’ shouldn’t be bandied around and its certainly not what I was expecting, but what I have come away with from The Broad Place Byron Bay Retreat is something deep and beautiful. I feel I have been given a very important key to creating the reality I desire” – LARA

“I could not imagine a more idyllic environment for a meditation retreat than Byron Bay and the Atlantic. The setting, the vibes, the energy there was calm, serene, creative, blissful and beautiful. The food was nourishing and grounding and absolutely delicious. That alone would’ve been enough for an amazing retreat!!  Enter The Broad Place who are some of the most kind, loving and compassionate people I have ever met. They facilitated the most inspiring retreat. I have wanting to learn formal meditation for so long and they taught it in such a way that it was not the least bit intimidating, it just felt like coming home. I have never felt more grateful that this opportunity was placed in my path. The way everything was planned flowed effortlessly and felt so supportive. I learned more than I possibly could have imagined. If there is any part of you that feels called to this, don’t hesitate. The Broad Place and Jac especially are endlessly patient, responsive, available, warm and inspiring. No matter what, this retreat will exceed all of your expectations.” – ZOE


The Retreat will be held on June 17th – 20th.

We host our Byron Bay Retreats at our friends and students property Atlantic Byron Bay as it’s simply the best. The Atlantic Byron Bay is a lifestyle hotel. The perfect combination of location and style surrounded by swaying palm trees and the sound of the ocean. The Atlantic is the perfect getaway for couples with cafes, shops and white sandy beaches all steps from your deck. Soak up the sun on the lawn, hide under a palm tree and enjoy the balmy evenings by the fire pit. Cast off your bags and start making moments at your home away from home.


The schedule for this Retreat will be centred around High Grade Living, and the process of AUDITING, EDITING and REFINING the areas of our lives to align with our higher selves. We will begin this carefully considered process with a 2pm start on the Thursday and wrap 11am on the Sunday.

This Retreat will include;

– Workshops and Classes with applicable tools for you to understand yourself on a deeper level and live your highest grade life, in the areas of Creativity, Meditation and Relationships 

– two sessions of body movement to unlock stress and tension and open up your body, and therefore also your mind

– sunrise chai and swim sessions

– evenings around the fire pit and in the garden, with conversation and philosophy about how we can all live from our higher selves

– education into creative journaling and writing to unlock your subconscious and creativity 

– delicious vegan organic meals cooked on the premise for you by hand, and with love by our dear friend Cade McConnell. Everyone always comments on how insanely good they feel after 4 days of Cade’s cooking!

“The retreat in Byron Bay was just what I needed. It was a beautiful gift to myself to take time out, learn the Vedic Meditation technique in a beautiful setting, be nourished by good food, be enriched by Jac’s teachings, to enjoy the company of likeminded people and the company of myself in our free time. Thank you Jac and Arran for making this happen. One week later and I am already feeling the benefit in my life. I look forward to doing this again sometime soon!” – ANNA

“The Broad Place Byron Retreat was a perfectly curated four days of meditation, workshops, rest and nourishment in one of the most heavenly places in the country. Days were structured with a balance of group work and independent time with plenty of support and guidance from Jacqui and her amazing team. The Atlantic Guesthouses was a fitting venue for this inspiring few days providing luxurious accommodation and excellent location right in town and only a few minutes walk from the beach. I came away refreshed, enthusiastic and ready to take on my busy life again but with a bit more clarity and optimism. I would love to do this one again soon!” – VIC

“I loved Jac’s talks. In fact, my advice would be to add more of them to the programme. You only had to look at the fixated looks on everyone’s faces to know that the thirst is there”  JENNY

Notes of refunds and cancellations.

While we appreciate that some participants will have genuine and difficult reasons for not being able to attend, it is impossible for us to judge whether any individual cancellation is deserving of a refund. To make things fair we do not offer refunds under any circumstances. If you have paid in full you will need to find a replacement for your place if you are unable to attend.
