Wellness Practitioners

Looking for health-minded people, including Wellness Practitioners
who are looking to own a site and work from this amazing
Gold Coast Hinterland property.

We are currently looking for health-minded people including Healthcare Practitioners who would like to own a piece of paradise to live and run weekly health-related events in their field. For example, a doctor who would like to run events around say hormonal issues in women, or a physiotherapist who would like to run physio, yoga, and Pilates instructors, or say an osteopath or nutritionist who would set up their clinic and work from the property.

Options include.
• Invest and buy your site, build a dome or a cabin live in it, and run your business from the health clinic within the village style retreat.
• Invest and buy your site, build a dome or a cabin, and use it to rent out to other practitioners or retreat guests.
• Invest and buy your site, build a dome or a cabin, and sit on it as an investment or future retirement / bug-out plan or holiday home.
• Or you may be interested in investing in the retreat business itself and taking a percentage of the profit of the retreats function centre.
• We are planning on building a multiple-room clinic and function centre for practitioners who are keen to get out of town and set up in a more natural environment.
• Invest and become part of the management team organizing the health related functions and events and Air B&B rentals.

As many may know, Wellness Retreats are in high demand these days, so imagine having shares in one you live at and/or work from.


Wellness resorts around the world are reporting a spike in bookings. After the last few years, we’ve all experienced, it’s hardly surprising.
Many have a pandemic-induced understanding of how precious our health is.

“Everyone has woken up to the fact that this stuff is really important,” says Neil Jacobs of wellness pioneers, Six Senses.

An article in The Traveler quotes Philippe Zuber of luxury resort company One & Only.  “People are tired of regular spas. Indeed, wellness practitioners are ready to awaken clients with more and more emotion-focused options, ranging from heart healing to meditative river bathing.
Science-based approaches are also increasingly popular, whether using diagnostic tools such as antioxidant scans or treatments using techniques such as infrared light. For many clients, results are now as important as relaxation, according to Zuber.

According to The Global Wellness Institute:
The coronavirus pandemic has firmly demonstrated how our health and wellness are intrinsically linked to our and the broader built environment. Investors, developers, and builders are awakening to wellness real estate as consumers increasingly seek out healthy homes and communities. However, the connection between wellness real estate and wellness communities is not automatic.

Creating and strengthening this connection requires an intention to do so, coupled with design and operational principles that may not be typical from a conventional real estate perspective. In the GWI research report Build Well To Live Well, the authors identified four pillars through which wellness real estate can have a transformative impact in fostering wellness communities.

Each year, the Global Wellness Institute (GWI) commissions a comprehensive research project that results in the publication of a major report on a topic of relevance and importance to the field, putting the GWI at the forefront of pioneering global research.
The much-anticipated report, Build Well to Live Well, is the first research to size and analyze the global and regional wellness lifestyle real estate and communities market. The 150+ page report finds that real estate and communities that intentionally put people’s health at the center of design, creation, and redevelopment are the next frontier in residential real estate.

The global market is growing fast: over 6% a year from 2015-2022. Consumer demand for healthy homes is outstripping supply: in the U.S., for example, there are an astonishing 1.3 million potential buyers each year but with a pipeline of 335 projects – and that pipeline leads the world.

According to a MindBody article:  Not long ago, the world was turned upside down, forcing us all to restructure our lives and re-evaluate what it means to be “well.” And if there’s one thing we learned, it’s that the definition of wellness is changing. It can no longer be defined by physical fitness alone. In fact, over three-quarters of Australians think that being physically active helps their mental health.
As part of our annual Mindbody Wellness Index, one of the industry’s most comprehensive studies, we surveyed over 1,600 Australians to see how this shift will take shape in the coming year.
From immune health and intellectual wellness to mental and sexual wellness, to music, and pets, here’s what came up as number #1, Immune Health—across all dimensions of wellness—in 2022.

From the inside out increased interest in immune health.

It’s no surprise the global pandemic sparked an increased interest in immune health. One out of three global consumers reported they were more concerned about immune health than before the pandemic started. This trend will continue in 2024, as over half (52%) of the Australian population is focused on their health and wellness because they want to strengthen their immune system to withstand illness and disease. Nearly two-thirds (61%) of people report that they’re more focused on health and wellness because they want to live a long and healthy life.

One in five Australians has tried new services or treatments that support immune health, but another 43% are interested in trying those services moving forward—women being more interested than men. Read the full article in the Link below:

The environments we live in are highly influential on our behavior, mood, and our mental and physical well-being. So, it’s important that when we choose where we live, we do so with like-minded community and healthy aging for us all in mind.

We are seeking Investors for the retreat, as well as Leaders who are interested in the Management Rights to the retreat function centre, the rental accommodation, and managing the retreat functions.

Spiritual Retreats in Australia.

Spiritual retreats provide an escape to learn, love, and discover the deeper meaning of life. If the stresses of work and family leave you searching for answers and devoid of self-esteem, sign up to learn healing practices from the best in business, writes Penny Lara.

Quest for Life, NSW

Quest for Life Foundation is a not-for-profit organization providing wellness education and spiritual and personal development to create peace in our lives. Retreats hosted by the foundation are located in Bundanoon, in the Southern Highlands of NSW. The centre is housed on nine acres of landscaped gardens, providing an ideal location for reflection, healing, and time out.

Inspirational speaker, teacher, author, and survivor of acute myeloid leukemia, Petrea King, established the foundation in 1989. A qualified naturopath, herbalist, clinical hypnotherapist, and yoga and meditation teacher, King is the reason many people are drawn to retreats.

“Petrea provides a practical and spiritual perspective in the challenging arenas of life including facing mortality, grief, loss, and trauma,” says Michelle Bell from Quest for Life Foundation. “Our changing world demands a robust version of spirituality and Petrea is well versed in articulating that for individuals, groups, and the media. She makes the invisible world accessible and can shed light and wisdom on living a meaningful life amid difficult circumstances.”

Through the residential retreats, King has counseled tens of thousands of people living with cancer or experiencing grief, loss, trauma, and tragedy. “King sees crisis as a catalyst for personal growth and understanding and as an opportunity for healing and peace,” says Bell.

Initially, the foundation was set up to support people with cancer and other serious illnesses, but over time has extended to provide practical skills for those suffering from depression, grief, anxiety, stress, trauma, eating disorders, or anyone looking for spiritual and personal growth. Bell says the Quest for Life retreats are for anyone seeking peace and healing, as they provide the tools to create emotional resilience and peace of mind. “We provide a proven, effective, and holistic approach to physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual wellbeing,” Bell says.
Nutritious meals are made on-site with attention to seasonal, local, organic, fresh, and whole foods. Much of the fresh produce is from their garden. The menu includes fish, organic chicken, and eggs as a source of complete protein.

Beyond Suffering, QLD

Beyond Suffering’s weekend retreat for the heart, mind, body, and soul is located at Temple Byron, just a few minutes drive from the heart of Byron Bay. Temple Byron is surrounded by tropical gardens that feature healing crystals, Buddha statues, and tranquil water features, with peaceful areas for quiet meditation. The weekend is run by internationally renowned spiritual leader, teacher, author, and alternative medicine practitioner Blake D. Bauer, who has trained with spiritual teachers from all over the world. With qualifications in nutritional medicine, Chinese medicine, psychology, and other forms of traditional healing, Bauer takes a holistic approach to guiding people toward greater psychological, emotional, physical, financial, and spiritual freedom.

Bauer’s retreat is based on spiritual and self-healing practices along with his bestselling book You Were Not Born to Suffer. Bauer says he has been influenced deeply by oriental views on healing, medicine, energy, nature, health, spirituality, and life. “I draw on philosophies, religions, and spiritual paths from all over the world, leading to the conclusion that all paths lead back to love,” he says.

The retreat focuses on healing through unconditional self-love, fulfilling your life’s purpose, and how to practically honor, value, and care for oneself as the key to health, happiness, and success. The sessions include mindfulness meditation, qigong healing exercises, and discussion sessions that are “aimed to be nourishing, healing and empowering for everyone present,” Bauer says. “My intention is for each person to return to their life empowered with a clear understanding, of firstly, how all their suffering, unhappiness, and illness was the result of them not loving themselves throughout their lives, and secondly, how to practically and consistently love, honor and value themselves in every personal and professional situation so they can fulfill their life’s purpose while enjoying their life to the fullest daily.” The retreat also includes an evening concert with live music and an open fire on the Saturday evening.

The Gawler 
Foundation, VIC

The Gawler Foundation retreats are conducted at Yarra Valley Living Centre, set in 40 acres of natural bushland in Yarra Junction, Victoria.
The foundation provides a peaceful and nurturing environment where people can take time out in a natural setting. The Gawler Foundation is a not-for-profit organization founded in 1983, initially set up to teach people how to increase their rates of survival from cancer. In 2004, the foundation began offering a range of retreats to help people gain knowledge of their body’s potential for inner healing, improved health, and sustainable well-being. Bronwyn Gillespie from The Gawler Foundation says the retreats provide more than a break away from people’s busy lives.

“Our retreats are experiential and truly transformational, providing a rare opportunity for life review, reflection, contemplation, and deep meditation. We encourage people to peacefully retreat in the true sense, switching off their mobile phones and electronic devices and connecting with the beauty of nature,” she says. The foundation’s philosophy is a holistic approach to life, which allows for profound healing and improved health. This approach is based on seven essential elements taught at the centre: regular meditation, good nutrition, moderate exercise, emotional healing, effective support, power of the mind, and the quest for meaning.

Guests enjoy predominantly vegan meals and fresh vegetable juices for optimum nutrients, based on biodynamic and organic whole foods, many of which are grown on the premises. They also offer practical cooking demonstrations to teach people how to continue the diet and gain confidence when returning home.

Gillespie says the retreats are designed for people to take time to explore their purpose in life, let go of habits that no longer serve them, and for people to better understand stress responses with support and guidance along the way. Most importantly, guests are guided to achieve a greater sense of peace, meaning, and well-being in their lives. “We aim to educate, inspire, and motivate participants to make positive and realistic changes to create their best life. We teach people the lifestyle tools to better manage stress, communication, and uncomfortable emotions to live more vibrantly and with a deeper sense of purpose. The retreats provide you with practical take-home lifestyle tools and techniques for a new way of mindful and purposeful living,” says Gillespie.
