Our day together will begin with settling in and free time to switch your mind from your busy life outside to that of calm and tranquillity. We will then begin our retreat with an award-winning dining experience, the Sounds of Silence Dinner. As the sun sets, listen to the sound of a didgeridoo, before enjoying a gourmet buffet of Australian delicacies under the stars in the free, open desert surroundings. Following our welcome dinner, sit back and relax with a star talker as they take you on a tour of the night sky as you let your mind wander above and set your intentions for the coming days.
Today we will rise early for an exclusive private Uluru Highlights Tour. Our guide will take us to a special location to watch the sunrise of majestic Uluru as you enjoy your outback picnic breakfast.
Afterwards, we will take a walk along the Mutitjulu Waterhole on the Kuniya Walk and learn the Creation stories of Liru (poisonous snake) and Kuniya (python). We will drive around the base of Uluru and hear the story of the Mala people before returning to the resort.
Following rest and recuperation at the resort, we will enjoy time for channelled teachings, meditations and inner journaling on your experience with your spiritual heart before dinner at the Bough House.
We will again rise early for a beautiful sunrise tour of Kata Tjuta and Walpa Gorge. Your tour will travel through the landscape to the entrance of Uluru Kata Tjuta National Park. From there is it a 40 kilometres journey through the desert landscape to the mighty rock formation.
On arrival at the viewing area,you walk to the best vantage point to see the 36 domes that comprise this spiritual place while watching the suns morning glow as the desert comes alive.
We make our way to the western side of Kata Tjuta where you will have the opportunity to relax and enjoy an outback picnic breakfast. As you approach the entrance to Walpa Gorge, named for the wind (Walpa) that whistles between the massive domes that shape Kata Tjuta, the result of eons of weathering and continual upheaval, your guide will share the significance of this men’s sacred ceremonial site.
We take a stroll between these mighty conglomerate rock walls as your guide explains how the environment and the geology have evolved over millions of years.
Your guide will return to your accommodation at Ayers Rock Resort.
Later in the afternoon,we will regroup for teaching time, then head to an early dinner at the beautiful Mangata Bistro & Bar.
On the fourth day, breakfast will be served at the resort for you to enjoy at your leisure. We will then meet for a Mt Connor self-drive adventure tour and picnic lunch at Attila (Mt Conner Viewing area) 100km away.
Once we arrive, we will find a place for meditation and connection to this amazing monolith. The monolith itself is on private land, but we will be able to see Attila and connect within to her diamond frequencies of the sacred Divine from afar.
After our meditation, we have the option to travel the Mala Walk on our way back to the resort before sunset. Here we will visit ancient campsites, view incredible rock art and learn how the Anangu lived in days gone by. We also have the opportunity to enter the caves where the Mala (rufous hare-wallaby) people camped when they first arrived on this land and witness the cave where they prepared their meals.
We will then close our day with a beautiful dinner.
On our final day together, a full buffet breakfast will be served at the Ilkari Restaurant.
After breakfast, we will head to the Cultural Centre at the base of Uluru for a Maraku dot painting class with a local Anangu person guiding us through the Aboriginal symbols and painting techniques. This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to sit in stillness out on country as you paint your connection to the spiritual heart of Uluru and create something sacred to take home.
After spending time at the Cultural Centre, you will be able to purchase lunch at the cafe before we head back to the resort for free time, before meeting again for our closing ceremony and sunset dinner as a group.
Enjoy a 5 star buffet breakfast before your airport transfers.
