A Tantric approach to Life Counselling and Relationship Harmony
Established in 2006

The Sanctuary of Ananda Newsletter July 2015

Welcome to the new look Sanctuary!

Our new website has finally been launched bringing with it a fresh new look, energy, direction and domain name.  Our new domain name is

My intent in creating this new site was to open more awareness to the mainstream that the practice of Tantra is an holistic approach to life counselling, offering relationship counselling for men, women and couple’s as well as our fabulous Workshops, Retreats and Practitioner Training.

Many thanks to Claire from Zeta Tech for the endless hours and hard work it took to create this new site and move it over from the old one.  

In other news, I have recently returned from Ubud Bali where I facilitated an Intensive Practitioner Training Module. This was an incredible experience both for me as a teacher and on a personal level and also for the Participants who attended. Congratulations to our lovely Graduates who joined us from all over Australia and New Zealand. May you always go forward on this journey remembering and shining your light from the temple on the mountain. Every single one of you is absolutely beautiful J

I very big thank you to Susan, Paula and David for all your hard work and dedication in sharing and supporting all who attended and most importantly for being your gorgeous selves. You are seen and acknowledged by myself and so many so bless you for all that you do. Thank you to the amazing duo from Sanctuary Travel, Kecci and Crystal for organizing this incredible event. Thank you also to Lisa and Donna for their role in Admin. Lastly, to the beautiful people of Bali, you touched my heart in so many ways with your humbleness, gentleness and smiling faces. I look forward to returning to this special place again next year.


The Graduates from the Bali 2015 Practitioners Training

We are now in the process of organizing the next Intensive Training in Bali as well as the Module 2 Training with my teacher. I also plan to teach a Couple’s Retreat in Ubud too so details will be posted when this has been finalized.

Lastly, I have now located rooms in the heart of Bunbury, Western Australia offering private sessions for women and couple’s as well as Workshops every Sunday and Monday. To make a booking please visit our website.

Stay safe and happy everyone and wishing you a wonderful month of love and joy.

OM Shanti

Cathy Wood 

Founder of the Sanctuary of Ananda

"We cultivate love when we allow our most vulnerable and powerful selves to be deeply seen and known and when we honor the spiritual connection that grows from that offering with trust, respect, kindness and affection.

Love is not something we give or get; it is something that we nurture and grow, a connection that can only be cultivated between two people when it exists within each one of them - we can only love others as much as we love ourselves.

Shame, blame, disrespect, betrayal and the withholding of affection damage the roots from which love grows.

Love can only survive these injuries if they are acknowledged, healed and forgiven" (Brene Brown)
