About This Center

Authenticity has been established over the last two decades and is located on a 40 acre property with a stunning and tastefully renovated and decorated 1864 Manor. The entire estate and the services provided inspire and evoke the inner senses into tranquility and mystery. This ideal sanctuary is nestled on the outskirts of the picturesque township of Pt Elliot, Fleurieu Peninsula, an hour’s drive south of Adelaide.

Authenticity offers year-round retreats for rest, rejuvenation, transformation, personal growth, spiritual crisis, and individual healing intensives. To that purpose we have gathered a team of highly skilled practitioners in traditional and revolutionary therapies such as Psychology and Psychotherapy, Naturopathy, Transpersonal Art Therapy, Herbal Medicine, Beauty Therapy, Advanced Clinical Skin Care and Massage Modalities. We support and use organic and biodynamic products that are environmentally sound.

We are genuine seekers of Truth and are devoted to providing a healing environment for all beings and our Mother, the Earth. Through our retreats we aim to help raise awareness of our true nature and our relationship to each other and the world at large. The sanctuary is providing a space that is conducive to facilitating the healing process that we as individuals and the planet at large are going through.

Authenticity is ideal for those who seek to find inner peace, tranquility, insight and transformation as well as personal development and restoration of mind body and soul.

From all the facilitators and and the supporting team, we are looking forward to seeing you here and being of assistance to your wellbeing.

Authenticity Mission

We are genuine seekers of truth and devoted to our own evolution and healing. 

Healing is a Journey into Self Realisation. 

We provide an optimal facility where people are assisted to achieve the deepest levels of healing possible. 

We believe environment is everything.

We stimulate and direct our retreat guests into a deeper awareness of the true nature and causes of their suffering and disease, by working through personal traumas, emotional problems, negative patterns and programs. We facilitate a transformative process where heart, mind and body operate in a more harmonious, balanced and positive way towards health and wellbeing.

Our retreats aim to activate the innate healing capacities of an individual, through providing dietary guidance, massage therapies , exercise regimes, yoga and meditation practices, psychological explorations, and energetic healings. 

We are all interwoven into the fabric of this planet and our individual consciousness effects the collective. In this light, the Sanctuary provides a space that is conducive to the transformative process that we as individuals and the planet are going through.

Sovereignty, Self Determination, Spiritual Liberty and Motivation are at the heart of our work, positively influencing the individual and community.

Going on retreat is a beautiful way to reconnect to our basic sanity and health.
