Origins Centre

About This Center

The Centre is quiet, beautiful and inspiring. Many different groups and individuals seek to contribute to the common good, and all are welcome here. Activists come to recover and renew; many people come for mindfulness training. Artists come here to write, rehearse, paint or simply soak up the atmosphere. Students come to study away from distraction.

Regularly we welcome travellers, and many nationalities have enriched the Centre with their contributions. As we are situated right on the Bibbulmun track, lots of walkers stop here to rest.

In 1983, the property was generously donated to Origins Centre, a WA group interested in Buddhist ideas and practices. Although retreats and Buddhist study groups have always been held here, the Origins Centre has now evolved into a universal, inclusive and practical place open to the community.

Why Retreat?

We asked people why they go on retreat, here's what they said:

After the past two years of transition on every level, I would absolutely LOVE a retreat! :) Chelsee

Retreat Guru's Vision

We believe human beings are innately wise, strong and kind. This wisdom, although not always experienced, is always present. Going on retreat is a beautiful way to reconnect to our basic sanity and health. Our aspiration at Retreat Guru is to inspire people to experience authentic retreats and reconnect with their innate wisdom, strength and kindness.
