THE STORY OF UDAYA RETREATS
A little bit more about how we started and what we offer
Udaya was born whilst Bess and Destiny were taking in the sunrise on the horizon of the salty blue waves down in Gerringong. The rising sun is a timeless staple of symbolism, from ancient times to now, carrying promises to those who take it in. For Bess and Destiny it symbolises presence, vitalitity, life-force, renewal, growth, change, source, empowerment, and divinity. Udaya is a Sanskrit, ancient Indian-European language, word for the rising sun. As Bess and Destiny took in the rising sun, Udaya Retreats was born in their hearts.
