Introducing Austin, the brother of Damian and the visionary behind the retreat space, whose life's journey from personal challenges in his youth and through a career in the building trade to profound spiritual enlightenment is nothing short of inspirational.
Austin's path to transformation began with the recognition that there was more to life than what met the eye. Driven by a deep inner calling, he embarked on a spiritual journey that would lead him to some of the most remote corners of the world. Austin's quest for enlightenment took him to the Himalayas, where he spent time in hermitages, sharing wisdom with monks who had devoted their lives to spiritual practice.
During his extraordinary journey, Austin had the privilege of studying with His Holiness the Dalai Lama, absorbing the profound teachings and timeless wisdom that have been passed down through multiple lineages. This experience left an indelible mark on Austin's soul, shaping his understanding of compassion, mindfulness, and the interconnectedness of all beings.
But Austin's spiritual journey didn't stop there. With unwavering dedication and the guidance of divine inspiration, he embarked on a path of self-actualization embodying Christ consciousness and opening himself up to the Divine. Through introspection, meditation, and a deep commitment to inner growth, he unlocked the hidden potential within himself. Austin's journey has also led to initiation into Shamanic practices giving him an eclectic array of powerful and transformational tools enabling him to support others along the way and making him a powerful intuitive healer.
Today, Austin has transformed his life into one of service. He possesses profound wisdom and unique gifts honed through his own personal spiritual awakening. His journey has equipped him with the ability to guide others on their path towards enlightenment and self-discovery.
As one of the custodians of our retreat space, Austin is not only a steward of this sacred haven but also a beacon of light for those seeking a deeper connection with themselves and the universe. His presence radiates a sense of peace, authenticity, and compassion that draws individuals from all walks of life to this sanctuary of self-discovery.
Austin's remarkable journey from a challenging past to a life of service is a testament to the transformative power of the human spirit. He is a living embodiment of the potential for profound growth and spiritual awakening, and his mission is to help others unlock their own inner wisdom and embrace the beauty of their own spiritual journey.
