Ceremonial Celebration

For the year-end and a guided journey through the portal of time into 2024

Pema will lead us in ceremony, meditation and movement to gently remove the masks and self-defences we have built up and leave them on the threshold of the new dawn, so we can enter the New Year unmasked and strong in our true vulnerability and nakedness.

After the ceremony we will gather around the bonfire enjoying kirtan, prayer, medicine songs, mantra and silence. Be welcome to bring your drums, shakers and other instruments!



We cater three vegetarian meals per day and accommodate reasonable dietary needs. Bodhi Khaya has a reputation for delicious, nurturing & nourishing country food using organic, seasonal produce fresh from the garden and other locally sourced fresh ingredients, combined with the cook’s spontaneous creativity!
