Silent retreat

Embark on a transformative journey of self-discovery, peace, and rejuvenation at our upcoming silent retreat. In a world filled with constant noise and distractions, take a step back and immerse yourself in the power of silence.

Join us on a journey within.

Picture yourself in a serene setting, surrounded by
breath taking nature, where the only sounds you hear are the creek running and the gentle rustling of leaves and the harmonious rhythm of your own breath and birds. Our silent retreat offers a sanctuary away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life, providing you with a unique opportunity to disconnect from the outside world and reconnect with yourself.

During this soul-nourishing experience, you will explore the depths of your inner being through meditation, yoga, sound healing and contemplative practices. As you embrace the silence, you will gain clarity, renew your focus, and unlock a profound sense of inner peace.

With guidance from Dave, your experienced teacher, you will embark on an inward journey of self-reflection, personal growth, and renewed inspiration. Discover the power of stillness as you cultivate mindfulness, deepen your spirituality, and find solace in a supportive community of like-minded individuals. No experience is required. You need an able body to do yoga.

Our silent retreat is more than just a getaway; it's a gateway to a deeper connection with yourself and the world around you. Heal, recharge, and rediscover your true essence as you step into the realm of silence. Escape the noise and chaos, and give yourself the gift of silence. Join us at our upcoming silent retreat and experience the transformative power within.

Mt Jukes Eco Village is one truly amazing, beautiful and peaceful place in the middle of stunning nature full of wonderful wildlife, tropical fruits, good weather, kind and hard working people, super tasty food (!) and really nice comfortable tiny houses next to a big majestic Jukes mountain. We instantly felt good there, in very high energy and easygoing relaxing vibes. I would happily go back any time to relax, meditate, be humble with others and my authentic self and just enjoy the beauty of nature. Thank you for creating that space, showing your kindness and hosting us so well! One of the best experiences and definitely a place to visit in colourful Queensland! Visited in August ‘23, still thinking about it and the good memories!:)

Thank you Mount Jukes Eco Retreat for an outstanding visit! This break away to reconnect was just what I needed! Friendly and welcoming hosts, beautiful accomodation that takes in the awesome natural surroundings, delicious and deeply nourishing meals. Dave gently guided us through a form of traditional yoga practice that is very rare today, and a sound healing session gave me some profound insights. Walking through the many different fruit trees, I discovered some fruits that I had not seen or tasted before. The sauna session followed by a refreshing swim in the creek was a winner too. Thank you so much Dave and Aune! I will be back again!

It was an amazing experience on a full day retreat - sauna, yoga/meditation, sound healing and Ayurveda lunch! The Ayurveda meals was delicious! Aune is such a great cook! I would definitely recommend anyone to go at least for a session and see for themselves. It is only around 40 mins drive from Mackay. Thank you Dave & Aune!

About Your Teacher

Dave Deakin has been practising yoga since 2012. He has practised in India, Bali and Thailand and practised with many world-class teachers. Dave did his teacher training in Bali, where he studied Tantra/Hatha, a lineage-based yoga over 2500 years old, not altered for the audience in the modern world.

"Meditation is one of the main goals of yoga. The best gauge of your yoga practice is how well your life is going. Are you happy, vibrant, and in good health, mentally, physically and emotionally? This is the science of yoga. Be the best version of yourself to live with infinite possibilities. Yoga is built for optimum well-being, not flexibility." 

Dave is also trained in traditional Tibetan Singing Bowls, Ayurveda/ The Science of Life, and NLP.
