    Satori Springs Hosts

    Your hosts Grant and Julie each bring complimentary energies to Satori Springs.

    Besides being a very generous, passionate human being, Grant has worked in the business world for the past 30 years, taking his product to globally to Europe, UK, USA and Asia before selling the business to establish Satori Springs Country Estate.

    Satori Springs has allowed him to reinvent himself as a labourer, painter, gardener, landscaper and master of retaining walls! He has helped shape the property into the haven it is today.

    Grant also practices magnetic healing which is also known as energy balancing or auric healing. This gift came to him 20 years ago when he began to feel the energy around people’s bodies. He is capable of detecting where there is disease or negative energy and then lifting and removing it, making room for healing to take place.

    Julie, his wife of 20 years is a highly sensitive, enthusiastic and joyful person. She has spent her life sharing the magic of music with kids as well as writing, publishing and playing her own music. (

    Julie is a practised community magnet, bringing together adults and little people alike in choirs and drum circles wherever she goes. For the last 10 years, she has been a continent chameleon making her music in London and LA before finding Satori Springs and home.

    Julie has a sparkle, an open connection and is able to channel spirit through a meditative state, receiving messages to help people on their healing journey.

    Julie and Grant have four gorgeous (grown) children and one extra-gorgeous grandchild!

    Satori Springs Retreat

    Satori, a Japanese word meaning; awareness, understanding and enlightenment wraps its significance around this corner of Canyonleigh.

    Built for the purpose of sharing peace and beauty, Satori Springs started its journey in 1999 as a shared illumination, growing into its present manifestation after 2 years of designing, building, grooming, evolution and hard work. The property can accommodate guests in luxury private or family accommodation. The venue is set in a parkland and bush setting overlooking a glorious lake.

  • Satori_angel_small

    An angel is set on the highest point of the land overlooking the majesty of the property. Its aspect takes in the rolling lawns and gardens, across the lake with its old English style boat shed and wooden rowboat and out across the beautiful bush of 102 acres filled with nooks and crannies for you to discover.

    There is a magic in the air here. A natural brake which pulls you back into the moment and treats you to the time to just breathe and enjoy the peace.

    The interior of the house; the light, the space, the sounds, the textures, the treasures are all designed to bring a sense of calm, balance, inspiration and possibility. A tranquil canvas on which to decorate your own time here.
