Susie & Michael


Michael Adamedes and Susie Farrell founded Awaba Retreat on New Year’s Eve 2009, it was the culmination of a long held dream.

Michael has worked as a personal development facilitator and clinical psychotherapist for more than 30 years, he has a practice in Sydney and on the Central Coast NSW.

Susie came from a corporate environment, has a background in classical ballet and more than 40 years experience in yoga. She first became enamoured with yoga in 1973 and then again in 1984 while working in India for the Dept of Foreign Affairs.

Michael & Susie’s philosophy is that not only should something be good for you but also enjoyable and stylish. They believe in the idea of bringing spirit into space, that is, everything you interact with is a manifestation of a higher intelligence. When objects, actions and the environment are in harmony then there is a space that spontaneously nurtures and heals.

They both conduct regular weekend and extended retreats at Awaba and in Bali.
