Woodlands Sanctuary Foundation

Calendar 2015


The Woodlands Sanctuary Foundation’s activities are set in an environment of peace and tranquillity, away from the hustle and bustle of the city and suburbia, on 16 hectares of farm and bushland.  These are ideal surroundings in which we, and our mentors in the world of spirit, may replicate the teachings of yester-year in the classical era of Spiritualism when the standards of mediumship frequently attained heights very seldom witnessed in this day and age of rapidly changing conditions with electronic communications and entertainment and attendant intrusions upon our serenity and demands upon our time.  The old methods of teaching are still known and it is up to us diligently and dedicatedly apply them in seeking to help students attain the highest possible levels of mediumship and understanding.

 The Doylean Centre, so named after leading Spiritualist (and creator of Sherlock Holmes) Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, contains a central room large enough to comfortably seat over 60 people; as well as having a fully equipped kitchen, 2 bathrooms, and two work rooms/offices.

Heritage House is adjacent to the Doylean Centre and has accommodation consisting of 4 separate bedrooms with 4 single beds and 2 double bunks – capacity to sleep 8 people.  In addition, there is accommodation at the WS homesteadfor 5 people (2 twin and 1 singleguest bedrooms).
