Vedic astrology is one of the oldest sciences known to humanity, and is part of the greater system of yogic knowledge. It is referred to as the eyes of the Vedas, because it gives us the ability to see into our lives with more clarity. While similar to Western astrology in using planets, signs, houses and aspects, it calculates these differently and adds many unique factors of its own.

Vedic astrology is a comprehensive system of astrological interpretation, containing accurate methods for examining all aspects of life from health to wealth, from relationships to enlightenment. It has tremendous power both for prediction of events and for guidance on how to live in harmony with the universe, helping us to understand and transcend the influence of karma.

Gain an introductory glimpse into the science and esoteric artistry held within Vedic astrology through this powerful course. You will learn to deconstruct and understand your own chart through interpretation of the planets, 12 signs, 12 houses, and more. This will help you to achieve profound insight into your self, your life and your purpose, unlocking genuine self-understanding and spiritual growth.

Delicious Vegetarian Food

The Krishna Farm has been producing organic veggies since the 1980s and has therefore fantastic conditions to grow excellent produce. We grow as much of our own food as we can, and otherwise buy locally wherever possible. 

We provide 3 delicious vegetarian meals every day, with lunches taking place at the Krishna Village community kitchen, and breakfast and dinners - mostly Indian style - served at the prasadam hall, next to the temple. 

All our food is prasadam - sacred food prepared in a consciousness of loving service. Like in other cultures, we offer our food before we eat to say Grace and thank the Divine for the sun, the rain, and all the visible and invisible blessings necessary to co-create a delicious meal. Feel free to sing along with us, or just listen and enjoy...

The Krishna Farm

Nestled in the foothills of Mount Warning, in the heart of the Northern Rivers of New South Wales, the Krishna Farm “New Govardhana” is a 1000 acre property with orchards, certified organic veggie gardens, cows, horses, streams and swimming holes in abundance. 

New Govardhana serves as an ashram to a community of yogis who aspire to live according to their deepest vows and commitments on their path of service, spiritual contentment and happiness, Bhakti Yoga. Their service and dedication make this location a beautiful place of growth, healing and spiritual awakening. If you are interested, please come along and visit our beautiful Radha Govardhandhari temple. 


"Adria works her magic"

"Adria is absolute unconditional love and support. I could never thank her enough for helping me through the most difficult time of my life. It's so amazing to be shown the steps on finding the answers to all of life's adversity right inside myself. It sounds maybe a tad cheesy, but it's true, and to be shown this is such a massive gift. There is no where else you have to look, it's right inside, and Adria works her magic and guides me there every session. As well, Adria's acupressure helped relieve a huge amount of my chronic pain from a work related injury. When my friends and I talk about our sessions with Adria, we all agree that we are talking about the most precious jewel we've been lucky enough to find."

- Sara Redman

"A new way to work with the energy body"

- Elaine Oliver

"Amazing content, amazing teacher”

"Instrumental in empowering me to change my life for the better”

"I have been a client of Adria’s since late 2006. I started seeing her to assist with a succession of severe migraine attacks. These attacks coincided with starting a new job, which turned out to be a very unpleasant work environment. Using her many skills, including Acupressure, Therapeutic Massage, Counselling & Inner Guidance, Adria has helped me to identify and remedy the causes of my migraines, and assist me to find new avenues to heal myself.

With Adria’s guidance, I was able to manifest a career direction more suitable to my skill set. I now wake up everyday to a new challenge, confident that I have the ability to rise up and overcome the hurdles that I face in my life. Adria’s sensitivity and counselling skills made it easy to talk about any issues in my life, while in a relaxed and safe environment. She would always help me to find the answers within myself. This included guiding me to resources, such as books and DVDs, to further enhance me on my spiritual journey of life. Thank you Adria, your intuitive wisdom, guidance and positive energy have been instrumental in empowering me to change my life for the better."
