He has worked extensively with drug addiction, domestic violence, psychosomatic aspects of disease and emotional healing. With his teaching partner Janet McGeever, they presented the Making Love Retreat, as developed by Diana Richardson in Europe, for six years.
To quote Gene,
The Resort has been the home of the Making Love Retreat in Australia since 2012. It was my growing love for this beautiful rainforest property that led me to purchase it in 2015. This fulfilled a dream born in 1981, to own and develop a Centre for Personal Growth and the Development of Life Skills.
My Signature one-day workshop ‘Transformation’ embodies the core philosophy of The Heart at Kondalilla. Our policy is that all workshops at Kondalilla Eco Resort are Heart Centred, meaning they emanate from Love, Compassion, Gratitude, Appreciation, deep Understanding and Wisdom. The Making Love Retreat for couples flows from this place, creating a state that transforms the sexual energy into inner peacefulness and love during lovemaking.
Gene has been a committed Meditator for twenty years, and is dedicated to Teaching Meditation for Good Health, Longevity, Healing, and Personal and Spiritual Development. He is well grounded in business, employing two hundred and fifty men and women. Last year with his employees he celebrated 50 years of managing and growing his Engineering Manufacturing Company. He attributes Meditation and Living from the Heart as major contributors to his success.
The Heart at Kondalilla website is now available to promote the upcoming workshops and retreats that are held at Kondalilla Eco Resort.
