SueShawSue Shaw is the source and inspiration behind Shara Sanctuary & Retreat – Centre for Health & Wellbeing based in Hallett Cove in South Australia.

After working in the corporate sector in Adelaide for over 30 years in various roles including event management, public relations, promotions and communication, she started exploring the spiritual path which took her on a journey of self discovery and deep learning.

Her corporate background and experience resulted in her obtaining a Certificate IV in Small Business Management, Certificate IV in Workplace Training, Marketing Certificate, Certificate in Designing for Desktop Publishing & Print, and Certificate in Internal Consulting Skills.

Her PR and Media training with John Riddell and Mike Smithson (Channel 7) whilst in the role of Media Liaison Officer at SGIC Insurance, combined with her experience in managing corporate sponsorships, designing, writing and editing newsletters enabled her to synthesize her knowledge to create and deliver professional and high quality events.

Sue’s passion to inspire, encourage and empower others led her to become a qualified Reiki Master, Intuitive Reader, Psychosomatic Therapist, Hypnotherapist and AromaTouch Technique Therapist.

These well-being services are offered at her beautiful retreat nestled in the Southern suburb of Hallett Cove in South Australia.

The Enlighten Adelaide Festival and the Riverland Wellness Festival are two major annual events in SA that Sue created which embrace a spirit of community and oneness.

Sue’s professionalism and passion shine through everything that she does and you can be assured of the highest level of service, attention and integrity every step of the way.

On a personal level, Sue is willing to give anything a go and believes that “If I can do it, then anyone can!” She strives to lead by example which has resulted in her competing in the Corporate Cup Run, Aquatic Team Challenge, Duke of Edinburgh Award’s Canoe Marathon, Walk for the Cure and Fay Richwhite/BRW Corporate Team Triathlon Series. She has also achieved the level of green belt in Taekwondo and is a Certified Padi Open Water Diver.
