WHAT IS HAPPENING?

Our beloved Mindfulness & Mediation beach hut, made by the community of Byron for the community, is at risk of being taken down due to an unfortunate complaint. Let's show that there are many reasons to keep it. As we live in a democracy, where majority rules, let the many voices of the community be heard.

WHO IT IS IMPACTING

Locals (and tourists) who need a space to meditate and think. Who need a space outside of their homes. A quiet calm space. A free space welcome to all. A space outside where they can go, even in the rain. A little sanctuary away from home.

WHAT ARE WE ASKING?

We are asking the council to listen to the people of Byron Bay and please reconsider. We ask the council to be flexible in a time where compassion is needed. In a time where people need a space to be alone, to meditate, to gather their thoughts, to help themselves or others... a place to just be. Please don't deny the community their needs without speaking to them first. An act of service for the community should not be denied, it should be praised. We believe it is unethical to take something down that brings so much happiness. If you agree, PLEASE SIGN this petition.

We would also like to know 'why' the hut needs to be taken down. As we believe it does not negatively impact the wildlife, nor humans.

We also ask the person who made the complaint to think about their actions be more mindful on how their actions can impact others. Tearing down this hut will have a very negative impact on many in the community. It goes against the essence of Byron, an area for culture, art, meditation and freedom. We welcome this person to the hut, to join a meditation at any time, to experience the joy it can bring.

WHAT IS THE HUT ALL ABOUT?

During the pandemic many people have felt isolated, alone, trapped, so a small group of incredibly caring people built this space to help those in need. It is inspiring that these beautiful people acted on their dreams to help others. 

It is a mindfulness and meditation hut only, and everyone graciously respects this sanctuary. It brings peace and love and respect to the community. There is signs up to please respect he space by no alcohol or sex.

Using recycled & repurposed materials. It is an inspiring form of art. It has little to no impact on the environment, except for a purpose to raise the vibrations. It is a new way for the community to engage with each other in a calm and peaceful way.

It is open to the public, a space to feel safe. A space to get away, to shed past traumas, meditate, sing, chant, pray, connect, disconnect or just be. A space for Mindfulness.
