My experience here at the Rosebank community –
When I first arrived I didn’t realise quite what this place is about. I came to learn about Dianne and Nathan’s raw food business which has been incredible and inspiring, also to immerse myself into community living again.
It took me around three weeks to grasp the true intention of This place. Unknowingly I had begun a very important journey of self discovery. Rosebank community is passionately focused on creating a space where us individuals are free to express our deep feelings. Truthfully and honestly. The idea of getting out of our minds thoughts and siting with our true feelings inside is a lot easier said than done. But with the help and love of the community, the weekly sharing groups, the stunning surrounding environment (unbelievable food) and Dianne for holding and creating this safe space in which I have been able to strip away the layers of ego, thought and conditioning revealing a more vulnerable me i have gained a beautiful deeper connection with myself and those around me.
This place is absolute magic!
My experience living in Rosebank community:
This beautiful place on earth have change my life! It is my most important journey so far. I came to Rosebank for learning more about one of my passion in life, healthy food that is good for my body. I wanted to learn more about the Raw food culture. I could never imagine when I first arrived to the community that my life gonna change radical. I have learned so much about myself and people around me. I have come closer to myself, accepting and feel so much love and peace within me and around me.
It feels like this place is magical and built with so much love, you can feel it in the atmosphere. Diane and Nathan have created a beautiful place for people to share, to learn and enjoy the time at the community. You feel so welcome and appreciated.
The Sharing groups we had, became so important for me and I realized how important it was when you live so close together. In the first sharing group I was petrified, I didn’t know what to expect. It was so intense, emotional and completely honest and I’m not use to that. But the next day after open up myself to Diane I felt heavy weight dropped from my shoulders. Diane is a very good listener and an amazing woman! From that moment my journey within myself began. I felt so safe to start to share to the others in the community what I really felt. You come each other so close when you open up, are honest and you learn so much about yourself and others. You learn to accept and to live in presence.
It was so important for me to stay here and give myself time to get to know me and feel better about myself. I had so much support and felt so much love around me
When I’m happy and feel good about myself it doesn’t matter what I working with, I feel passion and to do things with love feel so important to me and I feel good about it. I learned and felt this on this beautiful place.
And I feel so grateful to the beautiful garden and all the beautiful nature around the community house. I loved spending time in the garden, I felt calm and relaxed and there is so much love. It’s so beautiful to see everything growing and I really appreciate to have this amazing food every day and it became more important for me to take care and appreciate the nature and all beautiful things that are growing around us.
I stayed longer than I first planed. I truly felt that this journey was for me and destiny brought me here. I have so many memories and so many experience that I keep inside me in my home. I’m so grateful! Thank you.
Much love Petronella
It was my great pleasure to have spent the last week at Dianne’s working farm in Rosebank NSW AUS. It was this Paul Lowe enthusiast’s dream community experience. Having had attended Kira Kay’s satori experience earlier in December I was ripe for spending a week of immersion with Dianne and several other dedicated awake-ness seekers.I feel so grateful, so very grateful.
I’m not sure why I left the farm other than to following my previous travel bookings as I was so happy there. Always something to do, to learn to experience. We had two sharing groups the short time I was there… and Dianne gifted me a private satori awakening experience one morning that I am still integrating.I felt so much kindness from the members of the community, along with that there was also the challenge to keep looking to let go of the mind in a supportive environment. This is all similar to what I’ve heard Paul talk about staying awake in a community setting. I felt like I’d come across a spiritual gold mine.
I know I will go back again for a longer period of time… Do more gardening, help the selling at the markets together, make macadamia nut milk and many other raw organic products to support this community and its loving focus. I invite all of you to consider writing Dianne and see if visiting or joining this small community might be right for you.

My enthusiasm has come from time spent in Rosebank and the awesome pure nature of the area. This sort community i feel is a next step for so many.
The reason i felt that for the most part this community worked was is because there is a clear presence in Dianne Horton whom had an awakening.
It was clear to me that Dianne carried something i cannot find a name for it. She often said that Paul Lowe was the support that facilitated a shift.
Living in community for me was not always easy. I came face to face with some very challenging and difficult places within my patterns of resistance.
i never would have imagined that living in the serenity of the Australian rainforest that so much could have come up. I resisted, i fought, i thought i was right !
What Dianne showed me was something of great value that i will never forget. To feel what so ever it it is that arrises.
Ordinarily in our comfortable world we will rarely face these places that seem to be an essential part of waking up. At least thats how it appeared to me.
Its one thing to do an intense group. ( there can still be a safety net in that ) though for me quite another thing to feel the raw nerve that gets touched in a boot camp as i experienced at Dianne’s community.
I have come across some people who left the community, only to return back again with a new level of commitment to dive even deeper.
I found that i reached my limit of ” surrender ” and that would have, could have been a good starting point.
I wanted to express also the fun that i had in this community. We had some fantastic sharing groups, sometimes three times a day.
Clearly this is not for everyone. I did however experience times when we functioned as one family. like one organism. And in that i can say it was an amazing experience.
With Love Peter
