What is the Functional Spirituality retreat...

TFSR is a unique online study journey to learn the entire 3 part method of Functional Spirituality. You will learn the root philosophy and the tools of each: Healing, Cultivating and Awakening. It is a meta approach; looking at what elements work best, which are necessary and how to avoid the pitfalls, on your chosen path.

Supported by mentor Ava Irani, you will enter a world of profound wisdom,

Interesting, deeper and motivating trainings at your fingertips.

You will gain a rare and profound perspective that will take your practice further, faster. Because both speed and depth are important on our path.

Quantum leaps in our evolution ARE possible.

But it is NOT through a special technique or teacher.

It is through the right understanding of how to use the techniques and teachings.


Our spiritual systems can be dysfunctional...

Some elements work, but others are nonsense, adopted from another context; it can take years before we realise we are going in circles.

This is not being taught anywhere else.

"When I look at Eckhart, Mooji, Deepak, or even my favourites like Tara Brach or Adyashanti, they are missing the essential distinction of a Functional Spiritual practice…

To, actually, change your life, you need to consider 3 different elements of Spiritual development" ~ Ava Irani

Hi :)

I'm Ava. You might know me from classes at our Fremantle-based yoga, Spanda School, or tuned in through my podcast Functional Spirituality. Or, maybe you've joined one of my many retreats in somewhere special around the world...

My spiritual path started with a hungry passion for awakening and non-dual liberation. However, after 15+ years of devouring spiritual practices, my path has matured and clarified. I now have my own deep and wide experience with the tools, and a discerning approach with an aim for effectiveness.

I believe that we don't just want the benefits of our practice, we live in a time where we desperately need them and there is so much fulfilment and prosperity on offer, as well as trauma and dysfunction.

My love of philosophy deepened in 2008 with a degree from University of Sydney, but has since developed through extensive trainings with Agama, Hridaya, Paul Muller-Ortega (Blue throat yoga), NARM (complex trauma), Cecily Milne (yoga detour) to name a few...

Ava is predominantly known for her thriving yoga studio, silent retreats and the unique, skilled teachers that emerge from her yoga and trauma-informed certifications. She lives in beautiful Western Australia with her husband Jarred of Kommunity brew, baby Jasmine and their fur-child Honey.
