The complete 3-part method delivered conveniently to transform daily life.

Our spiritual systems can be dysfunctional…

Some elements work, but others are nonsense; adopted from another context and can even be harmful to our progress.

It can take years before we realise we are going in circles.

This course presents you the frameworks and the techniques of the 3-part method of Functional Spirituality:

a system to make spiritual practice relevant, effective and optimised for the uniqueness of each individual path.

The promise

Our spiritual practice promises us health, wealth, abundance and connections.

Now, more than ever before, it is important that our practice actually delivers the results we need and desire.

Because all too often,


The 3-part method is a meditation and spiritual practice with all the obstacles removed.

Are you ready for a refreshingly resonant teaching, that transforms your inner world every time you tune in?

This is not being taught anywhere on the internet...

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

To, actually, completely change your life, you need to consider 3 different tracks of Spiritual development...

What is the Functional Spirituality retreat...

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.
