Holistic Healing Sanctuary & Wellness Clinic
The Field of Grace is a not-for-profit Holistic Healing Sanctuary that provides patrons with natural solutions and treatments to support healing processes. Combining energy healing with 100% natural pure products, treatments at The Field of Grace are designed to relax, revitalise and nurture the mind, body and spirit. Many of the therapies available also aid in dissolving long-time health issues and healing the past.
Signature Treatments at The Field of Grace utilise 100% natural therapeutic-grade oils. These luxurious and aromatic oils can be applied; different types and layers depending on the treatment chosen; from the earlobes and neck to the tips of toes – or 'Sole to Soul' as it is better known at the clinic. Each treatment specialises and targets specific areas for healing or relaxation, and most treatments include the added benefits of peaceful music and/or guided meditation.

The Field of Grace is also known to host group meditation sessions, intuition classes and tutorials, sell 100% essential oils (lavender, peppermint, thieves etc.) and handmade scented soaps, showcase gifted evidential mediums and tarot card readers and promote inner health without the use of drugs – prescription or other. Staff at The Field of Grace are passionate about self-healing: "We believe that healing comes through self-healing, rather than the relief of symptoms" (The Field of Grace brochure).
The Field of Grace was established in January, 2008 and is staffed by volunteers from the not-for-profit organisation Random Acts of Kindness, patrons who also serve as volunteers, and members of the Richmond family such as Cat, the director of the clinic. As previously stated, The Field of Grace is a not-for-profit organisation. All money raised from sales and treatments are invested directly back into the clinic, to continue helping those in need.
Whilst you're visiting The Field of Grace, you should take some time to walk in the peaceful gardens out front, or wander in the grounds of Old Petrie Town. There's seating for patrons to dwell in tranquillity – amongst flowers, plants and age-old trees. The area around The Field of Grace is also home to a myriad of bird houses, baths and nests, assorted wildlife, effigies of Buddha, Angels, Cupid sculptures and other statuettes. If you're in the mood, you could even borrow a book from the collection available at The Field of Grace to nestle down with amongst the roots of towering trees.
The Field of Grace can be found in Old Petrie Town on Dayboro Road, Kurwongbah, between the little white church and the spiritual store, My Spirit. It is open for appointments from Tuesday to Sunday, with Sunday being 'Open House' from 9am-2pm to coincide with the North Pine Country Markets. Cat Richmond and her troop of helpers can be sought out at this address, by phone or via email.
