Sita Bennett - Author / Actor / Filmmaker


A Bit About What I Do


I write speculative novels about self-discovery, personal transformation, & our relationship with the natural world. They follow smart, sensitive, resilient & determined young women on quests for truth, love & freedom.


I'm also a trained actress & filmmaker, and co-create independent films with my brother, Frank Bennett, that explore the mysteries of consciousness & stories of human resilience. 

Together, we co-founded Lightdance Productions.

“ Those who don't feel this Love
pulling them like a river,

Those who don't drink dawn
like a cup of spring water
or take sunset like supper,

Those who don't want to change,
Let them sleep.

- Rumi



Sita Bennett
Maya of the In-Between Book by Sita Bennett

"If you, or someone you know is quieter than most, intelligent, observant, a sensitive, this book is a dream find... It is the journey of a shy girl stepping boldly into her personal power as life unfolds chaotically around her."



"Wow. It's rare that I find a dystopian novel that is equally a utopian one. And this one is the most spiritual one I can remember reading in a while. This is especially poignant now with the situation around the world...


If you only read one dystopian novel this year - please make it this one! You won't be disappointed. "


"A story of our time without a doubt. Can’t wait for the next book from Sita Bennett !"

A film about living with Endometriosis - By Frank & Sita Bennett.jpg

A short film dedicated to women with endometriosis and other chronic menstrual disorders, too commonly dismissed as "just period pain".

The Wheel of Samsara spins.

Through multiple lives we travel, forgetting what came before, unaware of this repetitive cycle to which we are bound.

What if there was a dance that opened a doorway to the infinite possibility that lay beyond?

A Bit MoreAbout Me & My Blog



I'm interested in the changes we can make to preserve our natural world, the nuances of the human psyche, mind/body optimization, & ancient practices that have the power to unveil higher consciousness & help us breach the limits of ordinary perception. For me, this has included yoga, meditation, painfully honest self-inquiry, & the most powerful teacher I've yet discovered; Silence.


On a personal note,  this life to me is an endless exploration into the depths of what it truly means to live richly in Love, Inner Peace, Clarity & Contentment. Awake. Alive. Uninhibited. Free.


And creativity is the means to express the inexpressible.

A chronic illness that became crippling when I was 16 was one of life's greatest blessings-in-disguise, for it forced me to stop, allowing time to get lost in the wisdoms found in art, books & writing. It also provoked an inward journey of healing that delved far deeper than my physical body & continues to deepen.


When I was having little success with traditional doctors, I began an exploration into many avenues of holistic healing & natural mind/body optimisation.


On my blog I share practices, rituals, recipes & lifestyle changes that have enriched my life dramatically. I also now teach yoga & meditation, & help run retreats for the Inner Peace Foundation of W.A.


You don't have to get sick to realize you're only living out a fraction of your true potential. 


My books, films and blog are created primarily for the seekers, the sensitives, the introverts, empaths, & the innately curious of the world.


For all who sense a richer existence available, & long to embody it fully.


Love, Sita
