~ Nature Ceremonies & Offerings

Nature ceremonies support life transitions, closure and new beginnings. We share in these offerings and blessings to support greater perspective, clarity and momentum for positive personal, life, work and relationship growth. This is an ideal opportunity to deepen reflection for where you have come from, close chapters and prepare and envisage the time ahead.  

~ Māori Teachings & Wisdom of the Lands of Aoeteroa

We offer an intimate setting for you to receive sacred Maori and universal knowledge that is known as " Wananga." It offers keys to spiritual intelligence, personal wellbeing and ancient heartways to help you in modern life. As we sit on the land, around the fire and visit sacred sites, we will be learning attainied Maori and earth based wisdom practices that guide and benefit us on a day-to-day basis.

~ Nature Quest

Day and night Nature Quests are offered, both in group settings and solo. This sacred space in the stillness of nature, offers you the space to receive visions, clarity and confidence for inner and outer aspects of your life as well as answers to situations you may be facing. It supports greater meaning and trust in the unfolding of life and insights on self-responsibility. This involves a powerful  prayer similar to the Vision Quest Rite of Passage.

~ Elemental Initiation Meditation

Ancient, shamanic ways of communing and purifying using the life force found in rivers, waterfalls, forests and elements help us revitalise and heal our past as well as reoccurring patterns. These sacred practices help achieve greater harmony, increase health and bring balance to mind-body-spirit. It is also an important space to help cultivate trust and healing in the face of dis-ease, fear and personal challenges.

~ Nature Walks and Teachings

We will be walking along magnificent forest and beach trails in the rugged wild lands of New Zealand. During our time we will be exploring inner and outer terrain while expanding consciousness and deepening self-love.

~ Music & Movement Medicine

We work with the healing quality of music and sound, sharing indigenous and heart-centred songs from around the world as well as free flowing vocalisations. These music and active meditative practices bring us beyond the conscious mind to unite and expand along with creation, our deep creativity, joy and laughter. Celebration.

~ Integration, Practical Steps & On-going Support

We offer practical support to help you integrate what you've learned and experienced back into daily life, including holistic practices, daily actions, self-accountability and self-love. These in-person sessions and on-going, remote consultations help you in the blossoming of your life, work and relationships as well as navigate your terrain once you are home. 



Held in the enchanted, mystic lands of Aotearoa, New Zealand. We find ourselves in the West Coast of the North Island, surrounded by the lush ancient forests and expansive pure waters. Sacred and powerful, home to ancestors & vibrant communities, we are grateful to gather at special sites and to be based in the Temple Lands near Bethell's Beach and making excursions into the surround lands and waters.  

We are welcomed on to these lands, to share wisdom and practices, opening us up further to the essence of our inner being and together feeling the natural beauty unfolding / Papatuanuku.
