Body, Mind, Spirit, and Heart

Temple and Bungalow 2_edited.png



I will craft a beautiful personalized Ways of Wellness retreat specifically for YOU that encompasses body, mind, heart, & spirit practices so you can go deeper into your own healing journey.


Held at our home in the bush, Birdsong Retreat & Sanctuary, you will stay in the Buddha Bungalow which offers stunning views of the Akaroa Harbour and you will be serenaded by the myriad calls of the local birdlife.


All retreats begin with working with your physical body temple. You will be provided with three delicious, nutrient dense, organic, wholesome meals per day and you will have the choice to have meals with us or on your own.


I can then tailor a wellness package for you which might include any of the modalities I offer: Shamanic practices, counseling, breathwork, homesteading/organic gardening knowledge.


A fully enriched weekend 2-night retreat might look like:


Arrival day:

  • Arrive & settle in

  • Property walk & talk – meet the guardians of the land and find our hidden sacred spaces

  • Evening Meal

  • Opening session with me in the Temple of Venus
