RETREATS

Holotropic Breathwork Weekend - ONE SPACE LEFT
September 8th and 9th 
Moon Yoga, Mount Albert, Auckland 
Cost: $300 (earlybird) OR $350 (after July 1st 2018) 

Dive into the wisdom, wildness, timelessness and spirit of your subconscious through two profound practices - Holotropic Breathwork and Qoya.  Holotropic Breathwork is a profound healing modality developed by Stan Grof.   This work involves deep, continuous, rhythmic breath and the power of evocative music to take one on a healing journey within, guided by the ‘Inner Healer’ - the part of ourselves that knows exactly what we need at any given moment.   Qoya is a sacred movement practice - melding dance, yoga, sensual movement, prayer and loving community - and on this weekend two Qoya classes will serve as a way to integrate and give home to the depth experiences of the breath.  This weekend is designed to be supportive, spacious and sacred, and is co-facilitated by wonderful Andrea Anstiss, who is making the journey from Dubai to be with us, and myself.  

Spaces are limited. 
Please email to enquire and/or register.  


Qoya ‘A Place to Pray’ Retreat 
November 1st to 6th 
Slipper Island Resort, Coromandel 

For the first time in Aoteoroa/New Zealand, experience a complete Qoya retreat - tracing the energetics of the medicine wheel through four full days of movement, ceremony, sweet community and so very much precious time for deep rest and sinking into the bliss of nature.  Whakahau/Slipper Island is visible from the Coromandel, and a place we have waved to while dancing Qoya on Opoutere Beach so many times.  Historically, Slipper Island was a stopping point for canoes and a place to rest and retreat during storms.  Physically, its 225 hectares of rolling hills, pristine clear water, sweet animal friends like alpacas and a friendly eagle ray to swim with and even a lighthouse.  It truly is a place to pray, to take refuge, to heal, to restore, to strengthen, to remember, to fly forth from.   To learn more about this special place, click here.   The option to participate in Initiation Teacher Training (Level 2) is a feature of this retreat.  

Cost: $1800 US + $600 US for optional Initiation Teacher Training
Please email to enquire.  Registration opening soon.


Vision Quest Retreat ‘Painting the World Back into Existence’ 
THIS RETREAT IS FULL, PLEASE EMAIL TO GO ON WAITING LIST 
December 7th to 9th 2018 
Ashram Yoga Ohui Retreat, Coromandel 

A Vision Quest is a sacred journey taken to the wisdom-heart of the Earth when a human seeks guidance, support, love and way-showing.  For the fourth year, we will make the pilgrimage to Opoutere, stepping into the sacred.  Our theme this year is ‘Painting the World Back into Existence’.  As we stare down an ever corrupted future - where our waters, forests, air and soils are all under threat - our sense of place and purpose as a species is at a crossroads.  Do we simply give up and continue unconsciously?  Do we succumb to a deep sadness and subsequent apathy?  Or do we attempt to paint the world back into existence?  If even the tiniest part of ourselves is willing to use our creative energy to reimagine and pray for a world restored, what might be possible?  This weekend is a cry to the space beyond - not just for help, but for the faith in ourselves to remember our artistry, our power, our responsibility, our personhood and our sacred task as custodians of this unbelievably loveable Planet. 

If you feel the call, join us for ceremony, dance, nature, prayer, vision questing, community and the awe of it all in the Coromandel. 

Cost: $390 early bird (if paid by October 1st) or $450 if paid thereafter.
Please email to register.

Develop Your Intuition Level 2 - Getting Real: Uncertainty & Revelation
with Dr. Ann Kerwin 
Sunday September 2nd 2018 
Moon Yoga, Mount Albert 

Philosopher William James observed that the greatest obstacle to discovering truth may be the rest of our truths.  Often we have illusions about how 'real psychics' work.  These illusions can hinder development.  In a rare opportunity, two respected intuitives will share how they work, how they learned to work and be available to answer your questions.  Expect to reexamine fear of uncertainty and getting things wrong, and to enjoy interactive exercises and be supported by electronic follow up. 

Cost: $80
Prerequisite: Develop Your Intuition Level 1 
Please email to register. 


Develop Your Intuition Level 3 - Practical Wisdom 
with Dr. Ann Kerwin 
Sunday November 11th 2018 
Moon Yoga, Mount Albert 

This festive workshop celebrates our intuitive development and community with food, ceremony and readings.  We also look at Practical Wisdom - PHRONESIS  - as the ancient Greek Philosophers called it.  Living the intuitive life, we face situations where we can't rely on hard and fast rules about what is best to say or not say, to do or not do.  In such ceases, we call on the ability to feel our way, with integrity, to the best approach available now. 

Cost: $60 
Prerequisites: Develop Your Intuition Level 1 & 2
