Event description


Hidden from the eyes of the world

by the mighty Himalayan peaks, Mount Kailash, the crest jewel of creation has, over millennia, drawn sincere pilgrims from many faiths to its feet to contemplate the oneness in the power of nature. Kailash is the heart and soul of the Himalayan regions and the most sacred of all the world’s holy mountains. It stands alone, in silent contemplation, above the Tibetan plains, drawing the eyes of all who come near with its power and purity. The circumambulation (walking around the mountain) is an act of penance and prayer. With each step the pilgrim is taken deeper into the silence within, whilst taking in the sacred landscape without. One circle (pradakshina) symbolises one revolution of the wheel of life or the cycle from birth to death. With each step there is purification and exaltation. This sacred journey is for a small number of spiritual seekers wishing to deepen their connection with the inner consciousness. The trek requires a reasonable level of fitness.

Organiser Kawai Purapura

Organiser of Kailash – Tibet – Manasarovar – The Ultimate Yoga Journey / 6-20 Sep 2019 (15 days)

Kawai Purapura Retreat Centre has grown steadily over the past five years, becoming one of New Zealand’s most popular destinations for retreats, conferences and seminars in natural health, environmental awareness and personal development.

Our name:
Kawai Purapura’s name signifies the nexus point between the past and the future. Kawai is the memory, ancestry, and tracing of the lineage from the past. Purapura is the seed of the future.

Our Vision:
Our vision is to create a healing space wherein people can find their own potential for being well. This vision will develop into focused healing programmes that not only serve those who lack privilege, but contribute to natural health taking a significant place in overall health care delivery.

The Retreat:
The call to retreat is the call to spirit, authenticity, and joy. It is the call to step away from the many forms of busyness in our everyday lives, to find sanctuary, time for deep reflection and to nourish the body, mind and spirit. It is the call to be in community with others who are also on a path of self-discovery. Every moment spent in meditation, yoga, and sacred community are moments that bring insight and clarity to our lives. Retreats infuse your being with inspiration on the path, which makes anything seem possible.

At Kawai Purapura we have designed a range of yoga retreats from healing and rejuvenation, to deep transformation. We bring together outstanding mentors, guides, way-showers and inspirational facilitators from around the world.

Our Philosophy:
The underlying philosophy that guides development of our retreat centre is one of harmonious living with the land. We believe the omniscient consciousness is to be found within the human heart where all is synthesised into oneness. We aim to manifest ideals of natural health and healing, spirituality, sustainable lifestyle and social responsibility.

Residental community:
At Kawai Purapura we have a residential community that offers the opportunity to live and work in harmony with each other and the environment. The residents contribute greatly to the overall vision for the land.

Workshop venues:
We offer 5 different workshop spaces varying in size, character and charm. The spaces provide an ideal environment for retreat participants to pursue self-exploration, growth and re-discover personal peace and wellbeing. Our smallest space seats 1-30 (Prema Lounge) and our largest up to 150. In the warmer summer months we also have 2 additional outdoor tents to hire.
Free WiFi is available to retreat participants with laptops in designated areas (our WiFi covers most of the indoor areas in Kawai Purapura retreat centre).

For more information about hiring a venue for your next workshop or seminar please contact retreat@kawaipurapura.co.nz.
