Recuperative Retreats for Women

"A sanctuary offering relaxation, restoration and replenishment - just for you!"

These FREE Retreats are specifically for women within the Tauranga and wider Bay of Plenty region, who have been recommended a period of rest and recuperation by a health professional and do not have the financial means to otherwise access such recuperation.

The retreat provides the opportunity for women to take a break from their day-to-day activities in order to replenish their mind, body and spirit, and at the same time receive support to make positive changes in their lives. The retreats provide a safe and secure environment for participants to experience complete rest in a quiet, reflective atmosphere.

The immeasurable value and benefit these retreats provide is the positive ripple effect on the women attending, their health and wellbeing, their children, their relationships, their families and in turn, their entire community.
