“From the moment I arrived at the airport and breathed in the clean, fresh air of New Zealand I could feel myself relaxing completely. My meditation tour was an investment in myself, my health and in recovering my natural equilibrium.
Without giving away too many secrets, highlights that affected me deeply and changed me include the Māori cultural centre, kayaking under a culturally-significant waterfall and being in the presence of some of the oldest trees in the world, the Kauri.
On this trip I became very aware of who I am. Kayaking under the waterfall where Māori ask for messages and express gratitude for the scope, scale and wealth of their natural environment, I felt completely purified of stale, old emotions. I gained a sense of freedom that I now remind myself about daily.
I spent time in some mangroves, where a clean river meets the great Pacific Ocean. It felt pure, healthy and cleansing. Surrounded by a great stillness, the peace broken only by beautifully singing birds, I felt a deep peace and was able to reflect on what my revised vision was for my own life. What a gift!
When I stood facing ‘The Father of the Forest’, his life-force generously helping to restore my own, I knew that I have an obligation as a human being to do what I can to help restore the health of our natural environment. This tree was like a giant castle and a wise elder, a protector and a life-guide with thousands of stories to tell and lessons to teach.
This tour offers an abundance of adventure and self-discovery. You simply must experience it all for yourself!”
