The Nurturing hand of Nature.

Busy lives often make it difficult to allow for the quiet retreat necessary to reconnect, feel grounded and aligned with what is most important.

Life can be full of stressful activity and fragmented thinking, with no pause for deeper consideration of what we want and how we want to feel.

Nature creates calm and accelerates self-discovery, free from the usual distractions.

Reflecting upon natural beauty enhances our ability for self-reflection and exploration.

Individuals or couples join us in our New Zealand sanctuary.

Small groups assemble in beautiful places in New Zealand, Australia and internationally by request. Healthy food, great company and accommodation ranging from luxurious to comfortable. 

Three, five and seven-day retreats allow for deep exploration and integration.

We harness the natural environment to unwind and open to fresh perspectives returning you home with:

  • A deep sense of peace and spaciousness

  • The clarity for your next phase to unfold

  • A toolkit of techniques to help you stay connected

  • A reignited passion for life and self-expression


Retreat, balance and align here. 

Karen shares her Retreat experience...

“The Nurtured by Nature retreat was one of the best five days I have spent in beautiful Golden Bay, NZ, with the most amazing people!  Sue has a special gift as a facilitator and is an amazing communicator bringing a unique quality to this retreat, intuitively guiding us through each stage.  

The work we covered was very comprehensive, beginning with what we wanted to achieve and moving through the awareness of our patterns of behaviour, and how impacting and limiting they can be.  I found this particularly enlightening.

Having the time to stop and look inward, identifying these patterns, our skills and how we infused these in our lives was fascinating.  The exercises and techniques were personalised for each of us, making for an incredibly unique experience.  

I came away feeling relaxed, empowered and with the necessary tools gained throughout the week to stay centred.  I now feel able to make decisions and deal more effectively with whatever situations arise.  I would thoroughly recommend this retreat with Sue to anyone wanting to feel clarity, be reinvigorated and move their life in a positive direction."
