We'll unplug and explore ourselves on a self sufficient journey on a slope overlooking the Pacific Ocean. We'll slow down and reconnect with nature and breath through native healing and creativity. Transformed, we'll enjoy native earth oven meals all against one of New Zealand's most soul-filling coastal hillsides.
Enjoy an intimate setting in our beautiful Coromandel where my ancestors adventured, flew kites and made creative art from nature. On this adventure we will connect with our creative energy and selfactualise. Expect elements of hiking, yoga, & spirituality to help you learn to turn fear into passion. This Adventure combines nature benefits of a coastal hike with the relaxing cognitive energy of Maori Art and Craft. Our philosophy is "Ko a tatou nga kaitiaki o nga taonga o Rangi raua ko Papa" - We are the guardians of things belonging to Father Sky and Mother Earth. Mauora dressed in native trees and flora welcomes you to come and replenish.
We can pick people up from Auckland International Airport and take them to a nearby town to stay the night and get supplies and then set off to Mauora. You could otherwise make your way to Auckland's Downtown ferry to the Coromandel and be picked up to go to Mauora. It is a 2 1/2 hour drive and a half hour drive from the ferry. The ferry ride takes a few hours, and the bus from the airport to downtown is a half an hour. The driveway to Mauora is very steep and rough and the roads are unpredictable due to it's remote natural environment.
Sometimes I may not be available during your stay due to business or study but will employ another professional I have trained.
It is a rugged road to Mauora. There are only 5 spots available.
