sacred earth is one of New Zealand's best kept secrets…

Sacred Earth retreat is one of New Zealand's best kept secrets. It's hard to find words to express how beautiful this space is. The house, facilities, meditation temple, bush walks, waterfalls, beach and community are stunning. Not to mention how well we were looked after by the staff. The Sacred Earth team take care of every detail and are the most flexible, kind, accommodating and generous people. They even organised a local cello player to  perform for our guests! 

We were made to feel so at home, nothing was ever too hard and we were given great privacy to do our youth program.

The house itself is so comfortable with everything we needed, beautifully decorated with a very calming energy and some of the most stunning views in the country.

It is the perfect space to run a retreat, there is plenty of room for groups to move around the property, the temple, the home and on the large deck. It's so close to the city yet you feel like you're in absolute paradise.  The environment inspired so much transformation and healing in our young people. Running our program at Sacred Earth was a key part of the success of our program and our ability to help young people to manage stress and overcome challenges. 

We couldn't be more grateful for our experience at Sacred Earth and can't wait to return again very soon. I can't recommend staying at Sacred Earth enough, for anyone who wants some time out to feel rejuvenated, this is the place.

I have just attended a day retreat at the Sacred Earth Centre, what a beautiful and special place. The day involved yoga, a raw food workshop, a walk to a waterfall, and a performance by Aidan Kelly. It was all amazing, the setting, the team, the experiences and the food served throughout the day. I highly recommend it. I left feeling refreshed and relaxed and am keen to return!

Can I just live here all the time?! I never knew I could see what I felt. Happiness, serenity, bliss, and awe. Truely a transcendent of what I`ve known I could experience. This place will forever be a place I visit in my “happy place”. What a huge gratitude to you for having us!
