This is a small retreat centre near Titirangi Village in West Auckland. It is based in a holistic lifestyle which incorporates Spirituality into daily life through meditation, yoga, prayer and mindfulness, there is no religious basis and all are welcome, whatever their beliefs. The food is vegetarian and there is an organic garden. It is close to public transport and the walks of the Waitakere Ranges. Helpers with a calm, positive nature and an interest in meditation fit in well.

We are especially looking for some help at present with setting up a new website and social media to help the retreat centre grow. Ideally someone with graphic design experience would be really good.

We always appreciate helpers who can offer skills of gardening, painting, cooking, building, landscaping and cleaning. We love positivity and ways to help make this a beautiful place for those to come on retreat. We have a cat, some fish and a new beehive full of busy bees.

Helpers with specialist landscaping and gardening experience, with good skills in pruning and shaping plants, planting, weeding, growing vegetables - those with a good eye for beauty will be especially helpful.

Also help with website, marketing, social media and graphic design is always welcome.

Those with culinary skills who wish to share their local recipes are wonderful guests, although many helpers have acquired cooking skills whilst here.

Helpers usually give about 25 hours in exchange for accommodation and meals, alongside help with doing the dishes. However flexibility of hours and days is always open to discussion. Please feel very welcome to get in touch with any questions.
