Healers' Retreat
Sharda Retreat Centre
May 3 - 5 2024


A rejuvenating gathering of healers in a beautiful natural environment where we share ideas, pampering, and learning.

Hosted by Sharon Parker

This is a healing practitioners' / bodyworkers' / spiritual business owners' retreat for receiving.  Therapists and healers are good at giving, but we can sometimes be poor receivers.  This is a weekend about givers gathering to receive from each other, be inspired by each other, and to be held and pampered in a quiet and rejuvenating space in the natural environment of Sharda Retreat Centre, just south of Auckland New Zealand.  There will be an emphasis on community, mindfulness, receiving and refueling.  We are fortunate to have a craniosacral therapist and a massage therapist onsite over the weekend.  This will be at your own cost, and for you to arrange directly with them.  Find out about them and their contact details here. The bush offers a beautiful healing sanctuary, there will be space for spontaneous activities that arise through our interactions, and on the Saturday evening we will unite our energies in Dances of Universal Peace.

Here is the current plan - we will update it as more facilitators register, so keep an eye on this site:

The sessions will be interspersed with plenty of free time to relax, chat, walk in the bush, receive a massage etc. Meals will be vegetarian, lunches and dinners catered and breakfast self-service. A small amount of collaborative work will be needed to set up, tidy away and get the dishes done. We will each do our own dishes and roster any additional kitchen duties - there is no dishwasher! This is a not-for-profit event. We are aiming to cover costs while also acknowledging the contribution of presenters/facilitators by discounting their fee.

If you have something you wish to share, present or facilitate please contact Sharon here.
