“Winter is the slow-down. Winter is the search for self. Winter gives the silence you need to listen. Winter goes gray so you can see your own colors.” ~ Terri Guillemets

“Stillness is what creates love.  Movement is what creates life.  To be still and still moving — this is everything” – Do Hyun Cho


Read what attendees have said about previous workshops:

“The Art Workshop was cathartic, uplifting, and releasing = freedom. I love Lisa’s teaching style – she presents an informative approach with a well paced, lighthearted manner while retaining the sacred space of yoga & meditation for those participating.   Kathy’s dedication to “food is your medicine” is apparent in the quality of the food from your property and the love and time you put into creating a healthy balanced menu for workshop participants.   Your herbal/food/fermentation knowledge is paramount for health & well-being.”  Margy,  Akaroa

“Both the art & yoga workshops were great. I am over 60 years old now and have been ‘working’ on myself for 30+ years. The workshops have been a useful contribution to that work.” –  Sara,  Akaroa

“It runs like a well oiled machine and is a beautiful way to spend time. Long may they continue.”  – Dell, Christchurch
