Soul Heart Retreats

Deep nourishment, nurturing and growth

Wow, what a powerful weekend our last Sacred Honouring Retreat was…

Deep healing, connection and nourishment on all levels

It is always such an honour to witness the transformation and this weekend was no exception. There were nourishing connections to nature, each other, deep soul healing and releasing of the past. All supported by laughter, tears, compassion, reverent listening and oodles of love.

The power and healing of the Goddess expressed through the gathering of women, deep soul work, Qoya dance, labyrinth and sacred plant medicine.

Deep. Magical. Healing.

Even the weather gods and goddesses smiled upon us for the weekend.

In their own words

Thank you. I’ve not really done anything like the retreat before, and it’s fair to say with my upbringing I’ve run the other direction from anything termed ‘spiritual’!
I’m still floating on a cloud from the weekend. All that lovely relaxing, amazing food and amazing healing. I leave feeling more centred, having released a lot of unnecessary emotion and processed past hurts. I take away a better way of living true to my values and self.
Thank you Deb. I truly appreciated the weekend.


I leave today feeling loved, nurtured, welcomed and complete.
I take away honouring myself, listening to my inner voice, being kind to myself and others and being more silent and listening more.
I also feel stronger and more purposeful about decision making.
Really listening and tuning into what my heart desires.
Like Julie, I also feel like I have cracked open which allows the light to shine through to my soul, and to warm my heart with joy.
Thanks again for such a memorable weekend.


There were so many wonderful and supportive moments that gave me opportunities to dive deeper in myself and excavate, along with the space and time to be heard and witnessed by the amazing group of women.
You provide a safe and supportive container that is unassuming yet deep to the core.
The way you move the energy with your words and create a space between the spaces is a gift.
Thank you, thank you, thank you for the spaces you create to be with the Divine and heal. Always in love

Does this kind of retreat resonate with your soul?

Not sure what to expect?

Our retreats are for you if:

  • You wonder who you are, or perhaps you’ve had a glimpse of, or heard the truth of the ‘real you’ whisper but are unsure how to connect to the intuitive, all knowing you.
  • You have a deeply held but unspoken dream that is gently nudging its way into your awareness
  • You are in transition or a place of uncertainty and looking for some ease and confidence to navigate the new terrain and build a strong foundation for the future
  • You’re wanting soul connection with self and like-minded others
  • You’re ready to dive deeply into who you are; know the divinity and power that resides within, connect to your inner wisdom and power, embrace your totality and honour your pain, your fear, your power, your compassion and love…
  • You’re craving time to yourself. You are starved of time and space to be, unable to gain the perspective, energy and clarity to manage your life and responsibilities


Here’s a quick overview of the Sacred Honouring Retreat from July 2021

Thank you for holding space (providing time and place) for me to allow my dreams to surface.
Once acknowledged, you provided the safety to indulge in the ideas, emotions and possibilities surrounding those dreams, as well as the all important symbolic rituals of shedding, releasing and then planting and nurturing.


Your gentle guidance and direction through the weekend allowed space to open up providing deep insight and a spiritual connection. I have been able to take this with me and radiate this out through my family and the clients I work with. My only request is that you do these retreats more frequently.


Thank for you for teaching me to appreciate silence… I came home with a better understanding of my husband who has always said if you have, nothing to say why speak? I learnt the beauty of silence and the knowledge that can be gained by being in this space with ones own self & nature.


The weekend was hard for me but I have come away treasuring every moment. Deep within myself I am so much calmer and my new reserves are now acting as the much needed buffer I needed to deal with the current changes in my life.

Whatever happened over the weekend has allowed me to move forward from the quicksand and see the next steps in my journey (which I will need to come and see you about). It is still early days, but I am enjoying a more even keel. Thank you, thank you, thank you.

Once I know my reserves are well replenished, clarity is my next journey, releasing my brain/heart from the numbness that has surrounded them and acknowledging my own strengths and abilities.

With deep respect


I arrived on Friday evening feeling tired and overwhelmed, dehydrated and in need of an awful lot more than just food, water and rest. I left feeling full in very sense of the word and will be taking away the courage to shine my light brightly and unashamedly.
I am now sitting at home in my rocking chair contemplating and processing my incredible journey over the last few days.
Some very deep transformative energies at play, so I’m excited to watch it all play out.
An immense and overwhelming gratitude to both of you, for another amazing weekend.
So in awe of the depths you operate at/from Deb. You hold space like no other, and you do so much more than that.
Thank you from the souls of my feet to the deep recesses of my heart.


I enjoyed everything no matter what it brought.
I left feeling I had done so much work that I had never imagined before I came.
I’m feeling tired in a good way and there were so many surprises arising from who I am over this weekend.
Thanks Debbie for your facilitating. It was non-intrusive and brings out the soul to examine. The retreat was amazing. Thank you very much.


I am so grateful. 
The weekend has allowed me to find a sense of peace and calmness within myself, and a clarity of direction. I have released burdens I have held onto for too long.
I feel renewed and with a sense of new direction.


Each year, I hold at least one intimate, weekend women’s retreat at a beautiful location north of Auckland.

While your healing journey is a unique and individual process, being part of a group enables healing to occur more quickly and at a deeper level. Powerful connection and transformation occurs within the crucible of women gathering together.

You will experience:

  • Space for you to breathe and just be
  • Deep connection to self, others and nature
  • The healing power of sacred plant medicine
  • Deep soul healing and transformation
  • Nourishment of mind, body and soul
With a balance of reflection time, connection to nature, creative expression, release, joy and a gentle process of discovery, unfoldment and empowerment, you will leave these weekends renewed, refreshed and reconnected.
