This retreat offers profound therapy for anxiety and fear, depression, addiction, pain and physical illness and relationship breakdown. 

Shunyata is a place of nurturing, caring, love, and has a spiritual healing energy. It is based in a beautiful, peaceful home in Diamond Harbour, Christchurch. It has many private spaces (including our amazing yoga deck) to relax and look out at the gorgeous bay and surrounding hills, lovely wild English gardens as well as a spa bathroom, modern kitchen, private bedrooms, treatment rooms and lounge.

If you have time to explore, there are many stunning coastal walks around Shunyata as well as three volcanic beaches just 10 minutes away. Paru also offers day excursions if you wish to get out and explore the surrounding areas.

At Shunyata we help you let go of unconscious and habitual patterns of behaviour by using tools such as The Journey method,  mindfulness, the Enneagram, yoga, meditation, nourishing food and body work. We help you to open your heart because, if our hearts aren’t open, we are numb and not experiencing the beauty of life.

All of Shunyata's therapies are well respected and most importantly work. It was the first retreat to offer The Journey in 2005, now five other retreats in Australasia are offering The Journey – it truly works as the ultimate clearing of emotional blocks. The change is on a cellular level. Please refer to the services pages for more information on Shunyata's therapies.  Every winter Paru travels the world to update her with the leaders in the field of consciousness, healing and essential oils.

We are not 5 star accommodation,  but if you are into treatments, views, therapies and amazing food we would rate ourselves nearly 5 star for 3 star prices.
