Maori Healing Body Course here at Shunyata - 11-13 December

Maori Healer Coming to Shunyata – 11-13 December

So sorry didnt attach dates and filling fast

I am so so excited to welcome a being who has been to Shunyata twice– she was the best version of a 2 on the enneagram I have ever met, humble, light and incredibly wise. She even worked on my clients with me – it was amazing. Well life went on as it does,and we always talked of doing spiritual tours through NZ which I held deeply,but on heading to Northland in the past couple of months – I made contact again and took a beloved friend to her weekend workshop in Tauranga. That wast I had to bring her here.  She does with the body what I do with the heart and
soul.

She has travelled the world with authentic amazing maori healing working on Shirley Mclaine and Susan Saradon – and is the real mcoy. Part of the reason for coming home after 27 years was to connect with maori healers and have felt her the only authentic and real one.

Most of you who have come to Shunyata have heard me talk about the importance of getting out of the mind and into the body, especially in these harrowing times.Well this weekend is about that. She works like I do – taking you beyond your own limitations and pushing you to truly open and get back into your body from her ancient teachings of her grandmother. Lightness, tough love and humour are all there,and I have never felt so aligned with another healer as much as I do with this being.We work with a rakha, a stick to teach you how to open your own body and heal and it’s incredible. We arrived at the hot pools on the Saturday night and all the ladiesasked us what we were on – they wanted some. Pure openenss and connection with body is how I felt. Even the heart grief shifted fast when it came up.


You will take home tools to heal your own body and any body worker will love it.

Depending on numbers will be held here at Shunyata 10 Rawhiti Street Diamond HarbourI promise you will love this weekend.

Pick up from ferry 4.50pm and 8.50am sat and sunday

Bookings will fill up as many people interested so get in quick.

So you have been diagnosed with an Illness, Cancer or whatever - 1st Nov 2020

So you have been diagnosed with an Illness, Cancer or whatever

Best Wellness Retreat NZ


Shunyata has been open for 17 years this summer and Paru has never stopped upgrading herself with the latest and best natural treatments for illness, emotional healing, trauma and the enneagram (patterns of unconcious behaviour).

The spiritual awakening that can come from an illness and the deepening of one’s soul and being is the gift that can be left and Paru deeply believes that after having a traumatic wake up call herself, which prompted her to come home and open Shunyata  Retreat and Day Spa, working
beyond the mind, which is fear doubt and judgement.

On listening to the experts from the USA this morning – she was prompted to write another blog listening to Rashid Buttar, a USA expert on immune and cancer.

Best Healing Retreat NZ

 

Why you should come to Shunyata if you have some sort of Illness or Breakdown

1. We do an amazing ayurveda detox, liver or colon or doterra cleanse & restore  – especially for your individual type or a cleanse and restore with doterra.

2. We have an ozone sauna for optimasation of oxygen, a chi machine and a vibration machine for lymph

3. We can help you repair your immune system with pure essential oils and protocols for different illnesses and alkalise the body.

4. Most importantly with the enneagram and the journey method, we can clear childhood trauma and teach you emotional intelligence and help you to meet unmet trauma, anger, sadness and grief – as per Gabor Mate – expert in addictions and illness – a huge part of people dying.

5. You are in a gorgeous, ocean view peaceful environment with birdsong and one of the only retreats in australasia where you are given one on one attention max of 2 people at a time and the best value for money.

6. We look at unconcious behaviours, the enneagram, which can be the main reset you need not to get cancer or an illness back – change your perception, see what is your flavour of ego or suffering and bring consciousness to it.

7. Fall in love with your being, not your doing, egoic nature, but your soul and feel a deep sense of peace and wellbeing.

8. Feel supported and empowered – you get to know the wisdom of your own body and get supported in whatever you chose to do but everyone needs inspiration

9.  When you raise your consciousness this increases your healing ability.

Stan Walker on Sunday and Childhood Violence and Trauma - 29th Sep 2020

Stan Walker on Sunday and Childhood Violence and Trauma

Childhood Trauma - Shadow Work


Did anyone see the amazing life story of Stan Walker and the abuse he had in childhood and the  courage he has had to get through it. For me it brought back the memory of  the movie  "Once Were Warriors" which I saw in Australia where a friend shared,” at least NZ has the guts to share a worldwide problem.”  Not everyone can do this on their own - there is help.

It is a worldwide problem and it is the reason I came home to work with people in my own country rather than in Australia after 27 years overseas. Yes it is in maori families but it is also in pakeha families and is rife and causes unconcious behaviour and a pattern that continues unless it is stopped. I too had a violent father and a dramatic mother who fueled the fire for him, so I witnessed until 12 years old that violent behaviour, had a food addiction , and would have continued on in my life copying that behaviour, had I not had a wake up call 32 years ago and
had to get real on how much it was affecting my life.. 

Best Wellness Retreat NZ 


Gabor Matte, the famous doctor and drug addiction expert quotes - The Main cause of
illness and addiction is unmet sadness, grief and anger and childhood trauma.


Sexual or Physical Childhood Trauma
The first seven years of our life we take in what we see in our parents. Some of it bad and some of it good and some of us go on and despite watching the bad, makesome good of it. But many continue the pattern or it gets worse. Some of us have the courage to do the work on our own, but we don’t see the hidden and unconcious behaviours that are running us in our everyday life. One day it catches up with you in an illness, depression, addiction or social problem etc.
I ask if the stomach cancer was inherited or was what he couldn't stomach.

Shadow Work and the Enneagram

At Shunyata we go back to a childhood memory and the behaviour and patterns appearing
and clear it out on a cellular leve with The Journey Method and The Enneagram - clearing
out the shadow for good.   We come to a place of forgiveness from the soul, and in this part for me my whole victim story stopped and I knew I had to work with this work.This is not from the mind, it is the body leading to the soul so it is permanent.  I feel so honoured and blessed to see people truly know who they are deeply as peace, as love as freedom.I have been working with this enneagram work for over 30 years and 17 of it in Shunyata retreat and believe truly covid is bringing this all up right now.I am passionate about helping others find their way toward consciously creating more fulfilling relationship, work, and life experiences. I believe that the only way we can make our own individual lives better and that of humanity as a whole is for each of us to work to wake up and become more conscious, present, and alive and along   This works, it works it works.

comment from client
Best decision I made in 2017 to come to Shunyata. I came here to rebalance, relax and recharge not really knowing what The Journey was - but wow, it was a powerful experience that has had quite significant impacts on parts of my life that were weighing me down. It's indescribable really and an experience and place I will never forget.I arrived feeling overwhelmed, defeated and deflated. I left feeling vibrant, hopeful, loved, excited and with a whole new appreciation for myself, others and life in general. Thanks Paru x

Faith is chosing to believe that all is good and hope is there, there is a purpose to your life.

From my violent childhood, to my wake up call and beyond – I feel so grateful for my courage, my teachers and my freedom and now it’s your turn.   Let me take you by the hand with gentleness and love and set you free. You can come for a day – Ultimate Healing Day, a 3 day retreat or a 5 day detox and or weight loss retreat –  or a gorgeous couples retreat 3 or 5 days where you do the work individually then meet as love.

Beautiful location and delicious food
I was in Shunyata for a detox retreat and it was a most wonderful experience. Paru was so caring, and cooked the most delicious and nutricious meals.Her Journey session and treatments were life changing! She introduced me to the Enneagram types and I felt so empowered to know my type and to know how powerful and truly unique I am! I can't want to go back! :  Pow Sydney

5 day mind and body retreat, reinforce and refresh
When I signed up to Shunyata I was nervous, vulnerable and had expectations of what I thought I needed. It took me several months to find somewhere that I felt was right for me. Once I locked in Shunyata I was determined. I was emailed beforehand by Paru asking me lots of information about myself; my lifestyle and my habits (good and bad). I arrived at Diamond Harbour and was greeted with a massive HUG and a big smile by Paru and I immediately knew that I would be in good hands (literally). Each day brought physical and mental challenges and raised my self awareness. It wasn't easy, it shouldn't be! It wasn't someone telling my what to do and how to do it! It was about lifting my awareness and belief in myself. After 5 days I felt amazing; light, clear, appreciation, forgiveness and appreciation. I lost 6kg in 8 days and I left with a love for food in moderation, forgiveness in infancy and love in abundance. Thank you Paru.  Marin Napier


Abour Paru - I was a food addict

I have to admit that food is my life and even after many years of therapy and learning to love
my body, don't get me wrong - I look back and have come a long way , but I’m 63 now and finding that my metabolism has slowed down incredibly and knowing all I know and trying so many things that could have been wrong, just couldn’t shift the weight that used to be easy. Combined with covid and the stresses that add to it which increase emotional eating – I am finally on the way down to that new, loved and cherished body that has energy, lifeforce and juice for life again for spring.   I hadn't eaten badly, just too much and used it as a reward and crutch in life.The belly fat had to go.  I am so so excited to share these tips of years and years of healthy weight loss.Not only will you love your body. It  will prevent diabetes, reduce the risk of dementia and obesity, power up your brain, boost your mood and motivation and clear inflammation in the body.  For 16 years I have been helping people physically, emotionally and spiritually to be the best version of themselves. I have noticed over covid that so many online courses lose the personal touch and you just become one in a wheel of names, and want to offer a weight loss that combines back touch, personal attention and inspiration and love.

Recent testimonial

MC UK Inc.5 days ago
I came across Shunyata Retreat whilst searching for an escape from the mental stress of every day life. I was hesitant at first, as I like to research deep before committing to SPA and Wellness retreats, especially one that I need to fly to! I chose the Ultimate Bliss - 3d/2n package after some lite reading and a brief conversation with Paru. I arrived at her peaceful retreat with an open mind with no expectations, and felt at ease from the moment I arrived. The Enneagram and The Journey are very powerful tools. Paru guides you through these sessions, not only making you feel at ease, but ensuring you are receiving all the benefits and value from doing them. The yoga, ozone sauna, oils, and massages, are all amazing touches to the overall experience. There is plenty of free time during the 3 days too. I chose to walk down to the bay, explore the peaceful surroundings and listen to the ocean. Paru's has a great selection of books in her library, for the guys I would recommend anything by David Deida. Paru is very knowledgeable and experienced in what she offers. Her hospitality, food and conversations are all 10/10! I would recommend Shunyata to anyone looking for a similar experience. I left the retreat knowing more about myself, a clearer mind, and references to further reading that will keep me on a clearer direction in life. Thank You Paru. - Mits

NZ Childhood Trauma Retreat

The statistics say that 67% of people have had some sort of childhood trauma event in their past like physical, emotional and alcohol and substance abuse which ultimately causes problems later on in life with 7 out of 10 causes of death, as per the“ACE survey ‘adverse childhood experience done in the 1990’s.

This can be

        *   Parents separating or divorce,

  • Physical, sexual, or emotional abuse,

  • Physical and emotional neglect,

  • Domestic violence,

  • Mental illness in the family,

  • Substance abuse,

  • Incarceration by a related family member.

Right now this is having a huge effect on your immune ,your gut health and can lead to increased risk of diseases, like hepatitis, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, cancer, diabetes, and heart disease. dementia, ,autoimmune diseases, chronic fatigue,fybromyalgia and eating disorders.

Different Types of Trauma

PTSD – response to specific event – car accident, sexual assault etc but today I am going to talk about
Developmental & Attachment trauma

This sets up your relationship with yourself and people, the ability to feel safe and helps you with adult stresses. More than 50% of people have been affected before 4 years old.

1. Emotional neglect- This one is not so obvious as it is not remembered, we were never asked how we felt so we didn’t develop emotional intelligence. This should be taught in schools and is now at epidemic levels. We feel empty and hold a  wall around our emotions.

2. Integenerational trauma – inherited from grandparents, epigenetics- what happens in utero.
This I can truly confirm in myself with my immune.

3. Things happen before age 4 – most critical time – in early attachment trauma, separation in early life, insecure attachment, earlier makes more crucial..Our experiences in childhood that impact our biology, personality, our immune behaviour as drives or survival mechanisms of over achiever perfectionist, low self worth, feeling deficient, sabotage, workalcholishm, depression, bi-polar and many mental disorders.This is where the enneagram comes in – patterns of unconcious behaviour that take starts around 4 years old.

Stress

We cannot blame the outside for stress anymore, it is all about perception and how we are wired. It is a crisis of disconnection syndrome from being connected to our essence or true self, our level of groundedness , calm and heart connection.. It takes courage and awareness to face emotions and do the deep work, but ultimately it is life changing. We cannot do the spiritual bypass anymore but go back and dig deep so we can live this human life which can be traumatic in itself.

Nervous Response

We either have triggered fight/flight response which can cause inflammation or a dorsal or freeze response where the vagus nerve is in a shutdown or flat mode state which can cause chronic fatigue, depression or bipolar where we are too overwhelmed to deal with things at the time.

Great video on importance of emotional work on your immune response

https://youtu.be/VJOv9HfiMU0

Here at shunyata when we do the Journey and the enneagram work we go back with a guided meditation where we establish the trauma known or unknown, then allowing us to reparent our inner child, come to a forgiveness on a cellular level which quietens the mind, brings you back to presence and love and helps you to reset boundaries and re-energise your life force. This ultimately boosts your immune and helps with your stress responses.

We also practice vagus nerve stimulators such as meditation, yoga, high vibrational essential oils, gratitude, rest, compassion, self love and groundedness which ultimately lead to more joy and openess for life. We also address circadia rythms and sleep and food preferences through ayurveda and essential oils.  It's all about you!

Where we have had the best success has been up, depreshutdown and heartbreak from relationship breakup, depression, low energy, phobias, eating disorders, anxiety, addictions, sexual abuse, and so many more in the16 years of helping people at a deep cellular level. It is your birthright to reclaim your essence - your innocence and this can be possible on
retreat in NZ.  Give it to yourself and leave with a holiday where you leave your baggage behind.

Beyond Meditation Retreat NZ - 20th Aug 2020

Beyond Meditation Retreat NZ

Meditation Retreat NZ

What google says:

Meditation, which is the practice of focused concentration, bringing yourself back to the moment over and over again, actually addresses stress, whether positive or negative." Meditation can also reduce the areas of anxiety, chronic pain, , depression, heart disease and high blood pressure.

Meditating helps us to control our mind and thoughts and turn off our mind when we do not need it anymore. Meditation is essential to feel well and live a Happy Life. But why? Meditation can help us to eliminate negative thoughts, worries, anxiety, all factors that can prevent us feeling happy.

The importance of meditation is paramount in these times. Most people give up after trying meditation, but Shunyata means quiet mind and it is a practice that will help you find the truth and clarity inside of yourself. If the mind is full of fear,doubt and judgement, wouldn’t you love to give it a break There is another place to live, that is in the truth of our bodies ,our hearts and ultimately our souls.

Spiritual Retreat NZ

At Shunyata we go deeper than just meditating, so after a stay here – most people have met that place deep beyond the mind withThe Journey method and find clarity to move forward in their lives. Yes we have a guided meditation every night, chakra balancing, abdominal breathing and all bringing us back to this moment and Paru believes that sometimes the body needs to move in yoga to have that stillness and so shunyata is also offering one of the also a NZ Yoga Retreat or dancing like no-one is watching,to come to that quiet mind.

Ultimately we want to be present, which means no thought of past, no thought of future, just here now. Presence is pure love and if we arrive in this place, everything in life looks good. Food tastes better, the heart is open, there is never a problem – the only problems come from the mind in the past being the story and in the future which causes anxiety. Eventually with vigilence, life becomes a meditation, when you are present in every moment.

Let go of your story, so the universe can write a new one for you

 

Imagine being in a beautiful peaceful  ocean view sanctuary overlooking the yachts bobbing on the water where your mind is quiet. Imagine having clarity and hope for your future. Meditation and quiet at Shunyata will give you the tools to move onto your next chapter. Maybe it’s your life purpose, maybe a new job, maybe a new way to be in relationship -all of these creative juices will be tantalised, opened and nurtured, as here it's about uniquely you.  You are not just a crowd of people with all different needs.

Recent testimonial from male client

My wife booked the retreat and I was keen but uncertain of what it would be like. I found it to be one of the most peaceful and relaxing places I have visited. Paru encourages honesty but I never felt that I had exposed too much of myself and there is a sense of a burden lifted and a new sense of lightness. Our relationship needed to get back on track and after the weekend I felt that my wife and I had reconnected and had fallen in love all over again. The food was without exception delicious and Paru has a real interest and respect for her clients. I have seen counsellors before but have never gone so deep into childhood issues and lift with a new sense of respect for who I am and what I can achieve.

Shadow, Persona and Ego in Full Force - 9th Jun 2020

Shadow, Persona and Ego in Full Force

SHADOW, PERSONA & EGO PATTERNS

 

COVID was  a global meditation retreat which noone signed up for..How did you use this time? There had never been a better time to do the work on yourself and if you did this, you bow down to COVID19 with gratitude for having this time and space.  All illusions of pleasure and safety and
freedom were taken away from us and stripped us back - to 

Retreat NZ


We can let covid take us down - or use it to awaken.The unconcious behaviours which run 95% of our life were showing up in full force in this time of uncertainty because they are a survival mechanism, but they can’t work anymore.Is it time for you to come and sort out how to show up in this world so that the world can benefit?Are you sick of doing the same shit and living in the society that is the cult? Your soul matters, your essence matters! This is the time to go deeper.

When we stop and be still – we have to face the dark, our shadows, our ego – the parts of ourself we don’t love. So I am sure many unmet feelings were coming up at this time and you didn't  know how to deal with them. Believe me – emotional intelligence was never taught in schools and should be on the curriculum, so you are not alone.  The fear, sadness and anger
have to be felt as part of the clearing.

Spiritual Retreat NZ

At Shunyata we will bring you to your soul, to your essence, your purpose so you can take this and make a difference.Yes you will need to go into the fire and burn what is not you – yes it takes courage but here you are held in a safe embrace to do this – so what is beating inside of you comes out alive to the world. You will experience a freedom beyond ego and personality to show up as your true self. You will wake up a dormant fire in your belly and claim back your lifeforce and you will take back the power of your divinity. Yes you need to be vulnerable – but this is the true power.

WHAT IS EGO, PERSONA, SHADOW, LOWER SELF

According to Jungian analyst Robert A. Johnson, “The persona–or ego–is what we would like to be and how we wish to be seen in the world….The ego is what we are and know about consciously. The shadow is that part of us we fail to see  or know.”

While each type has strengths and strong points, each type also has a shadow— aspects of experience, thoughts, and feelings they remain unconscious to. As a  product of ancient spiritual and wisdom traditions, the Enneagram is an “objective” map of both the patterns associated with waking consciousness—and shadow aspects we remain unconscious to. By helping us see, own, and develop our blind spots and  disowned feelings, the Enneagram supports us in becoming conscious of all of who we are and manifesting our highest potentials.

Why We Should Meet Our Shadows or our Dark Sides or our Egos

1. Cause they are loaded with treasures and gifts about self – when we meet the dark we have more light.

2. It is a shadow so it is leaky, somehow it leaks out or spills out in reaction not response.

3. It wants to be seen, it wants our love, to be accepted and integrated by us – it is a part of us.

4. Takes a lot of our lifeforce – to keep it shutdown – we use so much energy –

5. Not bad to have it , it had a very good reason it exist, to keep us safe and to get love and sustenance . It has been our persona and our mask but to truly grow up we need to  bring awareness  to it to let it go.

6. Often the dark side of ourselves – is the nemisis of the gifts and the purpose we could be living.

7. Brings us back to our power and our authenticity

8. When someone says drop your ego, at least you know your flavour. We are not all like Donald Trump – some of us hide from the world.

9. Most people on a spiritual path bypass the dark shadow work and this. To be whole you have to meet the dark to have more light and authenticity.

These shadows or dark sides were formed early in life around 3 years old and they are defence mechanisms to feel safe. They are behaviours that we form in relation to our environment.Maybe,as our parents are our main caregivers at this time until we go to school, they are usually in reaction or similar to the parents. For myself in my family of 5 – there were 3 that ended up like my father and myself who ended up like my mother, but that does vary.

Resilience When we Emotionally Release

When trauma or crisis happens in life or in relationship we go into powerlessness (masculinereaction) and unloveability (feminine reaction). We then can react or respond. We need to unblock these emotions as they can cause illness and more addiction, shutdown and disassociation.I have often said, as per Gabor Mates work – the unmet sadness, grief and anger ,what he proved in the many years in his work, was the reason for illness and addiction.

When we remove the veils from our heart we become one with the world.

Emotional Release Work You can Do at Home

1. Put the person who you have an issue with in front of you in a pillow and dialogue

2. Put on music and shake through that emotion – move the body

3. If you have a scream inside put your both hands over your mouth and scream

4. Grab a large pillow and thump out anger on the side of your arms

5. If there is grief – open our your heart, lean back and moan out the sadness and grief on your chest

6. If you have essential oils – use breathe and console for grief.

7. Use breath, sound, movement and awareness.

I believe that the mind can't do this, it  has to be experienced - it can't be done online, believe me I have done so many onlines courses.  Whether you are suffering from despression, anxiety, a
physical illness, a marriage breakup, loss of a job,  a lack of lustre for life and really want to change  and sick of the same old
the Ultimate Bliss Retreat 3 days  or Ultimate Healing Day if you live in Christchurch will
set you on the path to freedom for the next step post covid


.

The soul of the world is whispering for us to come home to our true selves - give yourself this awakening
