New Closed fb group Paru's Empowering Wisdom for True Wellness - 24th Feb 2021

New Closed fb group Paru's Empowering Wisdom for True Wellness


Hello beloveds

I hope you are all well in this ascension time on the planet and rising in love.

My big news for 2021 is I am starting a closed fb group to eventually take over Shunyata called Paru’s Empowering Wisdom for True Wellness.My work is changing slowly and a fb group is the first step to those changes.

For people who know me - I am a no bullshit type of person and can honestly say that life has taught me so much, as I have never stopped learning and growing since my wake up call over 30 years ago.  So wisdom comes from life experience and looking around at other empowerment sites, I can truly say that I do share wisdom.  I have studied Ayurveda in India, Yoga in India,
Craniosacral with a meditative approach in India, The Journey training at least 3 times in Australia and overseas which encompasses NLP and The Enneagram (a huge passion) in depth with so many different courses , and the list goes on , as well as learning from my clients at Shunyata.  The last year with covid has been a true ascension in my being,  and for this want to share it more and will be travelling more in New Zealand in the future as I will not be having any innoculation.

This will be an interactive sharing group as collaboration is the only way to go. We are all wise in our own ways and if we put that wisdom together we can truly grow.

I will use topics including

  1. Importance of self love
  2. Importance of prayer and a higher power
  3. Ayurveda and tips
  4. Emotional Healing & The Journey method
  5. Menopause & Perimenopause
  6. Hormones and how to deal with it and the endocrine system
  7. Candida and autoimmune
  8. What is epigenitics
  9. Benefits of natural over taking drugs
  10. Best exercise for aging
  11. How NLP and hypnotherapy can help for phobias & Weight loss for your type
  12. Benefits of yoga going into old age
  13. Allergies and some tips
  14. Relationships – how to do it better - using the enneagram
  15. Masculine/ feminine energies
  16. True weight loss and what diet right for you
  17. What is abundance and how to manifest
  18. Thyroid and the importance of balancing
  19. How to deal with grief and using parents as legacy
  20. Ozone therapy & hydrogen peroxide uses
  21. Parenting in this age of wise children - what works and interviews
  22. How to prevent dementia and alzheimers
  23. Benefits to making life easy with high vibrancy esential oils
  24. Ascension and awakening in these times
  25. Relationship with death and ancestral clearing

There will be many more topics with interviews, good research tips and some live from me (letting go of image ego).I would love you to join us and to tell your friends -we will have fun, grow and share wisdom together.  

I will run a competition to get the group started - anyone who joins this group before the end of March will go into a draw to win a girls day out at Shunyata and if you are not in Christchurch, will be a session when I travel next summer or a pack of oils for doing the Aromatouch massage
with guidance on how to do it.  Wooppee spread the word.

Also if you share with your friends - February you can win Paru's ebook on recipes that
she uses at Shunyata.

Here is the link and hope you can join us for some juicy wisdom on TRUE WELLNESS covering so many topics from experimentation and wisdom of having been there and looking at all

Merry Xmas to my Beloved Clients - May your 2021 be incredible - 17th Dec 2020

Merry Xmas to my Beloved Clients - May your 2021 be incredible What a Year for so many of us and after 2019 being one of the worst -

For me 2020 has been the best year ever - cause I decided a long time ago that all
I want for xmas is to wake up to my true and highest self and this year has been that year.  The clarity of what is true and what is not has never been so clear.  The compassion and the humility
when I take responsibility for all that happens to me has been astounding.  The understanding
and knowing (not from the head but from the being) of the enneagram is deeper than ever
and finally the beat up I have been doing to myself when I catch myself in a pattern, is stopping.
The magic that happens from the divine when you break an unconcious pattern has been 

Freedom is seeing the truth, clarity from the heart and compassion for all of suffering,
without having to be responsible for it

Who are you if the roles of which you have played are taken away?
Who are you if someone betrays you and you don't follow your usual response?
Who are you if you trust that everything is perfect just as it is?
Who are you if your belief systems are different from everyone else and you don't care?
Who are you if your image of who you think you were gets taken away?

So what a year and thank you covid for supporting my waking up.  I feel not everyone has
seen 2020 this year and for this my heart is here for you.  But change your perception and
trust - we are about to head into a clearing in the next few days.  All will be revealed and 
good stuff and energy will be entering the planet if you have done the work.  May you be in the true deeper love and heart opening, may you feel compassion for those who have hurt you and come to a deep place of forgiveness.  May you have a great connection with a higher power and
practice daily gratefulness and prayer.

I have my family with me all together for the first time in 40 years and feel honoured and
blessed.  I have enough money to eat great food, I live in an untouched paradise that hasn't developed in 17 years and I treasure the land deeply.  I might not be able to travel for a while
but falling more deeply in love with our land.  My body and being is open and in love with life
after an amazing maori healing course I ran here last weekend and I might be doing a roadie this summer from february with my new van.

That means - like when I first arrived in NZ 20 years ago.  I will have my massage table and
my wisdom and be doing Journey's on the road.  Please watch this space as I would love to
enter your abode and share a day of awakening with the journey and enneagram, great food and body work with oils.

In the meantime have a space from 28 December for a detox.  What a way to enter 2021.
with journalling and brainstorming with clarity. December has been a month where people have come back for more deepening and I feel they have deeply benefited.  Also space for day spas from 28 december and the new year and ultimate healing retreats and detox and weight loss.

Ultimate Healing Day with Journey, enneagram, sauna, lunch and body work. $300
Girls day out 2 sessions sauna and lunch    $200

But whatever you chose the new deeper, more love Shunyata will welcome you with open arms.
compassion and deep wisdom.  Call Paru to book your space - we are so excited to 
welcome you and camp bay beach is simply divinity itself or a quick dive down to purau if
the tide is in.

Also anyone wanting some essential oils to make your life eaier - there is a free frankincense
worth $100 the king of all oils available - txt me  0272 777734.  Have new recipes using the oils for chocolates that I am willing to share.

I hope you all have a blessed and gorgeous time with your loved ones.  Remember if you have healed with family - you have truly healed.  Love you all and NAMASTE - your higher self
is the only way to live cause you have abundance and causeless joy and true freedom.

True Wellness - Wellness Retreats - 1st Dec 2020

True Wellness - Wellness Retreats

You have heard of the person who has eaten well and jogged all his life and drops dead

Spa Retreat NZ

Wellness is far from a fad. It’s here to stay —now more than ever. Holistically,wellness starts from the point of view that all small parts make a healthy ‘whole’.Coming to a retreat to do a little yoga and meditation and some activities will not address true wellness – we have to look at the overall health and wellness of the individual  physically, mentally and from a soul prospective.and what is No same glove fits all – so one on one healing is paramount.  What unconcious behaviours are running that person,  the enneagram where did it first start,  childhood trauma what is stopping them really living a FULL LIFE.

Mindfulness Meditation
At Shunyata wellness retreat  we address all of them, after 17 years of operation – Paru has travelled the world and searched high and low to offer the best. She has also been there herself with them so she comes from that knowing inside what truly works. Starting with Ayurveda, one of the most ancient traditions focusing on body mind and spirit.Emotional wellbeing – what is behind epigentics
 the study of how your behaviors and environment can cause changes that affect the way your genes work,that even the medical field are recognising and how important it is to meet unmet emotions being mainly sadness, grief and anger and to clear childhood trauma, as per Gabor Mate.

The following Components are crucial in wholeness and wellness.

1. Physical body – you need to have movement, yoga, stretches and right fuel for your body and immune, low sugar, less carbs and moderate protein and lots of greens for alkalinity.

2. Energy Body – needing meditation to awaken your chakras, your kundalini and your prana energy and lifeforce. We use craniosacral balancing to clear blocks that are inhibiting your lifeforce.

3. Emotional Body – how to deal with your feelings, your perception and connection to feeling love and connected and whole. Emotional intelligence is our specialty with the enneagram and the journey method.

4. Wisdom – Shed the ignorance of the mind, negative beliefs & thoughts and bring in right teachings to nourish the soul and body. Bring unconcious behaviours into consciousness with the enneagram test

5. Karma – storage of past karmic actions, we need to learn from our past mistakes.Clear out childhood trauma and past lives. The hero’s Journey.

6. Bliss Body – When we awaken our consciouness we activate bliss states which will heal disease. You meet your true self, your essence with the journey method.

 Paru trusts the bigger picture of 2020 -Greed, fear, manipulation and control are being exposed right now and brought to a head what is not right and the planet is being prepared for a new beginning.Doing this work on your soul, your wellness and wholeness is crucial at this time if you want to join a growing number of conscious people into a new way of BEING.  She invites you
home to your true self where bliss and freedom is the ULTIMATE HAPINESS

Maori Healing Body Course here at Shunyata - 11-13 December - 8th Nov 2020

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

Maori Healer Coming to Shunyata – 11-13 December - still a few places left

Aroha - the 5 star retreat in queenstown just got to talk to her - we get to experience
her amazing healing here in gorgeous diamond harbour - pick up from lytellton ferry

fri 5-8 sat 9-4 sun 9-1 - so you still get your weekend

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

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

Retreats 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.

Spiritual Retreats NZ


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

1. We do an amazing ayurveda cleanse, 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 & immunity, a chi machine and a vibration machine for lymph

3. We can help you repair your immunity 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.

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.

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.

Present Synonym

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  cultivate self awareness and 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.
