Natural and Alternative Ways of Healing in New Zealand

Natural Ways of Healing NZ

Illness is often related to toxic thoughts and feelings.!
What is a spiritual path. It is the pursuit of truth, the breaking of illusions of the lower self. It is
truly listening to source, divine, the body and the soul beyond the mind which is full of fear doubt and judgement.

Why would you come to Shunyata Health & Healing Retreat? Maybe you trust there is something bigger than yourself to help with your healing. You might have given up on yourself and life, had an illness that has been disagnosed as terminal – what do you do. Some of us through unworthiness would give up, put our affairs in order and go to die. Others of us know that this illness is there to teach the soul – to be a wake up call and everything that comes to us is a gift from god.

You might not like this word god, cause your background was maybe catholic and you felt that
god was judgemental and it was never there for you or you may have carried a lot of guilt and
shame. No this is not the god I am talking about – it is one who only wants the best for you.

Caroline Myss says “Pride is one of the number 1 reasons for illness”. Wow this really rang home
after seeing many of the very proud ego types come with their recent illnesses. One had emphysema and just kept going till she could hardly breathe going down the stairs. Another couldn't feel pain and just continued doing, working and following the motions.

The enneagram that I work with – is an automatic pilot that runs us. This is our lower self and
usually causes us the most suffering. Mine was the martyr, victim and drama queen like my mother and watching her have a stroke at 50 from being a superwoman made we stop and think that this suffering for 20 years was not what I was going to go through. I decided to put health as a priority and started getting ready for menopause. Menopause is a time where whatever you haven't dealt with in your emotions, ego patterns and body will come up and hit you deeply. But if you can do the work and change your diet and up your exercise you can sail through it – as I just did.

We all need a spiritual coach – a person who is going to speak truth and not support your lower self. It has to be done with non judgement and love – gentleness and sometimes tough love depending on your ego patterns. Whem I had my wake up call by losing custody of my child – I was truly stuck, I was in deep suffering and no-one could help me – I had to work it out for myself. I was sabotaging my own higher self and waiting for someone to catch me. No one was tough love enough and I just kept doing it. I was also so shutdown from the pain in my heart – I desperately needed help but was pushing it away cause no-one stood up to me. What a journey and what a learning that time of my life has given me. I suffered for 10 years in Byron Bay, a paradise.

Alternative methods of healing in NZ

I opened Shunyata for this reason and after 10 years it just gets deeper. After the recent client
who had given up on himself with a brain tumour and was about to tell the kids and leave the family, I saw so many traits of my history and with deep prayer, his willingness and trust to
open and change – the love and the hope has come back, his relationship has healed and he is
on a path to healing. I now remember again why I opened and feel so truly humbled and grateful.
No-one can do this healing for you, you have to partake in your own healing journey, but you are
guided, held gently to clear what is stopping you living in your higer self and opening to this

The doTerra oils can assist greatly, frankincense in this instance was an ancient oil that works
with tumours and cancers and the emotional reading establishes what is in the subconscious.
We work on the patterns that have been running you and even recently at the oneness university
I learnt that from the time of conception to birth is also important. The body needs to be relaxed
so we can listen to the truth and the messages. Meditating and giving the mind a rest, cleansing
with the ozone sauna, gorgeous cranio-sacral balancing and many other modalities to get to the core. Neuro Linguistic Programming can work with anxiety attacks and of course the Journey takes you back to where it all started, this shut down.

We all get wake up calls in different forms. Could be a relationship break up – to teach us to leave romantic love and go deeper. An illness to see what the soul wants to reveal for you to learn.
A knock of some sort calling you home to your true self. When you grow you feel empowered and
enthusiastic. When you open after a shutdown and bitterness surrounding the heart by coming to a forgiveness process you have hope again.

You are free to chose what path of healing you want to take. Maybe you want to go down the traditional route – you will be supported in that. But if you want to look at some other healthy natural ways of dealing with illness – then Shunyata has it covered. It's different for everyone.
Alkaline your diet, find alternative recipes to eliminate refind sugars, an eating programme that will most benefit you. But most important to learn to treat this body as a temple so it can heal.
When you empower yourself to take charge of your healing journey you feel so much better and
that in itself can aid healing. It's not just about the physical – the emotional component is so important.

Shunyata is here to help you go inside and find out why this wake up call came and what you
can learn from it. It will help you discover your higher self and reconnect with the love inside.
We use ayurveda detoxing, emotional healing with The Journey and the enneagram. Doterra pure essential oils and zyto emotional readings, an ozone sauna to oxygenate the cells, advice on diet that would suit your constitution and illness and yoga and meditation to go inside.

Why would you trust and open your heart and soul to Paru. I feel that my journey has been from
experience. I would call myself a spiritual coach. I know the pain of suffering both emotionally and recently physically when I asked for an illness to help me have compassion for people with physical illness because I had never been through this. I have dedicated my life to waking up and spend every spare cent on my journey, to enable me to let go and be there for you.

“Yesterday I was clever, so I wanted to change the world. Today I am wise, so I am changing myself.” ― Rumi

I recently have attended the oneness university for awakening and in this journey have developed an even faster and deeper connection with my higher power. What happens here at Shunyata is we are helped – this divine energy steps in – it is like a miracle and with this people can truly heal. My deepest prayer is that people connect to their higher selves, the pain and suffering that people are going through changes and we are all living a pure, joyful, passionate life on purpose and with awareness. No matter what you are going through at this time – there is hope, there is light and if you are willing to take part in this journey – you will never look back. May all beings be free and happy. I feel so grateful to be able to show you your god like self and look forward to meeting you – I can be contacted @ or text 0272 777734 and back in September 2015 for the spring.
love and light always

Summer 2015 Newsletter - 10th Feb 2015

Summer 2015 Newsletter

 Summer in Diamond Harbour is sublime

Wow what a summer.  We have been swimming in camp bay, listening to music at Godley
House on a Sunday, jumping into the ocean down at the wharf, catching the dolphins on the way back from a latin jamming session at Freemans on a Sunday evening as well as doing deep therapy for couples and singles. It has never been a better time to come and get your mojo back on track. Want to get your relationship into the next stage of a deep love?

On a recent trip to Nelson I have been very impressed with the depth of the clearing and amazing accuracy of the subconscious in DOTERRA OILS - so Shunyata has taken them on board to use here.  Yes, we have all the oils and received a massage with them the other day and wow - what a massage. I have used lavender for years on my pillow to sleep but this one knocks you out for the whole night. For everyone who knows my candida story after doing a reading - I needed wild orange which was about abundance and child like playfulness. Well, the symptoms disappeared and I played and came back booked out in February. Another colleague from the journey  had already approached about these oils and some other friends in Byron Bay and now I
know how deep they work on the subconscious. So, am studying aroma touch in Australia at the end of the month and will be doing readings here along with using them on each individual client.
Unfortunately, this means that in April prices will have to increase for only the 3rd time in 10 years. Anyone thinking of coming to Shunyata to play with us in March will avoid this increase.
Bookings available from 11 March.  Call Paru now 03 3294773 or email

The most amazing and inspiring conference on addiction has been my deep love  of late and 
after reading the much publicised and talked about book Chasing the Scream which highlights the true reason why some people become addicted and other don't - I now know with the work that is happening here is on target for an addict who has been clean and wants to evolve.  Ayurveda and yoga features highly in the world to help people come back to their centre, along with clearing trauma from childhood and helping people connect where they often feel alone.  This book highlights the disconnection people feel and often the cause of addiction being the trauma in childhood.  When you are on purpose and serving the higher humanity your life feels worthwhile.

Where is everyone at for 2015?  Resolutions don't usually work, but being on purpose does.
Have you looked at your health, wellbeing and relationships lately? For health the sugar addiction is the new talk out there and Shunyata is forever collecting new recipes where you can cook,bake and eat sugar free.  In the addiction conference the main addictions mentioned these days are
of course alcohol and drugs, food,  people (sex addiction and co-dependency), money and gambling and the new one being technology. Nearly all of us can be guilty of one of these.

Raw Peppermint Slice
Put walnuts, almonds and cashews or brazil nuts for selenium dates, raisons and cranberries with little coconut oil in food processor and press down into dish and put in freezer
Add layer of peppermint with coconut oil being 6 drops of peppermint 1/2 cup coc oil, 2 tablespoons on agarve and maple syrup 1 teaspoon of vanilla essence and beat thorougly
(put back in freezer to set)
Then do same layer without peppermint but add in raw cacao powder for choc topping
dress with nuts on top and put back in the freezer. This is good for at least a month.

Many clients are now joining the oneness chambers on their retreat and getting so much from this connection and learning to ask for help from a higher power. I try and offer this for most retreats if it fits in with the timing. Day spas are relaxing and fun and you can get together a group of girls and come and frolic amongst beautiful views, peaceful birdsong, amazing massages with best essential oils on the planet and of course ozone saunas and delicious healthy but decadent food.

I am heading off to the Sexuality & Consciousness Conference in Byron at the end of the month for new inspiration and tips. So in March I will be on fire. I hope to see you here soon or anyone you know that could do with a makeover for 2015, spread the word and just get people to check out trip advisor if they are scared.  It's time to move out of mediocrity and live our true purpose in life.  

Love to all and happy summer

It's time to Let Go of Romantic Illusion

I awoke this morning with the ache  of the betrayal of love. I am an empath so I feel these things in my being. How can I reach you my sister and hold you in my bosum, to comfort you in your sale of your soul for the sweet promise of crumbs thrown to you by the man who wants a goddess? How can I pierce the veil of pride that you hold around your heart and soul?
How can I hit your being with the truth of the veil of illusion of love that you have been fed generation after generation?   

This temple of our woman is longing to come back home to the love that shines from our hearts and our being. How man wants her to step up. Her man hates himself when her treats her like mud but he is only reflecting how she is treating herself. He has no idea of what love truly is, she's meant to show him this path. But she keeps hiding behind the lies of this veil covering her beauty, her radiance & her shining light.

"Please claim me deep masculine consciousness, I want nothing less."
Our soul calls in the night and yet we keep repelling this depth from our own illusions.She crys in her sleep, only to wake up covering another betrayal the next day.

When will it stop? When us older sisters, the crones of this world that can face the  mirror every day with wrinkles and still stand proud of non-betrayal of our souls and shout yes to life. The crones who have tasted the depth of the well of suffering. The ones who don't believe in the lies of love. Who know beyond the wrinkles and the veils of romantic love what true love beacons to the being and the soul.

STOP – We have to hold our sister's hand and lead her to the place of the temple of the goddess
and show her the way of true love. Then they can lead their warriors to victory. They can
help these men who feel lost to come home to the truth of their purpose in life. To let go of
the reins of the lies that they had to endure from their goddess.

Please sweet divine Laxmi help me, release me into a pool of abundance of truth of love so
I can hold my sister's hands and lead them home to their soul and hearts. Help me to help them
open from all the hurts and betrayals they have endured and encrusted in their own hearts.
To know what true love is, what it feels like to rise instead of falling in love. May every woman
drip with the succulence of the goddess and shine her light so that our gods can set forth on
purpose in presence and consciousness to serve this planet.

Oprah interviewed Ali Mcgrath yesterday who is now 75 and she revealed how she had
prostituted herself to Hollywood and all the lies that that represents and finally she can sit
with her grey hair and feel that wholeness inside and live a more authentic life. Her definition of spirituality was being authentic - comes from learning from her ego patterns of the 9 in the enneagram to be real.  Mine is as a 4 in the enneagram - to know true love beyond tragic romantic. Why wait till 75 to feel this, wake up to truth, surrender to a divine that is present for all of us that loves us and bring the fire back into your belly for life and love.

Step up, feel the rage of your own betrayal. Go forth and scream, dance, sob for the lies that
have run your life and held you back being your true self. Roll in the crumbs of love  you have settled for and shine forth on a new path of power in your solar plexus, knowing in your gut, openness & sweetness in your heart.

Go forth sisters and share the truth of who you truly are what your gift is to share with the world.




Please send to anyone you know is depressed

Depression, Wall around the Heart, Shutdown, Disconnected

Do these words sound familiar?The statistics say one in 6 people will suffer depression at some time in their life.93% of people have a wall around their heart and why would we want to keep it there when our heart is the core of our being, the centre of our soul and the seat of all our creativity.Do you truly want to be free of this heaviness – there is a way out and it will take a bit of courage from your part and the rest is taken care of.

What is Depression

Have you ever asked why is this wall here and what is it truly?It has appeared when somehow our soul has been assaulted in some way and what it is is layers and layers of trapped emotions. Releasing this heart wall is the best gift you can give yourself in this lifetime. The physical effects of having a heart wall are often pain the neck, discomfort and tightness in the shoulders and chest pain. Emotionally it has kept you in depression, isolation and numbness and not being able to find love. If you release this heart wall, your creativity will be unlocked your abundance will flow and you will have back your lifeforce as it takes so much energy to keep it in place. Many people explain it like –“ I've got my mojo back.”
When you open to your true self, your soul & your essence, food tastes better, life and nature smile back at you and you feel uncontrollable gratefulness and joy. You cannot put a price on this openess – it is sublime.#thejourneymethod

Traditionally, the causes of depression are reckoned to be difficult life circumstances. But, harsh though our life traumas may be, they are simply catalysts, triggers of depression, and not the real cause. The root causes lie deeper. It’s time to feel whatever comes up, no matter what. It’s time to respond to life in an emotionally truthful way and stop shutting down your body.

An amazing technique that truly relieves depression is Laughing Meditation which is
practiced at Shunyata

Your task is not to seek for love, but merely to seek and find all the barriers within yourself that you have built against it.”
― Rumi

Paru, the owner of Shunyata Retreat and Day Spa knows all too well of her own heart wall.
Her wall went up when she lost custody of her child and lost all her life savings 20 years ago but was fortunate enough to live in Byron Bay – the mecca of self development and spirituality and had 2 amazing teachers who changed her life and helped her open again to her true self. One being Brandon Bays with The Journey and the other David Deida with openness. “ We often need a dark night of the soul to truly wake up.” But if she knew what she knows now after working with people's heart walls for 10 years, she wouldn't need to have shut off and isolated herself in deep suffering.

Having just attended a consciousness and sexuality conference – the theme was based on the relationship with self. She noticed a little closure once again and on completing the conference noticed how amazing it felt to go out and open the people in the restaurant. Even when we get into a spiritual journey and path – the more awareness we have we can easily slip back into that shutdown and separation. But opening after a long time shut down, needs trust and safety,buckets of self love and self care and gentleness. It took me 2 years to finally do David Deida's workshop as I was scared of shutting down. He often quotes that when the pain becomes too intense to remain closed then we open. Being disconnected, shut down is incredibly painful and being open is so so sublime. Paru believes a lot of heart attacks can be caused from shut down closed hearts.

“When you do things from your soul, you feel a river moving in you, a joy.”
― Rumi

When we live with an open heart the world opens up with us. When we live with an open heart we are magnetic attracting people into our lives who are love the beauty of openess, who love the sparkle in our eyes. Openness is sexy. People are drawn to this. Hearts are where true happiness is. Physical, spiritual heart is our true self. Our essence is joy, love for others and the nice feelings that come from an open hear

The Journey is really for anyone who wants to get to the root cause of depression.
To address these deep seated patterns that see some sort of emotional pattern driving the behavior to the surface “requires a lot of courage,”

In a real world we would love to function as healthy adults with firm boundaries and self love
but unfortunately our parents sometimes weren't healthy and that was passed onto to us
and it forms the egoic self or the wounded child. If our parents were alcoholics then our
boundaries are less firm and co-dependence often plays out in relationships and we keep
unconsciously projecting our wounds on our partners. We go into Age Regression each
time our partner hits this wound and react like a child.


People will often push your boundaries in life and this doesn't feel good. It is up to you
to take your power back and not allow them to treat you like this. But people often don't
know how, as the wounded child ,to take their power back.

If somebody treats you with unkindness, it's likely they have endured similar treatment in the past from others, and are only repeating unconscious patterns in search of a love they cannot find. They will continue to repeat until they wake up from their nightmare of projection, and truly see who you are, who they are, who we all are. This is when judgement comes in, but if you realise that it is not their true selves playing out but their egos, then how can you judge.

The Enneagram and Ego Patterns

Our true self is under all these layers of conditioning and this conditioning (egoic self) gets exhausting when we can't keep playing it out. It was formed in the first 6 years of life and depending on your childhood, it can be very strong as it is a form of survival in this sometimes cruel world. This can come at any time on our soul or spiritual path,but the heart is screaming to open and the soul is wanting to come home and this is when people usually come to Shunyata.

Maybe they come as they have contracted cancer and decided to know why they have it, maybe they have had a painful relationship breakup or a death that has brought a grief that can't move. Maybe the shutdown of the heart has become unbearable . Maybe they don't know what is going on but something doesn't feel right anymore.

Having observed and worked with people now for 10 years and deeply increased my awareness a of patterning – I am in awe of how quickly people can get to the core of what their soul is trying to tell them. I haven't changed the Ultimate Bliss Package once in 10 years cause it works.

Some of us need clarity of where to go next or what our life calling, purpose or gift is.

Would you love to clear these blocks?
Would you love to know your true self and not the automatic ego patterning that has been running you?
Would you like to know what goes wrong in relationships and how to change these patterns?
Would you like to open your heart and come back to your vitality & aliveness?
