Happy New Year to all of you who came to Shunyata or think of coming.  May 2014 bring you amazing freedom and love and openess.

It's been 10 years since the doors opened and when I look back on the amazing transformation of both myself and all of my courageous clients I feel truly blessed.  When we taste who we truly are then we can have a purpose for being here.  Then to dedicate our lives to that freedom is the most sublime of all loves.  

In the last few months I have been amazed how quickly people shift from not being able to move beyond pain to truly coming home to themselves and let go of stories of shutdown, anxiety and physical blocks.  See Trip advisor notes.

As I told you I will be coming north - arrive Wellington at end of January and  in Auckland 10-14 Feb, so hope you can have a new beginning to 2014.

Do you want magic in life for yourself?
Do you want to wake up full of joy for no reason?
Do you want to do the work you love?
Do you want to love in a healthy divine goddess way?
Do you want to offer something to this world rather than existing?

What is truly stopping you living your true potential

What better way to enjoy your Christmas Break - indulging yourself with healing & Health - 19th Nov 2013

What better way to enjoy your Christmas Break - indulging yourself with healing & Health


We all have a story of our lives and how it  has impacted on us.

In this universe, which was created by a divine, organizing intelligence, there are simply no accidents.
With everything that has happened to you, you can either feel sorry for yourself, or treat what has happened as a gift. Everything is either an opportunity to grow or an obstacle to keep you from growing. You get to choose.
Wayne Dyor
"My research has shown me that when emotions are expressed – which is to say that the biochemicals that are the substrate of emotion are flowing freely – all systems are united and made whole. When emotions are repressed, denied, not allowed to be whatever they may be, our network pathways get blocked, stopping the flow of the vital feel-good, unifying chemicals that run both our biology and our behavior."
- Dr. Candace B. Pert

  • Have we done anything about it?
  • Is life teaching you what you need to learn to wake up?  
  • Are you taking care of your body like a temple?
  • Is life exciting, free, new and full of mystery every day?
  • Are you living in magic, innocence and wonder like a child?
If you answered no to these questions - it's time for you to come and find our  your life purpose with 
the journey or an amazing craniosacral session that takes you to a deep deep place inside, peaceful, serene, connected and alive again.

Is your relationship like Shiva and Shakti dancing - full of humour and love - if not come and do a couples retreat and save $100.  Be dined with amazing healthy & naughty food on the deck overlooking
the bay, have a bliss bomb bath, decadent she chocolates and rekindle the love.

You can come for a detox 7 or 5 days, a Journey retreat for 3 days or an ultimate  healing day

If it's not for you this time spoil your loved ones with a Christmas voucher they will love you for.

Dont Delay - the roses are blooming, the ocean is warming, the birdsong & peace & serenity is
deeper than ever

Maybe you might be able to join us next winter for the trip of a lifetime

or have a gorgeous xmas and new year with your loved ones.

Below 24: Come to Shunyata to honour yourself and live life more freely - lets get your emotional health sorted Call Paru now 03 3294773

Ok how did you score?  What areas of your life would you like to improve?


 At Shunyata we believe that there are many places we live from, that are not serving us in life.  One is our mind, full of fear doubt and judgement.  Another is our conditioning or belief systems - this too can be addressed.  The one that Paru found the most draining and was causing the most suffering in her life and the life of her mother was - ego patterns.  Her life as a drama queen and tragic romantic didn't serve the people around her and after losing custody of her child - she knew for her sake that she had to address this ego.  I remember the day when I said  "until the day I die I will clear these patterns to come to freedom for myself and my mother" who had a stroke at 50".  

When someone says - get rid of your ego - how do you know what ego is for you.  For some it might be speaking up your truth, for another pride and not asking for help - for another -extreme fear and anxiety.
Wouldn't it be great to see what your patterns are that are causing you the most suffering.    Paru has been working for 9 years at Shunyata helping people to clear their blocks to living their true potential.

I love helping people find their god like selves - don't delay call now 03 3294773

What is a true Empath - 18th Oct 2013

What is a true Empath


Do you take on other people's energy - are you sensitive to smells etc -

Here is the test to check if you are a true Empath

1. have you been labled as oversensitive
2. do you replenish by going home alone
3. are you hypersensitive to smells and excessive noise and talking
4. do you take yr own car places so you don’t get trapped
5. do you replenish yourself by having own space
6. do you take on other peoples pain and stress in own body
7. do you go to fridge when around negative energy

“There is no coming to consciousness without pain. People will do anything, no matter how absurd, in order to avoid facing their own Soul. One does not become enlightened by imagining figures of light, but by making the darkness conscious.”

- C.G. Jung

We avoid the dark and just keep wanting the light and in this avoidance we are causing suffering for ourselves.  Are you ready to come and face the dark night of the soul and be free like a bird to fly again.
What we resist persists - do you need to have someone hold you hand to come home to your true self?

You can be free from these patterns and truly know how to deal with people and energies out there.


Paru believes that the enneagram numbers 2, 4 and 9 can be the empaths of the world.
There is strong boundaries needed to cope with the energy zappers, the drama queens and the narcissists of the world that the empaths seem to attract.

Come now to Shunyata and learn to take your power back and stop attracting these people into your life and know how to live in the world as a sensitive soul.

What to do with a Wake Up Call - 2nd Sep 2013

 View from Shunyata when the sun goes down  We can't solve problems by using the same kind of thinking we used when we created them."

The Ultimate Life Purpose is not to follow you own self will but to be of service to others.

You are not a victim, but a co-creator of your life with The Uni-verse.

Add value to other people’s lives and value will be added to your own. Being of service and taking the wounds of your life and turning them into lessons and sharing your experience with others will do more good to you and the planet than almost anything else.


What in your life have you made more important than your own approval? What in life have you made more important than living your purpose? What in your life have you made more important than being happy? Where have you settled and why?

What OUTER THING do you think is more important than trusting yourself? A person? A parent? A material possession?

Can you stop chasing on the outside and be the love and joy you are on the inside.


Life gives us not what we want but what we need and if we truly want to wake up in this lifetime some
of the lessons are tough.

Wake up calls come in different forms - some are illnesses such as cancer, some are relationship
breakdowns, some are deep betrayals by people, some can come in the financial realm such as
bankruptcy or retrenchment.

These times can be very special in our life if we learn what we need to learn and Shunyata opened
9 years ago to help people see what their true calling is when these disasters happen in our life.
Paru's came in the form of losing custody of her child and she fought and fought and suffered for
nearly 10 years until she really got what it was all about.   She then has dedicated her journey to 
helping people through these difficult times and to see what the soul  is trying to tell them.  
A wake up call is just your soul calling you home - taking you into what is truly more important and
what you are meant to be doing.


Whatever symptoms are showing up in your body is just your souls way of telling you to look
at your life and what isn't working, what ego patterns keep you stuck and what you need to wake up.
This video is amazing to listen to about the true epidemic that is here and why we need to 
come truly to retreat to find our higher selves.  Enjoy and Namaste

Spirituality - How to be Happy - 21st Jun 2013

Spirituality - How to be Happy

What is Happiness

I am so excited here looking at the snow and feeling the bubbling of my heart.  I realised these last
few weeks that I can't express what it is I want to share with you but today it is bubbling out of me.

I have been so blessed to have the time to listen to the Hay House Summit (publishing company
that releases books along health and spirituality) represents people like Wayne Dyer and many other
famous authors.  What I have realised that they have put into words what I want to share.  So here goes -


The world is crumbling around us, nothing on the outside is permanent and trustworthy.  People are losing their jobs, relationships are crumbling, the planet is giving us a shake up.  People are moving
at such a fast pace and it is saturated with knowledge and starved for wisdom.

Maybe your wake up call has come in the form of an illness, a loss or maybe it hasn't but if it does
celebrate it - cause nearly every talker on the summit had their story of rock bottom to tell.  Mine was
losing custody of my child and I had to be kicked into waking up - because was I a fighter.
We all have a choice to either keep in our patterns of mind, beliefs and ego or evolve to living from
our souls.  If you don't want this then maybe this article is not for you.  You have to want this more
than anything.

Life brings us the perfect things to help us evolve!How we handle these good and bad things are what either keeps us stuck or helps us to grow. When we talk about growing or spiritual work - what we are really saying is this means stripping back the thoughts, beliefs and ego to come to our innocence.  We all came in as a crystal diamond, untarnished, perfect and then owing to lifes challenges and betrayals and pains we have shut down to this crystal diamond.  It's not about becomming a better person, it's not about doing any work - it's about becomming aware of what is true and what is not.

Banish Depression for Good

How do we do that? 
1.First of all we don't follow our thoughts, the mind is full of fear, doubt and judgement.  We are not our thoughts, beliefs or emotions.
2. We find out who we truly are.  Have you ever really asked - who am I really?Not our roles as a mother, banker etc, that is not truly us.  Know what is our true gift to the world - our purpose.
3. We uncover deep seated beliefs - these are things passed on to us from our parents or conditioning
and pierce the lie of them.

4. Then we let go of our egoic self - these are the patterns that run us and cause us the most suffering and as suffering was deep within me, I continued with the enneagram,  the work I have been doing
for the last 15 years to come to the freedom I feel today.
5. We pray and ask for help.  We need to be aware that there is a higher power out there, the divine,
god whatever you want to call it that only wants the best for your higher self.   This is sometimes clouded
by life experiences with religion and people in general.  Do what needs to be done and surrender the rest to the universe.
6. We fall in love  or reconnect with our inner child - discover her innocence and make a comittment to love her and be with her or him and have some fun.
7. Feel feelings totally when they come up - no blocking, sensoring just the raw pure emotion.
8. Take some quiet time each day for your soul - meditation or contemplation.
9.  Let go of the addiction to impernanence - everything on the outside that is not true.
10.  Face your fear of death
11.Develop divine attitudes of empathy, compassion,equanimity, love and joy
12. Know that you have a choice in every moment - chose fear or love
13.  Whatever you want in this world - go give it and it will come back to you. 
14.  Find a mentor and then become an inspiration.

Spirituality Retreat NZ

I feel so blessed to have been exposed to THE JOURNEY which I have found to be the most specialwork to take us to this place the soul.    Combine this with The Enneagram  which identifies which area of the above 14 points  above need more work for you ,and you are on the road home to your essence, your true self, your higher self.  There is not many processes out there that do this in the world of healing, so  at Shunyata, we can at least get a taste of what's possible.  Then the prayer is to try and live from this place as much as possible.

Weight loss from the Soul - 18th Jun 2013


Many people are eating unconciously and using food for Love are you one of them?
Kilos of weight gain are walls of protection and hurts accumulated from childhood and life in general
Food is an addiction and one that we can't hide like other addictions - it shows painfully.
Overeating is an act of spiritual starvation
Our addictions are driven by deep and forgotten emotions

We get the new diet, we stick it out, we lose weight and then within months the weight comes back on.
Do you know this one? Diets don't go to the root cause, we need to go deeper to past conditioning,
beliefs and emotions and clear them out for life.

Weight loss beyond diet

Well if you found your way to this page you have made the first step home back to your true self and here at Shunyata you will find that inspiration and guidance in a place of love instead of fear.

Paru also came from this background where her drug of choice was food and after many years on
her path can truly, sincerely and with love and integrity help you home to banish weight gain for life.
This is not a quick fix weight loss, this is a lifetime change done in a safe envioronment where you truly
chose love over fear and come home to the higher part of you that has been disconnected.

  • You clear deep childhood wounds & reinhabit your body from dissociation
  • You refall in love with your body and inner child
  • You leave with a love of good wholesome nourishing eating
  • You will be inspired and held safely as you return to love

Come for 7 or 15 days and drop the kilos here while doing the emotional work

Depends on how many you have to lose - will it be 5kg or 35kg - all it takes is your participation
and desire and timing that you are truly sick of the old ways.  Everything else is magic
Call Paru now and discuss which programme will suit you  03 3294773

I don't feel guilty any more about spending money or time on myself, and I am less accepting of negative behavior by others.  I now find I have an Emotional resilience and more confidence and don't carry the childhood baggage that has been kilos for life.  I also got rid of relationships that
don't serve me   Thank you for helping me drop 30kg of stuck baggage

Cancer Retreat & Benefits of Detox & Emotional Healing - 25th May 2013

Cancer Retreat & Benefits of Detox & Emotional Healing


In a progressive cancer clinic in Atlanta they quoted the many causes of cancer are a combination
of heavy metals, viruses, cellular oxygen deprivation, metabolic acidosis and emotional/spiritual issues.  

If you come down with cancer - maybe it's a soul's wake up call for you to change things in your life.  Wouldn't you like to know why you got the cancer so it didn't come back?

Shunyata has been open for 10 years now specialising in emotional Healing with The Journey & Detox with Ayurveda.  Combine this with The enneagram - which is ego types and patterns that keep us stuck,  cranio-sacral where you access the wisdom of the body which speaks truth, ozone therapies and
alkalising and diet in general, Paru the owner feels that healing is imminent.

One ayurveda type should do raw food, another alkalising is more important and another warming
foods is more nourishing.  Some ego types need to learn to feel again after shutting down anger
and numbing out on emotions and another needs to stop letting emotions run them.  We are all
individuals and what works for one is not necessarily for the other.

One lady came with a throat tumour and she needed to speak her truth - so realising this - the tumour disappeared.  Recently the well known author Wayne Dyor had leukemia and had cranio sacral sessions twice a week and went on to encourage the author to write about how  the mystery of cranio-sacral works.


We all get a wake up call of some sort in life, whether it be physical and emotional and it's the soul
calling us back to ourselves.  If we can see beyond the mind and the fear doubt and judgement,
we can access our souls teaching.  Here at Shunyata Paru provides this amazing tranquil
environment for this journey inwards.  She doesn't proclaim to cure cancer, but she believes
that if the client and her work together - miracles happen.

Read Dying to be Me and see the miracle that is possible

She would love to help you to connect with your higher self and what you need to learn from this cancer in a beautiful peaceful loving environment with food that nourishes the soul.  Whether you do the
5 day or 7 day detox or the 3 day emotional healing retreat - you will leave here revitalised and on the road to healing.

I challenge you to find a better value for money retreat in Australasia.
