Recuperative Retreats for Women

"A sanctuary offering relaxation, restoration and replenishment - just for you!"

Life A Plenty Charitable Trust ‘Recuperative Retreats for Women’ is a service provided specifically for women within the Tauranga and wider Bay of Plenty region (see boundaries here), who have been recommended a period of rest and recuperation by a health professional.

The retreat provides the opportunity for women to take a break from their day-to-day activities in order to replenish their mind, body and spirit, and at the same time receive support to make positive changes in their lives. The retreats provide a safe and secure environment for participants to experience complete rest in a quiet, reflective atmosphere.

Each retreat is FREE to participants and all meals are provided. Participants have their own bedroom, with all linen provided. All participants receive individual and collective support from two qualified facilitators/therapists throughout each retreat, which takes place over five days.

During the Retreat, participants are able to attend daily workshops in order to learn simple relaxation exercises, coping with anxiety, stress management techniques, establishing boundaries, understanding grief, self-compassion and problem-solving strategies to effectively manage life challenges.

The immeasurable value and benefit these retreats provide is the positive ripple effect on the women attending, their health and wellbeing, their tamariki/children, their relationships, their whanau/families and in turn, their entire community.
