Finally! The legendary New Zealand Contact Retreat returns!

Come and join us in the beautiful gateway to the Nelson Lakes National Park at St Arnaud Village to unite body, nature and the elements.

The energy of the elements, Metal, Water, Wood, Fire and Earth, becomes a focal point for exploration within a delicious mix of Qi gong, Yoga, Contact Improvisation, Nature and Meditation.

Long standing friends and creative collaborators Clare Luiten and Asho Gevorgyan have envisaged this retreat. As life researchers and explorers of dance and mind-body-spirit they are passionate about human connection and embodied expansion and as such are hosting Martin Keogh, international Contact Improvisation tutor to complete the magic teaching trilogy.

This retreat is for people of all backgrounds who wish to learn and deepen their connection to self, others, through movement and nature. Immerse in nature, find your breath, your being, and move through to spacious, embodied, stillness. This experience will deeply nourish you on all levels.

"When you share the interactive space of your listening breathing tissues, even for a moment with another, everything changes." - Clare Luiten 2017
