Less than an hour drive from Auckland, nestled into the Great Forest of the Waitakere Ranges, leading to the spectacular black sand ocean beach of the west coast of Karekare's natural beauty, Sacred Earth is a place where the magnificence of the natural world can open us up to the hidden beauty of our inner being. The ideal setting for intimate gatherings that allow deeper connections within and to the environment that surrounds us.

Experience delicious and healthy Plant-Based Cuisine by Paheko Living Foods

Our passion is to show you how delicious and abundant a plant-based diet can be. Not only how it tastes, but also how it keeps us healthy and thriving.

Enjoy breakfast with a hot drink after restorative yoga class. Open buffet of superfood salads, savoury raw or dehydrated goodies, as well as warm foods, will be offered for lunch followed by a herbal tea and a delicious raw treat. Each meal is prepared with a focus on bio-diverse organic plant ingredients, full of nutrients and flavor, that are enriching to our bodies and the planet.

You will also learn simple techniques to incorporate plant-based, non-processed and nutrient-dense foods into your lifestyle and learn how to avoid the use of refined sugar, gluten and over processed foods such as white flour. Instead, you will learn to value pure, natural and whole ingredients which are organic, enzyme-rich, and wholesome.

Yoga and Relaxation in a beautiful Temple and Total Nature Immersion

Our day begins with welcome tea at the temple overlooking the Tasman sea followed by a gentle vinyasa flow. Classes are designed to help you find foundational strength, freedom of movement and a connection to your breath with focus on yoga therapy and meditation. Beginners to yoga will get an introduction to yoga postures, breathing practices and relaxation techniques, while the more experienced will be guided in how to deepen their practice. All levels, bodies and souls are welcomed.

Experience great outdoors renowned by its diversity and pure energy. It is a walk in the wilderness of Waitakere ranges to a hidden waterfall on the sacred land, where we take the moment to connect and listen to the nature. It has something for every adventurer in us.

Discover the magic of yoga nidra followed by a closing circle during one of the most beautiful sunset you will see.
