Walking in Beauty 

Living by Grace


New Zealand


May 17  20 

Tauhara Centre  




This retreat is about supporting women into the path of

SELF-LOVE ... where it all begins.

There was a time when women were connected to their divinity, their beauty, their wisdom, and their grace. Many do not believe that these attributes lie in every single one of us.  We have forgotten how to nourish these qualities so that they may be strengthened.  Most of us have spent years basing our self -worth on whether we met the standards that media and culture have set for women; to be skinny and sexy in order to be truly a women. In this workshop WALKING in BEAUTY; LIVING by GRACE how liberating it is to think of your value being defined by your INNER LIGHT, your RADIANCE and GRACE

What this workshop is about

Each of us is unique,  As women we have been given a gift, the beauty of Divine Creation within us. Our beauty is not in our makeup or fashion, it lies in our DEPTH! During these 4 days of WALKING in BEAUTY-LIVING by GRACE let us go to this depth and beyond.  This is the time for you to nourish these qualities, remembering that connection and presence to the wisdom and intuition that is within of you.

During these 4 days you will be nourished through;


Daily yoga practices - to reconnect to your body.

Silence and stillness - to find your centre and your own inner voice.

Nourishing plant based food - to cleanse and re-energise you.

Powerful sharing, releasing and learning to celebrate being a woman.

Are you ready to step into the fullness

of who you really are?


"I have learnt and grown so much from this weekend it is really hard to quantify in a few words. The reconnection of the age old powerful sisterhood is an amazing thing, and has endless positive opportunities both looking inward and outward. The combination of positive energies, nourishing food, and the direction of you two Jody and Rachel has given me the courage and strength to travel a path that is not always easy, but that leads to the light. You two have a rare gift and a beautiful resonance working together and i thank you both for your dedication hard work and most of all the unconditional love that enveloped us all."- Ilse Taupo

“and i said to my body softly ‘I want to be your friend’; it took a long breath and replied ‘I have been waiting my whole life for this.”

Meet your hosts and guides

I am Rachel, a passionate Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapist, in which i hold a diploma. I live in Taupo New Zealand, where I’ve successfully practised for the last ten years. The subtle body, the energy systems, profound wisdom and healing capabilities of our bodies is my passion. I hold certificates in Shiatsu and Hakomi Psychotherapy. I regularly attend workshops and travel overseas for further education. My dedicated yoga practise of the last 15 years has kept me strong and subtle, enabling me to do the things I love with ease and grace. My life’s traumas led me onto this path of self-inquiry and self-love.  Deep, authentic connections with the people around me, laughing a lot and spending time in nature walking my dog all make me happy. It’s important to me to find space for connecting to my inner stillness. This journey has shown me how to be in the joy of every moment, to be present with whatever arises. It is a dream of mine to help people, especially women, find the courage to move forward on this inward journey. I hold a safe and gentle space, encouraging old patterns to release, helping you to connect with the wisdom and stillness of your own bodies. These tools have helped me settle into my feminine essence, giving me freedom to express myself from an authentic place. I live in gratitude and embrace life with enthusiasm, enjoying a more energized and fulfilling life. I look forward to meeting you.
