Nestled in a sea of development in the heart of Albany is a jewel. Once a part of a wider, greater forest, it is now the sole remaining large tract of mature bush land within the surrounding area, creating a special haven. Nature abounds with mature trees, native birds and gently flowing streams that add to the tranquillity and sense of being within nature. This brings us back to a sense of being at peace with ourselves and at peace with the world around us. The retreat centre offers a place to learn within an environment that fosters the inner journey and inspires the outer expression of the inward changes that retreat participants experience.

This was our 28th Camp held in New Zealand and most successful to date. Your chef and assistants did a marvelous job. The food was lovely … our invited guest teacher said it was one of the best retreats he had been to in his considerable years of tutoring and training around the world … we look forward to booking our next retreat with Kawai Purapura.
On behalf of the Auckland Sphere group and all those who attended the teachings, I would like to formally thank you for your generous support of Lama Marks’ visit. Both the Shanti Yoga studio and the Prema Meeting Room proved to be fantastic venues and the ground are beautiful … Lama Mark … mentioned how smooth and restful his stay had been and how he had enjoyed the excellent teaching spaces…with sincere gratitude and best wishes.
