Our Vision

Our Vision
The centre has grown steadily over the past five years, becoming one of New Zealand’s most popular destinations for retreats, conferences and seminars in natural health, environmental awareness, spiritual development and social responsibility. The underlying philosophy that guides its development is one of harmonious living with the land, arising from an awareness of our oneness with all creation.

In New Zealand we are on the edge of an exciting future. Social consciousness is blossoming into an integration of health care, social concerns and spiritual awareness. Kawai Purapura reflects this integration, providing an environment that fosters a sense of peace and well-being.

Our vision is to create a healing space wherein people can find their own potential for being well. This vision will develop into focused healing programmes that not only serve those who lack privilege, but contribute to natural health taking a significant place in overall health care delivery.

At Kawai Purapura we have a residential community that offers the opportunity to live and work in harmony with each other and the environment. The residents contribute greatly to the overall vision for the land. Living with the land allows us to manifest qualities that reflect the ideals of natural health and healing, spirituality and service, within a framework of sustainable lifestyle along with social responsibility.

I would like to invite you all to come and be part an integrative vision through the Kawai Purapura experience.
