Way of Nature New Zealand – Spiritual Fellowship

Way of Nature: 7 day Nature Quest


Do you feel the call to drop into deep connection with all that is? Do you wish to:

– Reveal your True purpose for this lifetime.
– Open an authentic connection with Outer, Inner and True nature.
– Experience an authentic realisation of your True Nature, Source Awareness

This Way of Nature programme may be for you. Surrender and listen to inner and outer nature to learn how to take your place in the choir of life with a 4 day/night solo in a beautiful, safe natural environment, supported by personal preparation and group time either side of the solo.

The value of people being able to find ways to offer their unique gifts to world, and overcome the doubts and wounds that present as obstacles, cannot be measured. We would be in harmony with each other, with the planet, if this could be achieved. We truly honoured and grateful to offer this retreat process in service of this greater goal.


Way of Nature New Zealand is part of the global Way of Nature organisation.

The Way of Nature offers programs that connect people with outer nature, their own inner nature and their true nature, working with principles such as relaxation, presence, cultivating energy and opening the heart.  The Way of Nature principles and practices are core to the cultivation and maintenance of my own connection and I apply these daily in the way I work and my personal activities.

My own conscious journey started in 1996 when I met John P. Milton in Crestone, Colorado. I immediately knew I needed what he had to offer and soon I was on a Sacred Passage Retreat. This program is 11 days of which 7 days are spent alone in nature. This was my first encounter with the concept of “Presence” and a new awareness of how disconnected I was from my body.  

My Way of Nature Story



I returned to New Zealand in late 1996 and in parallel with developing my business career, I continued my personal development journey. I practised yoga and tai chi. I became a Reiki Master in 2006 and completed a Diploma in Facilitation in 2007. While living in Santa Monica2010 – 2014, I strengthened my mindfulness practises with the assistance of Insight LA and numerous readings and teachings from Jon Kabbat Zin, Dan Siegel and Jack Kornfield 

John P. Milton continues to be my primary spiritual teacher. I hosted him in New Zealand in 2000/2001, I’ve participated in several more retreats, including Advanced Awareness Training in 2013 and the Nature Guide Training in 2015, along with Duncan. Our son Mani has also participated in programs with John since 2012.

In September 2015 I undertook the 28 Day AllOne solo time in the Sangre de Christemountains of Southern Colorado. I refer to this experience as the Unfolding of the many Aspects of my Being. It was a true gift being able to do this and I am eternally grateful to my husband and son for their support in this. I am currently in year 2 of John’s 3 year Source Awareness program.

My husband, Duncan, has also done a Sacred Passage Retreat and the Guide Training programme.

We are now founding The Way of Nature New Zealand and offering Ways of Natural Renewal Programmes.
