Okuti Springs Health & Healing Retreat

Welcome to the


In September 2007, Yasmeen and Jonathan along with their friends and original investors, Bruce McIntyre and Norm Maxwell, purchased 42 hectares, (that's 100 acres in old terms,) of native bush cover hill land in the picturesque Okuti Valley, Banks Peninsula, on the east coast of the South Island here in New Zealand. This amazing land had been run as a permaculture property 18 years but had become very run down. Aside from its location, view and stunning scenery, it has the most incredible array of trees, bird life and its own natural springs.

Since purchase Jonathan and Yasmeen began working very hard to build a beautiful Health and Healing Retreat for personal and spiritual development. (The stillness, and silence of this place alone is a gift to the Soul.)

The Pascha Health and Healing Retreat is a sanctuary of healing and well-being offering beautiful accommodation and residential progammes. The Retreat is very private and has many walks and tracks leading into the bush and up onto the ridges with incredible lake and ocean views.

Raman Pascha regularly teaches from his retreat and we welcome private groups to book the property as a Self catered facility or as a fully catered experience held by our very competent Retreat Management team.

You are also welcome to have a night or two for yourself to relax in the wood fired hot tub and to enjoy the peace and the gardens. Please contact us to discuss your private retreat experience.

Also, thanks to Sav and Bat for the amazing food - it was delicious and made with such love!" - Vic, retreat participant.

"Thank you Baptiste and Savahna for the wonderful time we have spent here! It brought us just what we were looking for. We have been reading a lot, had time for meditating and a nice walk up the hill. We feel very lucky that we have found this place. A beautiful spot and surroundings." - Nico and Annalise, a private stay experience.
