You are invited
to join Anna in the Cosmic Rock Field (also known as Castle Hill Rocks, Te Kohanga - Birth Place of the Gods and Kura Tawhiti) for a Cosmic Life Force Energy DYNAMIC RETREAT.
This small Group Retreat for 12 people is for those who are actively involved with the CLFE Training.
Castle Hill Rocks which I like to call the Cosmic Rock Field (understatement!) is where we will connect, explore, experience, meditate, learn, commune, flow with the Cosmos, breathe, open, sit, wait and be!
In the time of the Waitaha, Castle Hill was called Te Kohanga or "Birthplace of the Gods."
In 2002 the Dalai Lama called it a " spiritual centre of the Universe." And after our time there on Retreat in 2018, I KNOW this to be true!!!
It's also well known as a filming spot for "The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe".
The area is of special cultural, spiritual and historical significance to Ngai Tahu who named it Kura Tawhiti (treasure from afar). Hidden amongst the limestone outcrops of Castle Hill are traces of 500-year old charcoal drawings traditionally said to have been left by the Waitaha, the first people to travel through this area. In 1998 the Kura Tawhiti Conservation Area was designated as Topuni to ensure that the values Ngai Tahu place on this area are recognised, acknowledged and respected. The concept of Tōpuni derives from the traditional Ngāi Tahu tikanga (custom) of persons of rangatira (chiefly) status extending their mana and protection over a person or area by placing their cloak over them or it.
As all of you know, with Anna, we cannot pre set or know exactly how, what, where or when experiences transpire!! We simply become alive in NOW and go with the co-creative Cosmic flow.

Our Retreat in 2018 had a freak snow dump which created an incredible Winter Wonderland and no tourists
