  • Description


    Hi I am Jonathan and my wife Yasmeen and I own a stunning Health and Healing Retreat on the Banks Peninsula of New Zealand with some other friends. We also have a small farm about 10 mins form the Retreat, with a bunch of loved rescued animals and a Well-Being and counseling centre in Christchurch. Along side our award winning cafe and our newly opened Restaurant.

    We live a pretty special life supporting others in their personal and spiritual growth and a looking for the right people to help us complete and help maintain our Retreat Space. A place for healing and growth, connection and recovery. If this sounds appealing to you we would love to hear from you, the Retreat is in hiatus at the moment as we finish some of its infrastructure, and landscaping, but many workawayers have used it as a space of reflection and connection. The retreat is about 5 mins drive from Little River village and really suits someone or a couple with their own transport as it is a little isolated. You will be taking care of your own food as we do not live there.

    We also currently need a COUPLE to stay at our farm and help us with our animals and rental cabin. You need to be able to take initiative and take care of yourselves. You will have your own studio and share our kitchen and bathroom.
    Thanks for your interest.

    Look forward to hearing from you.

    We own a beautiful Health and Healing Retreat on the Banks Peninsula of the South Island New Zealand. We are looking for a person or couple who would like to help us manage this country Retreat. Some building skills, landscaping and gardening with a willingness to support other helpers and offer support when retreats are running.
    We do not live on the retreat so you would be responsible for your own food and well being. We provide all amenities including fast broad band. Your own accommodation. This is ideal for someone or a couple with energy to give but also looking for a chance to connect, slow down and relax. The Banks Peninsular is a stunning part of New Zealand.
