Sanctuary Mountain Maungatautari

Allow yourself a day to unwind and feel at home surrounded by the abundant life of the forest. You will be guided throughout the day by Rosie and Joyce who will offer a variety of invitations to notice, reflect and interact with the environment. Through purposeful slow walks, focusing on your senses and the gentle guided movement of Qigong you can explore your connections with the forest and feel your stresses drift away. All invitations are optional with some experiences as part of the group and some on your own.

We will walk at a slow pace with lots of stops and a maximum continuous time on your feet of just over an hour so the moderate track gradients and distance should not pose a problem to anyone with reasonable walking ability. We will be spending the day in Te Tūī a Tāne southern enclosure and based in the Events Centre which provides overhead protection from the weather.

Lunch can be included and accommodation is available at Sanctuary Lodge Maungatautari.
