Empowering People to live Well

We are supporting 'community immunity' in our endeavour to protect your 'health and wellbeing'

We are snuggling into 4 weeks of hibernation and look forward to gathering together when we are on the other side of COVID19.

Aratika runs programs that are complementary to conventional medicine and welcome people with any type of cancer, past or present, to attend.


All our programs are based on the principles of integrative medicine. We align ourselves alongside the medical model and provide practical tools to support a person on their cancer journey.


We annually run two 5-day Residential Retreats. One in conjunction with Petrea King and Wendie Batho from Quest for Life Australia and one aligned with The Gawler Foundation.

Our retreats offer:

  • Whakawhanaungatanga: - a sense of family connection and building relationships.

  • Manaakitanga: - a warm welcome for each person with generous hospitality.

  • Karakia: - spiritual prayer and blessings to strengthen wellbeing.

  • Aroha: - loving one another through empathy and compassion.


We continue to develop on-going courses and workshops, in art and craft, nutrition, mind-body healing, and meditation guidance and practice.
