Petrea King & Wendie Batho

From Quest for Life Foundation NSW Australia



Aratika Trust is excited to have Petrea King & Wendi Batho from Quest for Life return to facilitate another 4 night/5 day Wellbeing Retreat for us from Fri Mar 27th-Turs Mar 31st 2020 at the Tauhara Centre, Acacia Bay, Lake Taupo.


Petrea is a well-known author, inspirational keynote speaker, teacher and facilitator. She is also qualified as a naturopath, herbalist, clinical hypnotherapist, yoga and meditation teacher.


In 1983 Petrea was diagnosed with acute myeloid leukemia and was not expected to live. However, she will share her story having survived and will inspire us with what she has learned along the way. 


She is at the forefront of wellness education and is a frequent lecturer at medical and other conferences. She has written 9 best selling books & runs programmes at the Quest for Life Foundation, which she founded in NSW Australia.


Petrea has counseled hundreds of people living with cancer individually and through residential programs and workshops. She sees a crisis as a catalyst for personal growth and an opportunity for healing and peace.


This Retreat is for people with a cancer diagnosis past or present who are interested in learning lifestyle medicine they can implement themselves to help improve their own health. We recommend bringing a support person if you can, they will take part in all sessions and join in for all meals & activities too.
