The Aratika Trust Board embodies the healing power

of working together.

In 2010 a group of women came together in Rotorua, New Zealand to offer hope and complementary care choices to people with cancer.  Their goal was to empower people on a healing journey using the principles of integrative medicine.  Their organization continues to serve  cancer thrivers from all over New Zealand.

The last 5 days have been life changing and life giving! Words can barely express the gratitude I feel. I honour Aratika Trust and their knowledge, love, wisdom and beauty. It has been a privilege. As a vet myself, having such a science behind all that was presented and the HUGE depth of knowledge gave me such an amazing base from which to learn from. I also honour the 'realness', humbleness, warmth and openness of all the Trustees - THANK YOU!

As a health professional I have done a lot of training and research into the topics covered. I could not fault anything. The quality, care and coherence of what was presented is world class. You could not find something better outside NZ. I whole heartedly recommend the retreat to anyone on a cancer journey.
