You heal in community.

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. Along with our volunteers and facilitators we have grown!

Letters of gratitude.

You have supported me and given the knowledge, tools and aroha to work at putting harmony in my life instead of insurmountable grief. THANK YOU. The schedules were full and enjoyable. PLEASE KEEP UP the fantastic job of giving.

This was an absolute game changer for me, just coming to terms with my diagnosis and plan going ahead. I’m walking out of here with a great mindset and a strong sense of hope.      Courtney T - May 2023


Words cannot describe how much this meant to me, confirmation, acceptance, joyful, informative, empowerment and many more. This retreat needs to be encouraged by the medical world in NZ. Thanks so much Team.  

- VIV R 2023

As a health psychologist (who works in the oncology field) and someone who has had several close family members walk this path, I cannot recommend this retreat experience highly enough. Just life changing. Book ASAP to avoid missing out!
