Bev’s Blog

Te Wahi Ora Women’s Retreat co-founder Beverly Holt has recently started her blog.

Bev’s Blog is my ‘word journey’. I am writing what comes to the surface. During the past 50 years I have been privileged to witness the expanding awareness of the women around me. Over the years my heart-felt cry for sisterhood has searched for expression. I find myself compelled to try and turn my observations into words”

Te Wahi Ora Women’s Retreat Writers BLOG

Our writers BLOG came out of our regular ‘Women’s Writing Weekends’ facilitated by Hilary StarAt Te Wahi Ora Women’s Retreat women have been sharing their creativity through writing. Our experience is that as we read and hear the words from these ‘many voices’, something new and healing begins to emerge from within us. We can also hear that the healing pathways that lead us individually into wholeness and wisdom, are amazingly varied! This blog is a chance to glimpse and to add our own ‘voices’ to the ‘many paths’ women are using to move towards wholeness. Hence the name of our writers Blog – Many Paths, Many Voices.

Juliet Batten –

Juliet Batten has developed a Website that is very supportive of women’s spirituality.   You will enjoy her inspirational Seasonal Blogs and if you possibly can join Juliet’s Web-rituals, grab the opportunity!

During these rituals you will be led by Juliet, together with other women from around NZ and Australia, to experience the healing and insightful steps of a guided meditation and ritual. There is a short group debrief at the end. It’s well worth the cost of $22.
