The book is a terrific collection of New Zealand eco travel experiences ranging from well-known major operators to hidden gems throughout the country.

It’ll be a great travel companion for anyone exploring New Zealand and wanting to hunt out the best eco experiences on offer.

At Earthsounds we would love to give people the opportunity to explore or develope their relationship with the earth by using earth based healing methods.

We hope you can return to your everyday life with a spirit that has been uplifted through sound therapy sessions, walking and guided meditations, ritual, creative art, silence, solitude, drumming, wandering the hills or swimming in the river and also learning dowsing or organic gardening.

Earthsounds has over 600 acres where you are able to walk the earth with your bare feet (grounding), feel the vibrations of nature, sing the songs of the trees, reawaken the spirit and become well.

We can design a course that best fits you or just use our place for rest and rejuvenation.

  At Earthsounds Retreat we will nurture and guide you back to Mother Earth.
