A place of connection. With yourself, with others, with Nature.
A space of imagination, creativity and innovation. Somewhere you can retreat to and write, practice yoga, enjoy good food and conversation. Somewhere you can walk . Lie in the field. Sit under the Kauri tree.
Here at Peka Peka, we like nothing more than gathering a group of diverse people together, feeding them well, providing them with space and practices to decompress and reconnect, then out of that space and the space in between each other, invite ideas to emerge.
This place, while at times so familiar, is new to us (you can read the beginning of its story here). Three years after moving in we’re still getting to know this place, lying in the field in gentle conversation with the land and asking what it wants of us. Developments continue to unfold. Ooooby Kapiti is in its very early days, a market garden is in the pipeline, a B&B is not too many months away.
We’re alive at an extraordinary time in the history of our species and our planet, you and I. If humanity is to thrive in the coming decades, we will need to be adaptive, creative, resilient, work together and do so joyfully. An increasing number of people are finding and living their purpose, creating their unique point of light and connecting with others. My wish is that Peka Peka in the months ahead, as its purpose unfolds, shines ever more brightly. In the meantime, you’ll find me in the field…
Out there beyond ideas of rightdoing and wrong doing
There is a field. I’ll meet you there.
When the soul lies down in that grass,
the world is too full to talk about.
Ideas, language, even the phrase each other
doesn’t make any sense.
