Chloe Waretini

Chloe Waretini is a facilitator, dancer and designer working in the fields of environmental action and social transformation. Growing up in the wonders of the rainforests in New Zealand, at the age of 16 she made a deep commitment to be a guardian of the living systems of our earth and to help humans find their ecological way of being within them. This has resulted in a multitude of experimental projects over the past 15 years to engage communities in connecting with and caring for their natural environment. Her favourite thing is to host people into deep, collective processes where transformative change can happen and new possibilities can come alive.

Since living in Montreal the past two years, she has grown her toolkit to include embodied practices such as Biodanza and delved into the shamanic realms of plant spirit healing. She works with a deep sensitivity and talent for creating safe spaces where people’s most beautiful contributions can come alive.


Who do you want to be and become in the age of ecological crisis?

“Look deep into nature, and then you will understand everything better.” Albert Einstein

2020 is more than the start of a new year, it’s the start of a new decade, the decade in which our society must make radical changes. It’s the decade in which we must realign ourselves with nature and find a deeply ecological way to be with ourselves and others on this planet.

Looking directly at the ecological crisis we’re facing is overwhelming. It seems each month more devastating reports are released and global summits being held with no meaningful progress. We care and we want to respond somehow but it’s daunting. Where do I start? Where is my power? What can I do? If we think about this crisis in layers, the base layer is ourselves. And if we’re not in alignment there then nothing we do will create anything truly different.

‘Surrender to nature’ is a call to action. It’s a process of going deep inside ourselves to discover our ways of being that are no longer in alignment and letting go. When we let go, we can find the stillness to sense how we want to be NOW. And from this place of clarity we can put ourselves into powerful action to create a better life for ourselves that is in accordance with nature – our nature and the greater nature that surrounds us.

Join us for a weekend journey into the heart of our natures, where each one of us can discover the soulful gifts we have to offer.
