Queenstown, located on the South Island of New Zealand was the perfect place to hold this retreat given the close proximity to Aoraki (Mt. Cook). We began and ended our conference with members from the Ngāi Tahu who are the principal Māori iwi of the southern region of New Zealand. This special place always holds the energy of “coming home” and several of us got to intimately explore this magnificent island following the conference. Our first spot to visit was Aoraki (Mt. Cook) where we heard it was pouring rain upon departure from Queenstown but were greeted by a spectacular vista by the time we arrived.
