Grounded, connected and alive is how I feel after a 3-day tantric couples retreat by Ellie Wilde. 
Phil and I have had so many breakthroughs, so so many laughs and have connected on such a deep and delicious level. 
Feeling so grateful for discovering Ellie. It’s the second retreat I have done with her this year, the first being the Sexual Priestess one I did in April. Which was about connecting with our sexuality as a goddess that we are, and healing sexual wounds plus heaps more. 
With ages from early 20’s to mid 60’s in both retreats and people coming from all over NZ and Aus, her work is truly life-changing. she teaches with so much grace, humour and wisdom. I can not recommend her retreats enough! And I look forward to attending more of them 🙂

I did a weekend women’s retreat with Ellie. I’ve left it a few weeks to make sure the changes/ effects are real. They are.
Before the workshop, I experienced weeks of heaviness that I couldn’t get thru, or hold space for, and no one in my life could help.
I dragged hatred, jealousy, and shame into the circle to be witnessed and grappled with. Yes, some of the heaviest ones!  During the weekend I found release, holding, care, challenge, much learning, lushious-ness and eventually, fun.
Being in a circle of women focused on love and healing was a powerful and transformational experience. Ellie has the skills , expertise and creative energy to hold a space that nurtures and engaged all my senses, body mind and soul. I’ve done a lot of personal development, and this rates with the most powerful at the same time as pleasurable.
Thank you, Ellie, for this work, and all the women present.
I have much more space in my being, a big weight has lifted, and I’m joyful again.
I see now how this work connects us to ” heaven on earth.” I am getting delightful glimpses of this in the last few weeks, more presence and gratitude and awareness of the miracle of being in this beautiful body here on earth. It’s amazing how much our unreceived emotions colour our view on life.
If you have the chance, just do this work with Ellie.
Ellie’s style is to give us back our power. Our ability to express emotion, connect with our bodies and take responsibility for our lives. In a creative, fun, sexy format. Not for the faint hearted, but neither is love!

 The first-time experience of having my 1st chakra ‘sacred spot’ activated by Ellie was one of the most nurturing experiences I’ve been priveleged to have during my lifetime of 59+ years. I felt deeply held and nourished with compassion, empathy, love, patience, respect, and reverence. One unexpected, but beneficial, lasting result of this has been a consistent daily bowel movement every morning since then. This is a clear systemic improvement compared to a 55+ year history of irregularity & being prone to constipation. I’m grateful for Ellie’s contribution towards my personal development and evolution.

“I have never felt so open and vulnerable with another human being and yet so accepted. In my session with Ellie, I was able to heal a lot of shame and discover a deeper connection to myself and my sexuality”
– Stephen, Australia


“Ellie, the work you do is so potent and profound. I’ve done a lot of stuff over the past 10 years and never experienced anything like it or been able to go so deep in my releasing before. You held such a safe and nurturing space for me to explore the deepest and darkest parts of myself and at the same time, love and embrace my inner goddess… for that, I have so much gratitude.”
– Nic, Tauranga


“Working with Ellie has helped me to deepen my relationship, I learnt that the most important relationship I have is the one I have with myself and that affects all other relationships I have. I now feel a deeper connection to myself and am much more empowered in my whole life as well as my important relationships”

 Thank you so much for the opportunity to connect with and celebrate my wild woman. The experience has been incredibly liberating and a lot of fun! I’ve absolutely loved connecting and sharing the wild experience amongst sisters – (Wild Sensuality retreat at Rataroa Retreat with Ellie )


Divine. What a lovely opportunity to talk intimately with other women and share our experiences as women. A fantastic environment to rediscover your wildness and connection to nature. A hot tub under the stars and chocolate- need I say more?! -(Participant-Wild Sensuality retreat at Rataroa Retreat with Ellie) 


What an amazing natural environment, completely secluded from the outside world. Ellie was a great facilitator to encourage exploring the “wild woman” inside us. It was an insightful journey for me and it was wonderful to witness other women’s journeys. I feel lighter and more at peace. -(Participant-Wild Sensuality retreat at Rataroa Retreat with Ellie) 

Thank you so much that was perfect. Being able to hear other women’s stories, and wisdom helped me gain a lot of clarity and feel more empowered to make difficult but necessary decisions.              -Lara Nz

The perfect space to be held in.  The location is full of healing energy, which helps you to connect with self and begin or continue on a healing journey. The workshop was fluid in order to meet each attendees needs, and was changed to facilitate everything that came up. An amazing experience to be had, to connect with your wild woman essence, my tits haven’t been exposed to so much natural breeze in years! A beautiful way to be cared for and nurtured on your own individual journey. The space held for you by other women was magical and transformational helping you to explore your true self and nature. Thank you for providing this unique opportunity to connect to my wild essence. – Wendy Nz
