Shirley Tuffery – Naturopath

Shirley Tuffery has been dedicated to a path of  self discovery and Truth since the early 1970s when, having recently graduated with a Bachelor of Social Sciences Degree, majoring in Psychology, she landed in Canada where she  experienced a ‘spiritual awakening’. At this time she was introduced to Astrology, vegetarianism and ‘alternative’ natural therapies which laid the foundation for her subsequent life’s journey. Going on to qualify and practice as a Naturopath in the early 1980s, she combined her love of healthy living, self development,  education , and service with her Astrological counselling,  helping others psychologically and spiritually , on their journey to self understanding.
Through her years of  further in depth study, she has also served as a meditation teacher, and co-ordinator of her local spiritual group, and is more passionate than ever about helping people make some sense of their lives and find answers not only to the WHAT in their life, but to the WHY,  in the deepest spiritual sense.  

Her current passion and  focus includes healthy lifestyle education and weight loss coaching, organic plant based nutritional supplement business, Naturopathic health care, spiritual meditation, and all things colourful and creative. 

Marijana Jovanovic – Naturopath

I am qualified Naturopath, Medical Herbalist and Nutritionist with a science background in Industrial Chemistry and Environmental Science.  I am founder of Change Naturopathy based in Auckland, New Zealand. My mission is to share and inspire how to use the healing power of nature for balancing your physical, emotional, and spiritual health. I help identify the root cause of your health issue, while educating how to achieve a balanced lifestyle, restore health, and find vitality. I am focusing on the wellbeing of busy women, children and families, particularly anxiety management, which is part of the program that I am offering with other practitioners here in Shiloh.

Anita Vlasic-Manaia

BASW, MAAT(clinical)
I am currently an Arts Therapist in South Auckland and I’m passionate about using creativity and nature as healing tools. I was a Social Worker in South Auckland working with youth and was inspired  to study Arts Therapy at Whitecliffe School of Arts and Design. I saw a gap and a need for alternative therapies for young people in South Auckland and in particular approaches that incorporated indigenous models of healing. I  resonated with Shiloh’s holistic vision of supporting the community I work and live in with well being, creativity and education.  I am married to Wiremu Manaia and we have 6 children between us and 4 grandchildren.  I was inspired by Dee’s passion for Shiloh’s mission after meeting with her and was invited to come on the board.

Dads and Lads Fishing Programme

Dads and Lads is an 2-day programme that teaches men and their boys how to fish, using simple and inexpensive methods. Something that is missing in the lives of many boys is quality time spent with a father or father figure.

This programme will encourage the boys and their fathers or male caregivers to spend time learning together and enjoying each other’s company. This programme is specifically designed to promote a healthy lifestyle and get the family, especially the young people outdoors in nature using their physical strength, their newfound knowledge and their ingenuity to catch a fish for the family. It also encourages Dads and Lads to achieve their goals of spending quality time together and with other men & boys in their communities, while being inspired to learn a new sport that is a life skill that can be used throughout their lifetime.

The principle teacher, Bill Hohepa has seen the benefits this programme offers reinforced time and again when Camp Hohepa ‘old boys’, now with families of their own, have contacted him to say it was the best time of their lives and they are teaching their own children the skills he taught them.

The ART Collective Project

Artists from diverse cultural backgrounds living in Auckland are working together to teach a wide range of original practices in an open art space that offer opportunities of self-development in one’s individual art practice. As a collective that teaches various modalities of art, we help participants to use different materials to produce artwork that is relevant to them. Even if students don’t think of themselves as creative, we want to create an environment that encourages them to have fun and be playful in their art.

The ART Collective Project offers you the opportunity to uncover and develop your  artistic creative talents for beginners and emerging artists. With assistance from our collective professional artists you will be inspired and gently guided into using the mediums of palette knife painting, watercolour, acrylic, life drawing, and sewn textile fibre art. As with all creative processes it offers a therapeutic environment to be nourished by.  No experience is necessary, just a desire to create!

Each participant will be encouraged to explore and express the wonderment of ART through wide range of mediums. Through discovery and play one uncovers personal jewels that lay beneath the surface.

Back 2 Basics Programme

Restaurant Chilling Out Classy Lifestyle Reserved Concept

We assist people to learn the ‘why’ we must change, and the motivation to do so!

Back 2 Basics is a 6-week program that is a face to face, interactive, educational experience which teaches youth, young mothers, and households to understand the basics of our physiology and how the body systems all work together as a functioning whole (nothing exists in isolation). This foundational theory will be balanced out with the practical hands-on cooking experience, using seasonal fruits, vegetables and nutrient rich ingredients which will focus on experiencing how easy it can be to sustain healthy families by providing simple, nutritious, cost-effective meals

The core aim of Back to Basics, is to demonstrate how we feel and function when in a state of wellbeing and how we can learn to take self-responsibility by being equipped with the tools to make better lifestyle choices. Thus, not only preventing illness, but achieving vibrant health, strength, and vitality.

Our goal is to provide educational and practical knowledge that is easy to implement, enabling participants to make healthy lifestyle choices to balance body and mind. Promoting a healthy lifestyle in the home and raising healthy children ensures positive happy attitudes that encourage all to actively contribute to our communities.

At the end of the course, the participants will understand the basics of the human body and its functions and the connection between physical and mental health. The meal preparations, using a variety of simple, tasty and cost-effective recipes, will encourage the participants to integrate and apply the learned knowledge and cooking skills into their daily lives using the practical skills and techniques taught during the six-week program.

The focus is on education, self-responsibility, empowerment, wellness, and prevention. We aim to provide basic knowledge that will form a solid foundation for future generations.
