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.
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.
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 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.

Youth Tribe Art Connection is an eight-week after school art connection for female and male students ages 14+ lead by creative clinical arts therapist Hannah Eriksen-Gowing & empowerment life coach Dee Petit, who lead youth through a series of creative art projects and mindfulness activities. Participants are offered an opportunity to experience and explore their emotional well-being through creative art while reflecting on the Maori Health Model ‘Te whare tapa whā’ concepts as it relates to individual wholeness.
It is a safe ART space of inclusion, connection and involvement in positive, healthy relationships and simple acts of giving, mindfulness, self-learning, creativity and being active that uplift everyone involved. Our aim is to encourage, build trust, and inspire creative expression in the development and unfolding of individual personal identity, values and goals which gives our teenage participants access to another language and knowledge base. When youth feel safe, supported, loved and a sense of belonging, their confidence, willingness, and ability to participate in discovering and achieving their purpose and potential is unleashed and they then feel empowered to create positive change in their personal lives, families, and local neighbourhoods.
Each session builds upon our overall vision, which is to make an impact on our future leaders by assisting them in finding their True North, their internal compass in life. We incorporate visual arts, a range of art materials and recycled products in our art projects. All students will be able to participate at a level that is comfortable and suitable for them.
We provide students a space in which they can bring in their unique stories, cultural backgrounds and ethnic identities in order to collaborate on art projects that have personal meaning and serve as a reminder of the celebration of both diversity and togetherness.

Ozone therapy is her passion. It has been used in medicine since 1915
and now with 100 years of clinical use behind it has an impressive record in
improving health and restoring normal physiological function.
What might it do for you? Essentially ozone restores oxygen saturation
to the body’s tissues. With any form of illness, the oxygen levels drop and if
they get depressed 40% below normal cancer is encouraged to grow. Low
oxygen signals fatigue, usually becoming chronic. The oxidative (Life Force)
power of the body is reduced and metabolism goes down to a less efficient
level. Conversely, when the oxygen saturation is returned to normal there
is a strong chance of recovery of normal physiological function i.e.: A return
to better health.
Ozone therapy is unsurpassed as a method of oxygenation and is a cousin
of hyperbaric oxygen therapy. Six treatments are required to receive the ozone
effect and as metabolism improves vastly resulting benefits are very long
