GIFT, SUCCEED & THRIVE

In order to thrive we need to support and contribute to the success of others; this is the ethos that flows through everything we do. Welcome to our community project website!

WHAT IS 'BELIEVE'?


The BELIEVE brand is a philosophy founded on the principle “when we gift and help others succeed, we all thrive”. It is rooted to community spirit and collective gifting. The BELIEVE community are like-minded individuals in pursuit of creating positive flow. Influencing, encouraging and inspiring others through the positive and impactful work we do. Demonstrating, through transparent, open and honest dialogue, our pay-it-forward principles.

THIS OUR VISION

AROHA WELLNESS RETREAT


“The architecture of how we live our lives is badly in need of renovation and repair” – Ariana Huffington.

Outside the rush and pressure of our present-day lives, we aim to create a recuperative haven for body, mind and spirit. A place that serves to simply re-connect us to our quieter inner selves. A space connected to earth’s energy by design, where the mind can calm and make space to expand our creative, natural being. For what matters most is that we find a way – any way – to recharge and renew ourselves.

We hope that you will become a part of the Aroha project journey and that we will have the opportunity to welcome you at the Aroha community retreat.

ENVIRONMENTAL

ENVIRONMENTAL


We work with intention; collaborating with others to discover better, more sustainable solutions and pledge out of respect for them and our planet to pass on our experiences and knowledge.

RESPONSIBLE TOURISM

RESPONSIBLE TOURISM

WORKING WITH INTENTION

We believe tourism has a social responsibility. Based on principles of social and economic justice, which simultaneously offer spiritually fulfilling experiences to travellers, without affecting the environment and local cultures.

Responsible tourism encourages alternatives and more mindful experiences and interactions between the tourism industry, local communities, the travellers and the environment, so that the travel experience can be reworked in a creative way in the personal life of all the people and communities involved.

WHEN YOU INSTIL VALUES TO NURTURE ONLY THE BEST YOU OFTEN ONLY GET THE BEST.
