Pakari Resilience is an extraordinarily rewarding multi-day, multi-modal experience where participants are supported through a unique developmental journey.

It is a deep dive into simple yet highly effective resilience techniques that will serve you for life. Staff and equipment are handpicked to be of the highest quality and participants are supported through comprehensive pre and post adventure learning programmes. Resilience is not just a concept. It is an active state of being, it is multi-faceted, and it is essential. It is Pakari.

Resilience can be thought of as a modifiable, learnable process that is encountered through challenge. We believe it to be the ability to encounter resistance and grow through it. Here at Pakari we have separated resilience into seven ‘strands’ that can be explored individually to produce a more cohesive whole.  The Resilience program is a personal journey through the seven strands, learning about yourself and in doing so embedding highly effective tools and techniques to incorporate into your day-to-day routines.

Your personal state has a direct effect on your personal resilience, and your ability to own the situations you encounter in your life.

Itinerary

    Meet and greet group, includes briefing of the weeks activities. Platform laying for the culture needed to succeed.

  • Day 2

    Focus: Self regulation & self awareness
    Venture up into the interior of the park with Abel Tasman Canyons. This is a day of awe and wonder, of moving outside our comfort zone, and of re-discovering the pure joy of fun and play. Back to Anchorage for our first night for evening activities and dinner around the campfire.

  • Day 3

    Focus: Self regulation, coping & optimism
    Venture up into the interior of the park with Abel Tasman Canyons. This is a day of awe and wonder, of moving outside our comfort zone, and of re-discovering the pure joy of fun and play. Back to Anchorage for evening activities and dinner around the campfire.
  • Day 4

    Focus: Control, connection & purpose
    This is a day of movement, by kayak, on foot and in our own personal journey. We head toward the more secluded northern section of the park, taking in the utter magic of the famous Abel Tasman coastline. This is a transition point where we start to look forward, and putting our learnings toward the future. Evening activities and dinner around the campfire.
  • Day 5

    Focus: Reflect and transfer
    The final quest. We launch our kayaks into the sunrise and head north on our final kayak journey around Separation Point into Golden Bay. The boat ride back along the coastline gives time to retrace our movements of the week, and reflect on quietly on our personal learnings before we arrive back at our Marahau accommodation for our celebration dinner. We debrief together before our final session where we take our learnings, transferring them into an active plan to use in our daily lives. This is where the real fun starts.
