Ziptrek Ecotours, in collaboration with headlight and supported by lululemon Queenstown, is thrilled to announce the launch of a unique mindfulness event in the trees – to be held on Saturday 29 October.
Extending on New Zealand Mental Health Awareness Week’s 2022 theme of 'Reconnect – with the people and places that lift you up’, the Guided Mindfulness x Ziplining Experience event has been designed to help Whakatipu locals tune into their wellbeing and reconnect with nature –while also enjoying some ziplining fun!
Led by expert facilitators, the two-hour experience includes a 30-minute guided treehouse meditation and stretch, two fun ziplines and an (optional) thrilling 21m Kererū drop experience.
Tickets cost $60pp (gondola tickets to be purchased separately) with $15 from every ticket sold donated to local mental health trust, headlight.
The new charitable trust is supporting the mental wellbeing of the Whakatipu community by helping local people to talk about mental health. They have trained a team of local people with lived experience of mental health challenges to continue to bring the GoodYarn mental health workshops (previously delivered by Southern Wellbeing Trust) into more community locations and organisations and upskill the Whakatipu community regarding mental health and mental wellbeing.
This year’s event builds on the successful collaboration with Ziptrek Ecotours in 2021 which raised $7,500 for the GoodYarn community workshops.
