CCI Aotearoa 2021

The New Zealand CoCo community welcomes you to our tenth CCI from Friday 22th to Thursday 28th January 2021.  Local and international co-counsellors are invited to  participate in a rich process of co-creation, sharing, recharge and deep connection.

The gathering is open to people who have completed a 40 hour basic training course in CCI Co-Counselling.



We are in a time of massive transition in the world right now! It is a time of potential and change. Many of us in the greater coco community are also feeling the pull of personal life transitions. This CCI will focus transitions: making difference where we can and accepting the rest with grace and compassion.


The Venue is Tauhara – a Retreat and Conference Centre located in Acacia Bay, overlooking Lake Taupo in the centre of New Zealand’s North Island.

“At the Tauhara Centre, we are welcoming and open to people from all different walks of life, all faiths, who hold many different views. By valuing openness and acceptance, we are creating a space for unity and community.”

Our daily programme will be co-created drawing on the diverse offerings, interests, and skills of participants. The cooperatively designed agenda will include workshops, CoCo sessions, music, dance, relaxation, nurturing, sharing great food and more.
