Teacher Only Day: 29 May 20211
Have you ever wondered who you really are? Do you sense you have so much more to offer the world and yourself?
The upcoming Aoetaroa REN XUE Retreat is a wonderful opportunity to deepen the qualities of the heart, transform unhealthy patterns of thinking and cultivate self-awareness. Come & shine a light on your full potential, awaken your heart and (re)discover your true nature in a beautiful setting.
THE PROGRAMME Our programme of REN XUE and Yuan Qigong is designed to enhance the whole of life. REN XUE is a life cultivation system for uplifting life. Yuan Qigong is one of the practical discipline of REN XUE to effectively apply the theories and teachings to our own life. Yuan Qigong (also called Yuan Gong) improves the health not only of the body but also that of our heart and mind. As well as greater wellbeing, most participants report immediate benefits, including an increase in energy, vitality and balance and greater emotional resilience and stability.
The retreat is led by experienced REN XUE teachers who collectively offer a vast amount of knowledge and experience of Qigong and self-healing.
In the week we will:
Learn and deepen our understanding of life so we can live with more harmony within ourselves, with others and with the world.
Learn and practice Yuan Gong: a beautiful & gentle practice of moving and still meditations. Suitable for anyone, any age and any physical condition.
Experience Qi healing, a completely safe and gentle way to improve the condition of our whole body.
Learn how to use powerful self-healing tools and feel more settled, at peace with ourselves and others.
CAN I ATTEND IF I AM A BEGINNER? Absolutely. Everyone is welcome, including those very new to Yuan Gong. We strongly recommend you read “Wellbeing Begins With You” before you come. This will give you a good foundation in the theories and principles of Yuan Gong and REN XUE and make a real difference in your ability to experience deep change, and gain tangible long lasting benefit from the retreat.
