Join us in Kaiapoi for this unique, combination livestream & in-person Ren Xue Retreat
We are pleased to announce this one week retreatat the Blue Skies Centre in Kaiapoi, combining the Yuan Tze 9 day online retreat with our own programme. This will be a unique opportunity to get together as a community, to learn together & grow together.
The Blue Skies Centre in Kaiapoi (Christchurch) will be familiar to many - it was one of the first venues where Yuan Tze ran his original Retreats & Teacher Training Programme. Many of you will also remember the amazing food provided by our own local chef Lloyd Miller at these events - hence we are very happy to say Lloyd will again be providing us with nourishing food and good company this year.
Registration is open to anyone in New Zealand who likes to participate in Yuan Tze’s on line retreat in a supportive environment. REGISTER BY CLICKING HERE.
Food: Nourishing but simple. Please indicate dietary requirements on the registration form. BYO snacks, specialty teas, real coffee, etc.
Venue: Blue Skies in the Main Complex (which includes the A frame building) - options of Twin-share, shared Bunk Rooms, or Camping (you can indicate who you like to share with).
Cost for Retreat food and accommodation: $450-$550 depending on your choices
The Retreat format will condense 9 days of Yuan Tze's online Retreat into 7 days (the venue is not available for the full 9 days), & hence our programme will start with 2 full days of listening to Yuan Tze's teachings, morning and afternoon. On Day 3 we will have caught up and will join Yuan Tze’s sessions in real time. The afternoon programme, which we will develop together, will look something like this:
Arrival from around 5pm on November 8 - we will start with dinner together followed by chat & practice.
Spaces for this Retreat will be limited - we suggest you register as soon as you can. Once your deposit is paid, your place on the retreat is confirmed. REGISTER BY CLICKING HERE.
We recognise these are very changeable times, & hence we will monitor the Covid-19 situation in Christchurch & around New Zealand, & change plans if required. In the unlikely event the Retreat had to be cancelled, all registration fees would be refunded.
Due to the extra-ordinary recent events, we realise some of you may be experiencing financial hardship. If this is the case and you wish to attend the Retreat, we will do our best to make this possible. If you are in a position to help someone else and would like to pay an additional amount that would be much appreciated.
Please let us know if you have any questions or want to talk through special requirements you may have. Please contact Ans via: email@example.com or Ollie at firstname.lastname@example.org
