Aotearoa Retreat Centre Project
The Ren Xue Family Summer camping event on 15-22nd January 2022, was a special opportunity for us to connect - with ourselves, with each other and with the land.
There was time for practice, walks, canoeing, kayaking and swims enjoying the beautiful natural environment of land, sea and estuary. There was also plenty of talking and visualising how it will be when the dream for the Ren Xue retreat centre is realised - how the farm will run and all the amazing opportunities there, the dream for a healing centre and a Ren Xue community where we can all support each other to grow. The land worked it's magic on us all as we took the time to feel into this place and our own connection with it.
We joined in a very precious time together while Yuan Tze led us through building a Qifield for the land - we connected our hearts with this place, with each other, with the past and with the future. We hope that this place - the physical home for Ren Xue - will form a solid base for harmony internally and externally- a place that can ripple out it's positive effects into the world.
