Canada When I sailed into New Zealand in 2011, I was handed Yuan Tze’s book “Voyage to the Shore”. Sometimes life has interesting ways of delivering exactly what we’ve requested! His work resonated deeply with me and I immediately signed up for a weekend retreat and teacher training. While I home educated two children, I had many opportunities to learn how to integrate Ren Xue into a busy schedule. I love bringing these ideas to my classes, workshops, and individual sessions. I use a trauma sensitive approach and have experience with diverse groups. Practising, teaching, and living Ren Xue has had a profound impact on how I am, how I have raised my children, and how I view living in this world. I am always grateful for opportunities to share what I have learned on this incredible journey.

See why heart-based teaching in children’s education is so important.

Qigong for highly sensitive persons

Qigong for highly sensitive persons

When I talk to adults who consider themselves highly sensitive, I hear a pattern in their responses. They never felt like they belonged. Their ideas were mocked. They felt misunderstood and sometimes bullied. They all wished they had someone who understood them as a child and that they hadn’t needed to hide parts of themselves. Most of them stopped allowing themselves to feel free. Many of them lost connections with their hearts and the ability to be more aware in the world.
