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.
