During this year we have experienced a crisis that has touched the lives of everyone on the planet. Humanity as a whole is now at a crossroads. We can continue as we always have and allow the trajectory of our fate to continue, or we can take this extraordinary situation as a catalyst for positive change.

We invite you to join us for this special nine-day online retreat with Yuan Tze, who will share ancient wisdom and developments in western philosophy, science, medicine, and technology. You will learn the REN XUE tools and approaches to address the challenges in your life in a holistic, internal, and heart-driven way.

Throughout this process, you will be guided on a journey inward where you can gain greater awareness and clarity of your own consciousness. You will discover a clear and supported path to realization and wisdom, and an opportunity for humanity to thrive.

Whether you join the event live or watch the recording at a later time, the support available to you remains unchanged, and you will be immersed in the same powerful, loving, and nourishing Qifield.

We hope you will join us as on this path to realization and wisdom, not just for ourselves, but also for our children, for the future of humankind and Mother Earth. The time is now.

Yuan Tze’s workshop was recorded and is now available for you to watch at a time that suits you.

About REN XUE & Yuan Tze
REN XUE’s founder, Yuan Tze, has lived in New Zealand since 2002.  Born in China, Yuan Tze developed REN XUE and its disciplines after spending more than a decade in the West. REN XUE combines the best of both worlds. It draws from Yuan Tze’s deep knowledge of traditional Chinese wisdom culture including Daoism, Confucianism, Qigong, Buddhism, Traditional Chinese Medicine, I-Ching philosophy, Feng Shui, Taiji, Bagua and martial arts. Yuan Tze has integrated such ancient wisdom with modern philosophy, science, medicine, and technology to create a truly unique and comprehensive systems for developing the whole of life.

REN XUE is a wisdom system developed to help practitioners achieve greater health, happiness, sense of wellbeing, realization and wisdom. It helps us find inner harmony through practices that elevate body, mind and heart, which in turn helps us find outer harmony – in our personal relationships, with society, and with nature.

Learning from Yuan Tze

Learning from Yuan Tze is a unique experience, with his talks carrying powerful information infused with immense wisdom, love, and compassion. Such information can touch your life directly on a deep level and effect profound changes.

When talking, Yuan Tze uses far more than just the usual verbal communication. He also uses his heart and mind to directly transmit information to your heart and mind.

Yuan Tze’s teachings are in Chinese and are interpreted by his wife, partner, and interpreter, Melissa. For core REN XUE terminology, Melissa will use the original Chinese terms. Translations of these terms can be read here to help further explain each term and their place within REN XUE.

It’s important to remember that REN XUE is a big system and there is a clear path through it with lots of support. Concepts may be mentioned during lectures that you have not yet learned—being relaxed and open to Yuan Tze, and at ease with what you have not yet learned, will best support you to access the teachings.

The system of REN XUE has been developed by Yuan Tze to reflect totality, and as such, the delivery of the teachings is unique from other learning experiences. One of the treasures of Yuan Tze’s teaching style is that it allows the participant to quietly contemplate the possibilities that lie beyond absolute answers. Compared to how we receive most of our information online these days, some may experience this as slow-paced or repetitive.

There are two main things that you can do to reach optimal results.

  1. Be in your heart

Open your heart and listen to the teaching with your heart. Connect with Yuan Tze’s heart so he can exchange Qi and information with you smoothly. Unify with the Qifield and take everything into your heart. You can read more about heart-to-heart transmission here.

  1. Access the Qifield

A nourishing and powerful Qifield will be built for the event. This Qifield is to support all the participants so everyone can get the most out of the event. Opening your heart and unifying with the Qifield can help you get the most out of it.

Throughout the event, the Qifield will continue to change, and the change comes from the heart and consciousness of every participant. In other words, it is up to all participants to continue to uplift and strengthen the Qifield for the benefit of all.
