Deepen your understanding & experience of Relaxed
We invite you to learn how to Be the Master of Your State
A good state plays a crucial role in our health, quality of life, and growth. In this series of six one-day workshops, Yuan Tze shares his wisdom on the essential elements of a good state—being relaxed, calm, natural, integrated and unified, harmonious, and lastly, Jue Cha (self-awareness and self-observation). You will learn how to cultivate and master your ability to create and maintain this healthy and harmonious state.
This series helps you develop effective strategies for coping with stress and improving your general wellbeing - all six workshops are available to you here.
Whether this is your very first REN XUE learning experience, or you have been using REN XUE to work on your state for many years, this workshop will provide the opportunity to deepen your understanding of state and strengthen the foundations for the development of realization and wisdom.
Workshop 1: Relaxed
Being relaxed means that both the body and the consciousness are free of tension. In fact, the relaxation of one relies on the relaxation of the other. If the body is not relaxed, it is hard to relax the consciousness, and vice versa.
In his six-part series on Be the Master of your own State Yuan Tze begins with the quality of being relaxed. During this workshop Yuan Tze shares his teachings of what it truly means to be relaxed and helps us gain a deeper understanding of this essential element of a good state.
To integrate the learning, you are given the opportunity to practice with Yuan Tze in a strong Qifield where you can truly experience the feeling of being relaxed.
In joining this event, you will be immersed in the strong Qifield not only created and nurtured by Yuan Tze but also strengthened by the global REN XUE community who are on this journey together. In this strong Qifield, you will have the opportunity to truly experience harmony.
Are you ready to learn how to cultivate and master your ability to create and maintain this healthy and harmonious state?
Please note: The final duration of this workshop was 4 hours 8 minutes

About REN XUE and 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.
- 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.
- 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.
