Identity & Identification

Four-Day Workshop Replay with Yuan Tze

For our work on patterns it is crucial to work on the critical components that construct the false self such as identity and identification, as they are a pre-condition for the formation of healthy patterns.  Unsound identification and false identity and the unhealthy patterns they help create can contribute to the development of our life view, world view, and value system, so we need to know how to identify with what is true as this will determine the direction of life.

Because this is such an important topic Yuan Tze devoted two 2-day events to it.  They were delivered as Part 1 and Part 2 of one workshop.  With Part 1 being devoted to an overview of the topic from Yuan Tze and Part 2 to Q&A.

Take this special opportunity to dive into work on yourself that is essential for learning and growing.

Removing the Barriers to Your Heart

Online Workshop Series with Yuan Tze Replay

Comprising five one-day workshops, Yuan Tze helps us to understand and work on the patterns that are in the way of manifesting unconditional Five Xin: Trust, Openness, Love, Gratitude and Gongjing (True Respect).

Many of us are looking to create more happiness, health, and well-being.  Wherever we are at in this process, we need a clear direction and way to understand what is in the way of building on the positive aspects of life. When we know what is in the way, we can more clearly see and understand how to remove these obstacles and transform our lives.

One of the key pieces to improving our life is being connected with our heart on a deep level.  Our hearts hold the Five Xin qualities, as they are a part of our true nature.  If we look at the obstacles in our life, we can probably see that one or more of these heart qualities are weak or even missing.  They are covered up by our unhealthy patterns.  The good news is that there are tools in Ren Xue to understand and work on these obstacles, enabling these heart qualities to manifest unconditionally.

Register here to receive the full five-part series or below for individual workshops within the series.

Removing the Barriers

Workshop 1: Transforming Patterns for Manifesting Unconditional Trust Replay

Unconditional trust is a natural state of our true heart. However, through our life experiences we withdraw our trust and gradually lose the ability to connect with this state.  It is often easy for us to come up with reasons outside of ourselves to not feel trust, but when we focus on these external obstacles, we hand over the ability to make positive change.  Instead, we can focus inward and make true change from within our own hearts to help uplift our lives.

Many patterns have formed in relation to the inability to trust. It might feel like a big undertaking to work our way back to unconditional trust. A clear direction and understanding can help us feel safer and more supported in facing these obstacles.

Feeling this state unconditionally might feel like a big leap, but why not let our true nature come forward?


Workshop 2: Transforming Patterns for Manifesting Unconditional Openness Replay

Unconditional openness is a natural state of the true heart. It enables us to see things as they are and embrace life whole-heartedly. However, in reality, we shut our hearts too readily, especially when we get judgmental or feel challenged in any way. This is the result of unhealthy patterns restricting our views. They are what stands in the way of us feeling the true comfort, ease, and freedom of unconditional openness.

Facing the aspects of life that stand in the way of remaining open to every present moment can be challenging.  Having a clear direction and tools to remove the obstacles that stand in the way of openness is important to feel supported in this process.

How might your life be different if you led with an open heart?


Workshop 3: Transforming Patterns for Manifesting Unconditional Love Replay

Unconditional love is a natural state of the true heart. It is a quality that is so powerful and energizing that it can uplift our whole life.  However, in reality, the manifestation of unconditional love is rare. Instead, love can be associated with unpleasant experiences and challenges.

But where do these more negative associations come from?  Is it from love, or is it from our incomplete views and ideas of what love should look like.  It can be our own expectations of love that get in the way of connecting with unconditional love.

Recognizing, facing, and replacing our own limited ideas of what we think love should entail will help us move closer to experiencing the unconditional love, that is always in our heart.

How would your relationships to yourself and others change if you were connected to unconditional love?


Workshop 4: Transforming Patterns for Manifesting Unconditional Gratitude Replay

Gratitude is a common quality and something many of us are already working towards strengthening in our lives.  But it is not that uncommon to struggle with this quality or want to find exceptions.  One of the most effective ways to find gratitude more easily is to see more clearly what unhealthy patterns are in the way of being grateful.

Unconditional gratitude is a natural state of the true heart. Being able to face the negative patterns and replace them with healthier ones that bring us closer to unconditional gratitude can be challenging.  Having a clear approach and direction is necessary in our process towards connecting with this natural state of our heart.  

How might your life change if you could stay connected with your heart and with gratitude in those situations?


Workshop 5: Transforming Patterns for Manifesting Unconditional Gongjing Replay

Unconditional Gongjing (True Respect) is a natural state of the true heart. If we are truly respecting something for what it is, then the other natural qualities of our heart (trust, openness, love, and gratitude) are manifesting as well.  Living life in this state can lead to a continuous healthy exchange with ourselves and everything around us.

However, most of us find it challenging to connect with this quality in a variety of ways.  It is our unhealthy patterns that cloud our ability to experience life in a state of Gongjing.  When we can face and transform these negative patterns, we can find ourselves closer to our true nature and the true state of our hearts – feeling true respect for everything and everyone in every moment.

If we were each able to live and connect with ourselves and everything around us from this state, can you imagine the positive changes we would see in the world?


20 Years of Ren Xue

Watch the Free Replay

Twenty years ago, Yuan Tze left the country he grew up in and his family and moved to New Zealand. He did so with the aspiration to establish and use Ren Xue to help people. Yuan Tze would like to invite you to revisit the two decades together, sharing with you his internal journey and reviewing this process from the heart.

Many things have happened in the past 20 years. How has the world changed? How have you changed? How has Ren Xue changed? What does the road ahead look like, for you and for Ren Xue?

Living From The Heart

Online Workshop Series with Yuan Tze Replay

Comprising six one-day workshops, Yuan Tze helps us to dispel the unintentional ignorance that prevents us from accessing the treasures of the True Self and the wisdom that lies within.

For each of us, the true way to create a better life is to uplift ourselves by making real change and developing realization. In doing so, our wisdom will grow and create a stronger foundation for how we live. Your True Self is a reservoir holding infinite wisdom—wisdom that is essential to attaining a better life because it enables us to clear the root cause of our problems and live a truly healthy and meaningful life.

In this sereis Yuan Tze helps us to deepen our work on Xin Ling —the practice of connecting with and applying the five essential qualities of the heart to life: Trust, Openness, Love, Gratitude, and Gongjing. When our Xin Ling is in a whole and natural state, we can reach our True Self.

Whether you join Yuan Tze's session live or watch the replay recordings, the support of the same powerful, loving, and nourishing Qifield is available to you.

Register here to access the full six-part series as replay or individual topics within the series below.

Workshop 1: True Forgiveness - A Road to Liberation Replay

Being unable to forgive is one of the main sources of pain and suffering in life. In this state, life can be filled with anger, resentment, or even hatred. An inability to forgive creates invisible shackles that lock our Xin Ling, making it impossible to enjoy being in the moment and accessing the wisdom of our True Self. Learning to forgive in a true way can make an enormous difference in life and is essential to restoring a sense of peace and freedom.

True forgiveness is unconditional. However, this does not mean we condone everything and abandon good principles or responsibility. On the contrary, true forgiveness is the true way of following good principles and taking responsibility. When we connect with our Xin (heart) and use wisdom to understand a challenging situation, the process of true forgiveness happens naturally. 


Workshop 2: Humility - A key to Gongjing (True Respect) Replay


A bright and healthy heart is the natural state of our heart. In Ren Xue, an important indicator that our heart is in this state is when it has the presence of the Five Xin (trust, openness, love, gratitude, and Gongjing).

In particular, Gongjing indicates that all of the five qualities are present. This final heart quality is not only essential for Xin Ling but also provides the key to opening the door to our True Self.

To fully connect and open the door to Gongjing, there is another magical key: Humility


Workshop 3: Learn to Cherish and Find Gratitude Replay

Everything we have experienced and received, either in the past or in the future, has a special meaning and value and, therefore, is worth being treated as so. However, this may not seem that straightforward to many people, and it is not always that easy to do so unconditionally.

In life, when we fail to cherish what we have, loss or even damage can ensue. We all know how important gratitude is, but often it is missing from our heart; we seem to lose it more easily than we think. The ability to cherish unconditionally is a good way to build the foundation for the cultivation and manifestation of true gratitude.



Workshop 4: Kaixin Verse - A shortcut to opening the Heart Replay

Yuan Tze’s Kaixin Verse is used in the preparation of some of the Yuan Gong methods. The verse helps practitioners connect with the five essential qualities of the heart and deepen their practice.

It is especially important for the work on Xin Ling and making good use of it will greatly help speed up the progress. In this workshop, Yuan Tze will help you gain a deeper understanding of the Kaixin Verse and discuss ways to apply it creatively, including in your everyday life.

Are you ready to learn how to nurture the opening of your heart?


Workshop 5: Relationships - Build heart-based, meaningful relationships Replay

Life is a process of constantly relating. At any moment, we are engaging in a relationship with ourselves, other people, all the objects and beings around us, and nature and the universe. The quality of our relationships, therefore, plays a significant role in determining the quality of our life. Being able to build a healthy relationship is therefore vital.

A healthy relationship is one that promotes the health, wellbeing, and growth of all parties involved. When we are unable to maintain a healthy relationship with ourselves and the external world, all kinds of problems can be expected, and this is the reality of many people’s lives. To build harmonious and meaningful relationships, our Xin Ling is a key component.


Workshop 6: Creativity - Find solutions and build a better life with the creativity of your heart Replay

Your heart is a source of infinite creativity. In this workshop, Yuan Tze will invite you to open your heart, consciousness, and Shen to learn about and discover the creative power of your Xin Ling. He will also guide you through practical ways in which you can make good use of this creativity.

The uplifting power of a truly connected heart can play an essential role in changing and sculpting your life. When used properly, it can not only benefit your own life but also help uplift humanity in a limitless way. 

Are you ready to connect with your infinite creativity to transform your life?


Online Workshop Series with Yuan Tze

The state we are in plays a vital role in our health, happiness, sense of wellbeing and ability to grow and develop realization and wisdom.  In this series of six one-day workshops, Yuan Tze will work with you through all the essential elements for a good state—relaxed, calm, natural, integrated & unified, harmonious, and Jue Cha (self-awareness and self-observation).

Step by step, you will be able to activate the inner tools that you can use to create a good state so that, no matter how the outer world changes, you can live in the way that is most meaningful and nourishing for your own life and those around you.

Workshop 1 - Relaxed

Beginning with 'Relaxed,' Yuan Tze helps you gain a deeper understanding of this essential element of a good state. And to integrate the learning, you can practice with Yuan Tze in a strong Qifield where you can truly experience the feeling of being ‘relaxed’.

A good state plays a crucial role in our health, quality of life, and growth.

Are you ready to learn how to cultivate and master your ability to create and maintain this healthy and harmonious state?


Workshop 2 - Calm

Being 'calm' is essential for building a good state. However, for most people remaining calm amidst the busyness of daily life can be a real struggle. The exploration of this element will be a great journey of self-discovery.

In a strong Qifield, get ready to truly experience the feeling of being 'calm'.

Are you ready to learn how to cultivate and master your ability to create and maintain this healthy and harmonious state?


Workshop 3 - Natural

Being 'natural' may not be as straightforward to understand and apply as the other elements of a good state. However, it provides an essential foundation.

Discover how 'natural' can help you achieve a sense of freedom, ease, and self-determination with no disturbance by anything, at any moment.

Learn Yuan Tze explains aspect of this topic that he's never shared before.


Workshop 4 - Integration & Unification

The separation of body, Qi, heart, consciousness, and Shen (True Self) is one of the main causes of the problems we have in life. Working on integration and unification is, therefore, essential if we want to deal with problems effectively.

During this workshop, Yuan Tze will guide you through what it means to be integrated, and the benefits it can bring.


Workshop 5 - Harmony

Harmony is the ultimate manifestation of a healthy relationship born out of unification. Internally, it is the relationship between Jing, Qi, and Shen and the relationship with oneself. Externally, it is one’s relationship with all, including other people, other forms of life, objects, nature, and the universe.

Discover more about how the harmonious state is not only extremely beneficial for all aspects of life but, most importantly, creates fertile conditions for the True Self to come forward and manifest.


Workshop 6 - Jue Cha

This is the concluding workshop in the Be the Master of Your State series.

Jue Cha is the practice of exercising self-awareness and self-observation. After working on all the previous five elements of a good state, it is now time to use your ability to maintain this state so that you may work towards the development of realization and wisdom.

Are you ready be the true master of your life?

Seeing Your Original Face 2 - Nine-day Online Retreat Replay

When life is controlled by unhealthy patterns, the True Self and its wisdom cannot manifest. Life will inevitably be the work of the ignorance of the false self. This puts life on the path of creating all kinds of problems. Consequently, natural qualities of life such as health, true happiness, a sense of wellbeing, and growth will not have a chance to manifest

The focus of this 10-day retreat, which took place in France in May 2023, is to work intensively on two of the Ten Fundamental Patterns identified by Ren Xue: Polarized Thinking and Over-Generalization in order to make headway in our effort to shed the false self and let the True Self manifest.

Yuan Tze, the main teacher of this retreat, communicates directly with you on the heart, consciousness, and Shen (True Self) levels.  With a special focus on two of the core fundamental patterns that are at the foundation of our false self, Fixed Expectations and Hiding and Avoiding, Yuan Tze takes us on a journey of understanding how these two patterns shape our lives and help us through the process of transforming them at the deepest level.

Many other Ren Xue teachers also contribute to the program, sharing their wisdom from applying Ren Xue to their lives.
