Public Schedule


Wangapeka Study and Retreat Centre, New Zealand, Feb. 12 – 25, 2021
Wisdom, Compassion and Non-Clinging Awareness
– a residential retreat –

Meaningful living begins with an intuition,
life, as vast-mystery-unfolding,
birthing the deeply compelling question;
how to live well in the midst of this dancing of everything and everyone.

Clarifying this natural state of being,
radical interconnectivity, creative and constantly dynamic.
Cultivating skills in primordial contemplation,
complete attunement and skilful engagement.

Discovering no-name sanity.
The ancients might have called this
Primordial Dharma.
Continuously transient, extravagantly creative,
competently and confidently home.

The retreat will be a precious opportunity to pause and refresh and re-evaluate everything. Day by day, inviting a flow of contemplation, meditation, discussion and movement while living with and on the land, we will explore the meeting point of mindfulness and deep ecology and our place in the world.

A Life of Complete Attunement and Skilful Engagement

We invite you to join us in a wonderful opportunity to nurture grounded, open, responsive engagement in the flow of your current living; wherever and however that might be.
