Rediscovering the natural mind through the senses.
Immerse yourself in a refreshing weekend of yoga, meditation, discussion, creative visualisation and movement – with Dyana Wells.
Begin the New Year with weekend of cleansing the senses, reclaiming your own experience, freeing your mind, and creating space for new creative impulses.
The particular focus of this weekend is the spacious radiance of sensing.
The world is a manifestation of our sensing, held in the majesty of our natural mind. How clearly do we see? How well are we connecting to the world around us? What is the experience of our natural, spacious mind?
To create change we first need to see what is. We do this by learning to open the senses fearlessly to what is actually going on.
This is a weekend of direct exploration into the nature of perception and communication, with ourselves and the world around us.

Dyana Wells has been a student of yoga, meditation and the spiritual journey, most of her life. She became hooked on yoga as a teenager of 15 and began her serious training with the Auckland Yoga Academy over 20 years ago. In her early thirties she met her first teachers of Dharma: Tarchin, Namygal Rinpoche and Cecilie Kwiat. This led to many years of investigation and meditation, diving into the mystery of the mind and the nature of awareness.
She has more recently studied with Mark Webber. She has sat through many long retreats and slips away into nature regularly to re-establish herself. She has worked deeply with the teachings of Tibetan Buddhism, the Theravadin traditions of South East Asia, and the spiritual manuals of the Yoga Sutras and Bhagavad Gita. Her focus has always been to understand and apply these teachings in her daily life. What is the pathway to freedom and what gets in the way? How relevant is the philosophy of ancient scriptures in today’s world?
Dyana has three children, three grandchildren and lives at Orere Point, a small sea side community on the Firth of Thames.
She is the course director and a teacher on the 200 and 500 Hour Integrated Yoga Teachers Training Programs at Kawai Purapura.
