This course introduces how to nurture mental-spiritual wellbeing using Chinese Medical and Yogic teachings. The seven step pathway offers clear, simple guidance on HOW to connect your Heart and mind and open up to your deeper knowing. 

To embody these understandings we encourage you to follow the pre-recorded classes of guided meditation Tibetan Yoga, and Qigong to anchor your alignment. 

Through the communal mirror and the interactive  group sessions, we explore the functions of Awareness and our everyday thinking minds. Using stories from our group we practice how to align these two super powers to open our Hearts and minds to live our most authentic life.

Cameron Tukapua

Wellbeing Leader, Healer, Teacher, Visionary, Leader

As a sensitive high energy person it was massive relief to discover and start studying Chinese Medicine at age 21. It literally saved my life! Immediately I could see where I belonged in the world and how to strengthen my mind-body balance. This time tested medical tradition shows us how we connect to the world around us, and how the body-mind is one system . Teaching and learning has been a lifelong passion. For nearly a decade I owned and directed the "Christchurch College of Holistic Healing" offering full time Acupuncture practitioner training. In 1993 I co-led Mind-body Wellbeing retreats in Hawaii, China, and New Zealand. What I know is people transform when they learn how to be their own healers and teachers. What we really need to know is inside us all. Facilitating connection to ourselves, others and universal energies, is my contribution to the Wellbeing revolution. The YBY courses provide simple clear reference points on HOW to nurture lifelong wellbeing for the body mind. The focus is on connecting to our true Heart nature. The teachings are Uplifting, Heartfelt and Unifying.

What others say

“What I found (from Cameron’s teachings) was I was more able to connect to myself through my core values, which transformed into new levels of connection with myself and my community, including my company. I did not have to try hard to influence others, it’s just that I connected to myself and dramatic change around me followed!  ”

MK, Company Director

“Cameron has offered me new paradigms that it's hard to believe were not previously visible to me, as they so quickly have supported more effective practices in so many areas of my life. As a parent, coach, trainer and community leader, I am better equipped to serve with the learning and insight that Cameron has helped provide.
If you get an opportunity to work with Cameron, take it. She has a remarkable gift as a teacher, healer and coach.

“Cameron helped me as i’ve navigated the challenges and opportunities of working in a new role, and like all workplaces, facing a time of change and transformation. Her heart centred approach has helped me find my own authentic leadership style and flow. What I love about Cameron’s work is the power of its simplicity. It’s clear, understandable, and you can very quickly and easily start integrating it into your personal and professional working life. ”
