Course Description

Have you ever considered how you live in the story in your head, and life is your own creation? 

Did you know that as the author of your life, all experiences upgrade by transforming Self perceptions? 

Interesting Fact: Only 1% of people are naturally reflective learners ? No wonder life can be challenging when we haven't learned the skill of self-reflection to course correct, and mindfully steer our lives.

Imagine how good it would feel to consciously engage the best of yourself and others. Imagine living in open kind-hearted relationships with people you care about. Join us to discover and practice HOW.


Intention: Thinking Upgrade & Practices

The intention of these Wellbeing courses is to move from description of where we are challenged, into prescriptions for living awake and aware. We learn to bring out the best of ourselves and others and how to nurture open real relationships.

Across 3 months, following the  7 steps we introduce empowerment tools and a thinking upgrade, to help us find our happy place and open to flow. To embody this alignment we practice medical Qigong, meditation and Yoga, to reset and enliven inner energies. 

Three Phase Learning

1. The Interactive group process, explores the 7 steps through facilitated sharing. The powerful process of our communal mirror reveals how and where, we are growing and changing. 

2. For self paced learning, watch  the online videos with prescribed mind-body practices for each of the 7 steps.

3. To integrate and deepen personal insights, each fortnight you receive individual coaching sessions with Cameron/course facilitator

Cameron Tukapua

B Ac, Chinese Medicine Practitioner, Visionary, Leader

Lucky for me I stumbled upon the path of Chinese medicine at age 21 which literally saved my life. From Day One we were shown how to see ourselves as parts of nature and how each of us has a ‘natural way of being in the world’. As a Farmers daughter the nature based philosophy made perfect sense to me, of course life is powered by energy! Fast forward nearly 4 decades of integration including; ongoing clinical acupuncture practice, meditation, Yoga, teaching/owning an Acupuncture College, a decade leading Wellbeing retreats in China, New Zealand, Bali, Australia. Education, empowering people to know and help themselves is core to my practice.. To me, learning Mind-body ABC is as basic and obvious as having a driving license for your car. Balancing our energy, being our true Self and accessing our inner courage transforms our lives and our world! I co-created YBY to give people easy access to wisdom teachings of the ages, and practical pathways to lifelong wellbeing. Growing up in the 1960’s and 70’s I experienced a life of relative freedom and truth. Now here we are in the 2020’s and things are pretty messed up. I feel deeply for younger people who have inherited this strange modern world. Thankfully some of the weird systems and unconsciously accepted ways of relating, are now being openly challenged! We can no longer pretend widespread expressions of ‘power over others’, are OK. It’s time for a world of ‘power with’. As complex as our problems seem to be, the solutions are surprisingly simple. This is where YBY comes in, offering practical guidance on re-aligning with what is good, true and beautiful. We introduce new/old ways of being, nurturing self-care and mutual empowerment. We encourage genuine connection and heartfelt sharing as a powerful path to healing.
