Kia Ora to you ... Welcome to this virtual world :)
Cameron is my original family name which I claimed when my father passed away. This name connects me to my ancestors who farmed the land of Aotearoa - New Zealand. They were pioneers. Carrying this name reminds me to stay grounded, open to new possibilities, have FUN with life and keep things simple. Tukapua is my married Maori name and I am grateful to have this link to the indigenous people of this land. Tu means to "to stand" Kapua is "the clouds". Living between the worlds of nature and spirit has always felt natural to me. As I've evolved my life purpose has become clearer. The offering I bring to the world is guidance on how to live a grounded spiritual life.
Professional History For over 3 decades I have been a passionate practitioner and teacher of Chinese medicine and holistic philosophies. As part of this journey I started and directed the Christchurch College of Holistic Healing - a New Zealand Qualifications registered tertiary education provider.
In roles as professional development trainer, mindfulness teacher and retreat leader I've facilitated many groups in China, NZ, US Australia, UK - empowering people to know their deeper selves to help connect to a life of purpose and meaning.
In holistic healing we learn to engage with life as co-creators. We view ourselves as individual expressions of ONE universal energy. Seeing our connections to life and each other helps us to unfold our unique talents and gifts, and moderate the challenges.
In today's world we are in a phase of major upheaval with highly visible conflict as a vehicle for social transformation. Knowing our inter connectedness and seeing how to ride the waves of change, empowers us to play our part in transforming the world within us, and around us !
To offer healing support for many, a group of healing colleagues have created a global learning community via online home, www.youbeingyou.org We aim to uplift the hearts and minds of millions, empowering people with simple wisdom teachings and practices for anchoring in true nature. We welcome you to join our healing conversation. Learn Connect Heal and Share. Together we can change the world.
Opening Up Book
Opening Up is a story about how to create Heart based connections with ourselves and others. It explains how "life is energy" and offers everyday language for understanding how the natural world around us is mirrored by the functions and movements of energy within us.
Opening Up encourages healing conversation about how to bring our true self forward in life. The story was originally inspired by the Christchurch earthquakes and the collective Heart opening that happened in response to that time. Many of us witnessed how people from all traditions instinctively respond from the Heart when life is threatened. What if we chose to live that way all the time ? Imagine if many of us were deeply connected to our original nature which is open, lighthearted and free ? What a different world.
