2020 Community Hui – Who Are We, Here?
Who Are We, Here?
“This body of ours is conditioned by families and societies, by thoughts and dreams …”
Living in a time of global upheaval can deeply affect our inner worlds and raise questions that call us beyond habitual patterns of relationship and action.
What does it mean to recognise and acknowledge the historical wounds that have shaped our society? How can we hold this alongside aspirations for transformation and healing? How might we approach this work together as a sangha, stepping into spaces of challenging learning, with wisdom and compassion as our lamp and staff?
As a Wangapeka community, we cultivate skills passed down through an ancient lineage that help us navigate the complexity of our daily lives. The colonial history of Aotearoa raises particular questions of identity, power, and relationship to place. This year’s hui is a chance for enquiry into these questions, embracing the diversity of experiences and perspectives within our circle.
It is our intention that the hui open an empowering, heart-led space for investigating the ancestral lines and multiple histories that have led us to this moment. Through this wholesome intention, we hope to explore what it means to be good ancestors and lineage holders in Aotearoa. We look forward to your presence in the circle –
Dan, Willow, Hadleigh, Elli and Rowan.

Nominations for Board of Trustees
At the AGM, members are elected to the Trust Board. Nominations can be sent to the secretary Tim Leyland firstname.lastname@example.org or can be made at the AGM itself. The nominees, movers and seconders all need to be financial members.
New members wanted for Board of Trustees
Please consider going on to the Board of Trustees. This is also dana; offering your time to attend the monthly Trust Board meetings in person or on Zoom. Engaging with the other Trust Board members in this way is always a good and worthwhile experience. While the Board would benefit from some new faces at Trust Board meetings, it would also really like someone to take on the position of Treasurer. While Pierre Mitchell continues to do a great job looking after our financial wellbeing, he would be very happy to give advice and help anyone new easing into this role.
