REN XUE Africa hosts Sylvie Jutras for two weekend Retreats

Read On for More Detail

Introducing Sylvie

Sylvie Jutras, a REN XUE teacher of many years and currently living in France, was validated by Yuan Tze a few years ago as having met the requirements for REN XUE’s Fourth Stage of Realisation and Wisdom.

This stage of inner cultivation involves ‘waking up from sleeping, regaining clarity, and seeing one’s ‘True Nature’ fully. The ‘True Nature’ is then liberated from its conditioned, patterned ‘persona’ and as the True Self, can fully manifest its clarity and wisdom. This transformation stage is commonly labelled ‘enlightenment’. In REN XUE this is not seen as an endpoint but the true beginning of life cultivation. Sylvie is well on this path and has much wisdom to share.

We are most fortunate to have Sylvie come to South Africa in March 2025, to lead two large Yuan Qigong retreats – one in Johannesburg, and one in Cape Town. Both South African and international students will welcome her wonderfully direct and clear teaching style over two days of Yuan Qigong immersion in these beautiful locations outside the main cities. Please save the following dates for the weekend retreat of your choice to deepen your understanding and Qigong practice. Further details to follow during 2024.
