Annually - the first Sunday of the month in October.
It's Time for Humanity to Awaken to their True Self
In today’s society, almost everyone is leading a busy life full of commitments and responsibility. Every day is precious because it is unique and cannot be relived. And every day can be made valuable and meaningful through what we choose to do and be.
Special ‘Days’ of all kinds have been created to celebrate or remember something meaningful.
Today every individual and humanity as a whole are faced with one thing that is not only important but also urgent: AWAKENING.
Humanity is at a crossroads, and to create a better future we need to make the right choice about the direction humanity should take. Only if we are truly awake will this be possible.
For this reason, the Global Awakening Day has been created by Yuan Tze, a symbolic event to draw attention to this important topic share and it with all members of the human family.
The Global Awakening Day is on the first Sunday of October. It will be an event shared by all of the global REN XUE family. It is hoped that with time more and more people will join and make it a special day for the whole of humanity.
A message from Yuan Tze
The message from enlightened teacher Yuan Tze on why the world needs to wake up... now:
Let’s say goodbye to the false self and its ignorance, and welcome the True Self".
"Humanity has created and accumulated numerous problems, and some of them have become serious crises which are almost beyond the usual means human beings are able deal with them. This path we have taken is no longer able to provide a sustainable option. Where is a path that can promote the continual development of civilization? The only answer I can see is the immediate awakening of humanity."
"Most people want to be healthy, happy, experience a strong sense of wellbeing, and grow and make a contribution to the world. Seeking answers in the external world does not seem to get us closer to such a life. We need to wake up to the truth that all these treasures are within ourselves, and the best way to uncover them is to attain realization and wisdom. The moment that realization and wisdom manifest, we have it all."
"When will this ongoing cycle of life dominated by unhealthy patterns and loss come to an end? This cycle has probably been going longer than one thinks. So long in fact, that it makes sense that we don’t know what we don’t know. But the only way to end it is to wake up"
Yuan Tze explains why he has created Global Awakening Day:
"In the 365 days of a year, we can spare at least a day to focus on the work of knowing, facing, changing, and uplifting ourselves...."
"We can use this event to help more and more people awaken. Hopefully, they will start to understand the importance of attaining realization and even make an effort to work towards it..."
"When more and more people recognize the importance of realization and wisdom and make an effort to attain it, a collective consciousness, information and Qi field will start to form. When this field is strong enough, it will help establish a new value system and worldview which can truly support humanity to come back to a path of health and growth and for society to achieve true progress and harmony."
Transformation and dissolution in the True Self
Awakening has two meanings:
One is awakening to the reality that life is run by all kinds of unhealthy patterns and is lost in the confusion and problems caused by them. When the unhealthy patterns are transformed, and the problems are cleared, one will gain clarity. This experience can feel like waking up from a long sleep.
The other layer of meaning refers to the state after the True Self manifests. Being in a state of pure awareness is awakening in a true sense.
Global Awakening Day is a day for yourself, for you to do something meaningful that you probably have always wanted to.
You can use this special day to achieve unification—the unification of your own Jing, Qi and Shen and the unification of you, the world and the universe.
It is also a day for you to return to your heart.
From the most wonderful place in your heart, you can connect with everything and express your gratitude to nature, the universe, everything, and everyone.
You can also use this special day to envision what you would like to achieve in the year ahead and build the Qifield for it. Include your own growth and the work you aspire to do to help others and the world.
You can also use this special time to generously dedicate your best wishes for humanity and the world, from the very bottom of your heart
You can make today the most special day of your life. A day that you can dedicate your life to the benefit of the world.
Although we cannot rely on one special day to attain complete realization and wisdom, we can make a good start.
From this day on, if you wish, every day can be used for the same purpose. I have every reason to believe that when we are on this path filled with determination and sincerity, we can expect to continually attain realization and wisdom.
If more people participate, the world will be so much more hopeful and the future will be bright.
Suggested instructions from Yuan Tze
Let’s get ready for the ritual. Gently close your eyes and enter a relaxed, calm, natural, unified, and harmonious state. Let’s use the Six Verses to build a powerful Qifield. Feel the inside and outside of your body. Feel the world that constantly provides you rich nourishment and infinite strength.
Awareness inside the body, feel the emptiness and spaciousness within.
Expand this awareness out, becoming one with the universe.
Draw the awareness back to the body, calm and peaceful.
Open to the universe with reverence and utmost Gongjing.
Let the bright universe nurture the heart with compassion and love.
Feel relaxed, free and joyful, Qi flowing harmoniously and smoothly.
Now come back to your heart. From the deepest place inside yourself, feel the Kai Xin Verse with utmost sincerity.
Heaven, Earth and Human are all teachers with infinite wisdom;
I open my Xin Men to trust and love them unconditionally;
With gratitude in my heart, I receive the bright light of their love and wisdom and unify with it;
My Shen, Yi and Xin are fully aligned with the light of Dao;
With Gongjing, realization and wisdom are arising;
I am one with the light of the wisdom of the universe.
I feel a strong connection with myself, with all my fellow REN XUE practitioners and with the whole of humanity. I am one with the universe. I am the universe. The universe is me.
From the deepest place in my heart, I feel gratitude arising. I feel grateful to the universe, to all lives in the universe, to all members of the human family, to all my family members, to all the people who are special to me.
I am grateful to myself and all that I have experienced in life. I feel gratitude for everything! I am ready now.
From the bottom of my heart I feel determination and strength. I want to return to the inner space my life belongs to: the beautiful world of my Xin Ling.
All the wonderful qualities of my Xin Ling, including trust, openness, love, gratitude and Gongjing will manifest themselves unconditionally. They will always be with me.
I am determined to do everything I can to help myself return to my True Self so it can manifest and continue to develop realization and wisdom.
The bright light of realization and wisdom will lead my life forward on the broad, bright path of Zi Du Du Ren. Deep inside myself, I feel oneness.
I am one with all forms of life, all the people and everything in this world. We are all connected as one. We depend on one another, and we share the same destiny. We are all equal and part of the totality.
I am connected with everyone. From the bottom of my heart, I wish that eventually, everybody will awaken.
Let us say goodbye to the false self and its ignorance and allow the True Self to manifest. Let’s all live a new life and enjoy true freedom.
Let the world be devoid of more pain and suffering and may the acts of self-harming and harming each other come to an end. Let’s hold hands and show our love and care for one another.
Let’s help one another and walk together on the path towards health, happiness, wellbeing, realization and wisdom.
From the bottom of my heart, I wish that the world be devoid of greed, ugliness, brutality and ignorance.
Let’s all wake up and create a harmonious, beautiful world that is filled with unconditional love, selfless giving, hope and bright light.
Keep yourself in a unified and harmonious state. From the bottom of your heart, express to the world and universe what you would like to achieve with your life in the year ahead. (Leave 2-3 minutes for this.)
I am ready.
All of this will begin with me, and my actions from this very moment.
Draw all the positive information back to yourself and store it in the innermost part of your being, in your heart, consciousness and Shen, so it now becomes part of your life.
Gently open your eyes. Welcome and embrace the world in front of you, the world that is changing and improving all the time. Gratitude to everything and everyone!
Your heart, or Xin in Chinese, is the key to unlocking your True Self. When your True Self is freed and becomes functional, its wisdom will dissolve most of your unhealthy patterns and a new life will emerge.
In REN XUE, the consistent manifestation of True Self is the phenomenon of ‘enlightenment’. This is how important your heart is! And this is why the heart is the focus of our work in REN XUE.
The True Self is unable to function and manifest its realization and wisdom because the patterns of the consciousness have taken over and function on behalf of the True Self.It is as though the True Self has been locked away by all the patterns.
The heart is able to unlock the True Self because it has a special connection with it. However, to do so, the heart needs to be in its natural state.
What is the natural state of the heart?
It is the original pure, healthy state with the presence all the innate qualities of the heart, including the five essential qualities (five Xin) – trust, openness, love, gratitude and Gongjing (true respect).
When in this state, the heart can bypass the patterns of the consciousness and reach the True Self directly.
Born in China, Yuan Tze developed REN XUE and its disciplines after spending more than a decade in the west. REN XUE combines the best of both worlds. It draws from Yuan Tze’s profound knowledge of traditional Chinese wisdom culture including Daoism, Confucianism, Qigong, Buddhism, Traditional Chinese Medicine, I-Ching philosophy, Feng Shui, Taiji, Bagua and martial arts, and also his familiarity with the latest developments in modern philosophy, science, medicine and technology.
The global REN XUE community fosters shared learning and growth through numerous classes, workshops, retreats and on-line events. Above all, the community helps us develop our sense of purpose and share the joy of working towards a higher level of personal and collective wellbeing.

"Every human being can find their way home, because when we return to our true home (our heart), then we become bright. We can brighten up our own life as well as others. This is how a truly harmonious world, a world which is even more wonderful than heaven, can become a reality. "
"I see a bright path. This depends on every member of humanity to create. Every person is a creator of the future of humanity."

Allowing everyone to find peace within and without
REN XUE helps develop the creative capabilities and wisdom needed to survive and thrive in an increasingly tumultuous world.
As technology, environmental changes and geo-political forces push us toward a new and challenging reality, wisdom - based on an understanding of the laws of the universe - provides a base from which we can creatively adapt, calmly manage our lives and positively affect the lives of others.
Yuan Qigong is REN XUE’s practice of movements, postures and breathing designed to help us live more creative, adaptive lives in today’s challenging world.
REN XUE helps us find inner harmony through practices that elevate both body and mind. REN XUE also helps us find outer harmony – in our personal relationships, with society, and with nature.
REN XUE’s main disciplines are Yuan Qigong and Yuan Ming.
Yuan Qigong – a way to health, self-realization and wisdom. A type of Qigong that offers still and moving meditations – Yuan Qigong is easy to learn, safe and very effective. It reduces stress and focuses the mind. When used consistently, a practitioner can experience true inner freedom and happiness.
Whereas Yuan Qigong is a discipline for working on ourselves, Yuan Ming techniques are a discipline for helping others. It offers healing techniques that can diminish the effects of injury and illness.
Both disciplines share the fundamental goals of greater health, happiness, sense of wellbeing and growth. Both provide a foundation for a good and meaningful future.
