As you will have seen from Martin's email the Mindfulness for Change team have been working on plans for our third get-together at Hui #3. As the weekend of 12-14 May 2017 at Waihoanga Retreat Centre works for nearly everyone we've confirmed that date and venue. We invite you to put this date in your calendars now.

The purpose, themes, content and further details of this next Hui will be shared with you as they evolve during our planning.

That the Mindfulness for Change Hui 3 be held at Waihōanga Centre for Well-being in Otaki from Friday 12 May to Sunday 14 May 2017.

Orange - I'm happy to leave this decision up to the group

Yes this will give us ample time to plan.
Also May is better than April as Easter and Anzac weekend will take many people away for a couple of weekends.

May may not be the best for camping but the site gives us some opportunities for a larger scale event

Have stayed there before and really liked it! More breakout spaces than Riverslea, and the yurt is a fantastic place to practice. That date in May is good, given they're only available then or Easter weekend out of all of April and May.

Awesome venue. But I most likely can't attend due to work that weekend.

I won't be able to make it unfortunately. I'll be leaving for Vietnam the following weekend. Enjoy!

I've been to a retreat at Waihōanga and really liked it as a venue. It's bigger than Riverslea with more inside and outside space. It has an amazing yurt surrounded by a stream that is a great place to sit together.

The cost to stay at Waihōanga is reasonable at $39 per person per night, $27.50 per person per night camping and $22.50 per day for day visitors (excluding catering, linen, cleaning).

To find out more about Waihōanga go to their website - http://www.waihoanga.co.nz/.

I read through the initial information they sent through and from reading what is said here it sounds like a great venue and good date!

Love this venue. Is there any more details we want? I'm going there tomorrow for a wedding.

Nothing in particular comes to mind, just a general scout out I guess! I emailed them last week to confirm the weekend in May, just so we didn't miss out. We can talk more on Friday :)

Doesn't look like I'll be able to attend this one, although my work commitment could change. I was a little confused by the double question in the proposal (can you come and do you like the venue). So don't take my disagree as a "change the date" plea, just an "oh bugger".

Bummer @paulmcgregor! Fingers crossed the work commitment changes to a different weekend!
