Kia ora Wangapeka whanau

We hope you are all safe and well.  Here’s our update on Covid—19 and how this is affecting our treasured Wangapeka Community and Centre.

Current situation in New Zealand:
As of Monday 23rd March the Government has raised the nationwide response to Level 3.  With the response moving to Level 4 on Wednesday 25th at 11.59pm  See the NZ Government website for more details: https://covid19.govt.nz/government-actions/covid-19-alert-system/

The Ministry of Health website has the latest updates showing confirmed cases and the latest  information https://www.health.govt.nz/

Wangapeka Visitors and Course Participants:

In line with Government directives, the Wangapeka Centre will be closed to all visitors and courses, until this situation changes.

Please do not visit the centre at all during this time.

There will be a community of stable residents, in self-isolation, caring for the centre during this Level-4 response.

The next retreat scheduled:  Energy Rides the Winds, with Bonni Ross, April 10th to May 8th will be run off-site for anyone who has supportive circumstances to practice at home.  Morning classes will be given by zoom.  A Donation to the Wangapeka Educational Trust will be necessary for participation.  To register please contact:  Kath Mitchell mitchell.kath@gmail.com

All courses, on-site, for at least the next seven weeks, are cancelled.  If you have registered for a course at Wangapeka, your course manager will keep you updated about any changes.  Refund details are below.

We will be resuming our teaching programme on-site as soon as it is safe to do so.

We look forward to staying in touch with you and keeping you up-to-date through this time, via our website, Newsphere Newsletter and Social Media Posts.

Cancellation Policy – Covid-19 Plan – March 23

There has been an update to our cancellation policy in light of the changing times with COVID-19. The Wangapeka is offering a full refund of your course fees, including the $100 deposit. However, there is also an option to donate the deposit to the Centre to help us get through these times. We realise that this will be a financially challenging time for everyone so we are happy for retreatants to choose what works best for them.
Thank you for your patience, understanding and support.

Take care everyone.
With Metta
The Board of Trustees.
