Kia ora neighbours, Who isn't keen to put 107 days of Covid-19 Alert Level 3 and 4 behind us? But there are some important lessons to remember as we move on. Read the story below?
The regions which will be moving into the new Covid-19 Protection Framework at Red on Friday have been announced.
Northland, Auckland, Taupō and Rotorua Lakes Districts, Kawerau, Whakatane, Ōpōtiki Districts, Gisborne District, Wairoa District, Rangitikei, Whanganui and Ruapehu Districts will all move to Red. The rest of the North Island and all of the South Island will move into Orange. These settings will next be reviewed on 13 December.
The existing Auckland boundary will remain in place until 17 January, and no new travel restrictions will be put in place. Vaccine passes will also come into force with the traffic light system.
Find out more about the new traffic light settings by region on this interactive map.
Interested in meditation? Whether a learner or seeking the company of a like-minded group to practice with, you’re warmly invited to our drop-in, free weekend park meetings. We’re currently offering meditation courses in our Auckland parklands on Sunday mornings at 10am. These share a range of different meditation skills and guided exercises and introduce the ABC’s in helping you with your own developing practice. A popular aspect is the use of simple mantras along with harmonium accompaniment.
If you’re keen on joining in, contact us (see below) and we’ll be in touch with times and venue details. Sunday’s next session, December 5th will be at the Auckland Domain, meeting at 10:00am by the band rotunda off Domain Drive. Bring a mat to sit on the grass, or a meditation stool. Weather permitting, our coming Sunday will offer a one hour session covering a wide canvas of exercises along with q & a opportunities and some refreshments afterwards. No charge, all welcome.
Numbers are limited with current Covid restrictions, (25) so signing up is required.
