Friendship Force: Travel & Home Hosting Group

The Friendship Force is not a travel club although the core activity is travelling in groups, to stay with like-minded people in other countries (a cultural journey).

The first priority is to develop friendships and through this to generate understanding across cultural boundaries.

  • Unique travel experiences focused on friendships.
  • Hosting interesting people from around the world.
  • Participating in community activities that promote lasting friendships.

Meetings are held twice monthly:

1st Thursday of the month 10am-12pm at Nourish Cafe Te Puna
3rd Sunday of the month 7pm-9pm at Omokoroa Settlers’ Hall

Tai Chi Internal Arts – Te Puna

Tai Chi Internal Arts has been operating for two years at Te Puke & Tauranga with Beginner and Regular classes and now Te Puna.
Post Covid19 we are restarting with an emphasis on looking after ourselves. What this means is as well as the Tai Chi training, we will encourage the students to apply the principles of Tai Chi to everyday life and incorporate mindfulness, balance and the ability to deal with change. We seem to be in a time of rapid change which can create enormous personal stress.

Tai Chi Internal Arts is affiliated to Sport BOP so we offer training to all comers and in particular the Keep on your Feet Program which encourages the senior students to stay active. Tai Chi is valuable because as well as keeping the body fit, it also requires a fair bit of mental activity all the while staying very low impact.
