Traditional Maori Healing

4 Jan, 2019 - 17 Jan, 2019

We invite you to embark on a sacred 12 day journey of spiritual learning and healing that will take you from Auckland to the beautiful Bay of Islands and beyond. You will pass through sacred sites, learn ancient rituals, stay on a marae and immerse yourself in a spiritual journey of learning and healing like no other.

Join our journey and forge your pathway with our exceptional Maori Healing Course – “Te Ahi Kōmau – The sacred fires”
In the eternal embers of ancient Maori wisdom, we ignite the sacred flame within.

Journey with us !!
The quest begins at Auckland’s beautiful Kawai Purapura retreat centre (New Zealand). Here you will partake in a Powhiri (welcoming ceremony) then 5 days travel to the north of NZ to visit sacred sites including Kai iwi lakes, Tane Mahuta and Ngawha springs. You will stay at a local marae where you will learn marae protocol. You will be led on spiritual journeys through our ancient forests. You will learn ancient chants and incantations, karakia (prayers) and waiata,(songs) as well as developing an understanding of and the practice of traditional Maori movement before returning to Auckland for much more.

Personal development
Throughout you will be working towards a Level 1 and Level 2 certification in the ancient Maori healing of Mirimiri and Romiromi. You will see, hear, and work with tutors that will give you a better understanding of traditional Maori Philosophies, and indigenous ways of healing that will stay with you forever.

Te Ahi Komau – The Sacred Fire
Te Ahi Komau represents the internal flame that sparks initiation, activation, re-birth.
This flame, this pulse has been imbued since time immemorial within us and all of creation.
When fire meets the other elements that’s when the sparks activate.
Using ancient techniques and philosophies to create the fires – Its about the sparks beginning to ignite.

The Tāmaki Makaurau Level Two Bodywork Mirimiri Romiromi Practitioner Wānanga covers the following aspects:

– The introduction into bodywork.
– The whakapapa of energy, it’s flows.
– How energy becomes infused within the kaupapa of Mirimiri and Romiromi.
– The physicality of energy – how it is sourced, how it’s channelled and how it’s absorbed from the kaimahi (practioner) through to the whaiora.(client)
– Why we do it, how we do it, when we do it and can we do it.
– Understanding the energies doing the mahi, the intentions that go into doing what we do and the application and how it applies.

This is where the theory and foundations of level one cross over to level two, where the actualisation and kaupapa of Mirimiri and Romiromi begins.
