12 day residential journey traveling through ancient Maori landmarks in New Zealand’s beautiful North Island.

Embark on a sacred 12 day journey of spiritual learning and healing that will take you from Auckland to the beautiful west Coast of NZ and beyond. You will pass through sacred Maori sites, learn ancient native rituals, live among local Maori communities 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 called Paptuanuku – the journey”

The quest begins at Auckland’s Kawai Purapura retreat centre (New Zealand). Here you will partake in a Powhiri (welcoming ceremony) then 3 days travel to central NZ to visit ancient sacred sites, meeting local communities and staying at Te kauri marae where you will learn marae protocol. You will be led on spiritual journeys through our ancient forests where you will learn ancient chants, karakias (prayers) and waiatas,(songs) as well undertaking traditional Maori bird dances before returning to Auckland for much more.

This is the first of a three level certification course as a Mirimiri & Romiromi Practitioner. This course will provide you with the tools you need to practice safely and take care of yourselves and your whānau ( family) when working with wairua ( Spirit), tupuna ( ancestors) and kaitiaki.(gaurdians)

This certification workshop will introduce students to the philosophies and practices of Traditional Māori Healing and Whare Wānanga Lore. This foundation course will cover the dynamics of karakia, takutaku, kaupare and whatumanawa. The philosophies are delivered in both Te Reo Māori and English.

Level One is about developing spiritual awareness, the importance of safety for both the practitioner and the client. It will provide you with the tools to understand, navigate and stimulate your spiritual growth and consciousness not only within the mahi (work) of Mirimiri/Romiromi but also in our everyday lives.

12 DAYS COURSE | Level 1 & 2 Certificate
Arrive: After lunch – 2pm the 4th of January

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.
