About the Event

This space is for the expression of movement, kupu and korero. 

Again this is a BIPOC centred space, please respect this. 

Yes I am the pale skinned Māori from the city, and yes I am still Māori. 

I have felt the power of a BIPOC-centred movement space only once in my life, it was powerful, it was brave, tender and magick!  

I created that space with the help of my BIPOC OFI colleagues for the Open Floor Teachers in Training. To be held within BIPOC centred in the concious movement field, felt radical and radiant! 

Not just Māori ~ the global majority!!!! SPECIAL!!!!

So, I am here to continue this mahi, and nurture our souls as we go along. Liberation for our bodies and nourishment for our wairua.

So if you are a black, indigenous or person of colour who likes to dance/move, 

who keeps a journal/likes words, 

would like to be surrounded and supported in a space of noho herekore - liberation and expression. Where embodied inquiry gives space to access the intelligence of our bodies. 

The written word helps harvest and navigate our lives..And current climate.

Korero Mai ~ Korero Atu because your voice and mine have something to share.

To be witnessed, to be heard in a collective of humans ~ that get it!

And of course ~ Maramataka awareness to track and travel with our cycles. 

Sign up and register. 

This space will be held in my studio at Makahuri, 

For payment I ask for a koha and kai to share at the end. 

Mauri aroha. Kaia

Open to all genders.
