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 this space with the help of my BIPOC OFI colleagues for the Open Floor Teachers in Training. Our teacher training will never be the same again. To be in a space that is BIPOC centred in the concious movement field, felt radical and radiant!
Not just Māori ~ the global majority!!!! SPECIAL!!!!
I am here to continue this mahi, and nurture our souls as we go along.
So if you are a black, indigenous or person of colour who likes to dance/move,
who keeps a journal/likes to write,
would like to be surrounded and supported in a space of noho herekore - liberation.
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 for you to bring kai to share at the end.
Mauri aroha. Kaia
