About the Event
During our wānanga we will take our cues from the nature around us, the weather patterns, the tidal expression and the maramataka.
To exist within nature and to move in a way that resonates deeply with you and all we exist within.
We find conductors to help us carry a pulse between you and the natural world
~ using what nature wishes to share
~ creating a tāonga puoro and becoming part of the song ~ Aotearoa.
~ Mana in motion for all beings, interconnected.
I would like for us not to push against nature for this weekend but instead to move within.
Bring all weather clothes, be prepared to be outside and let nature capture your attention.
It is the time of Beltane where the life force of the land rises.
You see it everywhere you look, and lucky for us ~ we get to dance and create within it all.
It is the time of spring and the fullness of life is rising in whenua and tinana!
Te kanikani te Taiao is a workshop that brings us closer in connection with our nature within nature.
We go outside, we get wet, we sit on the earth, and we take time to notice > more that the human expression,
we take time to notice the natural expression of this earth around us.
This action of witnessing inspires our movement, refreshes our expression and gives space for the koha back.
