About the Event

I will say this first so you know if you need to carry on reading. 

This is a six week closed group ongoing. 

To be part of this wānanga series, you must be committed (to the best of your abilities) to be here for the series. 

The magick and depth that is created in a close group is something I find hard to define in words. 

What I can say is that there is a level of safety and resting that happens when you know who is going to be on the dance floor with you. We begin to know each other in a way, non-verbal and verbal, creating a container, a weave that builds strength, support, and presence like no other. Our nervous systems settle collectively. Our dance floor expands. We all have space in this circle.

If you are called to be part of such a dance floor, this is my karanga (my call, my invitation) to you. 

Wednesday Night Winter Wānanga Series 

You all know Matariki is our 'New Year', but it is not just a celebration.

It is an acknowledgment of the year past, of those who have passed over, 

and a place to make sure our harvest is safe and our stories. 

For this six-week series, we create the time to explore our embodiment in this season of transition. 

We spend time with our personal transitions as we come to the end of the cycle of our year.

What have we brought to our Pataka (storehouses) that will nourish and sustain us over these cooler months? 

We have to be mindful that what we have brought in from the harvest will not rot over winter and contaminate all that surrounds it. 

This matters not just for our food harvest but for the harvest for our lives.

Our circle of care and our circle of capacity. 

Where do you need to be focusing your attention in your life? What matters?

For many, this may be the first time you have dedicated space in your life to honour this season. 

It is a time to deep dive. 

We have been given so much over the past year to be witness to in ourselves and in others. 

Much has risen to the surface that requires acknowledgment and letting go. 

Much that has blossomed whose seeds now need to be nourished to grow in strenght.

Let me be a space holder and a facilitatior for you diring this time. 

Let the Open Floor curriculum resource you for the time ahead. 

Let us be guided by this maramataka, this season of the year, and be witness to the journey of our lives. 

In deep gratitude for all that Te Ao Māori lends us as we exist here in Aotearoa.
