Details

I am a Tainui Maniapoto descendant from Hawaiki Nui Aotearoa, with ancestral ties to the first Maori Woman and our Earth Mother. I Facilitate Kaitiakitanga with te Taiao (environment) as Tangata whenua.

As Tangata Whenua, I share with you Ancestral knowledge of the Earth Goddess, as passed down to me by my Kaumatua (Maori Elders)

I was taught that the life principle or Mauri of the forest, tree or Water could be concentrated into a Clay stone or other object for protection. For this I use Karakia ( prayer ) And so we will be working with Clay to create an Earth Goddess ‘Mauri Stone’

The Mauri Stone is considered to be a symbolic spiritual foundation stone on which Kaitiakitanga will stand. It is representative of the past history of the land, the Mauri (life force) and the important work that will be conducted in it’s resting place of the future. 

We Maori protect people and places and prepare them to receive Mana.

Each attendee is encouraged to first go through a silent, whole-body, water purification plunge with a live water source prior and as close to arrival as possible, such as Te Moana (ocean) or Te Awa (river / creek) to strengthen the Mauri (life force energy) that bonds the spiritual and physical bodies (Our Celestial and Terrestrial Selves) as a single living entity. Permanently establishing inner peace and oneness of thought, purpose, blissful harmony and wellbeing. 

Healing ourselves, each other and our Earth mother. 

You are encouraged to bring your own Taonga ( treasure) if offered by the Earth Goddess, to fashion your Clay Earth Goddess.
