About this Waananga

This waananga is to introduce and awaken you to the philosophies and practices of Whare Wānanga Lore and Traditional Māori Healing.

This 5 day foundational course will cover the dynamics of Takutaku, Kaupare and Whatumanawa, Mirimiri and Romiromi . The awareness and importance of self reflection and healing. This Waananga builds the foundation in order to enter these sacred healing realms.


The 5 days together is about developing spiritual awareness and the importance of spiritual safety for both the practitioner and the client. It will provide you with the tools to understand, navigate and stimulate your spiritual growth and consciousness not only within the mahi of Mirimiri/Romiromi but also within your everyday life.

You will learn: 

  • A basic Romiromi bodywork alignment and have the opportunity to build your skills and confidence over our days together.

  • Puurākau stories of Nga Atua and Māori esoteric Wisdoms.

  • The Whakapapa of energy and how it flows.

  • How energy becomes infused within the kaupapa of Mirimiri and Romiromi.

  • The physicality of energy - how it is sourced, how it’s channelled and how it is absorbed from the kaimahi (practicioner) through to the whaiora (client).

  • Understanding the energies doing the mahi (work), the intentions that go into doing what we do and the application and how it applies.

  • Accessing the Whatumanawa (spiritual heart/third eye), strengthening our own connection to self and intuition to enhance healing.

These 5 days provide a foundational of level one crossing into level two, where the physicalisation and transition from Mirimiri into Romiromi is enhanced.

This waananga will provide you with the tools you need to reflect in self healing and practice safely when working with whaiora, Wairua, Tīpuna and Kaitiaki whether that be in Mirmiri and Romiromi or your daily life and interactions.

The philosophies are taught and translated in Te Reo Māori, English and Dutch. You do not need to have any prior understandings of the Māori language.
