Maori Healing Course.jpg

6. - 13. April 2024

Extremely grateful to share the news that Maori Ruatau, and Hana May Liv from Aotearoa are coming back to Kura Waka to share Traditional Romiromi Mirimiri healing Bodywork Courses!

From the Tuupuna maatua the ancients, began the healing practices that have flourished over the miliniums and these ideologies have been past down as living tools through tribal knowledge, to family knowledge some are closer to the sea others inland, and those in forests, on mountains, why the knowledge changes and so too do the roles.

Where deep tissue bodywork is required romiromi is activated. To Romi is To work (internals; organs,blood,tissue,muscles etc.) Mi is to stimulate te Ha (Breath) within the body to move the obstacles created. Both of these modalities are symbiotic, they live and play hand in hand. He aha Te Rongomau – What is Healing When you are able to hear the universe sing their songs of pain, and hear your own recovery.

Miri Miri:
Miri Miri a context of healing that does not always involve touch. It’s perceptive in it’s delivery, intuitive, in it’s knowing and powerful when one allows it to permeate the body.
When you are able to hear the universe sing their songs of pain, and hear your own road to recovery. As you will all have already been in Waananga* before we will be flowing between taha wairua and the physical bodywork. We will delve deeper into the healing energies within Pāpatuanuku.

Using the vibrations and the emotive sounds that come through Pāpatuanuku and the Cosmic skin. Moving beyond a basic romiromi alignment and covering more specialised parts of the body and the physical, emotional and spiritual associations to injury and dis-ease.

​We will be delving into te reo - the energies and frequencies of vibration, you will learn how to harness and tap into energy and vibration to enhance your healing space and environment.

Environmental healing - tapping into and using the Mauri of the environment to help facilitate what you're trying to shift with your whaiora, so you are working in unison with the space and the land so you are not trying to create the energy yourself but assimilating to what nature offers.

Another kaupare will be shared along with tools of how to expand your own energy, for your own daily life or mahi - this way you are not depleting your own energy sources.

An emphasis on building stronger connection to your Whatumanawa to awaken and build stronger connection to Nga Atua, Tūpuna and yourself and shifting energies with your Whatumanawa.

During this waananga we will go on a physical and metaphysical journey together - be it deepening your practice as a kairomi/kaimiri/practitioner or your own inner healing journey.

​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.

*To attend this waananga you would have at least completed our Level 1, as the minimum requirement.
