Introducing the foundations of authentic Maori bodywork and healing. Connect to cultural knowledge and practice! Gain insight, rediscover your potential and experience personal transformation at this unique 2-day event! This workshop is for anyone; from beginner to practitioner.
Authentic Mirimiri is a powerful indigenous healing modality. This is often in contrast to the widely held misconception that it is merely another form of massage. Learn cultural concepts of health and wellbeing; including the importance of self-care. You will be given the tools and confidence to utilise Mirimiri not only as a form of healing for yourself and others, but as a way of life.
Jolie Davis is an established traditional practitioner and educator (formally a trained nurse) from Te Rarawa/Ngati Kuri. She is currently based in Kapiti where she works as a Kaimirimiri and Injury Specialist.
You will be immersed in the foundational concepts of Mirimiri and Romiromi. Many people experience their own personal healing and transformation during this time.
The workshop is also useful for people who work as counsellors, social workers, health workers and clinical practitioners looking to expand their cultural understanding and by doing so engage more effectively with Maori and whanau.
Suitable as an introduction for beginners, Kaimirimiri or established practitioners looking to develop their knowledge around the bodywork; so that you can begin working towards reclaiming wellness for yourself and for others. The Manawa Ora Workshops are currently delivered in NZ (Kapiti) and AU (Brisbane, Melbourne and Sydney)
