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; whether you are a beginner or experienced practitioner.
Authentic Mirimiri/Romiromi is a powerful indigenous healing modality. This is often in contrast to the widely held misconception that it is merely another form of massage. Be immersed in the cultural concepts and foundational philosophies of health and wellbeing that underpin the traditional practice of Mirimiri/Romiromi; including the importance of self-care. You will be given the tools and confidence to utilise Mirimiri and Romiromi not only as a form of healing for yourself and others, but as a way of life. Many people experience their own personal healing and transformation during this workshop.
Jolie Davis is an established traditional practitioner and educator (formally a trained nurse) from Te Rarawa/Ngati Kuri. She is currently based in Lower Hutt, Wellington where she works from her home-based clinic.
The Manawa Ora workshop is recommended as a training option for staff and employees; ie; counsellors, social workers, health workers, teachers and clinical practitioners looking to expand their cultural understanding and by doing so engage more effectively with Maori and whānau. Talk to your employer or organisation about supporting your attendance for the purpose of professional development.
This workshop is suitable as an introduction for total beginners (you don't need any experience), Kaimirimiri or established practitioners looking to develop their knowledge around the bodywork; so that you can begin working towards reclaiming wellness for yourself, your whanau and your community. The Manawa Ora Workshops are currently delivered in Lower Hutt, Wellington, Upper Hutt and Christchurch.
