Learn traditional practices of First Nations female wisdom

In the Western medical system, if you're sick, a doctor will give you a pill to get better. But Rongoa Maori, a traditional Maori healing practice, has a far more expansive view of the body. Ill health is addressed through a range of practices, like rakau rongoa (native flora herbal remedies), mirimiri (massage) and karakia (prayer).

Join the Te Kopere Maori Healers from the Wanganui area in Aoetearoa (New Zealand) for a session with traditional custodians of Rongoa Maori. This joyful workshop will encompass herbal remedies, massage therapies and dancing and singing rituals. Don't miss this incredible opportunity to access ancient Indigenous knowledge and learn about powerful techniques of spiritual and physical healing.
