Mauri Ora Mauri Aroha
This is the dance of living to our fullness, weaving together elements of Mana Atua, Mana Whenua, Mana Tangata to remember our interconnectivity with all beings.
We are here at Earth Beat to help redesign the fabric of our community’s so we can live with Mauri Aroha.
To get there we must find our ora, our wellness, our collective fuckn joy in all that is happening in this world and love. Yes that may sound cheesy but it is the truth, let us not turn away from each other but instead weave together, more fuller, more supported than ever before. Join me on this floor in this dance of living.
ALIVE ALIVE ALIVE.
Turn up on time for our collective karakia, and then we begin.
Inclusive to all humans. This wānanga is the second workshop out of two if you want the fullness of it all please join me for my first workshop Mauri Tū Mauri Tau x
