E ngā waka, e ngā mana, e ngā karangatanga maha huri noa i te motu nei te mihi atu ki a koutou katoa!

Tenā koutou, tenā koutou, tenā koutou katoa.  Poutama seminars are interactive hui intended to provide learning steps that embrace Māori knowledge and promote Māori Health; offering excellent professional development opportunities for anyone wishing to expand their knowledge of indigenous models of psychotherapy/counselling.

Two esteemed Wāhine Māori will present on the theme of indigenous healing.

Dr Maria Baker, CEO Te Rau Ora – Ngāpuhi, Te Rarawa.  Maria trained as a registered nurse in the 1990’s, and brings a 20 year history in Māori mental health (adult), added to by her doctorate research in Māori experience of mental illness and mental health services. She is a graduate of grassroots, Māori communities and NGO’s with a passion and drive to strengthen whānau, hapū and Iwi.  Maria will speak about the work of Te Rau Ora (originally Te Rau Matatini) Aotearoa’s indigenous Māori organisation committed to the mental health and addictions sector and to providing a range of local and national programmes to improve Māori health and wellbeing.

Hinewirangi Kohu Morgan – Ngāti Porou, Ngāti Kahungunu, Tauranga Moana.  Hinewirangi is a kuia who teaches Māori tikanga and kawa, an artist, a poet, a carver, a healer and tohunga of Māori protocol and practise.  She has the unique talent of blending traditional Māori concepts into present day practise, highlighting the importance of the gifts left by our tūpuna.  You will be guided through traditional waiata Māori (song) and its many forms and uses within te aō Māori practise.  Hinewirangi will also introduce a number of traditional tāonga puoro (Māori instruments) demonstrating how these are utilised and played. Through the use of these traditional forms Hinewirangi demonstrates the deeper concept of “Singing the Soul back into Being”.
