Te Ira Tangata Programme

Whakahokia mai te mana o te wahine ki te ūkaipō i Kurawaka

As a frontline Health Service Provider always working tirelessly and constantly dedicated to caring for others’ needs  –  you can lose sight of your own needs and the stability to endure!

Weaving tikanga wāhine strands from the storehouse of Te Ira Tangata is the focus of this wānanga.  Your participation will enliven potentiality and leadership in oneself to seamlessly Illuminate optimism, mindfulness and rigour to foster an awareness and compassion for people, their health and well-being in homes, on the marae and at work!  So, grab yourself a coffee, kick off your shoes, pull up a chair and relax to the melodious collaboration of amazing wāhine māori sharing their stories of mātauranga wahine from the comforts of their homes. These stories encapsulate the potency of ancestral knowledge in lived experiences to restore the health and wellbeing of uri, whānau, hapū, iwi and communities.
