The foundations of MIRIMIRI and ROMIROMI - authentic Maori bodywork and healing - SYDNEY
Connect to cultural knowledge and practice. Be immersed in Maori tradition, gain insight, rediscover your potential and experience personal transformation at this unique 2-day event! This workshop is for anyone; whether you are a total beginner or practitioner, Maori or non-Maori, just curious or wanting to expand your knowledge base, this will be an amazing experience you won't forget!
Our Venue is the Coastal Environmental Centre, North Narabeen, NSW.
Authentic Mirimiri is a powerful indigenous healing modality. This is often in contrast to the widely held misconception that it is merely another form of massage. Learn cultural concepts of health and wellbeing; including the importance of self-care. You will be given the tools and confidence to utilise Mirimiri not only as a form of healing for yourself and others, but as a way of life.
Jolie Davis is an established traditional practitioner and educator from Te Rarawa/Ngati Kuri iwi, Currently based in Wellington, NZ.
You will be immersed in the foundational concepts of Mirimiri and Romiromi, such as floorwork, Haemata (pressure points), Whatumanawa (intuitive guidance) and use of the natural environment (Papatuanuku); traditional tools such as Rakau (sticks), Kohatu (stones), waiata (song), takutaku (traditional chant or prayer). Many people experience their own personal healing, breakthroughs and/or transformation during this time.
The workshop is also useful for people who work as counsellors, social workers, health workers and clinical practitioners looking to expand their cultural understanding and by doing so engage more effectively with Maori, whanau and whai ora.
Suitable as an introduction for beginners, or established Kaimirimiri/ practitioners looking to develop their knowledge around the bodywork; so that you can begin working authentically towards reclaiming wellness for yourself and others.
