Mauri Ora… is a vision of human well-being from a Maori perspective.
Our philosophy underpins a global holistic belief…to heal someone, is to heal the whole person. From the basis of this philosophy, I provide a professional effective service that assists those that are ready to re discover wellbeing, by moving through a process of Mauri Moe (unconscious state), Mauri Oho, (proactive state), and rediscovery of… Mauri Ora (state of wellbeing). It is derived from the belief that all people are connected to a centre, yet unique, the very aspect that gives us meaning and drives our pure intent. It is the vehicle that drives our ability to love and care for ourselves and our families, to develop creative solutions in all aspects of our life, the very essence that gives us purpose, conviction, and motivation.
We become stuck in a negative cycle. This could be due to being unwell, grieving, fearfulness. Feelings of helplessness have an accumulative effect on our wellbeing. It will be the catalyst that erodes your “spark,” your “essence” of life. The coping mechanisms that we use and the armour that we wear, that has propped us up, has now become the very thing that entraps us.
The first step of healing is understanding that a journey needs to take place, one cannot remain in a place of Mauri Moe. There is a need for the pursuit of Mauri (life force energy) which moves from the centre outwards, in search for positive connections, relationships and knowledge, it stimulates all things, creates “order out of disorder” and shows a sureness of touch that stems from inner clarity, conscious pursuit of Mauri ora. Mauri Oho… For many this takes a great deal of personal courage, for some, a leap of faith into the unknown.
Therefore when facing your fears a great deal of courage is required, which in turn develops into greater inner strength, sense of self and ability to self-construct Mauri oho. As we reconstruct this phase our new found knowledge and conviction for wellbeing drives us to “Mauri Ora”
