New Zealand

Parehuia Mafi and Erin Lewis are from Aotearoa, New Zealand, and have created an organisation, Te Kawa Whaiora Trust. Translation : The natural laws of wellbeing. Their lives are dedicated to Te Kawa Whaiora, and it is the voyaging vessel they have constructed collectively to undertake the Love Revolution. The vessel is carried by a current of hopes and dreams for humanity, and powered by ancestral love, towards a shore where the grandchildren are standing with open arms to receive the gifts of a future full of abundance and potential.

Parehuia is an indigenous woman to Aotearoa, who is dedicated to the practise of Systemic Constellation within tribes and communities across NZ, and the world.  She is a mother of twins, a boy and a girl who have her heritage from Aotearoa and Tongan ancestry from their Tongan papa. The Constellation practice was passed on to her by her late mother, who was a practitioner of the work.  This legacy has led to the establishment of a New Zealand, Aotearoa, Constellation movement and organisation dedicated to Mana Motuhake.

Erin Lewis is of European descent, Pakeha, and is married to an indigenous, Ngati Porou man, together they have three adult daughters. She is a Systemic Constellation Facilitator and trainer of Constellation Facilitators in NZ, and also the author of “The Love Revolution, a meditation journey to self love”. Erin also has many years experience as a yoga teacher, and a trauma practitioner, and is passionate about helping others release the trauma they hold

 

Workshop Title: Belonging and MANA MOYUHAKE. “Where do ‘I’ belong?” (with Erin Lewis)

Mana Motuhake comes from the Ancients of the land of Aotearoa, New Zealand (NZ), who gave voice and name to the phenomena of being and connecting to place.  “I am. I am of Sky Father above, Earth Mother below, water, air, and all living beings are our brothers and sisters.”

In the 21st century ‘Mana Motuhake’ has become a call of liberation and the commitment to freedom, connection and belonging to Source and place. Now, more than ever in NZ, and indeed the world, we are faced with the stark reality that comes with the ‘spiritual divide’ that exists and manifests as loss of Self. The recent legacy of Colonisation in our country, brings us face to face with this question daily as our people ask, “Who am I, and where do I belong?”

A new level of consciousness is emerging, as humans seek new (knew) systems to belong to.  We live in a world that is disintegrating, the old systems are unable to continue as new mental and social systems are emerging. There are three great divides which face humanity. Ecological, environmental destruction and the loss of natural resources; social, with poverty and wealth growing, and technology bringing us both connection and isolation; and spiritual, with the movement away from oppression to personal sovereignty. The challenge is to cross the divide, from the old systems to the new systems that are emerging now. But how do we stay strong ‘who we really are’, as we continue to move within our family and community systems? How do we get from here to there? How can we still belong, limitless and free from subjugation and the fractal patterns of ‘us and them’?

This curiosity is a movement towards unity, pushed by the human urge for belonging, order and balance.  The ‘Love Revolution’ is the mission of our sisterhood and our organisation Te Kawa Whaiora. We know the limitless resource which resides within, we know where our heart belongs.  Te Kawa Whaiora holds circle with youth, men, women, families, organisations, local and national government, using indigenous wisdom and Systematic Constellations. Our goal is always Mana Motuhake, the freedom from oppressive and suppressive systems that we belong to. The liberation of the human heart from subjugation brings restoration and revitalisation of the systems we belong to, enabling us all to live as our full potential.

In Constellation circles we create conditions that allow for a shift of awareness to happen, towards the emerging future. We invite you to explore with us the concept of Mana Motuhake, without the blocks of colonisation and disconnection. When we are sovereign and truly belong to ourselves, we then belong with others, belong with community, belong to humanity, and all spaces in between; water, sky, air and earth. Our organisation and collective heralds in a ‘new dawn’ where Mana Motuhake, peace and harmony is embodied and lived.
