Manawa Ora Mirimiri and Healing Workshop, Frankston, MELBOURNE

About this Event

The foundations of MIRIMIRI and ROMIROMI - authentic Maori bodywork and healing. Connect to cultural knowledge and practice! Gain insight, rediscover your potential and experience personal transformation at this unique 2-day event! This workshop is for anyone; from beginner to practitioner. 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.

Our Venue is the Nairm Marr Djambana Inc Aboriginal Association, Frankston.We are excited and very humbled that we are permitted to hold this Workshop on their whenua (tribal land) and with their support.

Jolie Davis is an established traditional practitioner and educator (formally a trained nurse) from the Te Rarawa/Ngati Kuri tribes, 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 and 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 and whanau (extended family in the wider sense).

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. Spaces are strictly limited.

9am - 5pm. Saturday and Sunday. Shared lunch Saturday. Morning teas and Sunday lunch provided. email: joliedavis@manawaora.org
