Runaia meaning “the coming together to work on our wellbeing”

The purpose of this wānanga is to provide support for our tangata whaiora and their whānau to re-connect themselves to their ukaipō and provide guidance on their journey to wellness. 


He Puna Ora will jointly partner with Korowaitia Te Puna Waiora to deliver a series of wānanga / workshops that will encompass our own narratives / pūrakau from a mātauranga māori viewpoint with an emphasis of hauora a whānau.


“Korowaitia te puna waiora, hei oranga motuhake mō te iwi” Holding space for whānau to feel safe and to share their lived experience in an environment that upholds the mana of our people, is essential for them to feel valued, understood and be open to new learning.


Te Whare Tapa Wha is the framework in which the wānanga will be delivered. Identifying each taha as a space we learn and introduce practical learning. These will be facilitated by those experienced in raranga, mahi toi, taonga puoro, kapa haka, whakairo just to name a few. On completion of each taha, whānau will be given a taonga to add to their kete.
