Online wananga – Mau te rongo – meaning to be in a state of peace
2022 Dates coming soon
Are you ready to take another step on the journey home to yourself or needing aroha and tautoko at this difficult time?
In this safe and sacred space you will be empowered on your journey of healing. This is not a course for practitioners to learn the practice. This is a time and space for those that have experienced deep trauma. That had their intrinsic value taken from them and are ready to claim it back.
We will dive deep into learning about the realms of the whakapapa of energy and vibration, holistic wellbeing, waiata, takutaku, and the three hearts. We will learn traditional tools and knowledge of our tupuna to empower us and help us navigate our way through this world. We will begin to heal the past, setting ourselves, our children, and mokopuna free to soar into the future.
You must commit to only one type of session for the 4 weeks. (Daytime or Evening, you can’t change midway)
Daytime sessions: Mondays and Thursdays – 10am-12pm – starts Thurs 21st October *NOTE – This daytime session is only for sufferers from Abuse in State Care.

In this safe and sacred space, we will dive deep into learning about the realms of the whakapapa of energy and vibration, holistic wellbeing, waiata, takutaku, and the three hearts. We will learn traditional tools and knowledge of our ancestors to help us navigate our way through this modern world. As we shift and heal the pain, dis-ease, trauma, and intergenerational trauma holding us back we will create a space which sets ourselves, our children, and mokopuna free to soar into the future.
Our facilitator is Hera Cotter.
Iwi: Ngati Kahu ki Whangaroa, Nga Puhi,
Hera is of Ngati Kahu ki Whangaroa descent, an experienced Kairomiromi with a passion for our traditional healing arts and education. She comes from a long line of healers.
Hera was involved in the world of education when everything changed and she began her own healing journey. Hera learnt a lot about many different healing modalities on this journey which eventually led her to our traditional healing practices. It felt like coming home and Hera couldn’t get enough. She immersed herself in this world, living and breathing wānanga during these years.
She learnt a lot about herself along the way. As Hera says, one of the most important aspects in healing others is to first look at ourselves.
“I had to reflect on myself and see the traits that were causing my dis-ease, my inability to be my true self. I had to evolve, I had to heal.” Raised within the esoteric teachings of the Sufi tradition meant learning from a young age the importance of opening ones heart and being of service in the pursuit of truth.
Hera is driven to create change in our world, uplifting and empowering people to heal themselves and those around them and believes that the knowledge and tools of our ancestors is a very powerful way to heal, release trauma and set ourselves and others free of the past.
Hera trained for several years, under the guidance of Ruatau Perez – a student of Papa Hohepa Delamare – to practice the art of romiromi/mirimiri and also to hold space for healing. Be it working with groups in wānanga or one-on-one.
They travelled around the motu over the years of her training. Sharing wānanga from Otangaroa in the far north, to Hastings – all the way down to Te Wai Pounamu, Australia and Europe.
Once you have completed our 1 day foundation, you can proceed to the 2-day practitioner wananga and begin learning the traditional healing arts or the mau te rongo wananga to take another step along your personal journey of healing.
*NOTE – you can only book one at a time. For two people, perform the purchase twice please.
