Wānanga: A Journey of Rediscovery and Connection

Embrace the profound wisdom of Māoridom. Whether you're seeking to reconnect with your roots, understand the world of Māori protocols, or simply find your place within this rich tapestry, our wānanga offers a unique, tailored experience.


At its core, "wānanga" is about the transmission of knowledge. It's a space where wisdom is shared, discussed, and preserved. But it's not just about academic or intellectual knowledge; it's about spiritual, cultural, and ancestral knowledge as well.

Traditionally, wānanga were gatherings or forums where tribal knowledge, genealogy, lore, and chants were taught and discussed. Wānanga is not just a physical space but a sacred space. It's a place where the spiritual meets the physical, where ancestors are remembered, and where the Māori worldview is celebrated and explored.

Unlike Western educational systems that often separate subjects and disciplines, wānanga embraces a holistic approach. It recognizes the interconnectedness of all things, teaching subjects in context with the Māori worldview, emphasizing the relationship between humans, nature, and the spiritual world.

Wānanga is also about building community. It's a place where people come together as a whānau (family), fostering connections, mutual respect, and a sense of belonging. It's not just about individual learning but about collective growth.

For many Māori and even non-Māori, wānanga offers a chance to reconnect with a rich cultural heritage. In a world where many feel disconnected from their roots, wānanga provides a bridge to the past, grounding individuals in tradition while also guiding them towards the future.
