WORKSHOP DESCRIPTION:

Come along and join your celebrant companions as we consider how we might incorporate aspects of tikanga Māori into our ceremonies. Simply put, Mātauranga Māori means ‘Māori knowledge', a modern term that broadly includes traditions, values, philosophies and world views.

Vicky will lead us in our exploration of what, when and how we might include te ao Māori in our celebrant work. We will learn about ngā atua Māori, appropriate karakia for different contexts and how they could be used in openings and closings to enhance our ceremonies.
