About the event


What is it about? 

There are a number of different people this wananga is for.  Perhaps you are one of the following?

  • You wonder if you are matekite (you see things, experience things, hear things, know things etc) and you want to understand  what you experience
  • As a child you had spiritual experiences but because you had no one to make sense of these things, you "turned it off".  Now you feel drawn here again and want to know more.
  • You have moments when you are in the "Zone" but feel it happens randomly, not all the time and want to know how to develop it more.
  • You have been using your matekite gift and want to develop it to help others
  • Or you just KNOW you have to attend this wananga - you don't know why - you just know you need to.

This three day wananga is practical and is the foundation of identifying, understanding, developing and moving in matekite.  

What does the curriculum cover?

There are three modules taught at Matekite.


The focus for this module is to 

  • identify your preferred modality - hearing, seeing, knowing
  • learn how to develop these modalities further in a safe environment
  • History and our loss of matekitetanga in society
  • what is Wairua?  How do we flow with it?  Recognising blockages in ourselves


The focus of this module is to  

  • Establish a daily practise to connect with and move in wairua
  • Recognising wairua with clarity - how to know it's wairua and not you
  • Foundations to "readings"
  • How to be in the community without getting overwhelmed
  • Putting your giftings into practice / confirmations 


The focus for this important module is to 

  • Learn the boundaries of wairua - operate within them
  • Safe practice - for yourself and others / integrity / authenticity
  • How to find a mentor to continue to develop your gifts
  • Finding your own blockages and releasing them - te ahi komau
