MAORI HEALING WORKSHOP – HAWAII, Big Island, Keleakua
Keeping Ancient Traditions Alive
October 17-18, 2011
As an ongoing exchange with the Hawaiians, Wikitoria Oman, Te Arawa, Te Atiawa, is returning to the Big Island to facilitate a Maori Healing Workshop to follow the annual Hawaiian Lomilomi Conference.
Both Maori and Hawaiian cultures strive to perpetuate and strengthen the indigenous healing arts by re-establishing the Polynesian connection.
The sharing of the traditional healing bodywork; Maori Romiromi and Hawaiian Lomilomi keeps the practices alive by exploring the similarities and differences of the two modalities.
Maori Romiromi Massage and Healing was passed down through generations of Maori but went underground with the Tohunga Suppression Act last century. Wikitoria’s teacher and mentor Papa Hohepa De La Mere revived and spread this ancient tradition.
Wikitoria describe’s the practice as a vehicle for deepening and enhancing any bodywork modality. Working at a cellular level allows a person to experience great release of energy blockages on a physical, emotional, mental and spiritual level, allowing more space and freedom, and reversal of dysfunction in the body.
A powerful tool in this millennium!
