A spiritual journey of discovery, a creative grounding and empowering workshop for women !
Are you at a crossroads in life ?
Do you want to get more in touch with your spiritual path and soul purpose?
Are you looking for tools to enhance your health and wellbeing?
Do you need to break through anything inhibiting you from moving forwards ?
The Maori New Year of Matariki symbolises change. Matariki is a time for releasing things from the past that no longer serve you to create space and freedom for new beginnings. A sacred time for regrowth.
This is a time to reconnect with your Mauri (life essence) to be true to who you really are. A time to come closer to manifesting your dreams, passions and creative potential.
Within our small sacred circle of women we will connect and share at a deep level with the support of our ancestors, our earth mother Papatuanuku and our sky father Ranginui. We will journey into sacred places around Rotorua to feel the earths’ vibrations and reconnect with ourselves and IO-source of all.

Tena Koe Wikitoria

I gained precious knowledge of this traditional taonga, and once again i thank you Wiki.
I look forward to having maybe another opportunity of experiencing and learning from you

‘I attended the december 2012 Romiromi level 1 workshop in Rotorua at the beautiful Lakeside retreat, and had been very much looking forward to it after having a Romiromi massage in 2011 in Sydney.
I have been a massage therapist (holistic/remedial, pregnancy, reiki, sacred stone) and Herbalist for 12 years and I must say the Romiromi teachings really resonated with me. Beyond learning the actual sequence, which is strong, balanced and flowing. It was the lessons form Wikitoria on working in neutrality that I appreciated the most. I had been taught this before but I never fully got it. As a practitioner this is so important and has really helped me in my work.
Wiki is a wonderful teacher, honest and generous with her knowledge. There is no ‘fluff’… it is a grounded wisdom from the ancient ones that I feel privileged to have been introduced to’
Kia Ora Wiki
Back home safe and sound..
I want to thank you again for the weekend, feeling truly blessed. It has truly opened my eyes as to the effectiveness of this ancient knowledge, to the point where I am incredibly keen to learn more, as much as I can infact… I feel as though I have gone through a powerful transformation and I owe that to you and all who participated in this workshop.
I feel this jewel needs to be shared with the world.
Because my mission is to instigate healing in the world, and because I have experienced first hand the power of Romiromi, I really want to delve into this more… I mean, I want to acquire a pretty thorough understanding of it, no matter how long that takes. So please please please do let me know of any upcoming workshops etc, or any other way that I can continue to learn! I would be really grateful.
Wow. Ka Mau te Wehi!
I have been going through a lot and processing a seriously memorable weekend and introduction to Romiromi. I thought i knew the traumas within my lifetime with which the Romiromi would finally heal, which has helped do so anyway, but the shock, that in fact I had no idea what was coming, has been quite huge and am only really catching up with myself again now.
I have felt a little disconnected since coming back to the city to sixth floor apartment living, and absolutely realise the depth with which I fell in love with Ohinemutu and Rotorua. I will definitely be back soon! Fortunately i will be spending next week up in Otaki / Kuku Beach doing my mahi, and have a support network up there, which will be helpful to be around the Maoritanga again. Three of my kuia there do mirimiri so i am looking forward to sharing korero with them about your and Hohepa’s teachings and my fantastic experience.
If anything, this weekend has given me the ability to relax, trust in all the tohu that i receive, and know that i am on the right track.
I also want to share with you previous to my booking online of the workshop, I had numerous moemoea and woke with the name Hohepa in my mind very clearly for a couple of weeks… Hence why my heart smiled when on the first day of the waananga when you mentioned Papa Hohepa, the connection then became clear.
The Kaupapa of you and everything you encompass, I am in total support of. I believe that tangata whenua and tamariki from all around the motu shall receive benefit from the taonga of Romiromi with which you carry, amongst and alongside the importance of Hauora in today’s context and in the everyday lives of New Zealanders.
I look forward to your reply and must re enforce my gratitude and
sincere feelings at this time.
Kia ora Wikitoria,
I feel so humble and fortunate to have received the Whare waananga mahi. Te Roro o Te Rangi Marae is such a beautifully connected and powerful place. Thank you for facilitating the Romiromi workshop and for providing for us all throughout the weekend. Your style and communication comfortably transfers the knowledge effortlessly and I was able to come away with real learning and experience.
The past few days after the workshop saw me processing the learnings and coming to some major realisations. I found and have started reading the book Tohunga by Paul Moon about Hohepa Kereopa. I will also find the book you have recommended. My wish to know more and to practise Romiromi is inspired by your workshop and by your mahi.
Thank you, I have much respect for you and the work you do!
Much Love always,
Melbourne Workshop Testimonial
What a powerful, full-on workshop we had last weekend. Thank you from the heart for coming across the ditch and opening us up to something so great. It really was an experience as so many seminars we attend are but a chore for getting continuing education hours. This was more a life changer! Not sure what I will do with the experience yet. When I finished Sunday had all ideas of incorporating at my work but now letting it all settle and work out itself. I use the leg lift glut haemata technique with a smile!
Sydney Workshop Testimonial
Blessings, I’m just settling after an amazing weekend in Sydney learning and sharing the amazing Romi Romi massage and all.
It has bought such an enlightenment on my beliefs and confirmed with me alot of what I feel I do.
I loved every single bit of it. It has synchronised a lot with what I feel – the more I practise the more it will sink into my cells!
I felt I let go of so much ego over the past 2 weeks something I thought I had really let go of with the course it was right in my face!
Im so thankful for the Great Mystery, Great Spirit IO IO IO IO!
Wiki I would love to come to NZ I feel I have had a past life there.
Ive been told when Ive given people Ka Hunas that I work like a Maori?! What is the Maori language called? I would love to start learning.
The prayers and Shield sound Powerful in your home language.
Wiki how many levels are there to the great Romi Romi? and is there one in Rotorua in January 2013?
Hello my healing friends, I am now back in the US and wanted to say thank you for the wonderful weekend of healing and learning and sharing I had with you all on Waiheke Island. It was a truly pure experience of which I am still gaining from. I’m not sure if or when we’ll cross paths in the future, but I wanted to take the time to say THANK YOU to everyone I met there. You guys are magic – and Wiki, thank you for the powerful healings, I don’t think I’ve ever felt this “at one” with myself and life – your RomiRomi has touched me deeply. Kia Ora my good friends..
I feel fantastic since the workshop. For the last 4 years I have had a lot of restriction and discomfort in my right hip, (and thigh to knee) for which I have tried numerous “alternative” treatments. This week it is the free-est it has been for all these years and some old old ancestral stuff seems to be clearing. This is amazing. And so unexpected. I feel so blessed to be experiencing this as a result of the workshop PLUS very humbled by your sharing of your knowledge. I feel it is a real taonga for me at this point in my life and will treat it with all the honour and respect it deserves. Thank you Wiki – and also Audie
As a Pakeha, I continue to be humbled by the willingness to share and the aroha of Maori – the acceptance I always feel when on a marae – the fun and the laughter – all this despite the terrible losses and grief that Maori have suffered as a result of my white ancestors occupying this land. I pray that we find a way forward that deeply honours and heals both our cultures.
Thankyou so much for allowing me to be part of your journey that you are so passionate about.
I had an amazing time with the experiences of the Waananga and the women I met

Nga mihi ki a koe, ive been out of town im back now, well may i add what a wonderful wananga that was
So thank you my dear, our group were very lucky to have had that wairua time with you and each other
i welcomed the soreness as i needed that for such along time i would like to book you
for a mirimiri /romiromi next week or whenever you’re free.
Words cannot explain the wonderful weekend I experienced back home at the Maori Spiritual Healing Workshop
Truely inspirational! Im so blessed to have found this new path in my life and so proud to be a Maori woman.
Wiki Oman..so glad I found you.. thank u for showing me this wonderful journey!
Kia Ora and thank you I have been processing many things since my weekend in Queenstown. I felt this was a life changing experience for me with regards to the way I want to assist people in healing and I mean to mearly ‘assist’ as a vessel for higher wisdoms to heal the individual.
For me personally, it was a huge awakening. I thought it was mearly for the love and appreciation for ancient healing wisdoms that I was at your workshop, but now I know it was also much deeper than that. Thank you so much for starting to open my eyes to such a deep level of healing and helping me start to release unneeded energy from my body. I only wish I could continue to practice and strengthen what I learned with the wonderful group in Queenstown. If you do know anyone in the Nelson area that might be interested in getting together or even anyone in the area that practices romiromi, I would be grateful to know of them. Thanks again Wiki for everything. You are such a special person and I hope we will meet again.Blessings, Heidi H
I would highly recommend that you participate in the next Wananga because you won’t regret it.
I find it easy to learn when a teacher has a gentle and humble spirit which I found in Wikitoria.
The one thing that stood out for me in doing this Waananga was the wisdom I found in the stories and whakapapa of Maoridom and implementing them in the practical Bodywork has literally changed my life. I felt like the core of me returned, it instilled me with a stronger sense of belonging armed with ancient knowledge of my own people; my cultural heritage and practical learning that has bought positive change on every level. It has felt like I’ve been searching all my life for something and after the experience of Romiromi and this Waananga, I’ve found it.
I was able to use all of my abilities in this waananga and it was a privilege and honor to serve others and IO. It is my hope that this learning will be available to my next generation and communities in which I live and come from no reira ka nui te mihi aroha ki te Kaiako, he manawa maumahara ki te pukenga o Papa Hohepa Delamere no reira ka nui te mihi ki a koe, ko Wikitoria. Thank you for carrying the seed to the nations.
