I wanted a challenge (there is more to life than evenings in front of the television) and decided to do some studying in my spare time. Coincidentally I noticed an advertisement for a distance learning course called Mauri Ora. Intrigued I investigated further and became quite excited as this course is very much on a par with everything I value in life both spiritually and emotionally. I have now made a commitment to learn and understand all I can about Maori and New Zealand culture and also about cherishing the beautiful natural environment in this wonderful land called Aotearoa – land of the long white cloud.
I wanted to share this:
Tikanga means “By my practice, you will know mw” and is a saying that illustrates – it is what we do (tikanga) that determines who we are – and how true this is. You may also know this saying “actions speak louder than words”.
I’ll keep you posted on any special things I learn over the coming year but in the meantime here are some images we have taken previously on road trips around the South Island of New Zealand.
Thanks for visiting!
