Welcome to Grandmothers Healing Haka
GRANDMOTHERS HEALING HAKA was created by Mere Tewake Tana, her grandson Ojasvin Kingi Davis and Whanau in 1998, inspired by the “Earth celebration” in Switzerland, an arts festival of all cultures of the world.
It is a dance that transforms lives. It is for everyone, young and old, male and female. It brings the male and female energies back into balance and creates peace within yourself, for mother earth.
HAKA is an anciant power dance practiced by Maori people from New Zealand. It is known to be vigorously expressed with strong vocal and dynamic body gestures. This art form not only can prepare your state of mind for battle, but it can also bring your mind toward the state of healing. It gives you empowerment and self-confidence.
GRANDMOTHERS HEALING HAKA SEMINARS are powerful, deep, liberating, safe, warm, loving, healing and joyful. Out of silence and ritual, we sing, shout, make music and dance Haka. With a full healing heart we create all together dynamic free peace.
This power dance imparts wisdom and love from the tradition of the Waitaha-Maori grandmothers, the water carriers, to encourage people to remember their own cultural roots.
Remembering our roots is helping to sustain the cultural diversity, which is disappearing. This is happening every day as our modern world is consuming the natural resources of our planet. The abundance of our world, can be seen as a garden of flowers, full of fragrance, full of colour, full of beauty that inspires and nourishes our whole well-being.
For the first time in January 2010, Grandmothers Healing Haka Wananga-schooling had prepared an international group to go on the two week Grandmothers Healing Haka experience TOUR 2010 to Aotearoa - New Zealand, on the trails of Grandmother Mere Tewake Tana to meet her land, her family and her ancient living culture.
