Rangi Parauri Training - Becoming a Mataora

The Rangi Parauri package is designed to meet the needs of individuals, teams and organisations who work as practitioners in helping professions and want to become a Mataora (change agent).

Mataora develop their own pukenga (skills) by embedding the Mahi a Atua principles in their lives. Because they prioritise oranga whakapapa (bringing our stories to life) a Mataora is trained to share pūrākau with whānau to reconnect whānau to their own stories.

Training involves

  • Online Lesson time with responsive email and Matataki support

  • Facilitated by several Mataora

  • Creativity and fun is an essential part of our wānanga

  • Moko artists, musicians and romiromi/mirimiri practitioners will be available to engage with during our wānanga

  • Support from a team of Mataora with Mahi a Atua facilitation expertise. These experienced practitioners are present to guide discussion, foster peer connection and provide feedback on your assignments.

  • Explorations of traditional arts

  • Expert guidance in releasing psychological blockages

  • Exercises in confronting fears

  • Thoughtful discussions on the Doctrine of Christian Discovery

  • Revitalisation of traditional narratives

  • Reconnect with indigenous strength and heritage

  • Engaging in laughter, tears and debates

  • Strategising for a culturally rich and empowered future

Join us on this profound journey of self-discovery and communal empowerment.

Kao. We have a team who are well versed in Zoom and other technical components. You can email us at wananga@tekurahuna.com and we will make contact to support you.

Can I bring my children to Rangi Parauri? 

Yes, however, we ask that you check in with us first to wānanga how this will impact your and other tauira's ability to remain present during the learnings.

Are all the pūrākau from Ngati Porou?

Yes, however, Te Kurahuna encourages you to use your own pūrākau in your respective rohe. The goal is to use our oranga whakapapa as a means to navigate our way through challenges, articulate our situations, and connect with our momo o nga atua Māori.

What if I have to leave Rangi Parauri early?

If you need to leave early, just let the Te Kurahuna team know. It's ok, we will catch up with you during the Zoom Vision and post any videos that may be taken into the Rangi Parauri community page.
