180 Years of the Treaty of Waitangi in Tauranga

180 years ago, on 10 April 1840, one of the signings of the Treaty of Waitangi took place in Tauranga Moana.

The story of Te Tiriti o Waitangi in Tauranga is a fascinating one… Not all of the local chiefs agreed to sign the Treaty; those who didn’t wanted to govern themselves, those who did were looking for protection against their enemies.

Join award-winning author Debbie McCauley as she talks us through the research for her book, ‘The Treaty of Waitangi in Tauranga: Te Tiriti o Waitangi ki Tauranga Moana’.

This month’s book:

Title: The 100-Year-Old Man Who Climbed Out the Window and Disappeared
Author: Jonas Jonasson
Description: The international publishing sensation–over six million copies sold worldwide! A reluctant centenarian much like Forrest Gump (if Gump were an explosives expert with a fondness for vodka) decides it’s not too late to start over . . . After a long and eventful life, Allan Karlsson ends up in a nursing home, believing it to be his last stop. The only problem is that he’s still in good health, and in one day, he turns 100. A big celebration is in the works, but Allan really isn’t interested (and he’d like a bit more control over his vodka consumption). So he decides to escape. He climbs out the window in his slippers and embarks on a hilarious and entirely unexpected journey, involving, among other surprises, a suitcase stuffed with cash, some unpleasant criminals, a friendly hot-dog stand operator, and an elephant (not to mention a death by elephant).

This is a meet up.

Breathwork Workshop

Breathwork is a healing modality that is taking the world by storm. Why? Because it is so effective! It allows people to heal themselves through the power of their own breath.

Breathwork is a powerful way to release old energies, memories and tensions from the body and mind.

How does it work?
By laying down and relaxing the whole body listening to a soundtrack journey we breathe in a conscious connected rhythm. This breathwork practice is inhaling and exhaling with an open mouth, it is a circular breathing pattern with no pause between the inhale and exhale. Throughout the session you will be guided into a non ordinary state of consciousness using the breath to access parts of yourself that is usually outside of your daily awareness.

For more information about breathwork, how it works and if this is for you click the link below…

Depression
Anxiety
Trauma release
Connecting to and strengthening intuition
Gaining clarity
Stress relief

Connecting to old stuck emotions
Forgiving the past
Gaining body awareness
Breathing problems
Restrictions in the body
and so many more benefits

Ecstatic Dance Workshop

Ecstatic dance is an intuitive freeform dance; we come together to connect with and through our body. Dancers are guided by the rhythms of the music to their own spontaneous flow that allows them to freely express through sound and movement.

There are no judgements; there is no right or wrong. This is simply a space to explore the way your body moves to the music that is presented. Allow yourself to be taken on an internal journey and be surprised by what unfolds.

The music is personally selected each week to take you on a journey, starting out slowly to allow you to land in your body after your day and building to a place of release before coming back to rest again.
