2 daagse mannenworkshop Nederland
‘Tane’ is translated as ‘men’ but for Maori, this means much more. In our traditional stories, Tane was given the responsible for ascending the heavens to obtain and return with the three baskets of knowledge. Within these baskets held all the necessary knowledge for all of humankind. Within this story, it tells of the many roles and responsibilities that he showed and is known for. He is then known by a range of names, Tanuiarangi, the guardian of all fauna and creatures of the forest, is but one of them. He is known for his leadership abilities, wisdom and healing skills. This workshop assists males to reconnect with these qualities.
Existing within the normal routine of life as it is for you, repeated over and over again can take a toll – Have you lost touch with nature, with yourself and your life. This workshop can provide a new perspective for you in your life and an opportunity to be right in nature, back to basics, among the forest and waters.The workshop explores Nga uri o Tane ie; exploring the different roles of Tane and how this relates to your role within different aspects of your life.

Review van Anouk: The workshop day was great. During the day Erina en Tikirow were abe to show us a path of growth. The training was not only practical but combined with the ceremonies I felt like opening up. The hospitality and food gave me except from the good quality of the food;
a feeling of warm welcome.
“So the cloud spoke and said; listen out loud to your beautiful heart that resonates in true frequency. Sunlight responded and whispered softly; I will dance in your light till humanity awakes in your essence” Anouk
