Kaiako-Facilitator: Wikitoria Oman (Te Atiawa, Ngati Whakaue)
I was born 1956 in Gisborne, the first place in the world to see the sun in the east. I belong to a Maori tribe from the west , Te Atiawa descending from Te Whiti o Rongomai who led one of the first pacifist resistance movements in the world. Still today our people wear the plume of three white feathers symbolic of this movement and its spiritual legacy, peace on Earth and goodwill to all mankind.
My other tribe is Ngati Whakaue of Rotorua where I returned to open Wikitoria Maori Healing in 2010. My great grandfather was Pererika Peneti the first Maori Bishop of Aotearoa and my great uncle John was a traditional healer.
I am also grateful to my ancestors from France, Italy, England, Scotland and Ireland and Germany !
In 2001 I went in search of some healing and was guided by Matua Pat Ruka to a traditional Maori healing clinic in Auckland. I was to meet two men who would change my life . Hohepa De La Mere known as Papa Joe was a world renown Tohunga (high priest, expert) and teacher of matauranga(knowledge) Maori. He held waananga (workshops)and traditional Maori healing clinics around New Zealand and throughout the world before his passing in 2006. One of his first students was Ruatau Perez who was given a body of knowledge or ‘Waananga Lore’ and responsibility to run Papa’s clinics in Auckland. I studied and trained under Ruatau for over seven years before opening my own practice in Rotorua my base where we have a private practice and facilitate workshops in Aotearoa and globally -Hawaii, Australia and Europe.
I am forever grateful to have crossed paths with Papa Joe and Ruatau and my tupuna who shared the traditional Maori healing taonga. Traditional Maori healing is an ancient and holistic path to health and wellbeing . It warms my heart to pass on this taonga with those who are ready to receive this knowledge in service to humanity.
Tihei mauri ora !
Kia tau te Rangimarie ki runga ki te Ao Katoa
