Tipaka Moana – The Hauraki Gulf Oceans Lab

“Nothing for Mother nature without Mother Nature.”

Four days, 28 incredible people and a journey of spiritual enlightenment! Wow! We are very blessed to be a part of this incredible group on Rotoroa Island in the Hauraki Gulf.

We shared our Hauora Moana Community Monitoring Initiative with the group – plunging into 17C water to feel the qualities of the moana and hear her voice. The experience fitted in perfectly with the week’s journey, connecting us all to the mauri of the gulf.

This is an on-going journey that we’re sharing with this group, facilitated by a highly skilled team from The Spirit Lab! Many insights, learnings, words of wisdom and transformation. We are privileged to be part of this journey of Life, in which we’re all participants, with the freedom to experiment ways of being that bring more love, compassion and service into the world

Heartfelt thanks to:
