“We welcome our ancestors here today,
and we greet and welcome yours here too.”
We would like to acknowledge the work of our co-founders, our Kuia Nanny (late) Jozie Karanga, and whānau for their pioneering work to bring Systemic Constellations developed over 30 years ago by Bert Hellinger, to Aotearoa.
Our story is about sisters, mothers, tāne and wāhine reaching out and coming together to liberate ourselves from our intergernerational mamae (trauma) and release our individual and collective potential.
Our collective wisdoms, knowledge, practices and constellation experience within Aotearoa and the world has culminated in the creation of this innovative movement we have named Whānau Mārama System Mapping (c).
This is invaluable knowledge as the Whānau Mārama process is somatic, and processed through the body and its stored cellular memories. It is also a powerful tool for releasing intergenerational trauma safely and swiftly.
Te Kawa Whaiora (c) is the Aotearoa, New Zealand collective that was co-founded by Erin Lewis,
whānau, hapū, iwi leaders, and senior Whānau Mārama System Mapping Practitioners in 2017.
"Whainga te kawa hei tikanga whaiora. The practice of life giving natural laws"
