As above so below
Since opening in 2015, TūRongo Collective has been a holistic indigenous service. Specifically assisting others in finding themselves by providing an honest safe space to understand their difficulties and accomplishments. A learn by doing, learn by experiencing and learn by conscious choices, we, TūRongo Collective invite you to be brave, whole and honest with us but most of all WELCOME.
TūRongo Collective has been known for an unparalleled commitment to indigenous practices and teachings.
With a specialty in triggering the unknown, encouraging feeling uncomfortable, growing inner stamina and unlocking an honest stillness, the collective is well known for nurturing bravery within difference.
From youth justice mentoring services to workshops, to ritual activations, to training programs and wellness sessions, to relationship development and holistic spiritual healing we are committed to the wellness of supporting others.
Book your spot to take part in our workshops, classes, seminars and wananga. Please be aware that different workshops will have different cost exchanges. If you have any questions please feel free to email us.
Our sharings are not for free and we advise that if this is something you are searching for then this is not the place for you.
Quite often we meet in Western spaces the expectation that Indigenous sacred teachings should be free...this is how theft and destruction has happened to our peoples
Should the learnings be expected to be free please note that to not charge for our sharings, teachings and coaching would ultimately stand on every single person we come with and have learnt, studied and trained under.
This would completely disrespect the years upon years of commitment, trainings and devotion to this lifestyle. We do not intend to embarrass and stand on our ancestry, teachers, martial arts coaches, life coaches, mentors and qualifications by further not holding them with value.
Our lands have already been sold for blankets. We advise that you look towards your privilege should you feel this....This is colonisation in active mode.
Scholarships and payment plans are also available
A space to develop relationships between masculine energies
Conversations and developing how we communicate is something that is not often encouraged in our male encounters and as children we learn from our role models NOT to engage in conversation. But it is the cause for so much damage when we are taught that our communication capacities are not valued or valid. This time will be spent developing healthy masculine relationships between, fathers and sons, brother to brother, cousin to cousin and finally male to female relationships.
Our intention is to nurture and develop mindful relationships between male energies in ways that allow us to be more free and unrestricted from the projections of our day to day lives.
This wananga is by no means a way to fix peoples lives but more an opportunity to find yourself.
Please request an information pack for wananga fees

TūRongo Collective has earned its positive reputation due to the way in which each individual has been affected by the experiences they have encountered. With a specific focus on Rangatahi(youth) TūRongo C has been highlighted as a collective that delivers experiences that are reflected in the relationships between each other and therefore are easily mirrored onto the youth.
Participants will experience the following
Horse Riding | Martial Arts | Maori Weaponry | Herbal Medicine | Performance | Stunts | Maori and Pasifika dance | Diving, Kai Preservation | Hiking | Mountain Climbing | Community service support
This mentoring service is specifically designed to support the rise of our young Vaine. Our women can often be silenced from being allowed to experience sacred learnings but encouraged to be more masculine then necessary. This service highlights the need for BOTH and encourages our Rangatahi to be brave to the new experiences.
Workshops and training sessions
Our workshops cater to each group we are working with and their core values and goals.
Please feel free to inquire with your specifications and we will adjust our stance to support yours
