WHATS ON 

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. 

DISCLAIMER 

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

Our reputation for being quite an active and unparalleled collective has been set as such due to our nature of committed work ethics.

These sessions are very extensive. Involving all three of your sessions into one class. A journal is required as our workshops can feel like whole days when its only 1 hour. 

They are extensive and life changing. This work is about drawing the teachings into your lifestyle and incorporating the coaching modalities into your life with assisted healing.

Many a time, we find ourselves not able to participate in learnings due to our pepi/our babies and children. 

However as tutors and youth justice mentors of all ages we are quite capable of supporting you there. 

If this is something you would like for yourself where you can learn and your children can also be cared for and learn, then please make sure that you also book this option for yourself.

Mentoring Services

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

 

Mana Vaine

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.

*Please note programme fees and wananga fees vary, and are based on participation and risk assessment (juvenile detention).

Our organisation stand by paying our indigenous people their years of training, studies, experiences, time, investment, qualifications and value.

As indigenous knowledge is the most valued and ancient forms of teachings, we uphold the values and therefore request that you please remember that our time given in our organisation is not for free. In times of old we would give taonga, gifts that serve and represent the appreciation of our sharing.  Please do not assume because we are indigenous you will get in for free  and expect our services to be free to you.
