MATARIKI – The eyes of our chiefs
Matariki – Māori
Mata’ali’i – Samoa
Mataliki – Tonga
Join us on a journey home to the heart as we celebrate our Pāsifika (Pacific island) medicines under the sacred star alignment MATARIKI. Through ceremony we share knowledge, wisdom and traditional plant medicines that have opened the hearts and minds of our indigenous brothers and sisters since the beginning of time.
This alignment of astrological significance and sacred medicines will create a potent portal for the expansion of self. The ceremony will give space for growth, learning and understanding of our cultures and medicines.
This safe space will be supported with, breath, play, Pāsifika movement and meditation then move into dance and connection. Facilitated by our Pāsifika collective.
Matariki (The Eyes of our Chiefs) sends us messages about natural resources on earth and reminds us of the interconnectedness of all things, from cosmos to aiga (family) and the importance of our community. Matariki occurs at the rise of the pleiades star cluster (the seven sisters). This traditionally marks the start of the new year in Māori culture and is also a time of great travel through the Pacific Islands. It is a time for reflecting on the past year and setting intentions for the future, with a focus on personal growth and community wellbeing. This is also a time for honouring ancestors and cultural practices.
This year our Matariki celebration also aligns with the opening energies of the lions gate portal, this is when Orion’s belt and the star constellation Sirius aligns with the pyramids of giza bringing forth a time of great spiritual rising, a time to receive wisdom and knowledge.
(Please note this is an all genders and non-binary peoples inclusive event, and all participants must be 16years and over to part take)
Medicinal Offerings: “Kava Kuo Heka” the Tongan plant medicine Kava and “Samoan Koko (Cacao)” the Samoan Cacao medicine will be the featured elixir at MATARIKI.
