PONZ Conference Workshop: Wairua in life and death

Thursday, September 21, 2017   Posted in: Training By: Administrator With tags: maori, health, culture, medical

Come along to this 2-hour workshop on how Māori healing perspectives and bicultural collaboration can help us support Māori whānau with the spiritual side of severe and life threatening illness.

This presentation will look at a collaboration between a Māori healer (Wiremu NiaNia) and a Consultant Psychiatrist (Dr Allister Bush) and examine how this joining together of western medical perspectives and Te Ao Māori (Māori worldviews) can assist Māori whānau members with a range of distressing problems.

Date: Friday 3rd November 2017
Time: 8.30 to 10.30am. Refreshments will provided after the workshop.
Location: Rydges Latimer Christchurch (30 Latimer Square).
Cost: $40 per person.

Register online to attend this workshop with Wiremu NiaNia and Dr Allister Bush. The workshop is presented as part of the Psychosocial Oncology New Zealand (PONZ) Conference.

The presentation will feature the story of one Māori young person and her whānau, and the impact her meeting with Wiremu had on her psychological distress in her later teenage years. Some years later she experienced the terminal illness and death of her beloved grandfather. Her experiences from the point of view of a young person with a fine spiritual atunement will be described as well as her perspectives on death and dying, influenced by guidance from Wiremu during their interactions over several years.
