Journey Into Power

Today I began my journey to the other side of the world… as I walked out to the plane at Gisborne airport, a kahu circled up above just in front of the plane – ahhhh – he tohu tēra – kua marino te huarahi kei mua i a au…

So a lovely sign from one of my kaitiaki – the kahu (hawk), forever on the paths that I travel, supporting and looking after me…
Today I began my journey – I’ve decided to call it “My Journey Into Power” because this feels like another healing journey, not so much an emotional journey like the last one, but more a coming out the other side, coming into my own… a feeling of being empowered… just like the kahu spreading it’s wings and flying… and it is the name of the only book that I am taking with me on my journey – a book that is going to keep me practicing yoga while I am away.
I’m looking forward to what lies ahead, always eager to learn and embrace change and difference and the people who await me on the other side of the world. I carry this mauri stone with me (all 8kg!) a mauri of this whenua (land) to another whenua as a tohu, a symbol of the journey, the stories and the spirit of who we are and where we come from…
Arohanui,
Jo x
