Mā te rongo, ka mōhio,                     From listening comes knowledge,                 

Mā te mōhio, ka mārama,                 From knowledge comes understanding,

Mā te mārama, ka mātau,                From understanding comes wisdom,

Mā te mātau, ka ora.                        From wisdom comes wellbeing.

A well village is one in which individuals and whānau live and thrive

Appreciative of all the generous people and wonderful activities and initiatives in this village, workshop facilitator, Barry Taylor and Paekākāriki resident, thought about what he could offer to the life and wellbeing of Paekākāriki. The result is him offering these free wellbeing workshops for those who live in Paekākāriki. It is an opportunity for those in the village to understand more about what is required for us as individuals and whānau to live well and thrive. The workshops draw on the knowledge and insights gained from 35 years of Barry’s professional life working in the fields of promoting wellbeing and suicide prevention at the local, national and international levels.
