RONGO: Mahere Kupu / Word Map

RONGO : Ka noho mōhio te tinana, te wairua.

To sense; to cure; the state of peace.

It sparks me to consider how these things connect. To listen, we need to make ourselves peaceful. And how healing is it, at times, to simply be heard? A rongoā of sorts? What else might we hear, if we're more aware?

Here's a tipi haere into the world within the word.

This has come from a little time spent nerding out with the dictionary. I'd love to hear any other kōrero you may have about this kupu, or other shoots & branches that also grow on this kupu tree. Kia mau te rongo e kare mā. x
