Kia ora and welcome to Whānau Mārama System Mapping

whānau ora is realised."
Ko Onekawa te maunga te rū nei tāku ngākau. Ko Waiotahe te awa e mahea nei aku māharahara. Ko Te Moana-nui-ā-Kiwa tōku moana.
No Ōhiwa ahau. Ko Celt tōku iwi. Ko Scots me Irish ōku hapū. Ko Hakarimata tōku maunga. Ko Waikato tōku awa. Ko Erin Lewis ahau.
I am Erin Lewis, I was born and raised in the Waikato. I now live in the Eastern Bay of Plenty, and I call this beautiful region home. My whakapapa stretches back to the settlement days here in Aotearoa, and before that to Ireland, on both sides of my father’s line, and the male side of my mother’s. My mother’s mother was born in Scotland, and so there is a thread of Scots in me too.
My life’s work has been as a yoga and meditation teacher, TRE Trauma Release Exercise Facilitator, author of The Love Revolution, and a
Systemic Constellation facilitator and trainer. All of these occupations
come from a desire to help people remove blocks and to clear resistance that stands between them and love, for them personally, and within their families and communities.

My name is Parehuia Mafi I live upon my tūrangawaewae or ancestral lands in the rohe (region) of Mataatua in the Eastern Bay of Plenty, Aotearoa NZ. I have spent over 20 years working within tribal communities and the government sector. This kaupapa (Collective Cause) has evolved from my own whānau, hapū and iwi (tribal) experience of healing from trauma as the child of our countries ‘stolen’ generation and colonisation. This work is transformational and as my father would say it is just ‘user friendly’. It’s an honour to share ‘a way’ to support whanau, community and humanity to thrive.

We would like to acknowledge the work of our co-founders, our Kuia Nanny (late) Jozie Karanga, and whānau for their pioneering work to bring Systemic Constellations developed over 30 years ago by Bert Hellinger, to Aotearoa.
Our story is about sisters, mothers, tāne and wāhine reaching out and coming together to liberate ourselves from our intergernerational mamae (trauma) and release our individual and collective potential.
Our collective wisdoms, knowledge, practices and constellation experience within Aotearoa and the world has culminated in the creation of this innovative movement we have named Whānau Mārama System Mapping (c).
This is invaluable knowledge as the Whānau Mārama process is somatic, and processed through the body and its stored cellular memories. It is also a powerful tool for releasing intergenerational trauma safely and swiftly.
