Pito-Mata-Pania-Papa
Pito Mata – CD and DVD
Pito Mata He waiata hei whakatau i te mauri - By Pania Papa "Iti noa aha, he pito mata" The term 'Pito Mata' is taken from the above proverb, which refers to a small uncooked portion of kūmara that was replanted to produce many more kūmara. From this proverb, the term 'pito mata' is now used in some contexts to express the notion of 'potential'. Pito Mata acknowledges the potential within 0-5 year olds, with a hope that that potential can be nurtured, developed and allowed to be expressed freely. This CD/Dvd set by Pania Papa is in Te reo Māori and was made to soothe and relax you and your child. It contains 10 Maori lullabies on an Audio CD and a Singalong DVD with the Māori words rolling along the bottom of the screen.

Mauri Ora Wisdom from the Māori world

Mauri Ora Wisdom from the Māori world - By Peter Alsop & Te Rau Kupenga

Pearls of wisdom – whakataukī – have been gifted from generation to generation as an intrinsic part of the Māori world. As powerful metaphors, they combine analogy and cultural history in the most economical of words. Short and insightful, they take you by surprise, engendering reflection, learning and personal growth. Mauri Ora links whakataukī to key personal virtues idealised across cultures and generations. The virtues – wisdom, courage, compassion, integrity, self-mastery and belief – stem from the field of positive psychology; the study of how to live a better life. Illustrated throughout with wonderful photographs from an old world, this book draws on traditional wisdom to provide a recipe for personal effectiveness and leadership, and a rewarding connection of Māori knowledge to contemporary thinking about personal happiness and fulfilment.
