Whatumanawa

Mauri is of an energy that abides within the individual and contains Hau Ahi. These two things together are known as ones spiritual seat. The spiritual seat is said to be the resting place of Te Hawahawa Maakoha -the tranquil vibration- which enters the Mauri and feeds Hau Ahi by means of Whatumanawa.

Through the action of Whakariterite o Wairua Iho, the universal Wairua is absorbed and filtered into the physical body through Te Mana Whaarite Whitu finally entering the spiritual seat through Whatumanawa.


Whatumanawa is the supreme connection between the personal and universal sub-conscious worlds.

Whatumanawa is neutral and all potentialities exist within. It is spiritual in nature and conversely the physicality of humanity is what inhibits its understanding and unlocking the potential therein. Through understanding of Whatumanawa access and union with the personal and universal sub-conscious is attained.

Te Whare Waananga o Ngaa Atua Maarire is of the philosophy that teaches one to act without thinking, while being dedicated to the art of Omnipresence, of being ever in the eternal here and now, to sense rather than think by means of Whatumanawa.

Within the teachings of Io as held by curriculum of Te Whare Waananga o Ngaa Atua Maarire, a knowledge is contained that exposes the pathway to accessing and maintaining control of Whatumanawa. There are a series of twelve names of Io which are cryptic but through investigation understanding is sought.

Through the attainment of that understanding access and maintaining control of Whatumanawa becomes a matter of practicing daily ones understanding in conjunction with the practice of Tauriterite Oo Te Ao Tinana until clarity of mind and intuition prevail whilst remaining under constant pressure from Hinengaro which strives to dominate and be heard.

The following sequence of Io names contain the essence for the learning's of Whatumanawa. The names create a pathway to acquisition of divine knowledge. Io is the pathway to divine knowledge and the embodiment of knowledge endowed.

"Through unison with Io te Matapou unison with the divine elemental is gained."

The three Kite and two Stones gifted from Io to Taane are symbols for the endowed conscious and sub-conscious of humans by Io.

The conscious is represented by two Atua: Rongomaitahanui and Rongomaitaharangi and are names for the right and left brain respectively, while the sub-conscious is represented by Mootoi, that is cerebellum that forms part of Whatumanawa symbiosis. While the right and left brain are represented by two Atua from Ngaa Atua Cosmogony, the Mootoi remains independent as its function is of divine purpose that is directly related to Whatumanawa and precedes Ngaa Atua Genealogy.
Understanding the Io codes given above allows tremendous insight into the philosophies of Mauri, Wairua and Taakuira which illuminate the pathway to Whatumanawa.

This celestial trio (Maauri, Wairua and Taakuira) is also an entity of divine belief.

1. Wairua can be likened to that of a non physical element of the human, but not as a Keehua.

2. Maauri is of an energy that abides within the individual.

3. Taakuira is not by any means part of the human anatomy. It resides metaphorically speaking in the sacred house of the realm of Io in Te Whare Rauroha.

Therefore understanding Io and the many name codes pertaining to the functions and purposes of Whatumanawa, leads to the understanding of Taakuira and its role towards enlightenment.

From within Te Kura, Taakuira is a conduit to Whatumanawa, and Wairua a messenger, while Mauri plays the advocate for Whatumanawa.
