Everything has mauri: people; animals; houses; trees; rivers; mountains; a chair. Mauri knits and binds everything together creating a whole in its totality. Everything has its own mauri with a vibrating essence that flows into other mauri to make a complete essence.
Manawa = Heart Space
The heart is the compass. The conductor. Our guide for Truth. It is where everything is woven together.
Māori Marsden describes Te Whē as the clothing of the word. It is the reverberation of the sound created when the wind moves through the leaves.
