About Me

Me, Myself, and I
I have recently experienced how much effort it takes to stand up in front of people and say something you believe in. Its when the people who you love most... friends and whanau... don't understand you, leaving you battered and bruised. It's probably why, a lot of people don't say anything... even if they themselves do a lot of talking. Im still learning to trust my voice... which tells me un-erringly to keep towards building people. This is what I stand for. This is why I speak. I haven't got it right yet... but thats ok.

You see... I still haven't found an organic way to converse, see, hear and learn from others... however... I definitely do not want an artificial one.

Much love & light...

  • Teina's speech at the International Folksong Festival 2008 - Beijing China

    E nga mana, e nga reo, e nga maunga karangaranga huri noa te ao, tena koutou, tena koutou, tena koutou katoa.

    In the words of our ancestors… to the many dignified people gathered here today, the many voices, each voice representing a different country, we greet you all.

    We greet you because we have all traveled to this beautiful land of China to share and celebrate our songs with each other. It is my hope that as we raise our voices and sing our songs we will hear each others difference, and celebrate the diversity of cultures that exist in our world.

    We are Maori, the indigenous people of New Zealand. Te Manawa Maurea - The Invigorated Heart. Our ancestors are Polynesian and we are closely related to other races of Polynesia. We are a small race of people. In comparison to Beijing’s 17 million people, there are only 4 million people in all of New Zealand – and only 400,000 of those are Maori. Although we are small in number, we are big in heart and big in voice. We believe we can share with the world a way to live ‘better’, people with other people, and people’s fragile relationship with the earth. We can teach these things through our songs, and by nature of the way in which we sing them. We call our particular style of folk-song KAPA HAKA. I am happy to be introducing the real heart of KAPA HAKA to you.

    Our songs come from our connections to the environment of which we are guardians. The oceans, the wind, the animals, birds and insects, all inform the way we sing and the content of what we sing. We sing in short about connections, and relationships. When we sing we remember those who have passed away, and so there is a fine line separating the living from the dead. We must therefore always sing with passion and freedom. We must express how we feel with vigour – and most fiercely with aroha – love.

    This passion in performance is called HAKA. HA in Maori means the breath of life – and KA means with energy likened to electricity, perhaps very similar in nature to CHI. This passion is expressed and shown in action through the wiri (shaking of the hand), the pukana (protrusion of the eyes), and whatero (poking out of the tongue). Each of these actions, encourage us as individuals to feel passionate about life, and to express that passion, encouraging others to feel passionate about life also.

    KAPA – literally translates to mean stand in rows. This form insists in the ability to sing as a group, or an ensemble. We must learn how to contribute as an individual, but always to benefit the whole group. We are constantly looking for a collective FLOW. When one person moves in a particular way, how does the next person respond to achieve FLOW? When one person sings a particular note, how do we listen to put in our own harmony? We must learn to not sing louder than the next person, but in harmony with them. How does this teaching reflect the way we live in the world? Can we as a global society achieve the same sense of FLOW?

    In this way of thinking, there is no hierarchy. In KAPA HAKA there are no real soloists. Each person in the group is important and they know why they are important. They do not necessarily look the same, sound the same, or feel the same. In fact they are all quite different.

    KAPA HAKA – is therefore a collective passion of expression. I encourage us all to keep singing, adding our unique voice into the bigger global mix. In order to sing well, we must first LISTEN harder, and know when and how to harmonise with others. Only then will we achieve FLOW on a global scale.

    Dah Jia Hao!

    When everything clicks, and there is an optimal experience. This is called FLOW.

    Always looking for it... not always easy to get... requires an openness to recieve off others... union... communion... It requires trust.... faith... heart. FLOW.

    I am excited. I witnessed FLOW last week once more. It was here in Wellington, Kapa Haka Kura Tuarua A Motu ' 08. That was the most powerful experience. I acknowledge, appreciate and am humbled by the people who experienced it with me... for without you, FLOW would have been impossible.

    Thank you!

  • FLOW

    This is not a recipe for how to achieve ‘happiness’. Rather it is a description of what I am interested in exploring and experiencing. FLOW.

    I describe FLOW as becoming aware of when and how information is synchronised with individual purpose, and that when these align there is a psychic energy that moves effortlessly through the body, creating a sense of connection externally.

    Johnny once spoke about this as his experience of surfing his first tube. Time seemed to stop and the feeling was euphoric. His body and movements were in connection to the shape and curve of the wave, to the board, the wetness. Every shade and colour was detailed, and all his senses were alive. He described a silence and stillness as the water tunnelled around him. He was synchronised with his emotions, which manifested into a physical extension of purpose – to ride the tube. An optimal experience - FLOW.

    Trentham Race Course 1998 – Aotearoa Traditional Maori Performing Arts Festival was another optimal experience where FLOW existed within a number of individuals. I remember walking backstage before performing in front of thousands and the wind was whipping up little mini maelstroms. These whirl winds reflected my emotions. As we began to walk onstage I experienced a sense of collective purpose, the wind seemed to ease along with my emotions. Almost as if the universe itself supported this synchronicity. Again, every detail was clear. And although we were in full physical flight, and there was trumpeting applause, I experienced stillness, and complete satisfaction. Happiness.

    Perhaps the universe does encourage FLOW. Perhaps FLOW happens all the time and in order to continue to achieve it, we need to consciously unify our purposes.

    Perhaps. Are you interested?
