Rongoā Mauri Healing

I invite you on a transformational journey of connecting directly with rākau (plants) from the heart of the inner being.

Plant Attunement

Are you ready for an attunement?

The first plant provides you with an attunement to receive and hold higher light or mauri.

You will learn more about mauri and plant attunement as you move deeper in to the ngahere.

Nga mihinui for your interest in Rongoā Mauri.


My name is Joanne Hakaraia-Olson. I am a Māori wahine born and raised in Ōtaki, Aotearoa. I am tangata whenua of of this land. The Tararua ranges, Ōtaki and Waitohu rivers raised me. 

The founding of RAU KAWA ~ Rongoā Mauri Wānanga came from a calling to work with the indigenous plants of Aotearoa. I have dedicated my life to working with and studying plants.

Our trees and ferns hold the DNA of millions of years. This is mauri and it is a powerful and potent rongoā not just from a physical state but primarily within the esoteric realms.

I share this mātauranga with people like you on the journey of understanding how the mauri of nature can help you fully embody your soul’s purpose.

Are you ready to attune to the mauri of rākau and walk deeper into the ngahere?
