Beyond Rahui…

Two huge challenges are spreading around the planet- the sickness caused by the Covid-19 Virus, and the liveliness aroused by the healthy Black Lives Matter movement.  Surely we humans can use these two dramatic experiences to shape real changes for our futures together on this tiny, fragile planet?  We’ve been moved by the shifts which […]

Living in Level One …Catching Up with Whanau, Friends and Photos..

Our government’s success in managing Covid-19 has meant we were able to move from Rahui Level 3 to  Level 2 on 14 May, and to Level 1  (life as “normal” except for closed national borders) at midnight on Monday 8 June. Emerging from Rahui Level 3 enabled us to spend a few days of blissful […]

Dementia Auckland

We recently discovered that the new Dementia Auckland organisation is located next door to us in Grey Lynn in the building down the driveway between the two Ockham apartment blocks. Since we have friends and family members dealing with dementia issues (and some of our own anxieties, says Charmaine!), we decided on Friday 5 June […]

Covert Covid Creativity…

Tanya…. The first four weeks of our Rāhui (Lockdown) seem to have whizzed by.  I haven’t completed any of the practical chores on my “to-do” list, but have enjoyed the opportunities to create in unexpected ways. My computer crashed, and it took a week to get it to our Earthsong expert Grant, who fixed it […]

Covid Vibes Day 0

On Thursday 26 March 2020 Aotearoa  went into full lockdown/ rāhui as a nation to try and prevent the spread of the Covid19 Virus.  Basically, that means we must stay at home for at least the next four weeks; we are allowed to walk or cycle in our own neighbourhoods as long as we keep […]
