Description

Pearls of wisdom – whakataukī – have been gifted from generation to generation as an intrinsic part of the Māori world. As powerful metaphors, they combine analogy and cultural history in the most economical of words. Short and insightful, they take you by surprise, engendering reflection, learning and personal growth.

Mauri Ora links whakataukī to key personal virtues idealised across cultures and generations. The virtues – wisdom, courage, compassion, integrity, self-mastery and belief – stem from the field of positive psychology; the study of how to live a better life.

Illustrated throughout with wonderful photographs from an old world, this book draws on traditional wisdom to provide a recipe for personal effectiveness and leadership, and a rewarding connection of Māori knowledge to contemporary thinking about personal happiness and fulfilment.

  1. Kura Tuhura

    Alsop and Kupenga’s book succintly illustrates core values that most New Zealand Schools incorporate into their Positive Behaviour for Learning policy and procedures. However the language used, combined with the graphic photographs present those values from authentic life experiences that most Maori can relate to.The width, breadth and depth of values from a Maori perspective often becomes mired in translanguaging from English into Maori. This book offers a concise language for those values with whakatauki to breakdown and explain actions that exemplify those values. I found it valuable, endearing and easy to use.
