I had the privilege of attending one of Jolie’s workshops this past weekend and what an amazing experience it was. I walked into this workshop with two goals in mind one was to build my knowledge and learn how to heal others and the other is to get to a point where caring for our people isn't bound by systems. Jolie is the real deal and she shared with us amazing knowledge and skill that by far achieved the first goal, but even more she gave me the ability to visualize the second goal as achievable. The biggest surprise this weekend brought was the amount of personal growth and self healing I got. My future is much clearer. Jolie asked what our expectations were for the course...but I didn't really set any because I was happy to soak up whatever she was willing to offer me and well her knowledge and skill by far surpass anything I would have set. E te rangatira, Jolie.

Since the Manawa Ora workshop and I have grown so much and continuing. It was a powerful weekend of learning the gifts of our tupuna. Jolie Davis mihi aroha ano for sharing these gifts. Wahine maa thank you all for holding this space with aroha manaakitanga wairua.

I love the realness and rawness of Jolie and her team. Combined with their genuine desire to share knowledge and from a place of aroha makes the investment of time and coin more than worthwhile. There is no pandering or fluffing around, it's straight to the bones ;) I went with the intention to learn and came out the other end with so much more than knowledge. I look forward to the next one.

I attended one of these beautiful workshops and would definately recommend to everyone! I thought I was going to learn how to heal and help others, but not only did I learn how to do that, I was also healed myself. I have suffered a lower back injury for about 4 years and im only 23 so I have had doctors tell me its a spine problem, its curvature, its this and its that. I sometimes wouldn't be able to walk or sleep at all. Couldn't afford to pay $60 a session at the physio on my student budget so I have just learned to live with the pain, like a constant massive headache, day in and day out. So coming into the workshop it didnt even cross my mind that I would be the one to get healing too. And im so so so grateful to have had Jolie, her team and our whanau from the workshop heal me. I wish I could give the kindness and healing that I received in the weekend back to them. But I know our wairua planned this wananga a long time ago; to heal, learn and help each other.

I've been privileged enough to have recently experienced Manawa Ora Mirimiri. She is a truly gifted healer in her treatment for injury and pain. I've seen so many healers and specialists for my chronic jaw pain which I've suffered from for many years, and she basically wiped it out in one session. She doesn't want to see you over and over again, her genuine and authentic goal is to fix the problem in front of her. I appreciate her very direct and "no-fluff" approach to healing, just going straight to the point, and doing what needs to be done. In terms of the workshop, I never considered myself a 'healer' so wasn't sure if it was for me. But it most definitely was…I struggle to find the words to truly convey what you experience here as it is so 'experiential' and a massive eye-opening, transformational journey. Not your average workshop for sure, there are some deep lessons and amazing shifts that will happen and I'm going to do it again! If you are interested in healing (for yourself and others), spirituality, Te Ao Maori and connecting with like minded people, this workshop is for you.

I attended this 2 day workshop in Brisbane and being Maori away from home It absolutely grounded me back to my roots. My intuition is heightened, my connection to Papatuanuku and Tangaroa is amplified and I feel peaceful clarity over things that had really really been stressing me.
I’ve been going through a shift the last 6 months and I feel like the physical mahi I had on my body worked out all the past,negative stagnant energy like you would wring out a dishcloth. I feel so much gratitude, grounding and resolute motivation in my future decisions and pathway and my body feels released from toxins. I had a dramatic and magical experience and learned so much from Jolie, Rob, Tux and Tony that I have brought back to my whanau and everyday life on the GoldCoast.
Nga mihi Jolie and whanau for reawakening and reaffirming the magic that is Manawa Ora Mirimiri

The workshop is amazing. Jolie and her Whanau are beautiful, caring and supportive. The other participants are awesome. The space is safe for everyone to learn at their own level and in their own time.
I highly recommend for learning new skills, healing yourself and healing others, meeting amazing new people and just listening to all the mana knowledge experience that Jolie shares.

Jolie has provided a space where people who have little or no understanding of Mirimiri can come and learn alongside those with a much deeper practice. She presents the content in a way that is both approachable and in depth.
The presentation of cultural knowledge and background compliments and prepares you for the transition to hands-on practice. There is appropriate time dedicated to demonstrating some of more involved/advanced healing while also presenting the basics that you begin to use right away. And perhaps most importantly, the workshop and practice of Mirimiri will help to rebalance your connection to your body and your spirituality.
This workshop is artfully crafted and was a privilege to attend. Come with an open heart and mind and you will not be disappointed!

Karawhiua!! If you feel the slightest bit of interest or intrigued to do a Manawa Ora workshop DO IT!!! Since I attended a workshop in Kapiti, the impact it has had on my life has been amazing!! Jolie and her roopu are amazing and make you feel comfortable while stepping out of your comfort zone; could not recommend these workshops or Jolie enough!

Soul filling, mind blowing experience! Take the journey to find the real you. Jolie and her team are a wealth of knowledge, culture and healing. A weekend spent with this amazing team will change your life. So glad I made the trip to attend the workshop. I have met some amazing people and have grown my understanding of what it means to be a wicked wahine healer. No BS, just real knowledge, compassion and understanding.
I Recommend to anyone wanting to get real with life and take steps forward to start a real journey from the heart.
