The Maori Course Experience
I will be documenting my experience attending a Māori Healing Course in Auckland, New Zealand. The Māori are the indigenous Polynesian people of New Zealand and their traditions of natural and spiritual healing have been passed down through the generations.
I'll be posting short essays and films before, during, and after the 11-day class to recount both informational and personal stories.
The course, A Journey through the Greenstone Door to Māori Spiritual Wellbeing, is put on by Kawai Purapura in Albany, Auckland. It is a unique training, gathering important Māori elders and healers from across New Zealand and drawing students and practitioners from around the world.
My goal is to honor and express the teachings offered and share the unique experiences of those participating, and I am incredibly stoked for the opportunity to share in such an amazing and significant training and adventure!

My name is Regan.
I'm a person in long-term recovery.
I am on the road (in all the ways!) to document stories of recovery, healing, adventure, and inspiration.
Storytelling is my passion. Courage, the human spirit, and those fighting the good fight of recovery inspire me.
Along my journey I write, film, and laugh at everything I possibly can. And I'd love to share it all with you!
