Whakatau te wairua

Whakatau: to decide, settle, prepare, determine, arbitrate, adjudicate.

Wairua: spirit, soul - spirit of a person which exists beyond death. It is the non-physical spirit, distinct from the body and the mauri. To some, the wairua resides in the heart or mind of someone while others believe it is part of the whole person and is not located at any particular part of the body.

“When our inner self is settled / prepared, we can fully engage and enjoy our learning.”
