4 sides of Māori health

July 12, 2020 1 minute

    Māori health has four sides [taha]: taha whānau [family side], taha tinana [body side], taha hinengaro [mind side] and taha wairua [spirit side].

    These days many focus on taha tinana, but rather as an eye-catching shell than a protective one. Taha hinengaro is the mind that needs no words to speak. Taha whānau is family as a unit. And taha wairua, the spirit that needs no religious beliefs to create links.
