About

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.

Illustrated with B&W images.
