More about Jamie

Jamie's knowledge is underpinned by her upbringing (Ngāti Maniapoto, Ngāti Tūwharetoa and Ngāti Hikairo), where from childhood, her grandmother, nana and great-aunts would use rongoā for healing.

After becoming a mother and being influenced by her work in a kindergarten that followed a Rudolf Steiner holistic approach to education and living, her passion for rongoā was reignited. Completing formal studies, Jamie has achieved the Appreciation for Rongoā Māori course and a Diploma of Rongoā Māori through Te Wānanga o Aotearoa. 

Jamie has also trained in Romiromi, a holistic form of spiritual bodywork. As an avid learner, she is currently studying with Te Whare Wānanga o Awanuiārangi, in a Kai Oranga course that teaches Food Sovereignty and Hua Parakore (Māori Organics).

By booking on this experience your contribution helps Sanctuary Mountain® continue to protect the rare and endangered species that live wild on Maungatautari. Jamie also leads our popular Rongoā Rākau tours.
