The following list contains books that have inspired us and contributed to our understanding of life. Creating this list gives us a welcomed opportunity to pay tribute to the authors who have fuelled our passion and satisfied the curiosity of our students for deeper insight into the cultural and spiritual background of MA-URI.
Tamara Hrehoreczak-Stephens, ‘Abraham Kawai’i – A brief history of the man, the kahuna, and kahuna bodywork’. Published in 2012.
THIS is the book we all have been waiting for! It is therefore with much love and appreciation that we pay tribute to Tamara, for her achievements and for her great efforts in continuing Kahu’s work and adding her wisdom to the teachings. It is a beautiful book and one every student of MA-URI will surely treasure. You can order a copy through www.napuaolohe.com as well as through www.amazon.com and www.amazon.co.uk.
Justyna Rychlewska-Suska, ‘MA-URI. Dar Zycia I Moc Kreacji – Wewnetrzna podróz ku swiadomemu poczeciu i zyciu w wolnosci.’ Published in 2012 and at the moment available only in Polish.
The title translates as, ‘MA-URI. The Gift of Life and the Power of Creation – Inner Journey Towards Conscious Conception and Freedom in Life.’ We pay warm tribute to Justyna, our Polish Trainer, for sharing her personal experiences gained in the area of conscious conception. The book explains how she combined the application of MA-URI principles, a deep trust in her own inner knowing and the ability to bring into her life the knowledge of ancient Polynesian traditions. A significant book, indeed! To order a copy of this book send an email to email@example.com.
Katja Fox, ‘MA-URI Prayers to Celebrate the Divine.’ This book is now available. It was printed in October 2013 in Lithuania and launched in sacredness at a blessing ceremony where the umbilical chord between ‘creator and creation’ was cut. The purpose hereof was to acknowledge the ancestors and all spiritual energies that had contributed to the whole process of writing this book. Secondly, the purpose was to now set the book free to travel and become part of the lives and spiritual practices of people around the world. This happened at a Healing Weekend held in Lithuania for a special group of MA-URI students and trainers.
The book sums up what MA-URI is and gives an introduction to the spiritual aspects we give attention in MA-URI, like in the chapters on ‘Why we Pray and seek the Sacred’ and ‘How we Pray and create Beacons of Light’. Each of these chapters are followed by 12 Evening Prayers which illustrate focuses that uplift and inspire us in MA-URI and in our personal lives. In the Epilogue, a glimpse is given of where MA-URI is heading and what insight is ready to be revealed.
The book is made available for purchase at MA-URI workshops held in Europe and in NZ until a distribution system can be organised and put in place. To order a copy of this book you can send an email to the Institute’s address, firstname.lastname@example.org or to one of the Trainers.
