Whenua to Whenua
---x--- In Maori culture, when a child is born, it is common practice to bury the placenta (ipu whenua) in which the child is born in the earth (whenua)

The placenta and the earth are seen as fulfilling the same role - the same word is used for them both in Maori.
The whenua (placenta) that sustained the baby is given back to the whenua (earth), acknowledging the role of the papatuanuku (earth mother) in sustaining life... touched by the connection with the land everpresent in the culture.

Spent a fascinating evening at the Te Papa museum of Maori and Pacific culture in Wellington. On my way to the south island tomorrow.. #tantra #intimacy #transformation #awakening #tantrayoga #kundalini #eros #spiritualgrowth #consciousrelating #pagan #consciousliving #sacredsexuality #consciousness #divinemasculine #divinefeminine #selfawareness #pussypower #selfworth #binoymiltondsouza #gratitudeattitude #lawofattraction #heart #placenta #tepapa #wellington #gaia #istatribe #maori

Incredibly moving and sobering exhibit at @te_papa - Gallipoli: The Scale of Our War from the endlessly talented @wetaworkshop and Te Papa. If anyone hasn't been to this yet it is an absolute essential duty. #gallipoli #tepapa #anexhibitionlikenoother #anzac
