Ko Hea rāua ko Ruru: He Takitaro Mārire
This te reo Māori edition of Hare & Ruru: A Quiet Moment, Ko Hea rāua ko Ruru: He Takitaro Mārire, is the story of Hare, who struggles with an un-named mental malady self described as ‘noise’. Noise could be runaway thoughts, voices in Hare’s head, or loud feelings and general anxiety. Hare goes on a journey to try and find a solution. Just when Hare thinks there’s no hope a friend, Ruru, flies calmly down and gives a suggestion.
Also available in English here.
Hare ultimately feels better after doing three things:
• Talking to someone
• Focusing on breathing
• Connecting to nature
This gentle story is for anybody who suffers from noises, anxiety or loud feelings
