"Wisdom of the Four Winds"
is a unique boxed set consisting of a comprehensive guide book by Barry Brailsford with explanatory text and readings, accompanied by 50 cards. The art work was done by Cecilie Okada.

At present we are displaying three cards to introduce the concept and show a little of what they have to offer. The Wisdom Cards are not predictive, they merely allow us to pause and look at our situation with the help of the kaitiaki or guide who arrives by chance, through the blind pulling of a card.

At this moment an expert is designing a program we can put on line. It will offer all 50 cards in a way that allow chance to come into play. Then you will hear a reading of your card and have the opportunity to consider what it offers you at that moment.

That's in the future but meanwhile get acquainted with Kahu the Hawk, Kauri the mighty Tree and Kea the clever Mountain Parrot.

This beautiful gift is available from Stoneprint.


Everything and everyone has a spiritual home. In the Maori world of Polynesia it is known as our Tu-ranga-wae-wae, ‘the place where we stand tall.’ That ‘sanctuary’ may or may not be our birthplace, as its power is of many realms.

It offers a special strength and nurture. Sometimes we are called to stand in its wonder, to speak to our mountain and our river, to remember the ancestors and honour once more our dreams. We can feel its presence in any place at any time, for we carry ‘the standing tall place’ within.

Hope is all around us
Hear its voice in the call of the night
See its colours in the rainbow's light
Touch its magic in the hand of the child
Taste its wonder in the fruit of the tree
Know its spirit in the joy of the free
Trust its message and learn to be
Hope is all around us

I decided to share 3 of the 50 wisdomcards on this blog....
