Zion Tauamiti

Nurturing Wellbeing Amongst Māori Youth

In today’s conversation Rob and Ken are joined by Zion Tauamiti, Samoan born and raised in Christchurch, New Zealand where he currently lives to this day working with young people as a wellness chaplain.

At the age of 33 Zion suffered a cardiac arrest and subsequently went into coma for six days. As a result of this life changing event, Zion was inspired to start an organization called Healing Song Pese Wairua in order work with Maori and Pacific young people with the aim of increasing their well-being that is undergirded by the Māorian values of Whānau which emphasizes connection with family.
