In Pursuit of The Light
It is within all of us the desire to overcome the darkness in pursuit of the light. To grow, to develop and to be all that we can be.
Inspired by the Māori creation narrative, the children of Ranginui (Sky-father) and Papatuanuku (Earth-mother) lived in darkness until they were desperate for the light. Tane (the god of the forest) had seen the light of the sun shining under the armpit of Rangi, so he consulted with his elder brothers about how they could separate their parents.
