Welcome to Titipounamu – Study & Joy

Titipounamu is the smallest bird in Aotearoa New Zealand.
It is so small that it is easily overlooked and its voice is so high pitched that some people are struggling to hear it. Sometimes these little birds are put into the category of wrens but then, again, they are said to be absolutely unique when it comes to any other living bird in the world.
Ancient European fables are dedicated to the little wrens. The tiny wren that outwits all other birds and managed to become king of the birds. The Brothers Grimm wrote down one version of this story on the wren, the “Zaunkoenig”.

Titipounamu – Study & Joy has been set up to motivate and inspire.
We offer:

  • articles / input for your daily life
  • resources of different kinds
  • online day retreats
  • online workshops/seminars/presentations.
  • a hub for featured artists

You might like to widen your horizon, learn new skills or study but don’t want to pass exams and prepare for a degree – or maybe you are just not sure if you are able to commit yourself to participate in a set number of courses.

Titipounamu – Study & Joy offers you the freedom to pick your courses, seminars or retreats when you like. You don’t have to commit yourself to years of study. You can start small.
If you see an advertisement for a course you are interested in but you can’t join on that particular day, please let us know and we will see if it is possible to offer the event again at a different time.

Great things are not done by impulse
but by a series of small things brought together.
