Mauri is the energy and the vibrations for growth of Kai Atua. It is the principal essence of life. It is important to protect the mauri and thus the health of the various elements of your mahinga kai to ensure the quality and integrity of the food it produces is high and that the people who consume it are healthy.
However it is not just enough to protect mauri, Hua Parakore production should enhance it so that the vibrational qualities of mauri strongly resonate within the Kai Atua produced. It is particularly important to enhance the mauri of the soil by enhancing its fertility structure and biological activity.” (Ngā Āhuatanga o Hua Parakore: Resource 2, 2011)
