Ko Benita Tahuri ahau

I am a descendant of Ngāti Kahungunu ki te Wairoa and your Kaitiaki Guide , Coach and Teacher for my online programmes.

Thank you for allowing me to be a part of your next incredible chapter towards removing barriers and blocks in life, love or business that stop you from stepping into your best self and achieving your goals. 

This video is a snap shot on one of the many I have facilitated for people who are ready to clear the blocks deep within, the unconscious programming that automatically plays without even conscious thought. So, its your turn now to join me in this sacred special place and time to remove the fear of whatever it is and delete it forever as an issue in your life. 

Welcome to Cut Cleanse Clear the Fear with me you Kaitiaki

As I sit like an open book reflecting on a life that has been full of turbulent early chapters I start to recall the pain, strain and struggle of a girl, a woman destined for more but plagued from early trauma. 

What a  hell of a life journey and chapters it’s been -  talk about from DARKNESS to LIGHT to Free to Fly... check this lot out just the higlights!

Finally BANG!!!!!! Hit the wall just one too many times and sometimes the FLOOR and even resorted to HIDING in the wardrobe!

But in perspective I have five incredible grown children and four grandchildren and now in a place of passion, love, light and compassion nurtured from my personal story. We will come back to that. What I will say is this.

The miriad of qualifications experience skill and expertise I have now absolutely grounds my practice. 

My Vision is to leave a legacy of innovation, health and imagination.

My Mission is to help 100,000 people take action to create unlimited natural energy that awakens the invisible forces within that will lead them to their full power.

How I am doing this? 

Utilising the talk of the ancient knowledge holders and the latest accelerated change technologies, I provide online and face to face and bespoke opportunities for change, and I am just getting started. 

So, that will come later for now I will take you on a visual journey of the woman I am now and snippets into a life that was destined to be as long as I had the courage to stop, heal and turn everything inwards to walk the journey to health wellness, love and inspiration. 


We will start here with Waka Huia this was filmed and went live to Māori TV earlier this year. It takes a look at my work as a Hypno Activist Healer and shares my story. 

Grab a cuppa if you want to know more about who I am and what I do join me for the next 27 minutes here. 

A Leader, strategist, educator, tender rebel, compliant activist.

I see the future, and I plan and act strategically to achieve results in that future—for my whānau, for me, and for any kaupapa, project, or role that I am a part of. 

When I look back on my life, that’s what I see.  I didn’t realise it at the time, but I was very strategically planning for a future that would keep my children safe and looked after.  Through challenges, relationships, study, developing my career, and all the ups and downs of raising a whānau, I keep that vision strong and it saw us through.  I wanted to and I have ensured that my children were looked after, strong, confident, knew themselves, passionate, had a place in the world, and had the skills to live that passion.

Well, blow me away, these same attributes, skills, qualifications and attitude has it has now surpassed any survival mode and thrown me into a life that I choose. I am at a place I can truly be Free to Fly and excited for all that is ahead for me  in life, in love and in business. 

To see this all in one place really makes me feel humbled and grateful to have not only survived but now thrive from a life of chaos to a life of innovation, health and inspiration. 

Just because I also share with you some of the achievements in my life and now bless me with the opportunity to share care and support others in their life journey to their best life.
