Nau mai ki tēnei Paetukutuku o Wairua Ora - Welcome to the Wairua Ora Website. 

This website is dedicated to those of us who are wanting to learn more and understand the significance and power of forgiveness.   I know personally how the power of forgiveness can revolutionize your life. Forgiveness is the release of resentment or anger.  Firstly forgiveness is a process, meaning that it takes time and isn't always easy.  To forgive someone means making a conscious effort to let go of something hurtful that happened to you by releasing negative thought patterns, anger, resentment or pain.  By engaging in this emotion-focussed process, you are making an active choice to no longer suffer from the harm that was done to you.  is

Forgiveness is vitally important for the mental health of those who have been victimized. It propels people forward rather than keeping them emotionally engaged in an injustice or trauma. Forgiveness has many benefits, research shows that forgiveness elevates mood, enhances optimism, and guards against anger, stressanxiety, and depression.


This website and the online programmes offered outlines the fundamentals of forgiveness and provides the spiritual and psychological tools to acknowledge and process feelings that may have held you back from fulfilling your greatest potential.   


My hope is that all of us are able to realise that we are all struggling in some way and that each of us can be a force of compassion, empathy, understanding and love in another persons life.

Kia ora, hello, my name is Te Aorangi Harrington.  I am a healing and forgiveness teacher, an Apotoro Rehita, a Registered Apostle of the Ratana Church as well as a self-published author, and motivational speaker.  On top of all that I am a dedicated husband and proud husband of of four tamariki.  

For a long time I have been avid educator and a dedicated practitioner of breathing, prayer and forgiveness. 

Forgiving yourself and others is essential for spiritual growth.  Forgiveness involves honesty, courage, self-reflection and the ability to listen closely.  


Practicing forgiveness has had a huge number of benefits in my life.  Forgiveness has helped release me to reach a new level of purpose, vision, creativity, vitality and intimacy with others.  

What I do know for sure is that forgiveness is essential if we are wanting to grow into the fullness of the person God created us to be.  Forgiveness is truely the best gift you can give yourself. 

Are you ready to make a life-changing investment in your personal healing, strength and well being?  I look forward to helping you find inspiration and help you on your own pathway to forgiveness. 


Wairua Ora has been designed to awaken our best selves and to help guide us to discovering a deeper connection to source, to others as well as the world around us.  Wairua Ora offers two online programmes. 


The first is the Wairua Ora Healing and Forgiveness Programme which teaches you how to forgive yourself and others but most importantly I teach you how to free yourself from feelings of resentment, anger and revenge and live a life that is fulfilling and purposeful. 

The second online programme is a transformational journey of self-discovery.  It teaches people how to empower those that are struggling with trauma by creating new mindsets and behaviours as well as learning coping strategies and skills in keeping themselves and their whanau safe as well as building long lasting loving relationships.

"I came to Te Aorangi as I was facing alot of problems in my life. I felt comfortable with Te Aorangi right from the start.  I found it easy to open up to him and share my pains and hurts.   I felt no judgement from him.  Te Aorangi taught me how to let go of the anger I held towards others and move beyond my depression and bitternesss"
