Wellbeing in Aotearoa : Te Whare Tapa Whā

Increasingly there is a recognition around the world that Wellbeing is a holistic concept.

Whilst there’s some excellent resources such as 5 Ways To Wellbeing and PERMA, here at Lifehack we feel like we need to acknowledge what Wellbeing means in Aotearoa. As we’ve travelled around the country, time and again we’ve found that the model that makes most sense for us to work with, is Te Whare Tapa Whā.

So after we adopted Te Whare Tapa Whā as central to our work, we were on the look out for great images to explain the concept when we were giving talks, and meeting communities around the country – but we were left stumped. So we’re delighted to unveil our first poster version!
