For last 2 years I tried two different Rātaka styles and this year I went back to this size and the set up within works for me - it has a busy and regular use, hard cover great because in and out of bags - and can lean on it to write, fits in my bag better :-) . Good size for writing in on within both columns, love the karakia and whakataukī set up, yearly calendars in a good part of the pukapuka. Binding has stayed quite firm. The blank pages have proven very useful. Love the monthly view, plenty of space to write. Beginning to utilise the ōku whāinga and ōku whakamara, ōku whakawhetai a little more often now, keep those coming especially the kōrero at the bottom of the day pages, very remindful. The new colours are great and also easier to spot within a bag or basket full of other books. He tino rawe ēnei rātaka! Ngā mihi mahana!
E mihi ana ki a koutou,
Tino rātaka te katoa. Pai rawa atu ngā wāhanga o te rātaka! Ngawari noa atu ki te whai hoki.
Ka ahu ake au ki te tau 2024 i tēnei wā ahakoa, tū nei te kaupeka o Ngahuru.
Every year I get a new Rātaka which I use as a journal and to map the Moon cycles. I also am into astrology so I put the astrology chart into the Rātaka for each New Moon and Full Moon along with Equinox and Sostices. Keep up the good work
I love how the rataka sits flat on the desk.
Having the year at a glance running across the bottom from the left page across the right page would be helpful.
As always LOVE my purchase…. Helps me stay organised and connected to my culture… love that it encourages me to stop and feel… but also look for my gratitude in life 🥰 always my go to every year
This is the third year I have used a Tuhi Daily Planner and I don't think that I could function with out one :)
Firstly, I'm a self-confessed stationery geekologist! My yearlong ritual starts from the moment I absorb myself in the much-anticipated unwrapping, feeling, smelling flicking through and absorbing the reo in my new Rātaka A4. Secondly, My life/work revolves around the maramataka so I record names below each phase in the front-page images to refer to. I use the month view almost daily and the notes at the sides for planning reminders. In the dailies I plan reminders and also track my energy levels often to compare them to the maramataka just as our ancestors would make similar reflections. The storage pouch is filled with precious pieces. As a reo Māori speaker, I appreciate the effort that's gone into the Rātaka so much!
Thank you to the team!
This is my 3rd year ordering planners and my first year with the weekly planner. I am really enjoying the layout and use it everyday.
Love using this diary. I use it for work, home, kids school stuff etc. Great seeing the full week so I can see what's happening at a quick glance. Would love to see it as a landscape set-up and have the top page as the week's diary and the bottom page for notes.
Love the language notes and learning as well :)
Absolutely love the diary, plenty of room to write in. The karakia etc in the front comes in handy but is also useful for increasing my te reo.
A beautiful diary that is very easy to use. This is my first one but I will be getting another one every year from now on. I love the karakia in the front are very helpful in everyday settings and for expanding karakia knowledge, as well as the māramataka knowledge and use of te reo Māori throughout the book. Highly recommend.
This is my second year using a these Rātaka, and it is as amazing as when I first bought one!
This rātaka is honestly amazing! Everything is so well thought out - from space to write notes each day, having a monthly overview page to the amazing whole year page at the start! I also love all the communication i te reo Māori and information about maramataka. I love it all! I've been getting these for a few years now and I love the new look - so bright and happy!!
These Rātaka are great. I've been purchasing these for years now, for myself and as gifts for whānau & friends. The only dilemma I have each year is which colour I will select.
I usually never leave reviews but I was so impressed by this planner! So well thought out and has everything plus more than expected
Great communication regarding the purchase.
Nice solid diary that has helped me to improve my te reo Māori (I'm just a beginner). I love that I have karakia on hand for when I need it in meetings. It also allows me to have my simple mihi to guide me for the times when I freeze or get nervous about saying it.
Loving the new colours and have always enjoyed the content..Just what I need every year so keep them coming.
Being able to align my life around the maramataka (as a beginner) with this Planner has been miharo. The karakia, waiata, and Marama guide is awesome! Ka pai 🤌
