One River - Behind the name, inspired by a combination of a move out of Auckland City and a return to her roots in the Waikato - Coromandel Jodi lives with her family next to the majestic Ohinemuri river. The proximity to nature truly has an impact on her everyday life. Jodi was also deeply moved by the divine presence of the Ganges river in India on her travels and the belief that the river is alive, in worship of purification.
This Whakataukī sums it up beautifully:
E rere kau mai te Āwanui, Mai i te Kāhui maunga ki Tangaroa. Kō au te Āwa, kō te Āwa kō au.
“The river flows from the mountains to the sea, I am the river the river is me”.
