The Warrior's Experience offers a unique invitation for you to connect with your anger and aggression in a safe, grounded container, within a safe environment of brotherhood through the Māori Haka & Ritual Combat. The Haka that we will learn & embody, invites themes that you may be experiencing or suppressing. These themes could be suppressed anger and big emotion, confusion around purpose, disconnection to self which therefore is disconnection to other, clarity on communication & expression, disconnection with your masculine, feminine and inner warrior.
This experience will give you very clear and powerful tools on how to bring expansive awareness & deep presence to all these themes. So that you can step into & embody the dream man you know you are and envision to be

lean into your discomfort zone, in brotherhood

if this you desire deeper connection amongst men


Cyrus Henry

Cyrus Henry is the founder of Tama Taane and is an indigenous Māori, from New Zealand, now residing in Nicaragua, Central Latin America.  

Cyrus has worked all his adult life in the world of entertainment, as a professional dancer, musician and actor.  He trained at UNITEC in New Zealand, studying contemporary dance, worked with New Zealand’s leading dance company Black Grace Dance Company, then relocated to Australia and studied at Brent St School Of Performing Arts in singing, dancing and acting. Cyrus has performed for Sydney’s Opera House, AUS X Factor, has featured on tv commercials such as Toyota and many more.

Straight after his performing arts studies, Cyrus wanted to explore a path in which he could build on the side of his performing arts career. Self development and mindset coaching being a big part of his journey, he knew he wanted to develop a body of work in helping people grow. He had a keen interest in natural healing modalities and spirituality which led him to studying a 2 year Diploma Of Energy Healing at The Awareness Institute in Sydney, Australia. During those 2 years of study he knew he wanted to work with sound, crystals, shamanism and intimately with men

Men’s work. Men’s circles. Men’s personal development. Sacred masculinity. Brotherhood. Men’s empowerment. Cyrus has developed a passion for working with men and realised this passion during his 2 years of study. He repeatedly asked himself “How would I like to show up and serve the world with this work, being unconditionally authentically me?”. The answer to that, was working closely with men, using a spiritual energetic approach and customs that he has learnt from his indigenous cultural upbringing.

Over the last 5 years Cyrus has been honing his skills in coaching & energy work, developing practises on how he will create a space that is unique and powerful to each and every man, to really inspire transformation. Cyrus has created an immersion that is absolutely unique, incorporating customs from his Māori culture such as “Haka”. This haka is called “Te Tangi Pakanga A Te Tangata” meaning “The War Cry Of Man”. Cyrus created this haka specifically for men as a tool for deep emotional release. The intention is to use this powerful expression and war chant as a vehicle to channel the aggression and big emotion that me be reside within. As we learn this haka, we navigate through themes to release deeper layers of our own story attached to these themes. These themes are topics men generally do not talk about such as our internal battles, growth, empowerment, emotions, crying, asking for help, brotherhood and our feminine qualities. Haka combined with spiritual and coaching tools will bring together men of all ages, cultures, sizes and sexuality to embody the heartfelt playful warrior.

“Integrated transformation and radical growth are my true passions. Creating powerful held containers that give permission to any individual who steps foot inside the discomfort to surrender, to be vulnerable, to feel and to build the dream you”
