Laura Shallcrass

Ko Hea rāua ko Ruru: He Takitaro Mārire


This is the story of Hare, who struggles with an un-named mental malady self described as ‘noise’. Noise could be runaway thoughts, voices in Hare’s head, or loud feelings and general anxiety. Hare goes on a journey to try and find a solution. Just when Hare thinks there’s no hope a friend, Ruru, flies calmly down and gives a suggestion.


Hare ultimately feels better after doing three things:

• Talking to someone

• Focusing on breathing

• Connecting to nature

This gentle story is for anybody who suffers from noises, anxiety or loud feelings
