‘Te Whāriki’ is a foundational te ao Māori learning programme aimed at enhancing participants understanding of and ability to integrate te ao Māori into their lives.
The term ‘Whāriki’ in te ao Māori is known as a woven mat and carries profound significance. To some, they represent the interwoven strands of knowledge and time.
Our course, ‘Te Whāriki’, is likened to the intricate art of weaving a ‘Whāriki’, symbolically binding together diverse strands to enhance participants foundational understanding of te ao Māori.
The programme is delivered specifically to corporate leaders for small groups of people up to five. Te Whāriki provides a safe one-on-one learning environment for participants. The programme itself fosters a dynamic environment for participants to share their experiences and collectively deepen their understanding and is heavily wānanga / discussion-based.
We deliver ‘Te Whāriki’ in-house where we come to your organisation or online. The programme spans across six two-hour sessions, however, the length of time for each session can be adapted to suit your specific needs.
