Practice in our sessions.

Commit to our weekly sessions, our modules, and the forum - really looking forward to seeing our relationships grow.

A huge mihi to Gemma, Anaru and Rochelle for a fabulous face to face day. From the moment we arrived til the moment we left there was a surreal feeling of openness, connectedness, willingness to take a risk, learn and grow together.  From my perspective this was due in part to some of the following:

  • We had your online welcome;
  • We arrived to a room set up with flexibility, space and choice of seating and groupings;
  • Arrangements on our table gave a distinct New Zealand flavour;
  • Friendly greetings from you all;
  • Enthusiasm of participants;
  • Very relaxed, welcoming feel;
  • First session - the web of connectedness was amazing.  So many connections were made to set the scene for growing these throughout the day. 
Thanks to all the participants!  What an exciting journey we are on!
