Listening is a layered art, and those layers are an inherent part of traditional storytelling and the approach to wānanga (Māori ‘schools of learning’). Lore, truth and revelation are continually held, awaiting the listener’s arrival, revealed for you and by you in reciprocity. Explore listening through your 12 senses. Practice the art of Mirroring; the potent offering of a person’s story back to them. Open listening doorways - we turn to listening skills that come from Indigenous legacies of receiving a story, story-telling/ guardianship, story release and healing. This course will support your capacity as a guardian of stories, as a relating human, as a communicator and as a creator.

We often turn to spirituality as a crutch while disconnecting from the people or situation at hand. It disguises itself not just by making us feel better in the moment, but the misbelief that it makes us good, helpful humans, healers, and teachers. Perhaps we answer the call to be positive, optimistic, people of power, and change. The irony is that in clinging to spiritual ideals and bypassing the pain at hand, we become unavailable to the world that needs us.

"Haaweatea has done enough work in her
own life to show vulnerability as strength, transparency as a moment's truth
and laughter as necessity."
~ Tiffany H
“Stop. Listen. Feel. Haaweatea is gifted at guiding participants through this process because of her inherent gifts as matakite (intuitive), and over two decades of work as a professional listener. This is a fusion of indigenous ancestry and the psychology of meaning-making and change. I can honestly say there is no better guide or teacher. Participation in her wānanga (courses) have been monumental for me in uncovering what she calls the ‘reverse gift’ of life's challenges.” Donelle Manihera
"It cleared up the past years of my life
to an understanding of myself, which I could embrace like a Heroine! It gave me an orientation for now and in the future."
~ Robbie F
