I'm discovering the beauty of Te Ao Maori: Here's my pepeha - a work in progress...
Ko Tangi Te Keo te māunga
Ko Poneke ki te tonga te moana
Ko iwi katoa tōku iwi
Ko hoa me te whanau tōku hapū
Nō Poneke ahau
Ko Christine rāua ko Michael ōku mātua
Ko Peter tōku ingoa
My mountain is Mt Victoria
My water is the south coast of Wellington
My tribe is all people
My sub-tribe is my friends and family
I am from Wellington
My parents are Christine and Michael
My name is Peter
50% of Kiwis are struggling with mental health and wellbeing. We have among the highest rates of domestic violence in the world. Climate change and child poverty are on the rise.
We're all working so hard, but the way we are working is perpetuating the very problems we are trying to solve!
I believe that we have deeply damaging habits of mind which are driving violence, separation and deep suffering right here in Aotearoa.
Through Heartwork I enable people and organisations to find their heartbeat and access their collective creative potential through play, mindfulness and experiential collaborative learning.
That's a picture and some words. Here's some more of me:
There's so much that I am a part of creating and sharing. I love honest feedback and co-creation - I'd love you to be involved if there's something you resonate with here!
What people have said about co-creating with me
You are more than you know. The intense deep connection, energy and creativity that you have experienced - and from which you've given deep gifts at moments in your life - is possible on a daily basis. I'd love to work with you from the inside out to bring your deeper gifts to the world. Message me on 02040758702 and I'll give you a call to explore what this program would feel like for you to be a part of.
The Tech Between
We tautoko great programmes with beautiful apps that enable participants to develop daily practices and reduce admin time & energy for course providers. My role is Leader, Experience Designer, Strategist & Developer.
We create working and learning environments that make healthy, high performance behaviours the default in sustainable ways. My role is Co-Founder, Designer, Engineer.
Example: what I learn about commitment as co-founder of Limber Office informs my personal relationships and the commitment I bring to mindfulness or web consulting work.
Example: what I learn about communication from writing poetry brings clarity to relationships with the people I work with.
Example: a common problem I experience and notice in other organisations and people is a fear of reaching out for help and support. This is a big part of the high NZ suicide rate - 606 Kiwis last year weren't able to reach out for the support they needed. I've included a requests page here to prototype and model what positive requests for support look like.
Integrity, effort, kindness, mindfulness (and many more values) are central to all aspects of my life.
