Invigourating whakapapa

24-26 June 2016

For some whakapapa may be genealogy, for others it is a connection to history. It is all of these things and more. It is a complex idea and at times it is untranslatable.

To simplify - it is the pu rakau, a story of the inter-relationships between people. As a relational framework, it affirms our cultural identity. It is a means through which we can place ourselves
in the world and in relationship to each other. Whakapapa embraces the complexity of relationship, and recognises within us our obligations and accountabilities.

In this workshop we will explore whakapapa and the meaning this has for us in Aotearoa NewZealand in 2016.

Friday 24 June: 7.00pm – 9..00pm
Saturday 25 June: 9.30am – 5.30pm
Sunday 26 June: 9.30am – 5.00pm
VENUE: Level One, 35 Victoria St., Wellington City
FEE: $300.00 (inc GST) Some places are available at a reduced rate

Sheryl Horomona-Gardyne has been drawn by the mysteries of life and our journeys that are immersed within whakapapa and narrative stories. All that exists in the world seems to be in our indigenous narratives. This intrigues her and invites her to explore them more deeply as she trains to be certified as a psychodramatist. She is prompted to ask how can our interpretations be integrated utilizing past, current and imagined understanding of our narratives.
Sheryl is an advanced psychodrama trainee with the CITP.
