"Tēnā koutou katoa, we have just had the great pleasure of participating in a workshop provided by Wairangi Jones for the graduate students and staff in our clinical psychology training programme.  Matua Jones was warm and approachable, and immediately got the group actively involved, interacting and learning some basic tikanga, as well as understanding the meaning beneath the tikanga and applying it to our particular needs and roles.  The workshop was well structured and conducted, and left us with some specific learnings (e.g., the meaning and proper conduct of hongi, practice with a waere appropriate to many occasions, and kōrero on storytelling as a way to facilitate connection)”.
