"The effects of participating in Araitepō have been both subtle and profound. It has deepened my awareness- of self, of others, and of the context that gives rise to what we see around us. I feel like I walk more gently and more purposefully in the world as a result of participating. It taught me to listen more deeply, and to make room for different questions than before. It brought some of my unhelpful patterns of thinking to the surface and planted seeds that are still having a positive effect four years later."
