What is a karakia?
For myself, the karakia has set in motion whakapuake te mauri o te reo, like an opening in the understanding of the life force within Māori language.
I am wondering about karakia as a lived experience. For a karakia to be so part of practise that the essence of it imbudes thoughts and actions. The life force of the karakia, contributing to change in practice, where perhaps we can start seeing new possibilities.
Does your work place have a karakia / prayer?
