A Hawaiian perspective on holographic epistemology
Mā Te Rae affords us the space to dive into the depth of our collective mōhiotanga! Let us use this time well to share in the qualities of our tinana, hinengaro and wairua worlds we know are present and now must be clear about. This talk will introduce fundamental principles of a world-wide awakening via Indigenous epistemology and its linkages with post-quantum realities and insights. Measurement, Reflection, Witnessing – come and recognize the lessons you are already working through with regard to Evaluation and Assessment. Now, let us simply be rigorous, coherent, and joyful about how we are going to express this in a world that needs our clarity.
