Canaan believes there can be a greater opportunity to not only enhance your wairua but also to develop your physical and mental wellbeing through mātauranga Māori processes. Such as to emulate the processes our tupuna followed, whether through karakia, whakapapa, haka, waiata, hikoi or hoe waka.
Canaan enjoys any opportunity to interact with the environment on a physical and spiritual level through mediums such as hiking, paddling, snorkeling, fishing, camping, biking, swimming or running,
PATH is a unique data-gathering process promoting creative and guided visualisation with individuals and whānau (families). It allows whānau to determine and develop their aspirational futures while exploring their ideas in a systematic process. PATH encourages inclusion, diversity and collective input. PATH uses symbols and colour to portray aspirations and dreams, creating powerful cultural imagery, visual and emotional anchoring and active engagement. The core value of PATH is that the whānau develop the measures of success and determine what this success looks like to them.
