Tracking and Polynesian Wayfinding tradition share a same spirit. Tracking and Wayfinding are systems of awareness/skills that allow one to follow something (the track of an animal, a person, a memory, a concept, process of picking Islands out of vast Oceans, etc) with all of your senses as far as you can. It is a process of bonding your energy with the energy of something or someone that you are following. We believe in the deep power of reconnecting to the natural world and integrating the spirit of the teachings of the canoe and Tracking to help us overcome our hurdles as humans. Addictions, emotional trauma, loss, poor diet and health issues, and stress.
