Learners were able to kilo - to observe with intent, the muliwai, kai, loko iʻa, kahawai, mākāhā, native and non-native plants/species (limu, pōhuehue, mangrove, hau, niu, kukui, kī, and more), tides, mahina, clouds, wind, manu, and their kino.
Participants chose at least one thing to kilo each day and were able to focus on its movements/changes that happened throughout the day. They then had an opportunity to share at the end of the day with the hui.
By doing kilo exercises participants were able to tune in with the ʻāina and identify any imbalances in the ecosystem or why there are changes due to the seasons we are currently experiencing.
