This is a combined reflective presentation developed from the series of the Chinese and Pacific cultural perspectives workshops that the authors have designed and delivered at Unitec for the Social Practice, Medical Imaging and Bachelor of Nursing classes since 2019 as requested by their class lecturers. Sharing our own experiences and perspectives of our respective cultures at the 2022 ATLAANZ conference, “Toitū te tangata: The whole person”, we position our teaching in our natural environment, the land, and the culture of the land we currently live in and advocate for a mindful education where staff and students are supported to become culturally conscious to best serve the culturally diverse community in Aotearoa New Zealand.
