Affirming the Artist Practitioner Researcher
Kiili, Rebecca Kapolei
Educational Perspectives, v49 n1 p49-52 2017
The author's introduction to the field of qualitative research in the EdD program began with analyzing the artistry of a practitioner researcher. Arriving in the space of an emerging artist practitioner researcher has been soulfully synchronistic and life affirming because of the magic the author has experienced in the convergence and alignment of all parts of herself; the conscious self, the knowing self, the intuitive self, and the doing self. The manifestation of the deep desire to feel connected and whole was an experience worth waiting for and worth working through in order to have evolved into the next level of self. That next level of the whole self has been all encompassing and completely accepting of my life experiences, cultural conditioning, labels, stereotypes, similarities, and differences that I have been enculturated in. When writing this article, the author was filled with amazement as as she reflected on how her life experiences have led her to this exact space and time. It has been tremendously transformative in such a short amount of time.
