Poetry in Motion: Weaving Words with Movement

1:00pm - 4:00pm
Other Kalani - see description

Take a leap into a new, stimulating and healthy way to explore your poetic flow. Add words to your dance repertoire, and find a new way to tap into the poetry that dances within you. “We’ll flex not only our movement muscles, but our ability to pull descriptive words from our subconscious and string them into dance-inspired poetry,” says instructor Lisa Alpine.

This workshop incorporates several poetry and movement exercises, such as “dialogue duets” and solo dances with “spontaneous witness” writing. “We’ll talk about how to let the words flow unencumbered onto the paper,” says Lisa, “and then find “hot spots” that can be condensed into poetry.” No previous dance or poetry writing experience is necessary. This is a fun class that ANYONE can enjoy!

About Lisa Alpine:
Lisa Alpine has been teaching dance as a healing art form for over 25 years at retreat centers around the world. She has worked with thousands of students in group and private workshop settings and is known for her intuitive ability in assisting people in opening up their bodies in order to free their expressive nature. She has studied directly with Gabrielle Roth, Emilie Conrad and other master teachers and shamans. Lisa is also an award-winning writer and author of the narrative nonfiction story collections Wild Life: Travel Adventures of a Worldly Woman and Exotic Life: Travel Tales of an Adventurous Woman (Best Women’s Adventure Memoir BAIPA Book Awards). She is the winner of many awards including Best Travel Story of the Year 2014 Solas Silver for Fish Trader Ray. Find out more at www.lisaalpine.com.

Damanhur: An Experiment in Community with Damanhur resident Shama Viola

8:00pm - 10:00pm
Other Kalani - see description

Damanhur is a Spiritual EcoCommunity nestled in the hills of Northern Italy that promotes a culture of peace and holistic sustainability through solidarity, respect for the environment, arts, and education.

It is a collective dream transformed into reality thanks to the creative power of positive thought. Its philosophy is based on action, optimism, and upon the idea that every human being lives to leave something of themselves to the others and to contribute towards the growth and evolution of the whole of humanity.

Damanhur is a living laboratory actively manifesting this dream. Reawakening requires the use of our free will to consciously choose to live each experience life places on our path; to conquer habits, act without dependence on external forces, share dreams and the work necessary to achieve them. In this way, every person can m ake contact with the spiritual energies within to reconnect memories which lead to full awareness of one's true nature.

Every year thousands of people visit Damanhur to experience the social model and study the philosophy, but what sets Damanhur apart from other eco and spiritual communities is the Temples of Humankind. Often called the "Eighth Wonder of the World," the Temples were dug by hand from the stone mountain by the people of Damanhur.

Dedicated to the divine nature of humanity, the Temples of Humankind is a three dimensional book which recounts the history of Humanity across multiple planes of existence. The Temples are more than a work of art - they are a path of reawakening the Divine Spark in each one of us.

About Shama Viola:
Shama Viola is a Citizen of Damanhur who was living in Kauai and Big Island before moving there. She has spent the past thirteen years participating in Damanhur’s esoteric traditions and practical approach to sacredness, rituals, and conscious living. She has created a uniquely powerful and beautiful divination system using Damanhurian's ancient symbols. This is her first visit back to Hawai‘i in thirteen years.

Modern Ahupuha'a, The Next Step

1:00pm - 4:00pm
Other Kalani - see description

Puna, now is the time to take "The Next Step."

Join us for the most important permaculture collaboration our district has seen, as we explore, together, how to create modern ahupuaʻa, and share the abundant knowledge we have in Puna.

This initiative involves all of the key leaders in permaculture and sustainability in Puna: it is co-stewarded by Kalani and Hawaiian Sanctuary, and actively supported by Laʻakea, the Keliihoomalu ʻOhana in Kalapana, many of Puna's local permaculturists, and financially supported by the County of Hawaiʻi through the stewardship of Greggor Ilagan. The collaboration to put this initiative together is unprecedented.

On Saturday, August 16th, the kickoff will feature a dynamic talk story with 
Hunter Heaivilin, who will lay down the framework for the Modern Ahupuhaʻa. Enjoy networking with other permaculturalists over pupus, bean-to-bar hand made chocolates, and a closing potluck, celebrating the abundance of Puna.

Come to this event with your ideas to share on what the Modern Ahupuhaʻa means to you. The goal of the Modern Ahupuaʻa Permaculture Series is to gather knowledge, practices and social strategies to remember and share our best resources.

It is time for Puna to collaborate and build this "Next Step" together. Save the third Saturday of each month for this valuable time together, as we learn and grow our modern ahupuaʻa, together. Community Arts Programming is one of the most significant contributions Kalani makes to our local community. 

Speaker Bio:
Hunter Heaivilin holds a degrees in Tropical Forest Ecosystem and Agroforestry Management, and Sustainable Community Development. He has worked and taught on projects throughout Hawaii, the Caribbean, Southeast Asia, and South America. He is lead designer at his consultancy firm Pono Permaculture and the coordinator of the Oahu Farm to School Network.

"Reclaiming All Your Lost Pieces" Workshop with Stewart Blackburn

9:00am - 4:30pm
Other - see description

In many ways the spiritual journey is a matter of reintegrating all the big and little pieces of ourselves that we seem to have broken away from. In this workshop we explore ways that traditional societies have dealt with this and practice some of those techniques. We will also look at this phenomenon from a more modern approach and use other techniques to bring ourselves back into glorious wholeness.

He has been teaching Huna (Hawaiian shamanism) at Kalani for over 5 years and has a private practice of healing and counseling nearby. He is the author of The Skills of Pleasure: Crafting the Life You Want and dozens of articles on shamanism, pleasure, and consciousness. His warm, caring style of teaching makes inner self-exploration fun, challenging, and ultimately highly rewarding. Visit http://stewartblackburn.com/ for more information.

Hawaiian Culture Series with Alan Robert Akana

8:00pm - 9:30pm
Other Kalani - see description

Kalani's monthly Hawaiian Culture Events provide a unique forum where Hawai`i and its peoples can come together and share cultural knowledge, customs, and aloha to all willing to receive.

These events feature a different Hawaiian cultural practitioner who speaks and shares 'ike (wisdom) through talk story, hō`ike`ike (demonstration), or hana`ana (performances).

Event Description: 
When Alan Akana realized he had missed the gift of hearing many of his family’s stories, his search for his history became a gift to all his readers. The Volcano is Our Home introduces us in a very personal way to the influences that shaped Hawaii from an isolated group of islands inhabited by remarkable people with a unique and beautiful culture into the tourist mecca known today by travelers from all over the world. The author takes you to the real Hawaii, so that you may walk these islands with new understanding of the lost way of life of those who have gone before. You will journey over 250 years with a Hawaiian family, guided by their connection to the land, each other and a rich spiritual realm.You will join them on the slopes of Kilauea Volcano as they confront the arrival of each new wave of change—from Captain Cook to the missionaries, to the overthrow of the kingdom, to the 50th State, to the 21st century.

Alan Akana is one of the current generation of Hawaiians who has perfected the art of “talking story.” —Gail Larsen, Founder of Real Speaking and Author of Transformational Speaking: If You Want to Change the World, Tell a Better Story

Bio:
Alan Robert Akana was born in Palo Alto, CA. He earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in philosophy from Westmont College (Santa Barbara, CA) and Master of Divinity and Doctor of Ministry degrees from Fuller Theological Seminary (Pasadena, CA).

He is an ordained minister in the United Church of Christ and has served churches in Hawaii, Montana, Utah, Texas and California. He is an accomplished artist and has extensive experience providing fundraising counsel to nonprofit organizations. Dr. Akana enjoys writing, watercoloring, running, hiking, traveling, and spending time with his son Palani.

He is a descendant of the proud and courageous people who lived on the slopes of Kilauea Volcano.

He lives on the Island of Kauai and may be contacted at alanrobertakana@gmail.com.
