Rhythm Meditations with Deborah Masterson

2:15pm - 4:15pm
Other Kalani - see description

Rhythm Meditation is for anyone wanting to develop
 awareness and deepen understanding of rhythm. Immerse yourself in this form of moving, musical meditation where rhythm is the object of contemplation. People at all levels come together to transform
their relationship to music, to each other, and to life. No instrument required.

During a rhythm meditation, we vocalize, step, and clap simultaneously. Gently held and supported by the group, we weave different rhythms on several levels. Our experience of repeatedly falling into chaos and then re-emerging into a higher level of organization translates naturally into an awareness not only of music, but also of learning and life. Wear comfortable clothes and bring an open mind. Yoga mats are available for your use.


Deborah Masterson, a certified advanced TaKeTiNa rhythm teacher, began to train with the founders, Reinhard and Cornelia Flatischler in 1998 and continues to do so. Her fascination with the mystery and power of rhythm was ignited when, in 1988, she attended a Samulnori (Korean folk drumming) concert. For many years, she concentrated on Korean percussion and dance, both in Honolulu and in Korea. More recently, her explorations have included West African dundun, Cuban and Congolese congas, dumbek, and frame drum. Rhythmfullcircle.com

Adventures in Hawaiian Shamanism with Stewart Blackburn

1:30pm - 3:30pm
Other Kalani - see description


 Adventures in Hawaiian Shamanism is a series of stand-alone classes that explore the esoteric knowledge of Ancient Hawaii. This form of that knowledge is called Huna and comes from the island of Kauai. In these classes we work with the elements, the animals, the plants, and the Spirits for healing and self-knowledge. The guiding principle is Aloha and all that we do is an extension of that principle. We use a Huna-style Shamanic Journey in each class to explore and work with the inner world to help make the outer world a better place.


Stewart Blackburn is a shamanic practitioner and teacher whose focus is on helping people become self-empowered and self-loving. He is an ordained senior teacher (alaka'i) of Aloha International (Huna) who teaches many classes, both at Kalani and online. He is a writer, a counselor, and a healer, and many people have found his book, The Skills of Pleasure, very helpful. He lives quietly in the jungle near Kalani with his dog, Pono.
