TigmonkTigmonk is a 32 year old modern day Mystic currently Living in Pahoa, HI. His greatest joy is in sharing meaningful Insight & Wisdom with small groups of Sincere Individuals who seek a Sacred Truth. His Teachings go beyond mere intellect, and reach deep into the Heart; making it quite clear that real liberation from suffering & conflict, is a journey that begins and ends with our most Sincere Self.

He considers this unfolding to be an Explosion of Love, or a Blooming of the Heart, a natural occurrence that stems from a genuine desire to know what is True about the nature of Self & Reality. He offers this warning to those who dare enter this space of exploration: "I am here to peek inside the dream and set fire to the illusion of you, so that You might see clearly the nature of the Infinite You."

Claim Your Personal Power Now! Workshop with Stewart Blackburn

9:00am - 4:30pm
EMAX

Description:

Personal power has to do with using our intention and our free will effectively. Unfortunately, most of us have not been shown how to do this well.

In this workshop we will dive into what true power is, who has it, and what it takes to get it. We will spend time working with the Four Elements of Power, how we unconsciously undermine our own power, and learning how to focus our power in order to influence the world.

We are all much more powerful than we know; we simply have to take up that power and use it knowledgeably.

Facilitator:

Stewart Blackburn is a modern shaman whose work centers on self-empowerment and the importance of becoming fully who one is. 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.

Great Films for a Great Cause: Babies

8:00pm - 10:00pm
EMAX

The Great Film:  
 
The adventure of a lifetime begins… Directed by award-winning filmmaker Thomas Balmès, from an original idea by producer Alain Chabat, Babies simultaneously follows four babies around the world – from birth to first steps. The children are, respectively, in order of on-screen introduction: Ponijao, who lives with her family near Opuwo, Namibia; Bayarjargal, who resides with his family in Mongolia, near Bayanchandmani; Mari, who lives with her family in Tokyo, Japan; and Hattie, who resides with her family in the United States, in San Francisco. Re-defining the nonfiction art form, Babies joyfully captures on film the earliest stages of the journey of humanity that are at once unique and universal to us all.   

 
The Great Cause:
 
Vision:  Kua O Ka Lā (KOKL) has adopted the concept of Ke Ala Pono -
The Right Path - to describe our goal of nurturing and developing our youth.  We believe that every individual has a unique potential and that it is our responsibility to help our students learn to work together within the local community to create a future that is pono - right.
Mission:  To provide Ka Pae 'Aina o Hawaii with the knowledge and skills, through Hawaiian values and place-based educational opportunities, that prepare receptive, responsive, and self-sustaining individuals that live "ke ala pono" (positive pilina 'aina, pilina kanaka, and pilina 'uhane). 
Purpose:  KOKL offers a specialized program which provides students with core curriculum, content area and electives in-keeping with State of Hawaii requirements, combined with Native Hawaiian values, culture, and place-based approach to education.
From the early morning wehena (ceremonial school opening), Kua O Ka La students are encouraged to walk Ke Ala Pono - the right and balanced path.

Admission by Donation. All donations go directly to the charity. Suggested $5 to $10.

TranceDance May 2014

7:45pm - 10:00pm
EMAX

Kalani welcomes you to join Shola Ricco for an evening of potent and transformational Trance Dance.

Trance Dance is a unique blend of body movement, healing sounds, dynamic percussive rhythms, transformational breathing techniques, and the innovative use of a blindfold or bandana - together stimulating a 'trance' state that promotes spiritual awakenings, mental clarity, physical stamina and emotional well-being.

Driven by unique musical soundtracks recorded specifically for this method of healing, Trance Dance takes participants on an 'inner journey' not limited to our normal perceptions of space/time. Ritual trance journeys have been a vital part of shamanic and eastern dance cultures for thousands of years.

Our contemporary approach to Trance Dance brings together the richness of these ancient rituals with some startlingly effective modern techniques.
 
Trance Dance's primary focus is on healing and spiritual evolution. By dancing within the seclusion of darkness participants discover parallel realities where solutions to seemingly unsolvable problems are possible. Through Trance Dance we disappear, becoming more like spirit, and simultaneously less attached to life's ordinary difficulties, making it possible at these moments to let these problems go.   

Bring a bandana or blindfold. Please arrive on time. Latecomers cannot be admitted.

Admission: $15 at the door.

Great Films for a Great Cause: The World According to Monsanto

8:00pm - 10:00pm
EMAX

The Great Film:  
 
Monsanto is the largest global company that produces agricultural products: pesticides, hormones in raising animals, and genetically modified soybean seeds, corn and other crops. The World According to Monsanto charts award-winning journalist and documentary filmmaker Marie-Monique Robin’s three-year journey across four continents to uncover the disturbing practices of multinational agribusiness corporation.

The film exposes the shocking story of how the new “green” face of the world’s leading producer of GMOs (genetically modified organisms) is no less malign than its PCB—and Agent Orange—soaked past. Monsanto currently controls the majority of the yield of the world’s genetically modified corn and soy—ingredients found in more than 95 percent of American households—and its alarming legal and political tactics to maintain this monopoly are the subject of worldwide concern, with baleful consequences for the world’s small-scale farmers. The World According to Monsanto is positioned to increase awareness of a serious threat to our food supply.
The Great Cause: The local non-profit for this months film is Hawaiian Sanctuary, an Eco-Rejuvenation center.

Admission by Donation. All donations go directly to the charity. Suggested $5 to $10 entry.

- No talking on the dance floor.

- Ecstatic Dance is a Drug & Alcohol Free Space.

TranceDance July 2014

7:45pm - 10:00pm
EMAX

Kalani welcomes you to join Shola Ricco for an evening of potent and transformational Trance Dance.

Trance Dance is a unique blend of body movement, healing sounds, dynamic percussive rhythms, transformational breathing techniques, and the innovative use of a blindfold or bandana - together stimulating a 'trance' state that promotes spiritual awakenings, mental clarity, physical stamina and emotional well-being.

Driven by unique musical soundtracks recorded specifically for this method of healing, Trance Dance takes participants on an 'inner journey' not limited to our normal perceptions of space/time. Ritual trance journeys have been a vital part of shamanic and eastern dance cultures for thousands of years.

Our contemporary approach to Trance Dance brings together the richness of these ancient rituals with some startlingly effective modern techniques.
 
Trance Dance's primary focus is on healing and spiritual evolution. By dancing within the seclusion of darkness participants discover parallel realities where solutions to seemingly unsolvable problems are possible. Through Trance Dance we disappear, becoming more like spirit, and simultaneously less attached to life's ordinary difficulties, making it possible at these moments to let these problems go.   

Bring a bandana or blindfold. Please arrive on time. Latecomers cannot be admitted.

Admission: $15 at the door.
