Capoeira Angola with Njoli Brown

4:30pm - 6:00pm
Other Kalani - see description

Capoeira is an Afro-Brazilian art form. A combination of music, movement and history, born of the struggle for liberation by African peoples brought to the new world. Within this beautiful endeavor students explore a range of possibilities through dance, acrobatics, instrumental and vocal music.

FICA Hawaii will have the privilege of hosting Instructor Njoli Brown at Kalani. Take advantage of this opportunity to deepen your individual practices and help support our community driven efforts to bring talent and cultivate information/knowledge exchange. The class will be geared toward beginners and advanced practitioners of varying styles alike, that is... it’s for everyone!

Njoli Brown is a martial & fighting arts practitioner of 30 years with teacher level accreditation in various styles.

Njoli began his study of Capoeira in Denmark (1997). After two years of intensive study with group Quilombo do Norte, came the decision to study the Angola style of Capoeira with a master (mestre) of the art form. In 1999 he moved to Seattle to train with Mestre Jurandir Nascimento who, at the time, had recently relocated to the northwest from southern Brasil to start a chapter of the International Capoeira Angola Foundation. At the close of 2006 Njoli moved home to New York City and has been an integral part of the establishment of FICA NY, a group dedicated to training youth and spreading this beautiful art form throughout the 5 boroughs, while also developing and facilitating a multiplicity of youth programs centering around the use of Capoeira Angola as a tool for inspiring community action and social justice.

FICA Hawaii Instructor Joe Hoffman offers Capoeira Angola to the Puna community by donation every Saturday.

Rhythm Full Circle with Deborah Masterson

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

Immerse yourself in this form of moving, musical exploration. Develop your awareness and deepen your understanding of rhythm in its many forms. You don’t need to play an instrument. People from all paths come together to transform their relationship to music, to each other, and to life. Bring your curiosity!

In a  two-hour rhythm circle, 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 leads us to an awareness not only of music, but also of learning and life. It’s an opportunity for us –together– to explore the power of rhythm to instruct, challenge, and heal.

Wear comfortable clothes and an open mind. Yoga mats are available for your use.

Rhythm Full Circle




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.

Rhythm circles are based on the TaKeTiNa method for rhythm education and therapy. In 2008, Deborah and her mainland partner, Zorina Wolf (the interviewee) prepared this video to help answer the question: What is TaKeTiNa?

Kalani Permaculture Series: Bee Biology~ Introduction to Treatment-Free Bee Keeping

1:30pm - 4:30pm
Other Kalani - see description

Many of us know that bees are amazing.  They pollinate flowers and help provide us with delicious fruits and vegetables.  They make yummy honey and pollen, and their hive products can be used to create many beautiful and useful products such candles & salves.

A bee hive is made up of wax cells.  These cells are home to all the baby bees and provide storage for all the pollen, nectar, and honey.  Bees use these wax cells to create the life and food that sustains them.  Just like us, bees need clean food, air, water, and shelter.  By providing them with the basic tools they need to survive they do it very well on their own.

Over many years of interactive learning with honeybees Jen Rasmussen has discovered that there are some basic management techniques that if applied keep bees healthy without the use of treatments.  Many of you may not be aware of the chemicals used in bee hives, that may also be in the honey you consume.  There is another way!

This workshop will help you identify the castes of honeybees, the delicious & amazing products they create, and identify the pests & diseases that could harm them. The focus of this workshop is to offer insight into how bees communicate, why & how they do what they do, and how to use preventive care to protect them from harmful pests & diseases.  We will be working with top bar hives that have been established at Kalani since August.  These hives will demonstrate for us through a hands on learning experience all of their incredible skills and masterful designs.



Jen Rasmussen started learning about bees about eight years ago here on the Big Island.  After a few months working with bees, several pests & diseases made their way to the Big Island.  The learning curve was rough for many bees & their keepers.  Several beekeepers lost their bees and struggled to recover.  At this time Jen Rasmussen began her journey learning how to care for bees with these new pests & diseases without the use of chemical treatments.

Over the years the bees have grown strong and capable of protecting and sustaining their hives.  It may be witnessed at Paradise Nectar Apiaries, even after many losses, the strong bees survive, and create the new hives that will repopulate the apiary.  Jen Rasmussen encourages strong hygienic behavior in the hives and teaches how to provide preventative hive management that will keep the bees healthy and strong.

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.

This month's topic: The Magic of Asking for What You Want

It’s one thing to have desires and to deeply want things. But nothing is going to happen until we actively ask for these things and do our part to bring them about. Of course, we have to be willing to receive them as well. But there is amazing power in the simple act of asking.


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.
