English Conversation Class in Hawaii

Glenn Hopkins

kalani pool EVERY STUDENT CAN BE A TOURIST EVERY AFTERNOON.
Private or small group tutoring also available.

Price INCLUDES three delicious meals a day, two-hour morning, English-only "heart circle", camping space, showers and hot tub at The beautiful KALANI OCEANSIDE RETREAT. Upgrades to rooms and cottages available.

About the Facilitator(s)

Glenn HopkinsThis year nominated by his fellow-teachers of Westside Community Adult School (link) for the prestigious Platinum Apple Award for Teaching Excellence (given by the teacher's union, United Teachers, LA) , Glenn Hopkins recently received this note from his evaluating Principal, Mr.
Jim Chacon: "Your students are engaged and happy and obviously learning. It's always a pleasure to observe you."

And through the years his students from all over the globe have sung his praises:

"At first I was shy and 'tongue-tied.' But we of the international class became friends and really learned from each other." --Yaping Chen, China

"You're the only teacher who ever explained the 18 vowel sounds...and it's the most important thing to know about American pronunciation.  Once I began pronouncing correctly I started to understand so much better what Americans talking fast to me were saying." --Thomas Geist, France

"He explains everything properly and clearly, and answers everyone's questions patiently. We all learned a lot not because he forced us to learn, but he made us learn by keeping the atmosphere of the class lively and friendly." --Asadullah Pashtun, Afghanistan (January 20, 2011)

And from a recent visitor to the level one (beginning, low) class:
"He exudes warmth and erudition...I consider his students lucky to have him." --Lucy Hahn, Master's Degree in teaching English as a Foreign Language.

"A familiar figure on the Los Angles theater scene, Glenn Hopkins has written over twenty plays melodramatic and hilarious, brash and sensitive, frustrating yet ultimately rewarding.Hopkins writes from the heart, exploring human verities as well as human foibles. His integrity and purpose shine through."  -Dramalogue Magazine

What better setting for telling about our afternoon adventures on the gorgeous Big Island of Hawaii than a morning "heart circle" of new international friends with a trained (but unobtrusive) instructor of English to Adults with over 30 years of experience in moving people forward in their confidence and fluency?

Send your check indicating the dates you want to attend to our office in California today. You don't have to be in tent. You can up-grade to a room or your own cottage.

Glenn has told me he would be open to putting a little show together for performing in the evening at Kalani. Don't be shy! Take that dream vacation/class this summer !
-Ernest Harding , Associate Producer
The Venice Mootney Company

Tending the Feminine Psyche

Carolyn Costin, Elissa Shapiro, Francie White, Anita Johnston

A Professional Workshop & Training for Women Treating Eating Disorders.

Tending the Feminine PsycheThis 6-day/6 night retreat/workshop offers a continuum of incredible didactic teaching balanced with dream-like, soulful and spiritually enriching experiences that are unique only to Kalani-based retreats.

About the Facilitator(s)

Carolyn Costin, M.A.,M.ED., M.F.T. Author of The Eating Disorder Sourcebook & 100 Questions and Answers About Eating Disorders will focus on advanced techniques in therapy sessions that use mindfulness. Her unique use of mindfulness principles sets the clinician free from getting hooked into patients’ stories, sucked into dramas, and caught up in their own agendas. Carolyn will demonstrate firsthand how to remain free from burnout while offering profound recovery opportunities for patients. Bring your difficult cases and your difficult self as Carolyn's demonstration sessions will focus on how, time and time again, you can take the path toward transformative moments in your professional and or personal work. Carolyn will bring us her new version of “Ten things most important to transformative work.”

Anita Johnston, PhD: Author of Eating in the Light of the Moon will teach how to become fluent in storytelling and storylistening, how to use metaphor as an aspect of your own work professionally and personally, and how to find meaning in the life stories you inhabit. Using archetypal psychological principles, expand your own access to inner realms of the deep feminine -- realms outside of linear thinking and three-dimensional space and time – realms which will enrich your own life and your sessions with patients.

Francie White, M.S. R.D. : Mixes practical ideas advancing nutrition therapy with fundamentals about the science of consciousness (PhD candidate in consciousness-studies). As a colleague of Geneen Roth, she will bring key insights from Roth’s new book: Women, Food & God commenting on the role of self-judgment in finding a path to the heart of the sacred. Francie brings life to client-sessions about recovery blocks and how to navigate through them. Prevent burn-out through 5 processes that inspire recovery.

Elissa Shapiro, LCSW: Back by popular demand! Elissa is a licensed therapist, movement and dance facilitator. She becomes the connecting force for all the elements to fuse within the body of each participant. Her work never fails to bring powerful meaning and unity to the group through the elements, rituals and the soul-themes of the workshop.
