Hawaii Blue Hands - Men's Adventure, Massage and Health Retreat

Maxwell Starkhouse, Dennis Dehler and jaRed Sam

Massage Picture courtesy of Ripplemassage.com.auWe are currently offering FREE upgrades!  Rest, Relax and Rejunenate on the Big Island for 6 days.

About the Facilitator(s)

Accoding to the Mayan Calendar, Blue Hand represents the 'beauty way', the ability to see intrinsic beauty within yourself and in all things. Living the beauty way requires being in your full beauty and power. From this place, your self-authority naturally flows. This is the position where your ego is aligned with divine will. When you are standing in your full beauty and power, your very presence invites others to be all that they are. To the Maya, Blue Hand represents the deer, the gentle, serenely aware guide who walks in fluid beauty and grace, opening and revealing.

Blue Hands people are natural healers.  Maxwell, jaRed and Dennis are all Blue Hands and have been living, loving and exploring in Hawaii for 9 years.  They are all licensed massage therapist and gifted yoga teachers, and love sharing the beauty and joy of living in Hawaii.

Richard and Kalani team, I feel moved by your example...you live aloha, share amazing spirit and vision, and remind me what 'living' really is. I had the best time and everyone was so special; I can't be prouder of being gay and being connected to such amazing people. I look forward to staying in touch with you and the others and hope for many more wonderful moments with you all at Kalani.
Much aloha, David (Kawika)
