The Heart of Aloha

Mark Kadota

December 26, 2012 - December 27, 2012

Art of AlohaWinter is a time of clearing away dead leaves and preparing for new growth in the spring. I am using this as a metaphor for creating this workshop. The focus of this workshop is the art of giving. We will explore our fears and find ways to remove the blocks. We will address giving and receiving to ourselves and the world around us.
 

About the Facilitator(s)

Most of my education has been informal and passed down through an oral tradition. I have relied on my intuition, travel and determination to explore cultural ideas and beliefs. Much of my teachings rely on taking parts of various cultural practices and creating unique ways of self-discovery. Main source of practices has been shamanic cultures. I have had a series of teachers in different shamanic cultures.
