Mana Lomi: 3 day Ho’oponopono Workshop and 4 Day Hawaiian Fasting Program

Ho’oponopono is the answer to bringing peace, harmony, balance, wisdom and love into one’s life. Ultimately this concept will expand into the community, society, the world, and the universe. Meditation is the key to ho’oponopono because it can increase and refine the receptivity of the Divine consciousness within all things.

About the Facilitator(s)

Gena Kenny

Gena Kenny

Gena has been teaching yoga for over 15 years. Her studies began with Jilda Liddicut of the Gaia School of Yoga. She has continued expanding her yoga studies under the guidance of internationally renowned teacher Donna Farhi. Her teaching focuses on nurturing from the inside – out. This approach allows students of all levels of experience and from all traditions to build their own authentic Yoga practice.

“My connection to Hawaii and the spirit of Polynesia comes from a twenty year history of paddling outrigger canoes. Through my many travels to Hawaii, I have had the opportunity to discover the magic of the Polynesian Islands and peoples. In essence the spirit of the islands is "Aloha", which means to be kind, nurturing and loving to yourself, to others and to the planet.”

The creation of "`Ohana Yoga" comes from blending this 'magic' and 'spirit' into her own unique style of teaching. Gena has also authored a book and dvd "The Gift of Yoga".

Kent Cuthbert

Kent has a lifelong passion for the outdoors and an active lifestyle. From participating in sports from an early age right up to competing in 5 Ironman Triathlon events Kent has continued to find reasons to be outside. After spending fifteen years as a professional in the corporate world he followed his passion and currently owns and operates Kayak Melbourne a tour business in Australia, and assists Gena as partner in Ohana Yoga & Wellness.

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 !

The Venice Mootney Company
