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.

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.

As a performer, teacher, and choreographer, Lara explores rhythm, spirit, craft, and community to unlock the movement potential in others. An active member of the Seattle drum-and-dance communities for many years, her Afro-infused dance style is inspired by travels to Brazil and Mali, West Africa. “Wassa” is the Bambara name Lara received during one of her visits to Mali.

She offers residencies in local schools and intensive retreat-style workshops internationally. (Photo by Michael Harthorne)

Singing with Courage

Jon Arterton

January 11, 2011 - January 16, 2011

Jon Arterton at the volcano"I'm discovering that lots of people were told not to sing as children - can you imagine?! I'm sure many of them heard far more than "Don't Sing"; they heard "Don't Speak. Don't really be." Singing is a very scary experience for many of us - it's so fraught with opportunities to make a fool of oneself.
