About the Facilitator(s)

Alicia Cheung

Alicia Cheung

With a 20-plus year practice, Alicia Cheung is extremely passionate about teaching yoga. She loves connecting with and encouraging students to find and play with their edges, knowing when to push and when to surrender. Using the mat practice as a metaphor for life, she enjoys threading philosophy into her teaching to encourage people to experience themselves beyond the mat.

Oliver took his first yoga asana class with Rodney Yee about 20 years ago, but considers his yoga training to have started the first time he entered the ocean as a kid. He completed the YogaWorks teacher training in 1999 and is an ERYT-500 teacher, and conducts teacher trainings for YogaWorks internationally. Oliver currently lives in Bali.

Shaman of Pleasure Training

Stewart Blackburn

February 19, 2015 - February 24, 2015

A shaman is a healer by definition. A shaman of pleasure is one who uses the many ways of feeling good to effect meaningful changes in the life of one who is suffering. Not only does pleasure of any kind feel good, it is also how we move into our most powerful state of being.

Stewart Blackburn is legally ordained by Aloha International as an Alaka’i and minister, where he serves as a senior teacher and leader of that organization. He is also a professional chef, lomilomi practitioner, and a shamanic counselor, with an MS degree in Food Science. Stewart also graduated Om Kara Kriya Yoga®, Years 1 and 2. A shaman of pleasure, Stewart authored a book entitled: The Skills of Pleasure: Crafting the Life You Want, along with dozens of articles on shamanism, pleasure, and consciousness.

Stewart owned a chocolate sauce factory for 15 years and has put a great deal of focus on how moving up from one pleasure to a higher one leads one into the great pleasures of Divine Union. He now teaches the Huna Healing Circle at Kalani, weekly, monthly workshops on The Essential Skills for a New World, and has a counseling practice nearby.
