Mark KadotaMark Kadota

My main motivation to create artwork is to find universal languages, searching for common truths that unite rather than separate. I feel that artwork, at its best, mirror society and our interior selves, raise questions, and presents communication and reflection. I try to make my messages human, poetic, inclusive, humorous, accessible and comprehensible to everyone.

Marya MannMarya Mann

Compassionate creativity unfurls from this peacemaker, poet, dancer, & art doctor.

Marya discovered the Laws of Creativity after more than 20 years of inquiry in indigenous cultures, through "cellular dancing," principles of quantum physics, and drawing from the work of Plato, Christ, Buddha, Leonardo DaVinci, Martha Graham, and Ernest Holmes, as well as other yogis, sages, and geniuses who not only achieved their own creative power and enlightenment, but inspired others.

Lara McIntosh and Marie Chong

Wassa Dance LogoPlease join us for for "Wassa Dances with Aloha" at Kalani Oceanside Retreat Center on the Big Island, Hawaii!!

About the Facilitator(s)

LARA MCINTOSH believes that anyone who moves is already a dancer. She has danced all her life. 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. It means “one who acts for joy and fulfillment.” Her curiosity about movement and cultures, combined with a deep love for music, are lifelong muses. She offers residencies in local schools and intensive retreat-style workshops internationally. (Photo by Michael Harthorne)

MARIE CHONG has been teaching various movement-related disciplines for over 20 years: Ballet, Pilates, GYROTONIC® and GYROKINESIS®. Marie was a professional ballet dancer which fostered a lifelong interest in healthy movement. Her knowledge of the body, kinesthetic movement, and various therapeutic modalities is an asset that she continues to develop and pass on to her students and clients. She is the Director/Owner of ARC School of Ballet and the Artistic Director of ARC Dance Company in Seattle, Washington, USA where she also works with private clients that include musicians, singers, actors, dancers, elite athletes, as well as non-professional movers to design individually-tailored healthy postural and kinesthetic improvements.

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.
