Backbending, Breathing & Bandhas: A Jivamukti Workshop.

9:00am - 12:00pm
Other Kalani - see description

Backbends provide entry into the ANAHATA (heart) chakra, located at the center of the chest. Anahata chakra is associated with our karmic relationships with others whom we feel have hurt us. When we bend backwards, we access our heart center and allow the experience of those relationships to come to the surface. That can be very scary, because it forces us to see that the source of negativity is within us, not in the others whom we usually feel have wronged us—we can only see things outside of us that we already have within us; nothing exists in the world except as a projection of our own minds. As Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. said, “I have decided to go with love; hate is just too heavy a burden to bear.” Backbends also stimulate the thymus gland. The thymus plays a significant role in our immune system, which can be suppressed when we dwell in dark emotions. Stimulating that gland can help keep our immune system working effectively and contribute to better health. Our physical, psychological and spiritual health is intertwined."-Sharon gannon

~This workshop is open to all levels~

Healing the Stories We Tell Ourselves with Stewart Blackburn

We all tell stories about who we are and how we came to be right here. But many times we tell stories that make us feel bad, and it doesn't have to be that way.

*Dissect our own process of story making

*Find the value in the painful things we've experienced

*Learn how to honestly lmove from victim to hero in how we look at ourselves

As humans, we can create any story that we want to about who we are. Why not tell stories that let us love ourselves!

Rhythm Full Circle with Deborah Masterson

2:15pm - 4:15pm
Other Kalani - see description

Immerse yourself in this form of moving, musical exploration. Develop your awareness and deepen your understanding of rhythm in its many forms. You don’t need to play an instrument. People from all paths come together to transform their relationship to music, to each other, and to life. Bring your curiosity!

In a  two-hour rhythm circle, we vocalize, step, and clap simultaneously. Gently held and supported by the group, we weave different rhythms on several levels. Our  experience of repeatedly falling into chaos and then re-emerging into a higher level of organization leads us to an awareness not only of music, but also of learning and life. It’s an opportunity for us –together– to explore the power of rhythm to instruct, challenge, and heal.

Wear comfortable clothes and an open mind. Yoga mats are available for your use.

Rhythm Full Circle




Deborah Masterson, a certified advanced TaKeTiNa rhythm teacher, began to train with the founders, Reinhard and Cornelia Flatischler in 1998 and continues to do so. Her fascination with the mystery and power of rhythm was ignited when, in 1988, she attended a Samulnori (Korean folk drumming) concert. For many years, she concentrated on Korean percussion and dance, both in Honolulu and in Korea. More recently, her explorations have included West African dundun, Cuban and Congolese congas, dumbek, and frame drum.

Rhythm circles are based on the TaKeTiNa method for rhythm education and therapy. In 2008, Deborah and her mainland partner, Zorina Wolf (the interviewee) prepared this video to help answer the question: What is TaKeTiNa?

The Great Cause: The Polynesian Voyaging Society

Founded on a legacy of Pacific Ocean exploration, the Polynesian Voyaging Society seeks to perpetuate the art and science of traditional Polynesian voyaging and the spirit of exploration through experiential educational programs that inspire students and their communities to respect and care for themselves, each other, and their natural and cultural environments.

Adventures in Hawaiian Shamanism with Stewart Blackburn

1:30pm - 3:30pm
Other Kalani - see description


 Adventures in Hawaiian Shamanism is a series of stand-alone classes that explore the esoteric knowledge of Ancient Hawaii. This form of that knowledge is called Huna and comes from the island of Kauai. In these classes we work with the elements, the animals, the plants, and the Spirits for healing and self-knowledge. The guiding principle is Aloha and all that we do is an extension of that principle. We use a Huna-style Shamanic Journey in each class to explore and work with the inner world to help make the outer world a better place.

This month's topic: Working with Hawaiian Spirit Animals.

Spirit animals are common to all forms of Shamanism but the Hawaiians had their own special ones. These spirit animals are very useful thoughtforms for focusing on specific tasks and learning more about given situations. We’ll explore both land-based and sea-based spirit animals in this class.



Stewart Blackburn is a shamanic practitioner and teacher whose focus is on helping people become self-empowered and self-loving. He is an ordained senior teacher (alaka'i) of Aloha International (Huna) who teaches many classes, both at Kalani and online. He is a writer, a counselor, and a healer, and many people have found his book, The Skills of Pleasure, very helpful. He lives quietly in the jungle near Kalani with his dog, Pono.
