I’m glad you’re still here . . .
Hawaiian Bodywork and Yoga changed my life. At a very challenging time in my life, I found calmness, clarity and grounding on my yoga mat. Be it inner or divine guidance, at around the same time, I was led to Mette’s Institute to learn the beautiful and transformational KaHuna Bodywork. My journey of personal growth and change began as I started to teach what I needed to learn.
What makes the bodywork and yoga so powerful to effect change? They’re about using our breath to move our bodies; to allow the breath of life to flow through us, to let go of the emotional stories in our physical bodies, to respect and be in harmony with nature, to live with love, kindness and peace.
I’ve met several teachers along the way who have inspired my growth. Among everything that they have taught me, this is the common thread – be present, listen, touch with awareness, be loving, be kind. These are always my intentions in my sessions with you. And, I am grateful to my teachers for this teaching.
I strive to apply the 7 Principles of Huna, that forms the foundational teachings of Hawaiian Lomilomi, in all aspects of my life. They are developed and taught by Serge Kahili King, Phd, author of many works on Huna and Hawaiian Shamanism.
- What kind of life do I want to create for myself (IKE)?
- How do I let go of fear-based limitations and be free (KALA)?
- Am I focused on what’s needing my attention (MAKIA)?
- Am I being present with what is (MANAWA)?
- Where can I be more loving, kind and compassionate (ALOHA)?
- Am I able to stand confidently in my authenticity (MANA)?
- Can I let go and surrender to the flow (PONO)?
The principles seem so simple but they are not easy. As in life, we simply need to keep learning and practicing.
