This month, we bring the year to a close with the final of our Hawai’ian spiritual themes: Mahalo.
Originally used to express praise or admiration, mahalo has come to mean “thank you”. Native Hawaiians traditionally lived in a state of gratitude. When we practice sincere gratitude for life and all its experiences, it creates a feeling inside of being blessed.
For 2017, we’re exploring Hawai’ian spiritual themes through sound meditation.
Our theme this month is Kuleana. This is a way of life that loosely translates as “responsibility”, or “sacred duty”. It refers to a reciprocal relationship between ourselves and the thing we are responsible for.
This month, our theme is the final of the 7 Huna Principles, Pono, which is the concept of finding alignment, or rightness, in any given situation.
In anything you do, there’s a way of doing it that is most effective for you. This way may not be the most effective for someone else. When you find the way that is pono for you, it feels in alignment. It feels right, and results in the optimal outcome.
To celebrate, we’re inviting you to a special event dedicated to the healing power of love. We’ll combine a sacred cacao ceremony with a deep sound meditation, focused on the Huna principle: “Aloha: To love is to be happy with – I am happy!”
