Also, on Sunday 9/8 Stephanie will be doing a workshop on  The Healing Power of Huna - An Introduction to Hawaiian Spirituality and Practice from 1-2pm on Sunday 9/8 - donations appreciated ($10 suggested) .

We will explore the native Hawaiin view on our energetic bodies and how our minds actually manifest our reality. We will discuss how their ancient practices can be applied to ourselves today to assist us in empowering our own healing mentally, physically and spiritually. The basic philosophy of the kahunas is while you cannot change the course of the seasons, you can change the course of events you personally experience during those seasons by altering your thinking. Aloha!
