This is an incredible opportunity to embody lomilomi, and to understand, practice, and feel confident with this beautiful healing style of work.
Full class commitment is preferred. We go home with reading, writing and homeplay assignments to further enhance our growth as lomilomi practitioners. Free overnight stay available in Olympia before or after class. The first and last class includes an evening dinner to Get to know each other better and celebrate graduation at the end.
During the course we will create together a deepening in our lomilomi bodywork skills by exploring the HaHawaiianling Arts in 7 different parts of the body. We will have a session on the back, the shoulders, the sacrum and hips, the legs and feet, the belly and chest, the arms, the neck and face.
We will also explore through reading, journaling, discussion, and art, principles and values from the Hawaiian traditions and how they can help us to grow and deepen our own spiritual and practical life. Ka ‘Imi Pono means the search for right relationship in our lives with ourselves, our family and friends, our clients, and the earth we live on.
We will begin by sharing about who we are and a vision statement that speaks about who we are becoming and working with Ha (breathe of life). We will learn about responsibility our Kuleana and how to build our Sacred Marriage within, we’ll cultivate our Aloha (compassionate presence with ourselves and others) while we connect and open our sacred well. We will explore our internal ‘aina (land) and how we connect with the earth. We will explore incorporating ho’oponopono (to make right more right) into our lives and our practice. We will sense into our ‘Ike our inner knowing and how to use it to help us have balance with work and play. And finally we will look to our future countenance carrying our visions forward in balance with the mother/father/child within connected with spirit.
We will have books and articles to read and ponder between each class, journaling and art to express what we are learning, and a lots of opportunity to share in discussion with each other.
You are all welcome to sleep-over in our new bunkroom and guest rooms the night before class begins, or after class ends if that will facilitate the journey for you.
