Dances of Universal Peace
March 12, 2017
People worldwide yearning for Unity have found in the Dances of Universal Peace a renewing and inspiring spiritual practice that brings us face to face with Life and Truth, beyond concepts and beliefs.
Moving in the moment while singing sacred phrases, mantras and poetry of the myriad of spiritual traditions that grace the Earth. The dances open us to remembrance of the natural human state -- unguarded, authentic and free. They continue to be, (as the originator, Samuel Lewis envisioned) “a way to generate life-energy and the peace that passes all understanding.”

Kona Loving Groups offers Free Support from past trauma or recent breakups/upsets in a safe place to share. We host a weekly meeting on Thursday evenings in the Honua Room from 6-8pm. Most of us have not received or experienced unconditional love (the kind where no return of anything is expected). This is one of the opportunities to be heard, seen, accepted and loved. Arriving early ensures the group will meet and there will be time to share or get held.
We are friends gathering to practice giving and receiving unconditional love. Together we learn practical ways to improve all relationships (parents, siblings, children, spouses, partners, co-workers, etc.). No prior experience or participation is required.
This is a drop in, no charge, ongoing group with a host trained in facilitating based on Unconditionally Loving principles. All Donation$ received benefit the New Thought Center of Hawaii.
Book Study is planned to begin in February - stay tuned :)
“We gather to awaken hearts to unconditional Love and to transform lives.” Loving Groups’ founding and largest community is in Phoenix, AZ, where there are 30 meetings a week! Free Conference Calls happen everyday. For more info, go to www.loving-groups.com or www.davinamar.com.

"Hawaiian Death & Dying"
by Lehua Lopez
SATURDAY, March 11, 2017
1:00 PM to 2:30 PM
$15 per person
NEW THOUGHT CENTER OF HAWAI`I
Hawaiian attitudes and practices about those who transition from this time to the next have changed considerably over the last 200+ years. However, there are many Hawaiians whose understandings about death and dying still reflect many of those believed and practiced by their ancestors.
Among other topics, the subject of iwi (bones) will be discussed, as “the bones of the dead [are] considered the most cherished possession…” (M.K. Puku`i, Hawaiian Dictionary). In light of the many `aina (land) and cultural issues passionately supported by Native Hawaiians on every island, an understanding of why iwi are so important will be explored, as iwi can also refer to the underlying bedrock and ‘spine’ of each island as well as the ‘life’ of sacred sites.
Lehua Lopez and co-teacher Willy Iaukea will tell stories about the hauntingly beautiful passing of loved ones, stories from their kupuna, and stories about “cherished possessions” that illustrate the continuing Hawaiian beliefs and practices surrounding dying and death.
Lehua Lopez, a native Hawaiian cultural anthropologist, has been researching Hawaiian culture for more than 40 years. Born and raised in Hawai`i Nei, she is a gifted presenter and delights her audiences with mesmerizing stories and complex insights. She can be reached at 929-9891, or email email@example.com.

Acu-Yoga: A Yogassage Seminar on the Light Touch
Saturday, February 25th, 1:00 - 4:00 PM
at the New Thought Center
Acu-Yoga uses the power of touch, the breath, and your intention to bring more joy, resilience, and enthusiasm to your life. Exploring Windows of the Sky, Bubbling Wellspring, and the Sea of Contentment – a few of the powerful energy points located in the body -- brings a whole new dimension to the healing and wisdom in movement.
A hybrid of Yoga Therapy and Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), Acu-Yoga features finger or hand pressure, sound, and visualizations. Activating meridian skin points removes harmful toxins, boosts endorphins, balances the chakras, restores vital energy, and empowers the Soul.
You’ll learn to the right touch to use for self-adjusting in yoga poses — or even sitting at your desk. Acu-Yoga bridges body and mind back into harmony so your natural life energy flows fully. You have new strength to face any challenge with less stress, more insight, and just the right touch, which is the light touch.
For this second in a four-part Yogassage series, please bring a yoga mat, a journal, and a closed water bottle.
YOGASSAGE II: ACU-YOGA
Acu-Yoga balances the Meridians and Regulatory channels using Pressure Points to connect to your Highest Self, relieve sinus, back ache, and headache, and recover Your inner truth and creative aliveness.
