"In The Beginning Was The Word, And The Word Was Law"
Presented by Dennis & Christy Soares
Sunday, 10 am, April 28, 2019
"In the beginning was the word, and the word was law." This translation from verse, that appears in the Bible, is the single most important aspect of being human. Words matter. What we "declare" with our words we almost always "manifest." The Four Agreements, by Don Miguel Ruiz, states that this is the most important agreement. Why are we so cavalier with our words? Why do we so easily engage in gossip? This talk will focus on communication both verbal and non-verbal. Communication can be both inclusive or exclusive. We learn very early how to communicate. While it may seem to be easy to be impeccable with our words (speech) anyone who has seriously tried it for a single day will find this is not so.

Rev. Dennis Soares was born and raised in Kailua, HI. He attended St. Anthony's School, St. Louis, and UH Manoa. In 1972 he embarked on a career as a professional musician performing in Waikiki and all military bases. Dennis relocated in 1980 to N. California where he continued to perform and returned to school earning a BA, MA, and teaching credential. He also met his wife Christy, in college. From 1987-2004 Dennis worked for Stockton Unified School District and also operated a recording studio out of his home. He was ordained as a minister in 2004 through Spiritual Truth Center (related to Unity) From 2004 until the present Dennis and Christy have lived in the Mountain View area where they continue to perform regularly, run a recording studio, and speak at all New Thought Churches on Hawai'i, as well as Unitarian, Mediation Centers, and Civic Clubs like Rotary. He is a four time published author.

"Learning to Trust Your Heart"
Presented by Anne Celeste
with music by Uma Ojeda

Afternoon workshop 1:30 pm

March 3, 2019
 1:30-3:30 pm
 $15 or donation, all welcome.

​Prayer of the Heart: The Remembrance
An Experience of Being Held in the Pure Love

Anne will share a profound way to live within the pure love at the core of your heart. This is the Sufi practice of Remembrance, the prayer your deep heart is always praying. Sufis are masters of the heart, and this one gentle practice is remarkably powerful.

Remembrance is deeply healing. It dissolves separation—the questioning, wanting, striving, hurting, diminished parts of ourselves. It all melts in the experience of being held within the warmly embracing love within your heart. Pure love dissolves all that is not love.

This practice has been transformative for many people, healing them—often after many years of searching—and returning them to the deep love.

Anne Celeste is a Master Teacher of the Sufi way, appointed by Sidi Al Jamal of the Shadduliyah way. This designation signifies that her heart is the earth on which people can walk as they journey to the Unity. This practice healed Anne’s life. She wrote her story in the book, Creating Heavan on Earth: My Journey from the Devastation of my Life into the Heaven in My Heart. She has used this practice to help many people heal what separates them from the pure love.

"The Ignition"
​Presented by Trish Regan
with music by Kristin Aria Shaw
Easter for me represents rebirth ... moving into the Light out of darkness and creating new life. For me it also represents "dying" to those aspects or ourselves that are not who we truly are as aspects of the divine ... the aspects that pull us off our centers and out of balance. To have new life, we must first find that inner balance and from that place of centeredness our souls guide us ever higher in vibration. The higher we allow ourselves to rise, the more we are connected to our divinity.

I am very excited to share, during this presentation, a new process that has been given to me by Spirit that helps in a direct way to create that inner balance of masculine and feminine (yin and yang) so that we can move into the oneness of who we truly are and ignite our Light This process is called "The Ignition." I will guide you through the sacred geometry of this process so that you will be able to do it as often as you like ... it is a very powerful way to raise our frequencies and actually become the Lights that we are.

"Tai Chi as a Spiritual Practice"
Presented by Jin An (Arne) Wong
With music by Brian Nakasone
Potluck Luncheon follows
Afternoon workshop (see Events page)
Born in Chinatown, San Francisco, and raised in a family of Kung Fu & Tai Chi masters, I learned martial arts at an early age.
My story is a life long journey in the world of martial arts, from the physical workout to the spiritual consciousness that evolved from practicing Tai Chi.
One of China’s secrets to longevity lies in slow movement and focused meditation that is the foundation of Tai Chi.

Jin An Wong has received many awards including an Emmy, and a CLIO, for his work in Animation spanning over 30 years in the Hollywood Film Industry. From his earlier works “TRON”, “Heavy Metal”, “Dora The Explorer”, to his recent work as Art Director and Director of “Tales of the Maya Skies”; an animated Full Dome Feature film created for planetariums, which will be playing in April at the Imiloa Planetarium, Hilo.

He also has been teaching animation for over 10 years at The Academy Of Art University SF, Expression College of Digital Design, San Francisco State University, and California College of the Arts SF. 
Since he relocated to Big Island in 2016, he has been teaching art and animation at Konawaena Middle School, Ehunui Hawaiian Immersion Language School, and Ho’okenna Elementary School.

Also upon arriving in Hawaii, he began his apprenticeship with the renowned Japanese artist Mayumi Oda, in learning her special hand-pulled silkscreen technique. Since then, he has created his own silkscreen prints with his “Tai Chi Surf Buddha” art series.

Tai Chi and Qi Gong have been a big part of his life since he was a young man. His grandfather was a Tai Chi and Kung Fu master; he studied with his uncle, Master Guk Gan at the Taishan Tai Chi Academy, China. He also studied Tai Chi with Master Kai Ying Tung in Los Angeles. His Qi Gong practice comes from Master Ma in the San Francisco Bay Area. He has been teaching Tai Chi and Qi Gong for the past 20 years in San Francisco, Los Angeles, & Hawaii.
