Mahalo nui loa for expressing interest in waking-up – spiritually! Our circle / class is for (and by) same-sex oriented (bi, gay, lesbian, trans, etc.) souls ages 16 and up.
Join us to awaken to a deep sense of peace supported by ever-enriching friendships. With each gathering we’ll strengthen our skills to reduce stress, increase joy as well as rediscover what solid, life-long friendships feel like. Our group will – over time – ripen into a robust Honolulu Ohana. (I know this because I’ve walked this path before.)
After we all get settled (around 6 p.m.) we’ll do a 15 minute silent meditation. How you choose to sit is totally up to you. We have sturdy, comfortable chairs for 12. Prefer to sit on the floor? Fine. Bring a cushion or mat if you need one.
Post meditation we’ll break to stretch, enjoy some purified water, bathroom break? Then we’ll debrief for about 15 minutes in small groups (3-4 people each).
By 6:45ish we’ll dish-up a mostly vegetarian, gluten-free potluck. As we eat we’ll watch a recent main movie produced by Spiritual Cinema. Watch the video below to see a summary of the movies we may enjoy…
No matter where you’re at on your awakening journey – all welcome.
- Regarding our meditation time I’m less concerned about form (how you sit). I’m more attentive to function (how you breathe). Sitting cross-legged (the traditional image most folks think of when they imagine doing meditation) restricts blood flow.
- We’ll sit for 15 minutes to start. We’ll work up to 30 minutes. Every so often we may attempt a one-hour sit. (Warning – sitting in silence is a powerful teacher.

Aloha~~ Soul here . . .
Since age 11 when I consciously started my training I had no idea I’d become a monk in three orders, shaman in four nations as well as a social worker (masters level). My eclectic path also includes considerable business experience to include a successful online University. I’m delighted to co-create a healthy space for us to learn, laugh and love with more ease and grace.
I’d enjoy meeting you anytime. Call or text me at 808-780-0819. FaceTime? Sure!
In gratitude I bow to you for your interest . . .
