Aloha Ke Akua! Mahalo nui loa for visiting The Halau!
We established our Sanctuary for the exploration and awakening of consciousness, the unfolding of our collective creative and healing potential and realisation of our essential Unity.
Embracing a forest and freshwater lakes, our grounds provide a perfect atmosphere for the enrichment of body, mind and spirit.
Our teachings arise out of direct experience of awakened awareness and emanates the untamable fragrance of freedom whilst radically embracing the mystery and mess of human existence. Our invitation is for you to open to the fullness of life, to say YES to the totality of your experience and to meet reality with radical compassion. Our doors are open invitation to all who seek authentic freedom and are willing to meet heart to heart in honest and open inquiry.
We were taught that the goal of life is to move through life walking up the mountain of experiences with your Aloha, your Bowl of Light. Life is filled with lessons to learn and teaching moments along the way. When you become angry or jealous, you drop those stones into your bowl of light and those rocks cause leaks in your Mana-sacred power. When your bowl becomes filled with stones, you become a stone that cannot grow. No Aloha! The solution is that at any moment, you can turn your bowl upside down emptying these stones out of your bowl to naturally refill it with YOUR golden light -- your natural Aware and Awakened state of Aloha, your natural state of Divinity. This is the power of Pure Aloha: an Awakened Heart Awakens the Mind.
Awakening hinges on your genuine desire for the discovery of your true nature. If it is to flower in you, you must truly want liberation from everything that is false in you, you must want to give yourself totally to the inquiry into what is true beyond all inherited concepts, ideas and beliefs.
The purpose of our teachings is to ignite this wanting in you. When the flame of this desire becomes an untamable fire, it flips a switch inside of you and the direction of your destiny is irrevocably altered. It’s like turning on the light only to discover that you are this light. This in itself is extra-ordinary: even though you may have heard the words a thousand times, nothing can prepare you for the naked reality that is revealed.
And yet the living experience of this revelation is very ordinary: you have simply re-discovered the innocent wholeness of your essential nature. It’s the you that never was and never will be separate from anything at all. This discovery is the end of suffering and the beginning of freedom.
But awakening is just the beginning. The adventure begins, not in the rarified atmosphere of transcendence, but in the midst of the chaos of life. And living the truth of awakening has perhaps never been more of an imperative than in today’s rapidly changing world.
The invitation is for you to awaken to the pristine perfection of your inner light and then to fully embody and express this light amidst the mystery and mess of human existence.

You can accomplish a great deal today, but discipline is key. Stay focused on your goals. Don’t let distractions interfere. You have the skills and resources to achieve what you want, but not without effort. When the Chariot appears reversed, there is trouble with making progress. You may have all you need to move forward but lack the confidence to work towards your dreams. You may not feel deserving of happiness, or you may feel stifled by fear. Try to overcome your doubt. It is likely that your thoughts are limiting you more than the reality of the situation. This card could also indicate that your energy is scattered. You may be unclear about what you want, or you may feel pressured to put others’ desires before your own. Take time to go inside yourself and seek clarity about your priorities. The Chariot reversed may indicate movement, but it is movement that has not been thought through clearly. You may be overconfident and rushing ahead before completing the foundational steps necessary to achieve your goal. Your actions now may also be unethical or harmful to yourself or others. This card is advising you to slow down and look at the bigger picture. It could also indicate travel trouble, especially when travel is over land. Be sure to have your vehicle tuned up before a long trip and allow yourself extra time to get to appointments.
Have you ever found yourself having a conversation with, well, yourself? Have you ever then turned red with embarrassment as you notice those around you watching you, giving you stares, and pointing to
To prevent heart attacks, never eat unhealthy foods, and consume foods that are rich in nutrients, fiber, and healthy fats. Here are 18 foods that you must add to your diet to keep your heart healthy and strong.
The plant called the elder is used to describe a bushy shrub like plant that can reach a few feet in height as shrub-like forms normally do or it may be referring to a tree reaching up to fifty feet in height – the elderberries which are borne on both types of plants range and differ markedly in the shape and taste. The flowers are usually formed in aromatic clusters of many star-shaped and white colored flowers, which can vary from bunches with flat-topped to the globular types of arrangement. When ripened, these will mature to produce berrylike and limb sagging fruits which can range in color from stark blue to an amber, and even red to a complete black – the variation in the taste of these elderberries is also markedly different.
Today’s Taurus new moon is telling a story all of its own, because it’s got no main aspects, except for a wide conjunction with retrograde Mercury still in Aries. Of course, at new moon the moon is conjunct the sun, always, too.
Moon is in the best sign for it, it’s exalted. Moon symbolizes so many things in astrology, but some are moods, emotions, females in general, reflection and a kind of passivity as contrasted with the outgoing energy of the sun. In the sign Taurus, lunar reflective qualities find it easier to manifest: peace, domesticity, just relaxing, being still – qualities that today’s society perhaps doesn’t place a high value on. Taurus moon people like their creature comforts, are not afraid of their sensuality, love to dwell on their earthy side. Taurus is an earth sign, and befittingly, Earth Day happens during sun in Taurus month.
I want to focus completely on what is important to me
Walk down a steady path
Feet swift but grounded
Mind emotionally set
When I make a promise I want to be able to keep it…no matter what
Stubborn…yes I am it’s just a shame more of us aren’t
Oh it is so true that I have gotten stuck in a situation that was not so good for me all because I refused to throw away the time I had invested in itIn my mind holding on to what I have is far better than risking it all to try something new
Perhaps it is time to change that way of thinking!
And seek out a second chance to a more sensible approach to life
The number Five represents a challenge that will allow for further growth. Fives are an initial struggle on a new path. Five is the number of disequilibrium — shaking things up, breaking old habits, passing through the fire to be made stronger. Learning and movement are represented by the number Five. Five is the number of the Throat Chakra, which is concerned with communication. The number Five also links the astrological sign of Leo, as the fifth sign of the zodiac, and the planet Saturn, the god who fathered Jupiter, Neptune and Pluto, and the god who represents Time. Saturn is associated with self-control, limitation and maturation. The suit of wands symbolize the element of Fire. Wands represent inspiration, life force, motivation, power and desire. They also represent the connection between the spiritual and material, as we can see when we think of magic wands.
Chances are you’re feeling feisty today. You may get involved in a heated debate, or have a craving for some fun competition. The warning is to not get too attached to winning — keep it light, have fun. New ideas and strengthened friendships are possible. The Five of Wands reversed may indicate when a disagreement is finally resolved. You may be ready to admit you were wrong or apologize to someone, or someone may apologize to you. However, beware of smoothing over a situation to avoid conflict as the issue may come up again and again until you confront it. This card may also come up when you back down too quickly when faced with opposition. Remember that challenging situations often have the most rewarding outcomes. If you are finding a relationship dull, this card could indicated a need for increased competitiveness. Play sports or board games together. This card could also indicate inner conflict, like wanting to do two things that cannot both be done together; litigation; disputes; trickery; contradiction.
When the Four of Pentacles appears reversed, it can be either suggesting that you are clinging too tightly to your material resources, or that you are letting them go too easily. You may have finally come into some money after a time of frugelness and are now “throwing your money away” as an overcompensation. You may feel like others are pressuring you to spend more than feels comfortable for you, or that others are being unnecessarily greedy. You may be giving up material comforts in order to grow spiritually. So, for today, be cautious about your health and finances. Remember how important your well being and long-term goals are to you. Even if you’ve slipped into some unhealthy habit, or frivolous spending, lately, you’ve still made some amazing progress and built a solid foundation for success. Today is a great day to get back on track.
