Many of you are aware that we were drawn into connection with a Hawaiian kahuna elder named Hale Makua during the last eight years of his life. One of the things that we discussed across that time was our uniquely human experience of spiritual unfolding--a process in which we, as souls, grow, increase and become more than we were.

So allow us to bring this topic up for consideration because when we understand fully what it is that we have stepped into, or as Makua was fond of saying--what we have all signed up for--the rest of our life may become increasingly clear.Read more

New Years Greeting 2009 - Three Sacred Directives


New Years Greetings...with the beginning of 2009, as well as the beginning of a new political administration in Washington DC, we are being regaled by e-mails from our readers and friends, expressing renewed hope and enthusiasm for our future.

Hale Makua's Thoughts on Shamanic Circles

When you form your shamanic circles, you create, as well as receive, the gift of your togetherness, powered by your collective Aloha. And if you are to ‘project yourself’ (with intention and shamanic journeywork) within and beyond these circles, there is nothing you would like more than to be in good company… which you are.Read more

The Law of Polarity

Periodically we sit at the breakfast table and discuss portions of our workshop teachings. This is one of the benefits of Hank’s extended periods at home in the winter months. One of us will mention an interesting topic, like the Law of Polarity, and we are off in multiple directions of discussion. On occasion we comment on how our discussions could be broadened in scope and might provide an interesting focus here for your consideration.Read more
