5 Rhythms Dance with Tess Howell

1:00pm - 3:00pm
Other Kalani - see description

5 Rhythms is a dynamic movement practice—a practice of being in your body—that ignites creativity, connection, and community.

We will dance a 5 Rhythms wave - no steps to learn, nothing to get right, just being with our own body in motion as we move to the music- breath, body and the beat.  Dancing to drop in deeper, to connect to self, to other(s) and to the world around us.

- This class is for age 16 plus and is a drug and alcohol free space.
- No previous experience is necessary.

Facilitator:

Tess HowellTess Howell is a 5 Rhythms teacher,  artist, art therapist,  dance producer, and ceremonialist.   She is currently based in Brighton, UK and has previously spent prolonged periods of time on the Big Island. She specialises in facilitating dance and ceremony out of doors. www.wild-grace.com

Tess says  “Dance is my dharma. Moving mindfully into each moment. I feel passionate about using dance so that we can be as embodied, empowered and awake as possible; because I want to co-create a community that loves living life. ...The dancefloor is a place with permission-  a space to feel free,  to see what is so, to shake it out, to settle into the sweetness of  being at home in your body. Please come and join us, you will be warmly welcomed. ”

Great Films for a Great Cause: The Amazing Spiderman 2

The Great Film: The Amazing Spiderman 2
We've always known that Spider-Man's most important conflict has been within himself: the struggle between the ordinary obligations of Peter Parker and the extraordinary responsibilities of Spider-Man. But in The Amazing Spider-Man 2, Peter Parker finds that his greatest battle is about to begin. It's great to be Spider-Man. For Peter Parker, there's no feeling quite like swinging between skyscrapers, embracing being the hero, and spending time with Gwen. But being Spider-Man comes at a price..

Hawaiʻi Community College (HawaiiCC) promotes student learning by embracing our unique Hawaiʻi Island culture and inspiring growth in the spirit of "E ʻImi Pono." Aligned with the UH Community Colleges system's mission, we are committed to serving all segments of our Hawaiʻi Island community.

Other Kalani - see description

Deep personal power is the solid foundation that we all need to have in order to build a life of genuine happiness and effectiveness.

 In this workshop we will claim our authority to be who we are and to choose for ourselves. Strengthen our focus and will. And tap into even more powerful ways to use our energies and fulfill our dreams.

As humans, we are far more powerful than we’ve ever imagined! Now is the time to open to it!

About Stewart Blackburn:

He has been teaching Huna (Hawaiian shamanism) at Kalani for over 5 years and has a private practice of healing and counseling nearby.

Permaculture Series: October 2014

1:00pm - 4:00pm
Other Kalani - see description
Puna, now is the time to take "The Next Step."
Join us for the most important permaculture collaboration our district has seen, as we explore, together, how to create modern ahupuaʻa, and share the abundant knowledge we have in Puna.

This initiative involves all of the key leaders in permaculture and sustainability in Puna: it is co-stewarded by Kalani and Hawaiian Sanctuary, and actively supported by Laʻakea, the Keliihoomalu ʻOhana in Kalapana, many of Puna's local permaculturists, and financially supported by the County of Hawaiʻi through the stewardship of Greggor Ilagan. The collaboration to put this initiative together is unprecedented.

Come to this event with your ideas to share on what the Modern Ahupuhaʻa means to you. The goal of the Modern Ahupuaʻa Permaculture Series is to gather knowledge, practices and social strategies to remember and share our best resources.

It is time for Puna to collaborate and build this "Next Step" together. Save the third Saturday of each month for this valuable time together, as we learn and grow our modern ahupuaʻa, together. Community Arts Programming is one of the most significant contributions Kalani makes to our local community.

Ukulele Workshop: Shape It Up, Baby! with Brad Bordessa

1:00pm - 2:15pm
Other Kalani - see description

Twist and shout!  (Not really.) In this workshop you will learn how to cut your work in half quarter eight...by 12, and you won't have to twist or shout at all! Brad Bordessa will show you how to take a chord that you already know and shift it into something else without even changing its shape. You will learn where the "root" is (and why that's important) and how to move it up and down the fret board, which will expand your musical horizons infinitely. This is a great workshops for beginning ukulele players because it will, quite simply and easily, launch you into the stratosphere of the number of chords you will have under your belt and the number of chords you'll be able to figure out on your own. This is a two-part workshop, with the first part also being open to the Kalani community. However, you do not have to take both parts in order to get a lot out of it.

Facilitator: Brad Bordessa

Brad BordessaOne of the things we try to do consistently is identify new talent and give their careers a little boost through the opportunity to teach, hone their skills, and work alongside some of the finest practitioners in the field at our retreats. Our candidate for this year's Hawai'i Island 'Ukulele Retreat was, hands down, Brad Bordessa.

Brad joined us last year for just one day and, quite frankly, knocked our socks off with subject matter that no one else was even looking at and a unique approach to teaching that his students raved about.  He is also a fine musician. But don't take our word for it, here's what James Hill had to say: “Brad is a seeker. He’s hungry for the sweeter lick, the longer line and the deeper groove.” Needless to say, we are delighted to bring him back this year in a much bigger capacity.

Brad first picked up the ukulele after his family moved to the Big Island of Hawai'i when he was 12 years old and soon afterward attended Keoki Kahumoku's 'Ohana Music and Lifestyle Workshop. That set the tone for the rest of his life. He was soon giving lessons at the local youth center in Honoka'a on the east side of Hawai'i Island, at an after school program at Waimea Middle School, and at the North Hawai'i Education and Research Center. Inevitably, he found himself teaching at the Kahumoku Workshop and was invited to tour Hawai'i Island with Keoki  Kahumoku on his Jam for Japan Tour. He was then chosen to be one of the 26 first cohorts in the Institute of Hawaiian Music at the University of Hawai'i Maui College and not only graduated with honors, but was also named the Most Outstanding Student in the class.

We think Brad has a very bright future to look forward to, and we are honored to play this very tiny little role in it.

Ukulele Workshop : An Octopus's Garden & Beyond the Reef with Robyn Kneubuhl

1:15pm - 4:00pm
Other Kalani - see description

Octopus's Garden - 1:15 PM - 2:30 PM / $10


There's a reason so many Beatles' tunes have found their way into Jumpin' Jim Beloff's "Daily Ukulele Songbooks."  It's as though they were written to be played on the 'ukulele--a fact that was probably confirmed the afternoon George Harrison visited Liz and Jim Beloff at their home to while away an afternoon talking story, strumming ukes, and singing songs. Well, here's an opportunity for you, too, to join Jumpin' Jim and play through an "Octopus's Garden" of classic Beatles' tunes, arranged especially for the 'ukulele, but with a little twist...a few ideas for intros and outros and strumming and picking alternatives that will give your playing a little more verve and feeling. Not only that you'll have a chance to strum along with, and learn from, the fellow who did, quite literally, write the book.....make that many books.

Beyond the Reef - 2:45 PM - 4:00 PM / $10


One of the most beautiful songs ever recorded (Bing Crosby, Elvis Presley, Andy Williams, and more), Beyond the Reef, by Canadian composer Jack Pitman, is also a wonderful platform from which to explore minor seventh chords in the first and second positions. Sound tricky?  Not really. Remember Am7? (If you don't, it's all strings open.)  Roy Sakuma describes the minor 7th chords as "Colorfully active with the soft tones of Autumn." But in this workshop, Robyn Kneubuhl will show you how they can be used to enhance a song that already has a beautiful, haunting melody line.  At the same time you will learn different techniques for holding multiple strings with one finger.  A great opportunity for advanced beginner - intermediate players. And don't forget to bring your sense of humor, adventure, and romance.

Facilitator: Robyn Kneubuhl

An accomplished musician and dancer (and adored by her students), Robyn Kneubuhl has a musical lineage that goes way back.  Her mother,  Emma Veary, was a headliner at the Monarch Room of the Royal Hawaiian Hotel, the Halekulani, the Hilton Hawaiian Village, and frequent a frequent guest star on the original “Hawai`i Five-O.” Her mother's musical gifts were not wasted on Robyn, who embodies the beauty of the golden days of Waikiki through her music and dance.

Robyn is a life-long student of Hawaiian arts and culture, a composer, hula  and `ukulele instructor, generous with her time and talent, and eager to share her knowledge with her students. She currently resides on Maui and is one third of the “Hula Honeys” who have three popular CD’s out: Life Just Got Sweeter,  Girl Talk, and A Hui Hou. Robyn has taught hula and `ukulele for Lark Camp and Keola Beamer’s Aloha Music Camps and has joined us several times at the  Wine Country ‘UkuleleFestival. It only seems natural to have her us join us on Hawai'i Island in October, for the  Hawai'i Island Ukulele Retreat.

Here's a little sample from the Hula Honeys' Life Just Got Sweeter CD.

Ecstatic Dance Guidelines:
- Move however you wish.
- No talking in the space.
- Respect yourself and one another.
- Ecstatic Dance is a drug and alcohol-free space.
- Please refrain from photos, video, and shoes and scents.
- Many people dance in their own space, and others share their space with another.
- To engage in a dance with someone, use sensitivity: are they open to sharing space with me? Mirror movements, offer a hand, brush by, make eye contact, and see and feel how they respond.
- If you would rather not dance with someone, or are ending a dance with someone, simply thank them by placing your hands in prayer at your heart in recognition. 

Note: For safety and liability reasons, we are not able to accommodate children at Ecstatic Dance. If you do bring a child, that child must be accompanied by an adult at all times outside the dance space.
