Makahiki is celebrated during the winter months when Makali`i (Pleiades) rises at sunset and nourishing rains cover the islands. Traditionally, it is a time of peace and healing. In ancient times, warfare ceased and food production slowed to allow all the chance to rest.
Join us for an afternoon of events celebrating the cultivation of peace.

Lomilomi for Keiki

with Kumu Malia Helela

1:00 -2:00 pm


Babies are shaped by movement as they grow in the womb and are carried and cradled in arms as infants. Children adore massage for the relief it brings to growing pains and for the comfort found in loving hands.This introductory class will cover the basics of keiki massage for infants, toddlers and older children. Children love to give massages (and family members love to receive them) so we will also cover great massage techniques like shaking and chopping that kids can do too!

Malia Helela has been a licensed massage therapist for 16 years, kumu hula and manager of Malu Healing Room at Still & Moving Center.

Kukulu Pono is a culture-based agreement-building process that draws inspiration from Ho`oponopono, a Hawaiian system of conflict resolution. Using concepts like mihi, kala and `oki, participants will learn how to apply peace making practices to everyday situations.

Laulani Teale is a peacemaker, artist, activist and mom from Ko’olaupoko, O’ahu who is committed to supporting realistic, non-adversarial solutions for family conflicts and creating “win-win” solutions for protecting native rights and culture. Through the Peace Warriors program, she educates youth in peace-building skills and concepts.

Lessons of Aloha Workshop

with Brother Noland

5:00 – 6:30 pm


Music Concert to follow at 7:15 pm (see below)

$20 Concert

$35 for both Brother Noland events


Through aloha, we learn that we are connected to everything in the universe. Authentic aloha is a reciprocal thing where aloha aku…aloha mai. Love extends and returns in the same manner as ocean waves. Brother Noland brings a vast breadth of experience to this workshop on relating to each other with aloha through reconnection with the natural environment.

Music is the thread that has always run through and held Brother Noland’s life together. He was born and raised in Kalihi-Palama, one of Hawaii’s economically poorest neighborhoods. He found his way out through his art and culture and now helps at risk youth define their choices and make a quality connection to the community. His music always carries a message of positive reflection, even though they are rooted in the reality we live in today. Another aspect of Noland’s life is his involvement with The Tracking Project. Founded as a non-profit organization in 1986 by John Stokes, The Tracking Project (TTP), has worked with community educators and Native elders from around the world to design a series of teachings which connect individuals directly to the natural world. Discovering and identifying this part of his life has awakened parts of his spirit that again enhance his musical creativity.
