Oli (Hawaiian Chant)

Anyone who hears authentic Hawaiian chanting for the first time – or the hundredth time – can be struck with awe at its soul-shaking beauty, and possibly feel what locals call “chicken skin”. In each Oli chanting lesson we learn a bit of Hawaiian language while simultaneously picking up pieces of Hawaiian history, legends, values and a deep sense of place. From the name of a wind that graces a particular spot to the fragrance of its foliage, Hawaiian language and oli chants help us to remember or to imagine ourselves in the locations we are describing. Chanting an oli is an empowering exercise for the voice that can increase our self-confidence.

Chanting was an integral part of ancient Hawaiian life, as artistic expression and also to convey history and genealogy, especially before the written Hawaiian language, and it remains a rich repository of Hawaiian knowledge to this day.

Learning to chant oli can be a connecting, lively, and spiritually moving experience, and can now be enjoyed interactively online with Still & Moving.

Positive Intelligence (PQ) is a comprehensive program for developing mental fitness. Our mental fitness allows us to respond to life’s challenges with a positive rather than negative mindset.

Mental fitness helps us get out of the ways that we habitually sabotage ourselves and instead cultivate our inner sage who sees opportunity in anything life throws at us. PQ (Positive Intelligence) enhances our career, our relationships and our sense of peace and wellbeing in the world.
