What will you learn on the retreat 

On this retreat, you will have the opportunity to reconnect with the ancient wisdom that is present within your own cells. Too often, we are taught to privilege the mind over the body and to trust conceptual knowledge over our own innate wisdom. This retreat will offer you a chance to shift your perspective and make contact with a deeper intelligence that emerges from our embodied experience.

 

Through a series of somatic exercises and Temple Style Lomi Lomi bodywork practices, we will help you to bring your physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual aspects into coherence. In this state of resonance, we will be able to approach the bodywork of Ancient Lomi Lomi—or The Pathway to The Stars—from a place of greater clarity and understanding. By reconnecting with the wisdom of the body, we can access a deeper level of understanding and connection with Life itself.

The coursework is designed to be spiral and non-linear, allowing students to review material as they progress through the program. This approach allows for spontaneous discussions, individual expression, and specialised learning. Throughout the day, students give and receive massage to each other, reviewing strokes previously learnt as well as learning new strokes. This hands-on approach is repeated daily until all back and front strokes have been mastered. Students are encouraged to absorb the massage skills and techniques through practical application – touch, feel, movement, and sensation in the body. In the true Spirit of Aloha, students learn to work together in a loving, caring, kind, relaxed, open, co-operative and forgiving environment for the sustained benefit of all. 

The Four Major Topics covered in the syllabus work together, influencing one another in a seamless and spiralling progression to facilitate increasing self-development, depth of understanding, technical skill, and inner expression. Synthesizing ancient with modern, this Practitioner Training is a realistic and practical interpretation of traditional massage from Hawaii.

1. The first Major Topic, Spiritual Foundations, provides a comprehensive survey of the native Hawaiian spiritual tradition including an exploration of the four major guiding principles or pillars central to this tradition: aloha (love), kuleana (responsibility), lokahi (unity), and pono (harmony/balance).

2. The second Major Topic, Energy Anatomy & Physiology, presents Western scientific explanations for the phenomena that are integral to energy-based bodywork modalities like Hawaii Massage. It covers such topics as the electrical nature of the body, the energy field surrounding the body (aura), the development off self-awareness and overcoming obstacles to learning and empowerment, discovering the healing power of Aloha, forgiveness, surrender and co-operation, integrating Hawaiian wisdom into lifestyle, deepening sensitivity, intuition and self-confidence.

3. The third Major Topic, Lomilomi Massage Theory & History, offers students a detailed overview of the theory and history behind this unique form of massage. It includes information on the various styles of Lomilomi practiced in Hawaii today as well as an exploration of its roots in Polynesian healing traditions.

4. The fourth and final Major Topic, Practical Applications, provides students with opportunities to put their theoretical knowledge into practice through hands-on learning experiences. Students will have ample opportunity to give and receive Lomilomi massages under the guidance of experienced Tutors. By the end of the course, students will have acquired the skills necessary to perform a basic Lomilomi massage.

Aloha

When we live in Aloha and Pono, we are in harmony with ourselves, each other and the natural world around us. We are able to see the beauty and wonder in all things, we rise above judgment, and focus on what truly matters.

Pono

The Aloha spirit is alive and well within each one of us - it is the very foundation of our being. Pono means to live in harmony with all of creation - to be in right relationship with everything and everyone around us.

Mahalo

This powerful Hawaiian spiritual practice can help us to remember who we really are and why we are here. It is a gift from the heart of Hawaii that can heal our individual lives and our world. Mahalo nui loa for this very special opportunity!
