Join Kumu Paʻa Julia Nālani 51st Generation Teacher from the Lineage of Kumu Paʻa Nui Lawrence Kalainia Kamani Aki, Halawa Valley, Molokai Hawaii, the SoHAD Wise Guides and Friends of the SoHAD for a day of Retreat & Reflection.

Water the Seed Virtual Retreat
We are woven from light, what light? The light of unconditional love.
Through the trials and tribulations of every day life, we forget this sometimes. When we Retreat, we create space for our rememberance – of our connections, our sacredness. Our search for our gifts, our offering to ourselves, our lives, our families, our communities and the return to the Cosmos itself – is found in this space of rememberance. We are part of the memory and we reclaim ourselves within it.
We roam our wilderness.
That is why we Retreat, to sink in, to close the door on distraction, interruption, other doingness. We Retreat to roam into the wilderness of our inner landscape, to be curious, adventurous, wonderous, discoverous, freeing our tethers of the unnecessary
We freefall into our depth.
We Retreat so we can freefall into that place within our depth where we can imagine possibilities, experiment with ideas, and dream rich, diverse and creative solutions
We step in gently.
We find our way with steps guided by our Ancestors; we feel their breath, hear their voice and follow. Our caring is for the Truth of ourselves, our intention is for living it forward
We forge our hearth.
We tend our virgin fire. Our HEARTh. We care for it. We learn to water the seed. Fire and Water are not opposite. They are Nature’s abundance of pure form. We water the seed. Sacred water, sacred fire. To awaken the stars for billions we start with ourselves…
Our Teachings share that we are the light of Aloha – of unconditional love. We are born with this Light. It can get diminished along the way. We mourn and grieve our diminishing; we call out into night, into the Darkness, wondering if we have been heard. Our Ancestors hear. They always hear, but can we Listen? If your calling is loud, you will not hear over the cry of your Separation, for that is what grieves you, haunts you, torments you. Our Teachings tell us we must learn how to forget, so we can remember, and we must remember to forget.
Ceremony: Welsh Druidry
Our Retreat opens with a Welsh Druidry Ceremony which you can join in too from your own space. Then come inside the classroom to learn about Welsh Spirituality…

Our Seeds are not our Values, they’re so much more. When we find them, we make ourselves more real, more whole than we’ve ever been. Each is sent as a guide from our Ancestors…

Water the Seed, each session inspires your Light:
The Healing Force
we will listen for the steps of the Ancestors
Drink from the Well
we will water ourselves with knowledge
Sit patiently through the dark
until we recognise the light of dawn of wisdom
We will fly with our opposites
meeting ourselves with acceptance
We will ask for what we really want
and let ourselves be pulled toward it
We will turn ourselves upside down
let our troubles open the door, hearing the voices of the Ancestors walking our road with us

When we do things together from our Collective Essence, we create a movement of collective joy
From Rumi: “When your heart is cleansed of everything you
think you are, you’ll see yourself as an old beloved soul. It’s not possible to see yourself without a mirror so gaze at the beloved; let his face become your mirror.”
Let’s reset 2022 …
…we have all been living through a time of upheaval, strangeness for some, frustration, fear, resignation, hoplessness and anger for others. But we cannot continue to take that forward into 2022. We must heal ourselves, we must realign, we must free ourselves, we must become our full blooming, our potential, our invitation to turn the beat around.
We must heal our separation …
…our separation keeps us in a state of pain; we cannot experience or know our light when we are in this state. We must take steps to move out of it and enter into the state of what our Hawaiian Ancestors called lōkahi – unity, harmony, oneness and balance – and live our lives from it. Lōkahi starts with ourselves and ripples gently into the world around us. That is how we achieve world change. The whole world exists within us…
