Holistic Human®

Embody Your Spirit

of Unlimited Potential

 

The most important aspect of the Holistic Human® is the integration of the Human Body and your Spirit of Unlimited Potential. 


Understanding this integration and learning how to apply it in your daily life is the foundation for creating your Unlimited Potential as a Human Being. 


This Initial Training for the Holistic Human® gives you the opportunity to physically reconnect with your Spirit of Unlimited Potential that naturally exist in the human body.  This is provided through wellness classes, workshops, experiential training, and small group excursions, using the power of Unconditional Love®, intuitive body movement, Applied Meditation Therapy® and all that is Hawaii.


This is a training that helps you recover an unconditional trust in your body and its ability to accept all of your life experiences.


This is not using the thinking mind against the conditioned mind to achieve your goals and your true happiness in life.


This is using your Body’s Natural Unconditioned way of processing information to allow you to naturally move toward your goals and true happiness.


Below is the itinerary for achieving Integration of Your Body and Your Unlimited Potential as a Human Being.

Day Adventures:

Your adventure begins when you step foot into a Pinzgauer.  A six wheel drive Swiss Army vehicle. You drive down the street for about 10 minutes, then get off the road. Your Guide will throw the Pinzgauer into Six Wheel Drive and you will head up along the North Kohala mountainside for a 30 minute off-road safari. Look carefully, you will probably see wild pigs and wild cows.







Once you are on the course you will hike for about 3 minutes to your first zipline. This is our Keiki (child) line designed to get your “feet wet”; all the rest get longer and higher. After the second Zipline you will cross a hand carved bridge that sits on top of the beautiful waterfall that you are about to zip across.








Three more ziplines will take you to a “Mac Nut Hut”, a cantilevered pavilion that overlooks a 32' waterfall. Here you will sit back and talk story while cracking fresh macadamia nuts and eating locally made baked goods and organic fruits.







Next you look down upon a beautiful stream full of dancing eddies from a suspension bridge. The last two Ziplines are certain to take your breath away with views of A waterfall, Kohala Lighthouse, and Maui.








You will end the tour with another off-road safari down the mountainside.

The one thing that keeps Unlimited Potential separate and hidden is the misunderstanding of your bodies experience to fear.  This day adventure focuses on your ability to accept the sensation of fear, not from the limitations of your conditioned thinking mind and reactive behaviors, but rather to embrace the fear Naturally from an Unconditioned side of yourself that is your Unlimited Potential.

Safari Zipline Adventure:

Wapio Valley Adventure

On horse back an experienced guide takes you on a journey through a lush tropical paradise of jungle trails, fresh water streams, taro fields, magnificent waterfalls and incredible vistas. Only in Waipi'o Valley is there such a variety of historical and spiritual places to discover, experience and appreciate.










For a sense of how Hawaii used to be and an adventure not easily forgotten, Waipi'o Valley, an enchanting place that means "land of curving water". From the valley lookout the land drops sharply for nearly a thousand feet. Below is an emerald landscape as fresh and verdant as Eden. A broading sense of Waipi'o's rich historic past emanates from the valley, which is still, except for the pounding of steep waves on the black sand beach and the timeless motion of farmers tending their taro patches.










In ancient times taro cultivation and fishing were the traditional lifestyle of the people who settled here and prospered into a complex and powerful kingdom. Waipi'o is known as the “Valley of the Kings” because so many important rulers came into power here.  Waipi'o contained five major heiaus or temples of the highest class including Pakalana, or place of refuge built in the 12th century. The spirits of the past are still felt here today. Powerful are the forces of nature in Waipi'o. Some of the most spectacular waterfalls in Hawaii grace its cliffs, like the 2,000 ft double falls Hi'ilawe, and Nanewe.

Consciously reconnecting with an Unconditional side of yourself is an essential for unlocking an Unlimited Potential that is a part of your naturally existing Unconscious.   Waipio Valley, with all its wonders, provides a great opportunity to travel not only back in time, but into the depth of your unconscious, creating the right set of circumstances to consciously and physically achieve a solid reconnection with this Unconditional side of yourself.

Waterfall Adventure:

One of the best experiences for creating an intimate relationship with your limitations, is a waterfall hike.  Waterfalls create an opportunity to experience a washing away of limitations, leaving room for Unlimited Potential.  This adventure is a chance to have an intimate relationship with physically accepting that which is limiting you.  By accepting a limitation your body will naturally release it.  This is because the misunderstanding or fear around the limitation is holding the limitation in your body.  Physically accepting the fear around the limitation helps to dissolve it, allowing it to be washed away.  

Immerse yourself in Kohala's stunning beauty and rich history. On a fun off-road adventure and relaxed trail walk, experience dramatic views of Pololu Valley, charming foot bridges, historic taro terraces and intimate waterfalls. With an opportunity to swim at a waterfall.








The adventure begins with a wonderful drive where you will pass through the quaint plantation towns of Hawi and Kapaau, site of the life-size statue of King Kamehameha I. At the end of the road a brief rest stop at the historic Kohala Mule Station offers one of Hawaii's most spectacular coastal views. Then the real fun begins, with a bumpy but short off-road drive in our 6WD Pinzgauer on an old cane road over private ranchland to our trailhead.








Out of the Pinzgauer, you'll step back into the early 1900's, when plantation owners began construction of the Kohala Ditch Trail to bring much needed water to the sugar cane fields. Along the 1.5 mile loop trail you'll see tunnels blasted and carved from solid rock, walk over an aqueduct on two bridges, and learn the story of the tremendous effort it took to build an irrigation system stretching over 22 miles. You'll delve into ancient Hawaiian history as well, visiting a former taro farming site just off the path. Seven beautiful waterfalls grace the trail. You can take a refreshing dip in the last pool we visit, and play under a refreshing cascade. With stunning mountain panoramas, green valleys and pasturelands, and of course the abundant water, the Kohala Waterfalls Adventure is a fascinating way for young and old to experience Kohala's "story of water."

Dolphin Adventure:

Come and join us in the pacific paradise of Hawaii...

Tuesday Evening session


Wednesday Evening

Traditional Lua, Hula, and Blessing

There are many styles of hula. They are commonly divided into two broad categories: Ancient hula, as performed before Western encounters with Hawaiʻi, is called kahiko. It is accompanied by chant and traditional instruments.  Hula as it evolved under Western influence, in the 19th and 20th centuries, is called ʻauana.


Ancient Hawaiians had no written language. Instead, all communication beyond the spoken word took place in the form of chants and the dance called hula. Hula and its accompanying chants recorded Hawaiian genealogy, mythology, and prayers of the heart and mind. The hula was the means by which the culture, history, stories and almost every aspect of Hawaiian life was expressed and passed down through generations.


Hula is deeply serious and spiritual.  Hula is also raucous, silly and playful.  Hula is the lifeblood and the guardian of Hawaiian language, myth, history and genealogy. Hula is Hawai`i. Hula is life.


The night will end with a blessing from a Hawaiian Kahuna.

Thursday Evening
