This conversation is about the power of human touch, our body and spiritual transformation, friendships, and relationships. Theresa is my friend from college, who has made her way into Thai massage and apothecary. We talk in detail about the impact of touch on the brain and body, and reflect on the challenges of raising girls in our current culture.

Why get a massage? What is the difference between a traditional massage and Lomi Lomi massage? Enjoy a conversation with Kau’i (Henrylyn Kauʻi Auwae), founder of Ola Mai I Loko Mai. Henrylyn Kauʻi is a Kanaka Maoli Cultural Practitioner, who teaches and shares her ʻohana lineage on numerous cultural aspects, such as Lomi, Hula, ‘Ōlelo Hawai‘i, and Hoʻoponopono.
Hear about her reasoning for massage and the meaning of ‘aloha’ in her native culture. She brings it together so nicely: mind, body, spirit!
After my lovely conversation with Julia Freeland about her life and her book,
‘Take Your Shoes off First,’ we had a nice heart to heart that inspired a joint holiday challenge for our people.
We all get to choose where we spend our time and energy with every decision we make. It’s nice to have a fresh perspective, and physical activity gives us that in so many ways. I talk about the body and chemicals it signals to the brain body in this one.
More to come on the holiday challenge, going from Nov 24-Jan 5, 2022.
