Have you wanted to learn easy techniques at home to bring more peace into your mind and heart?
Do you desire to build more of a connection and relationship with the elements of nature?
Are you looking for an easy way to meditate and receive messages from spirit and the elements?
If so, this video is a wonderful tool for self-discovery at home with nature as an inspiration. Scenes were filmed on location at various North Carolina State Parks to honor the elements and help you connect to them. Pictures of Hawai'i were also included to bring in the energies of Aloha right into your home! This is an instructional DVD on the Hawaiian Energy Dance Kalana Hula. The sequences within the dance may be used to bring calmness and peace into your mind, increase your personal connection to the elements (Fire, Water, Wind, Stone, Plant, Animal, and Human), and help you remember more about yourself.
There are two breathing exercises and a moving form similar to Tai Chi that Amanda demonstrates and guides you through with verbal and visual cues. The breathing exercises may be done on their own or together, anytime of the day. When all of the segments are combined, it becomes a beautiful moving meditation. The entire sequence ends with a Hawaiian Blessing that is explained in both Hawaiian and English. There is also a bonus summary explaining various aspects of each segment that Amanda, having practiced it for almost a decade, has discovered.
Amanda's instructions within the video provide you with the foundation to eventually expand into your own meditative dance with the elements. This is a version that has evolved for Amanda, over years of practice and teaching it based upon variations taught by her teachers. You are invited to learn this style and build upon the sequences, modifying it to suit your personality.
Filmed in 2014.
