“Coming Home to the Truth of who you really are is your birthright. Awaken to the sacred ground of Love, Awareness and Joy that was always there, perhaps unrecognized, yet abiding and full beyond description. This Truth of your Being reveals itself as Simple Silence, Infinite Wisdom and Boundless Compassion. I offer you teachings and poetry of Awakening as an invitation into the Truth of your Being. By neither bypassing nor transcending your humanness, but embracing it fully, the Love you are flowers and extends across the immensity of time and space touching the greatest and smallest of things.”

Walking in the Wild in North Kohala

At Kohala Institute at ‘Iole in North Kohala

From 8:30 AM to 10:30 AM (We depart promptly at 8:30AM, and be aware that the hike will end at 10:30 AM and not 10 AM.)

Experience the beauty of the land on these silent meditative community hikes.

The hike will begin with a brief introduction to mindfulness and silent walking together. After a short meditation we will head out into nature. The route of our walking will be different each month, and not strenuous. The hike will conclude at the Hale with a few minutes of silence together. Unless the weather is particularly inclement, we will walk, come rain or shine! The weather has yet to inhibit us! Please bring a hat, hiking shoes/boots, sunscreen, bottled water, a little towel or cushion for rest stops out in nature, raingear, mosquito repellent and possibly a small hiking backpack if you like.
