Harmonic Healing Workshop with Yumi and Gen Morita
Date/Time: To be announced
The Dragonfly Ranch: Healing Arts Center in Honaunau is proud to host the healing duo of Yumi and Gen Morita. They have been offering short Harmonics Healing introductory workshops each month at the Dragonfly followed by one-on-one consultations in an open clinic style.
The workshop consists of a presentation along with demonstrations and practices for participants. Knowledge will be shared of anatomy, including where organs are and what they do. A Japanese method called Soto Therapy that uses specific heat applications on organs will be taught. Sotai Exercise, how to move the body in gentle, comfortable positions for improved healing, will also be shared.
Gen and Yumi have been practicing and teaching this complete healing system based on traditional Japanese medicine for 20 years, and have led over 200 workshops. Both are currently directors of Hawaii College of Oriental Medicine (HICOM) which is based in Kailua, Kona.
After the free workshop, the Morita healing team will be available for half-hour private consultations. Harmonics Healing holds the principle that since the body tends towards wellness and realigning with natural energies, this technique will encourage swift healings. Gen Morita says, "Giving the body the proper care and nutrition will create health for our us and our environment. Using 'Life Energy Testing,' a simple energetic feedback system similar to muscle testing, Yumi acts as the interpreter to help patients determine foods, medicines and behaviors that will support or harm the body's natural healing process."
Presentation and workshop will be from 1-3 PM one Sunday a month, with refreshments included. The open clinic will be directly following. Barbara Moore, soul proprietor of the Dragonfly Ranch: Healing Arts Center says, "It is a privilege to host these amazing healers who moved here after the disaster in Japan last year. Gifting donations is appropriate and will be gratefully appreciated by these talented healers who are blessing us with their gifts." To learn more about this healing couple's use of subtle yet powerful healing techniques, see their site on the web at harmonicshealinghawaii.blogspot.com.
Anyone wishing to attend is asked to come a few minutes early to the this center for healing. The Dragonfly Ranch is located at 84-5146 Keala O Keawe Road, just above the historic Pu'uhonua O Honaunau National Historical Park, 1 1/2 miles down from the Honaunau post office. Guests are welcome to come early to relax and look around as well as stay late to visit and spend time in the productive organic garden. In the "Aloha Aina" tradition, visitors are welcome to "give to the land" or contribute to the calabash before taking from the overflowing organic vegetables. Moore and her ohana team of this award-winning B&B welcome visitors to walk the labyrinth, and tour the rooms as well as the healing spa facilities.

Doctors Giving Five Island Wide Talks for People Who Want to be Pro-Active about Their Wellness
Do you need help sleeping? Want healthy digestion and elimination? How about mental clarity and balanced emotions?
Leaders in new-paradigm thinking about aging healthfully will be on the Big Island leading a series of presentations on regenerative medicine and natural ways to promote wellness.
Returning to lecture on the Big Island for the sixth time, internationally celebrated MD, Ph. D. research scientist and anti-aging specialist, Dr. Shanhong Lu, uses an informative power point presentation to show exactly how toxins and stress negatively affect body chemistry. She then offers solutions that purify and re-balance the body. Dr. Lu, who practices medicine in Mt. Shasta, has sparked a health renaissance with her visual, witty and science-based public appearances, which have inspired thousands of people to take charge of their wellness.
According to Dr. Lu, her mission is to "empower each individual to awaken the doctor within, giving the body a chance to heal and live at it's optimal potential." She gives positive suggestions about how to heal and balance by supporting the body with a paradigm shift called "Awaken, Cleanse, and Feed." Originally from China where her mother is a heart specialist and her grandmother was a midwife and a traditional Chinese medicine practitioner, Dr Lu integrates Eastern and Western medicine to optimally provide individuals the best of both worlds. She says, "I want people to take charge of their health and become their own doctors."
Dr. Sharon Olson, an integrative osteopathic family practice physician from Waimea, is giving an introduction for Dr. Lu's anti-aging lectures. Like Dr. Lu, Dr. Olson believes in promoting proactive healing through integrative medicine. Dr. Olson says, "We have found a program that uses scientific breakthrough technology to enhance the body's own natural healing ability." These two integrative physicians emphasize the importance of this information, especially when we recognize that we are living in a "sea of toxic chemicals" (including vog), experiencing chronically high levels of stress.
Joining Drs. Lu and Olson will be George Hall, co-founder of Orenda International, a paradigm-shifting company that exists to help people restore not only control over their health, but also their time, finances and careers. Of Orenda, an unconventional love-based corporation which integrates philanthropy within its daily operations, George Hall says
"After meeting Orenda co-founder brothers, George and Bob Hall four years ago" says Barbara Moore, "Soul" Proprietor of Dragonfly Ranch, "I became convinced that Orenda is a company I dearly love. I feel especially honored to introduce George Hall to this community as I know him to be an authentic gentle man of impeccable integrity." Moore adds, "By thoroughly investigating nutritional advances that allow us to deal with toxins and stress we are involuntarily subjected to, this company has given me tools that vastly improved my life."
The Hall brothers also share knowledge and profits broadly through the Heart of Orenda Fund, which supports charities like Smile Train, Child Help-USA, Doctors Without Borders and Vitamin Angels, among others. Moore adds, "Thanks to Dr. Lu, it has been my privilege to introduce my friends, doctors and the Big Island community at large, to an amazing team of healers and healing tools. The Hall brothers have generously combined cutting-edge health science and good business practices to truly help heal the world."
George Hall and Drs. Lu and Olson will give five talks on the Big Island, starting at the Dragonfly Ranch: Healing Arts Center on Feb. 19th from 6 to 8. A short presentation will be given at the Regency at Hulualalai on Feb. 20th from 3 to 4pm followed by a longer talk that day at the Kona Beach Hotel yoga studio from 6 to 8pm. In Hilo, the lecture will be held at the University Campus Center, Room 306 from 6 to 8pm on Thursday, Feb. 21. The final presentation will be hosted at the Waimea Events Salon from 6 to 8pm on Friday, Feb. 22.
All five lectures are free and open to the public. Free samples of healthy "undutched" chocolate and high antioxidant aronia berry juice will be served for refreshments.
