Kahi Loa is a type of healing art form, from the Hawaiian Islands (Kauai). As within translated to mean "oneness through sacred energy" or "moving or flowing of life/energy". the Hawaiian language, words have many meanings. Kahi Loa may be Kahi Loa is very fluid with the practitioner moving their body and hands a majority of the session. It is an ancient form of vibrational energy movement, not to be confused with LomiLomi. Kahi Loa is done fully clothed, without the use of oils, and is a wonderful relaxing and energizing touch based modality. Some have said that the things taught within Huna, from Polynesia, including Kahi Loa, actually originated from the Star System of the Pleiades. Kahi Loa is simple to learn, easy and fun to do, and powerfully filled with love.
Kahi Loa helps to bring the body and spirit into alignment through the assistance of the elements and natural world. The practitioner helps the client connect to the elements with various loving touches simulating the 7 elements (Fire, Wind, Water, Stone, Plant, Animal and Human/Ancestors). Unlike other modalities, Kahi Loa involves a story the practitioner weaves together to help the client visualize the elements of nature. Sometimes this story is spoken aloud to create a beautiful scene. Other times there may be just one word here and there to help the client focus. A session may also be performed in silence. Communing with nature and the elements is a large focus of the Kahi Loa sessions and training's for both the giver and receiver. Ancient prayers in Hawaiian often begin and conclude the sessions for blessings and manifestations. Sound (our human voice) can carry energy vibrations for wellness and change. The Hawaiian language itself has magic within it as do the prayers (Hawaiian Pule).
The purpose of these classes, as Amanda teaches them, is to educate both new and established practitioners of vibrational energy modalities about a beautiful feminine modality, which has benefits for both the practitioner and client. The classes incorporate some aspects of what is known as Huna (Hawaiian Shamanism) although their primary focus is Kahi Loa. The Master/Teacher level dives more into various aspects of Huna which include tools for incorporating into one's daily life, as well as during private sessions to help clients shift their perspectives with Aloha and empower themselves. Kahi Loa may vary slightly from practitioner to practitioner as their own intuitive abilities and skills grow over time. Each session is unique and individualized but always filled with love from the elements and heart. These classes are the foundation, the beginning steps, to discovering more on your own as to what lies "hidden" with this beautiful practice and in your awakening cosmic heart.
