"Hula is the language of the heart and therefore the heartbeat of the Hawaiian people."
~ David (Kawika) La`amea Kalakaua,, King of Hawai`i, 1874 to 1891

The beauty and grace of hula embodies all that is Hawai'i. Born from the goddess Laka on the island of Moloka'i, hula was a expression of history, religion and the human spirit, and was a vital part of Hawai'i's long tradition of oral histories, handed down from generation to generation.

Come find your essence in the heartbeat of Hawai'i.

Natural Building with Tim Rieth
Learn about Natural Building, a revolution with earth, stone, wood, and straw. Using these elemental materials people have been sheltering themselves for millennia, and their application in the 21st century is just as relevant and needed as the past. In an age of concrete, steel, engineered lumber, formaldehyde glues, mortgages, and homelessness, these simple materials and methods of construction can empower individuals, release the stranglehold of banks, and build community while creating environmentally appropriate, healthful, and beautiful homes.



The Hapa Haole genre can be described as "songs from very talented people of Hawaii, great memories and just a whole lot of fun!"

Let your next event be a memorable one with lessons and perfomances by 2003 Miss Sophisticated Hula Ku'ulei. A professional Entertainment Director and hula soloist, Ku'ulei has trained with Kumu Hula Victoria Holt Takamine, and has performed with her halau in multiple Merrie Monarch and King Kamehameha Hula Competitions and Prince Lot Hula Festivals.

Ku'ulei's professional career began in 1984 as a solo hula dancer on the Royal Prince Yacht Dinner cruises. She has performed at the Paradise Cove Luau, as a hula soloist at the Chief's Hut Restaurant- Outrigger Reef Hotel in Waikiki and as the entertainment director/solo dancer for the Chief's Hut.

In August, 2003, Ku'ulei was awarded the title, �Miss Sophisticated Hula� at the 1st annual Hapa Haole Hula Competition, sponsored by the Pa`i Foundation and held at the Sheraton Moana Hotel. Ku'ulei is still actively involved with this project as her halau and the Pa`i Foundation continue to produce the annual competition in a concerted effort to keep the "Hapa Haole Hula" era alive!

Since early 2007 she has been the Entertainment Director/solo hula dancer for the Ho`okipa Aloha Program on board the three NCL cruise ships, which sail throughout Hawaii Nei, and still freelances as a solo hula dancer for Hawaiian entertainment programs in Hawaii, and enjoys performing hula occasionally for the Royal Hawaiian Band.

The highlight of her hula career occurred on August 25, 2007, when she was honored as a Ho`opa`a with an Uniki Ceremony conducted by her Kumu Hula.

Throughout her entertainment career, she has continued her education with her Kumu Hula in her Halau, Pua Ali`i Ilima, and is a substitute teacher at the University of Hawai`i, Manoa and Leeward Community College. She has taught hula at the University High Lab School and is currently teaching hula to elementary school students with The HYOC DOE Outreach program headed by Choir Director Nola Nahulu.


Raymond Saul Uwekalanikauponomekaloha Alejo

Raymond, also known by his given hula name, Pono, has always been on a journey of spiritual growth and healing. The seventh child of eight, Pono's instruction began at the age of nine when his mother first trained him in her brand of massage. As his first teacher, his mother's guidance has remained close to his heart: "My mother teaches me the power of humbleness and how to use this knowledge as protection and guidance to give to others. She and my grandmother (who passed in 1998), are known for their craft as dream interpreters."

Pono left Hawai'i in 1978. He received his nursing degree in Seattle at the age of 25 and specialized in caring for patients with traumatic head and spinal cord injuries. Ever on a quest for growth, he furthered his education and became a licensed massage therapist in Washington State. In 1989 he started his own business, the Broadway Massage Clinic, successfully delivering care until 1995.

In 1988, he met his second spiritual teacher, Kevin Moreland DC, who taught Pono how to access different energies using mudras. "Kevin changed my life and taught me gifts only used in the greatest of humbleness. He is one of the most compelling people in my life."

Pono returned to Hawai'i in 1998. resuming his position as the kahu of his family and caring for his parents. Here he began his hula journey, studying under Kumu Hula Tony Conjugacion. Kumu Tony gave Pono his hula name, UweKalani Kauponomekealoha. "Kumu Tony deepened my understanding of life through the teachings of hula. He afforded me grace, strength, and love that strongly affect my life's work."

The combination of his mother's training, his education in allopathic medicine and his teachings from Kevin Moreland and Kumu Tony Conjugacion has enabled Pono to create a unique style of health care that offers an alternative way to approach well being.


November 3, 2007, 7 - 9 p.m.

Rhythm: the movement or procedure with uniform recurrence of strong and weak elements. Health: the presence or absence of well being. We usually don't put the two ideas together but when we think of the way that we go through life, a lot of our health depends on rhythm.

Our hearts beat at a steady rhythm, but when the heart skips beats in can mean several things: it can mean figuratively that we are going through excitement and usually in a romantic way such as when we say when I saw him or her, my heat skipped a beat. But when heart is tends to skip beats on its own, a lot of time it means there is trouble brewing. Our heart becomes dysrhythmic. And at times that can be harmful in many ways.

The brain has fluid around it and some experts say that the fluid around our brain or the cerebral spinal fluid, pumps throughout our brain in it won rhythm, and when that is disrupted it usually means that neurologically we have some kind of ill process going on. And if we don't walk in the familiar rhythm that we set for our pace, and cadence, we often fall or trip.

Join Pono to learn more about using rhythm to care for our health and ourselves.
