About Us

Guided mindfulness sessions may be beneficial in relieving stress and anxiety, help to calm the mind, refresh the body, and engage the spirit as part of everyday self-care, and total well-being. These sessions are a helpful companion for beginning meditators or at any stage of your practice. Guided sessions can be done while sitting or lying down, with your eyes either closed or open. Most of our sessions are short in duration (under 10-mins), and can be conveniently done anywhere, and anytime. The shortest is only 3-min, try it on your next walk going from one appointment to your next, or to help keep you centered, and provide balance before a meeting. Real, friendly, and caring vocals (designated special events and episodes with music/chant, and are longer) . These gently guided audio sessions are not intended for use while driving a vehicle or operating machinery--activities which need your full, and alert focus. In English, Tagalog, and ʻŌlelo Hawaiʻi. Be mindful, be aware, and breathe into a state of pure, and blissful sweet aloha with Ka Manu Iwa!

BoA SPECIAL EPISODE: Breath + Movement = Aloha

Aloha Aku, Aloha Mai--The Magic of Generosity (Ep. 017)

Generosity goes both ways. Aloha aku, aloha mai. Give love, receive love. As you receive, so must you give.Giving, helping, sharing...these are just some of the many facets of generosity. Health care workers, caregivers, teachers, employees in the service industry, parents, and all those who play roles of providing service to others--of their knowledge, energy, skills, labor, heart, spirit--are always in the giving end. They are our heroes, often remaining unsung. The smallest act of giving from their end can mean the difference of an entire lifetime for the recipient.We can sometimes forget that they are also human, and their needs have to be replenished and their generosity reciprocated. Most of the time, they will never ask for anything from others--you will never hear them request for anything.If you are the generous giver, this practice is for you. If you are on the receiving end of generosity, this practice is also for you.We all need to find the proper balance of giving and receiving. Nothing is ever for free, and we must not be complacent in always taking. As givers, we should be courageous in asking for what we need.There is never any shame in asking for what we need.Generosity goes both ways. Aloha aku, aloha mai. Give love, receive love. As you receive, so must you give.Breathe in a Breath of Aloha often, and breathe out generosity and loving-kindness...always.

Nānā Ka Maka--The Power of Observing (Ep. 016)

It is an old Hawaiian proverb: Nānā ka maka (look with the eyes). This very simple, and powerful activity allows us to learn, and be aware of who we are in relation to space. Observing without opinion or judgement is a continuous exercise in bringing awareness to our sense of place in the world. Practice daily, and practice often. A daily Breath of Aloha is a gift of good health and balance for the body, mind, and spirit.

Live the Life You Were Meant to Live

There may be times when we think that if we could have just one more little thing, that it will fill the gap--and make us feel better, and somehow complete us.We have forgotten that everything that we need in this life, is already within us. We have forgotten that we have so much to offer ourselves, and that we do not need to seek it elsewhere. We have forgotten how amazing, and incredible we already are on the inside.Visit this short and powerful affirmation--again and again--as a gentle reminder to yourself of how connected you are to everything, and how precious your life is to this world.Aloha from KaManuIwa!

Home is Where the Breath Is--Episode #014

Where is "home?" Is it a place, person, or is it the idea of only being surrounded by the familiar? There are times we are unable to answer "yes" to any of these, because life takes us to unfamiliar places, to meet unfamiliar people, and to experience unfamiliar events. And our first reaction is to resist the unfamiliar.We have forgotten that home is already within ourselves. And our breath can always bring us back to re-connect with our beauty, power, and spirit.Welcome home to love. Welcome home to your breath. Welcome home to Aloha!Come home, again, and again...with a Breath of Aloha, and Ka Manu Iwa.

Mama Said There'll Be Days Like This--Episode #012

Yes, it will happen. Those days and moments when we're just not into it, not feeling 100%, totally unmotivated. We're human, and it happens. These are the very moments when we need to reach out, and connect with our practice. This short 3-min "breather" can help get you there. Remember, we're all in this together. Let's breathe into those thoughts, and feelings...one moment at a time. Aloha!

The Song of the Breath is the Song of the Spirit--(Breath of Aloha, Episode #011)

The decision to be here, just to sit, breathe, and rest can be challenging. But, we make that decision on our own, without looking for validation or prompting from others. Because we know that in the quiet space of our heart is where we can find our true self. And when we arrive, we are embraced in the song of our own breath that conveys the lyric of the spirit, one breath of aloha at a time.

Breath of Aloha--When Times Get Tough (Episode #009)

As we journey into our practice, we may begin to ask why we even need to practice. We may start to question the whole purpose of it, especially if we don't notice any immediate results. Realizing that the purpose of the practice...is to practice. Just sitting lying down, or however you are at this moment...and breathing. This session incorporates counting with the breath. It is as simple, and complex as that. Don't give up...continue the journey, and stay on the path...one breath at a time with your companion in a Breath of Aloha, Ka Manu Iwa.
