Lomi HA Breathwork Training ~ with Harry Uhane Jim

October 7-10, 2021

Milldale Farm Center for Wellness, Fairlee, VT

Join us for a 4 day intensive training with Kahuna, teacher, and author Harry Uhane Jim. We are honored to host Uncle Harry for the 3rd time at Milldale Farm. Every opportunity to work with him has been an incredible gift for us, and we hope to share this experience with you! This class will focus on Lomi HA ~ Ancient Hawaiian Breathwork for trauma recovery and connecting to our higher selves. To learn is to experience.

Harry's course description:

Enter into the realm of Lomilomi, the traditional Hawaiian Approach to bodywork. Lomilomi holds the premise that body, mind and spirit (trinity) participate in its evolution - healing.


The work creates a temple…a sacred space... a connecting space... A safe space place for the body’s consciousness (the emotional body).


Access for support and communication to the emotional body is in the HA - the breath. 

The opportunity for healing is the convergence of time, space, and will. It is incidental, coincidental, and serendipitous.


Lomilomi grants portal to this Process. We are empowered by and centered on authenticity, creating the momentum of ease and grace to navigate healing.



LOMI HA ( breath) - combining the skills of bone washing and breath coaching we are equipped to heal towards freedom from constriction.

BONE WASHING - cleaning the skin of the bone (periosteum),  causing the release of memory and corresponding physical and emotional pain.

PO’O (head) -- clearing binds on the cranial bones to accommodate movement of skull in rhythm with the breath.

CREATION OF SPACE - causing space in the body using gravity and breath.

MANIFESTING - traditional healing technique to active prayer using “prepare, perceive and procreate.”

LAULIMA-   We will learn by doing “laying of hands” an ancient Hawaiian healing practice in which everybody is enough, everyone participates. We gather in a cluster of like-minded healers holding the common intention for one person’s well being.   





And before me thousands of years of repeating healings.


Yes to learn how is To experience .  Join us for a lifestyle expansion through joyous skills held dear to the Hawaiians of old. 


Aloha, Harry

Intro to Lomilomi ~ with Benj

October 25-29, 2021

The Heron Educational Center for the Human Spirit, Westport, MA

Lomi Lomi is the traditional massage from the Hawaiian Islands. It has been passed down through generations since ancient times by the Kahunas, the mystics, healers, and master energy workers of Hawaii. Each island had its own unique lineages of Lomi, but each shared the belief that humans are more than the physical body. Their work encompassed the entire spectrum of a person…physical, psychological, and spiritual. It is highly effective at integrating the different areas of the body, clearing blockages and getting energy moving, and bringing people back into a sense of alignment.

In modern times, Lomi has become very popular around the world. It movements are inspired by the ocean, and much like sitting in the waves, receiving Lomi can be relaxing yet energizing, gentle yet deep, soothing yet powerful. It can bring people into deep trances, or help them feel more grounded. There is a heavy focus on the breath as a tool to move energy…from both the giver and receiver.

In this 5-day workshop, we will learn a full-body routine that incorporates techniques from 3 different lineages from Kauai, Maui, and the Big Island. It will be very hands-on; you will be giving and receiving sessions every day.

Material covered will include:

~Cascading wave-like strokes from the heart-centered, meditative tradition of Sherman Dudoit and the Kahunas of Maui

~Rhythmic forearm strokes, deep stretches, twists, and hip openers from the lineage of Kahu Abraham Kawai’i.

~Creating space in-between the vertebrae and joints through the application of gravity and leverage with the breath from modern-day Kahuna Harry Uhane Jim

This class is open to people of all experience levels…from total beginners to long-time practitioners. The routine you will learn is a solid foundation for a new practice or a wonderful addition to an existing practice.


Daily Schedule:

Arrive at 8:30am to settle in
Morning Class: 9am-12:30pm
Lunch Break: 12:30pm-2pm
Afternoon Class: 2pm-6pm


I will do my best to stay on schedule, but I ask that you keep your evenings flexible in case things come up that cause us to run a little late. You may also find that things come up for you with this work, and it is nice to have spaciousness to let it settle and integrate if possible.


If you would like to book a private session to experience the work before the class, time will be made available to do so.

If you have any questions, you can contact us, at vermontholisticbodywork@gmail.com or 802.793.5764.

Tuition: $500

Tuition including Plant-Based Lunch: $620
