Temple Style Lomi ~ Hawaiian Massage Training
with Patti Miller
September 2-9, 2022
Milldale Farm Center for Wellness, Fairlee, VT
Lomilomi is an ancient form of bodywork passed through the generations by the Kahunas of Hawaii. Temple-Style Lomi is a modern lineage brought to the world by Kahu Abraham Kawai'i. In this training you will learn a full-body routine that can be the foundation for a new massage practice or an amazing addition to your current menu.
This lineage primarily uses forearm and elbow strokes that flow across the body in a rhythmic, wave-like motion, inducing a trance-like state of deep relaxation. It also incorporates a variety of manual stretches, deep twists, and joint rotations which creates expansion in the body and improves flexibility and range-of-motion.
You will learn to generate mana (energy) through HA Breathwork and a dance step called the Kale'leau, which allows you to glide around the massage table. Breathing deeply through the heart center, this energy is shared with the receiver through the bodywork.
This is a more advanced training. However, there are no prerequisites and anyone who feels called to come is welcome!
Training begins with a Ho'oponopono Ceremony, a Hawaiian tradition for clearing blockages from our life and creating space in us to receive the transmission of Lomi Lomi. On the final day, you will receive a certificate honoring you for becoming a carrier of this powerful work.
Tuition includes on-site accommodation and 3 Home-cooked meals a day. 7 rustic cabins may also be reserved by individuals or couples for an additional fee. In your free time, enjoy optional daily yoga classes and free time for hiking or swimming at Lake Fairlee.
