A Message from Laurel (lahela) White


Laurel White


Aloha and E Komo Mai (Welcome). . . . . . . I believe I have found the elixir of life and want to share it with you, here in Hawai'i, and now in more locations in the world, as we need healing and rejuvenating sanctuaries amidst all the turmoil and pain and dis-ease. Well, these are my thoughts and my hopes and is my current mission. I recently landed in the mountains of San Diego, CA, just in time for Springing into Summer !

I have traveled and studied and taught extensively throughout the inner and outer world of LIFE, with many Masters and Teachers, continually putting into practice in my own life, what I learn. Creating enterprises in order to share the BLISS, From Malibu Windsurfing to Bikram Yoga Maui to Light Journey Retreats to EcoVan and Ha'iku Hot Yoga Maui.These ventures and pursuits have brought me better health, better thoughts, better lifestyle and better relationships to myself and to SPIRIT, manifesting my dreams.

Because I believe we are meant to come from LOVE and JOY and PEACE in every moment I am continually sourcing what can make that true with cutting-edge Sustainable Solutions for Healing our bodies and the Earth.

One incarnation of Creativity that I am passionate about is; Outdoor Education for our YOUTH - - Hawaiian (or any) Style ! Instilling confidence and new skills through shared projects in the garden, building alternative energy conduits, sporting activities and community service for a better tomorrow, by and for the Stewards of the Future - our Children. (see http://www.YOUTHINMOTION.ORG on Molokai). I worked with a Hawaiian mother who home-schooled her 3 children (for the early years) and a ha'ole mother who runs MOLOKAI OUTDOORS and is also raising 3 hapa children. Between both families we were raising the bar for alternative education and embarking upon a new project that can be inspiring to other young people and educating about what can be done. The youth of Moloka'i are very creative and entrepreneurial and are already making videos of their land and their voices.

My friends say that I have Abundant Energy and Happiness (when I remember to stay out of my own way) and that I truly embody a healthy and loving lifestyle they'd like to have more of. I offer this PATH to you, to inSpire and to assist in your 'Awakening to your own JOY' through our Training Programs, Retreats and Community Building Projects.

I moved to MAUI in 1999, to connect with my Hawaiian roots and Mother Nature.  After 10 years, I found my Hawaiian Ohana, 'family' and began collaboration on our new project called Kahua Ola Foundation. The focus is on Sustainable Community based on how the Hawaiians lived in 'precontact' times (with a bit of technology thrown in). We are building CLEAN ENERGY infrastructures for whole families using windmill, solar, and hydrogen technology. A big part of daily life is growing food and being aware of how we interact with the 'Aina (Mother Earth), taught to us by the best land stewards on Earth, the Hawaiians. Hence, my cleansing programs, as we are toxic and so is SHE.


I have condensed all that I've studied, experienced, and sourced into weekly and daily programs for maximum health - fast! Cuz I like to spend as much time outdoors, loving and enjoying I've created for myself what gets me there fast, and I want to share that with you! No one leaves our program without clearing out the digestive system with our fresh juice program with a liver flush or a Raw meal plan. Everyone loses weight and gains energy and clarity as a result.

The most profound CLEANSE I ever found that not only alkalizes your body but reduces or eliminates chronic problems, from allergies to diabetes is the ancient Hawaiian practice of Seawater Cleansing. I was so greatFULL to be able to offer this for the years it was available that was Now, the Big Island is the only place in the world where you can actually purchase this seawater. It is retrieved from a mile down in the ocean, off the Kona coast. You see the 'LIGHT' after you've cleaned out your whole small intestine of everything you've ever eaten. Talk about being REnewed !! It takes on new meaning.

I also assist you in the most important part which is what you put into your body (YOU are what YOU EAT) and your mind (YOUR thoughts manifest YOUR reality) after your time with us and and we assist YOU in consciously creating a new lifestyle that manifests more of your Desires for YOUR LIFE. Ask me HOW I got here; living my wildest and biggest dreams.

We use meditation, affirmations and "sound" to vibrate at a higher frequency allowing us to shatter our boundaries and insecurities.

We open the door to experience joy and freedom which is vital – and allows inner and outer nature to blend. The Nature outside provides much while we offer techniques to wake up our true Nature inside ourselves, arriving at the Bliss within.

As Deepak Chopra says, "we are victims of 'passive awareness' vs. 'active awareness'.

In your days or week or two with us we become active participants in awakening to LOVE and PEACE and JOY. These you can take home with you and practice them anywhere. Don't trust my words - go to our TESTIMONIALS and read the words by our guests.

** Reached the age of 50 and never felt better !
Well, and now, about to be 60 and now I'm living off the interest of what I've been putting into my 'physical and emotional bank' for decades.

Here's a very clear way to compose a prayer, taking care to choose your WORDS carefully: Choose to ask for a "GIFT"!
from Shoosh Ming Wa BLUE CORN GODDESS

"Please Grant me the GIFT of BEing healthy, of BEing Peace and BEing in the state of Loving Self! Being strong to change my old habits that no longer serve me! I AM choosing to respect my body with good healthy food. I AM ready to evolve to a more Loving, Peaceful and True World! I AM ready for this GIFT, NOW! With gratitude and Love in my heart!

Remember that you are creating a NEW World, RIGHT NOW! This is a time for you to awaken and take responsibility for WHO YOU TRULY ARE!
Step into your Higher Self, YOUR God Self and BE! BE conscious of that truth! It is most important for YOU to acknowledge that so you can move forward. Hold the thought and create a loose structure for the energy to gather around. See this structure as a general idea that will magnetize like pure energy. Don't worry about specifics, just hold the thought and let it evolve. This will enact your sacred contract and very quickly you will find that you are on this planet for something special....Your Purpose! "

There you have it! KNOW and it will flow!! NOW!
With LOVE n Gratitude! AHO!
