Aloha Kids Stories
Children of the Earth - Honouring the Waters
"Praise and gratitude to the sacred waters of the world, to the oceans, the mother of life, the womb of the plant life that freshens our air with oxygen, the brew that is stirred by sunlight and the moon's gravity into the great currents and tides that move across the earth, circulating the means of life, bringing warmth to the frozen Arctic and cool, fresh winds to the tropics. We give thanks for the blessed clouds and the rain that brings the gift of life to the land, that eases the thirst of roots, that grows the trees and sustains life even in the dry desert. We give thanks for the springs that bring life-giving water up from the ground, for the small streams and creeks, for the mighty rivers. We praise the beauty of water, the sparkle of the sunlight on a blue lake, the shimmer of moonlight on the ocean's waves, the white spray of the waterfall. We take delight in the sweet singing of the dancing stream and the roar of the river in the flood.
We ask help to know within ourselves all the powers of water: to wear down and to build up, to ebb and to flow, to nurture and to destroy, to merge and to separate. We know that water has great powers of healing and cleansing, and we also know that water is vulnerable to contamination and pollution. We ask help in our work as healers, in our efforts to ensure that the waters of the world run clean and run free, that all the earth's children have the water they need to sustain abundance of life. Blessed be the water."

Children of the Earth - The Art of Listening
“When listening to another person, don’t just listen with your mind, listen with your whole body. Feel the energy field of your inner body as you listen. That takes attention away from thinking and creates a still space that enables you to truly listen without the the mind interfering. You are giving the other person space - space to be. It is the most precious gift you can give. Most people don’t know how to listen because the major part of their attention is taken up by thinking. They pay more attention to that than to what the other person is saying, and none at all to what really matters: the Being of the other person underneath the words and the mind. Of course, you cannot feel someone else’s Being except through your own. That is the beginning of the realization of oneness, which is love. At the deepest level of Being, you are one with all that is.”
- Eckhart Tolle, The Power of Now
Mindful Movement and Creative Expression 
- Celebrating the Breath of Life -
"Enter these turning points, where the rhythms of life transform into each other.

Breath flows in, filling, filling, in this moment, drink eternity.

Breath flows out, emptying, emptying, offering itself to infinity.

Cherishing these moments, mind dissolves into heart, heart dissolves into space, body becomes a vibrating field, pulsating between fullness and emptiness."

Aloha Art - The Wishing Garden Project

“At the root, making art
is about connection.
Connection with yourself,
connection with others,
connection with the earth,
connection with the cosmos,
connection with flow state,
connection with life force,
and connection with
what it feels like to be
fully alive and free
in your own skin, and heart.
This is how
we are meant to feel
and how we thrive.
Keep creating in the face of everything.
Just keep creating.”
