    17. WHEN LIFE FEELS RIGHT. How I embody the Hawaiian concept of PONO

    17. WHEN LIFE FEELS RIGHT. How I embody the Hawaiian concept of PONO

    My favorite Hawaiian word is PONO. On the surface level, you can translate it as goodness, uprightness, morality or excellence. But I like to dive deeper into even more profound meaning of pono. When something is pono, it is as it should be, naturally, gracefully. In perfect order. At ease. Reflecting the true nature of things. 

    In this episode I use the word pono as an inspiration and a doorway to speak about living life from deep embodiment of truth, righteousness and ease. 

    I hope you will enjoy listening to it!



    With love, 

    Magdalena

    13.⁠ MORE THAN JUST A MASSAGE: Hawaiian lomi lomi from the perspective of receivers and practitioners

    13.⁠ MORE THAN JUST A MASSAGE: Hawaiian lomi lomi from the perspective of receivers and practitioners

    I often (like, really, really often) hear from my Clients that lomi lomi is more than just a massage. I get it, because it is also much more than just a massage to me. So much so, that I actually feel the massage part of lomi lomi is almost... accidental ;) 

    This episode is co-created with my Clients, subscribers of Aloha Newsletter and fellow lomi practitioners. I asked them: what makes lomi more than just a massage for you? What is this "more"? I am sharing their answers and my personal stories and insights around lomi. 

    Thank you for you and enjoy this episode!

    BONUS –⁠ Can lomi lomi massage OPEN YOUR HEART? (and what does it even mean)

    BONUS –⁠ Can lomi lomi massage OPEN YOUR HEART? (and what does it even mean)

    Please check notes to this episode!

    ____

    In today's episode I explain:


    what does it mean to live with open heart
    how can massage support this process on physical, emotional, mental and spiritual level
    what is one easy thing that you can do any time to feel more connected to your heart, to yourself and the world



    And in the intro to the episode I also explain that a massage is not always a solution to the problem. Sometimes what is needed is psychiatric consultation, psychotherapy, counselling, mediation, physical consultation, rehabilitation... but even in such cases, I believe with all my heart that a caring, respectful touch like lomi can be of great support.



    This episode was originally recorded as a Facebook livestream in June 2020. Do you prefer to watch instead of listen? You can do it here:

    PS. I know that I made a mistake at the beginning when I said that massage is "a recipe for the problem" while I meant that it is "the solution for the problem". I am sorry for my not-always-so-good English!
