LGBTQ+ SATSANG: SWIMMING IN THE SPIRIT OF ALOHA WITH LEI’OHU AND MAYDEEN  ‘IAO

Ram Dass spent the last years of his life on Hawai’i, as he described it “one step from India.” Join us for a look at his relationship to the principle of Aloha, and hear from his dear friends Lei’ohu and Maydeen ‘Iao, who will share their love, blessings, and give us the essence of Aloha, love, and knowledge of Hawai‘i that can help us connect with ourselves and with Spirit. Aloha is the Hawai’ian word for love, affection, peace, compassion and mercy, that has a deeper cultural and spiritual significance to native Hawaiians beyond just a greeting, for whom the term is used to define a force that holds together existence.


Lei’ohu said: “Maui was Ram Dass’ final physical stop – being held in the arms of Maui. It feels like he was here to bask in Aloha, to feel the unrestricted deep honoring and resonance of a loving way, like the ocean waves, or the beautiful soft breezes from the oceans, or Makani (fierce winds). Being with him was a gift that blessed us constantly. His presence and the fertilizing essence of the spirit of Aloha blended well and held him in the womb of Maui.” Join us for a special evening!


For those who identify as LGBTQ+
