Lomi Aku, Lomi Mai!

Kamakanuiʻahaʻilono Jingao is a Hawaiian Healing Practitioner with a background in Lomilomi, Lā’au Lapa’au and Ho’oponopono. Kamaka has studied with the late Kumu Alva Andrews, Makaʻala Yates, Keola Chan, Kaliko Chang, Alapai Kahuena, John Brink and Dennis Kauahi. He will share his stories of lomilomi and incorporate a hands on seated lomi experience, which incorporates the spiritual, mental and physical aspects of life.

Voyage of Navigating Through Self-Identity

Kamaka is joined by Jocelyn “Joy” Ancheta, a cultural practitioner, committed to serving her community as a vessel for healing and voyaging traditions as her ancestors did. Joy specializes in body, energy, prayer and medium work. In addition, Joy is also a lomi lomi practitioner and student of the late lomi lomi master and Hawaiian elder, Kumu Alva Andrews. Her journey as a healer eventually led her to the traditions of voyaging and in 2012, she represented the Philippines in the Pacific Voyagers’ Te Mana O Te Moana voyage. Joy is coordinator of traditional Hawaiian voyaging canoe, Hawai`iloa and is a director for the canoe’s non profit organization, Friends of Hokule`a and Hawai`iloa. Please join us for a talk story session with Joy as she shares her Voyage of Navigating Through Self-Identity and finding balance with perpetuating these traditions in modern times.
