I’m writing you during the Scorpio full moon to wish all of you a happy Spring and let you know that I have launched upon a great adventure.
DALAI LAMA IN HONOLULU
His Holiness the Dalai Lama is presented with a conch shell, and important part of Hawaiian culture, at the end of his talk at the University of Hawaii on April 14, 2012.

Beginning my journey in Honolulu in Mid April where I witnessed the Dalai Lama giving a talk, Advancing Peace Through the Power of Aloha, was a good plan. I was moved to tears many times while he was talking. He made me laugh a lot and helped me awaken to a number of philosophical truths. A huge blessing for which I am grateful. Such an amazing man, rich with wisdom and compassion and humor. Full story here.
MY UPCOMING EUROPEAN CRUISE
My dear acupuncturist friend, Ginger Li Akuna, invited me to share her room on a month long cruise to the Baltic leaving Florida on May 13th.
As a freshman in college, Ginger walked into my office in 1971, asking me for advice when I was serving as Academic Adviser at Chico State University. We have been good friends ever since.
On this journey, I’m hoping to meet up with some of my dear European friends in Russia, Germany, Belgium, Netherlands, and England--teaching advanced Lomilomi to groups whenever possible. I hope to have more time for sharing the blessing of this sacred Hawaiian rejuvenation treatment as time goes on.
For an itinerary of my 31 day journey:
I recently spent a week in San Diego County where Orenda flew me in for a Gold School convention. Such a wonderful gathering of high-minded individuals who are using and sharing the Orenda cutting edge nutritional supplements. My Gold School roommate, Kathy Reinagel, used crutches for 30 years before she discovered the healing miracle of Orenda. After 4 months on the program, she no longer required crutches.
My other roommate, Debbie Freeze, who was wheelchair-bound, got me to photograph her tearing up her last two cigarettes. She got off of her 8 medications, is now walking without pain, had 60% of her vision return—all since she began taking Orenda supplements in January of this year.
Kathy and Debbie are happy campers!
When I visited my new Orenda friend, Susanne, in Laguna Nigel, her mother called saying she was “done” and felt determined to end her life by stopping her medications as well as all food and drink. Susanne and I heard this request loud and clear. We took it seriously by helping her fill out her 5 Wishes. a tool that helps you express how you want to be treated if you are seriously ill and unable to speak for yourself. Watch the video below by Susan Lawton to learn more.

At the same time, Suzanne supplied her lovely mother with Orenda Immune, O-tropin and Balance sprays, chocolate and juice, (Choki and Oki) to see if using it might change her mind. More than a week later, Charlotte has a different attitude and hasn’t mentioned being in a hurry to die.

I LOVE ORENDA!
Feel free to call me or visit my web site if you are interested in trying it.
In mid July in Colorado I will meet back up with my wonderful Orenda ohana (family) when I return from Europe.
My dear friend/mentor, Dr. Shanhang Lu, will be speaking at the Santa Monica library on Sunday, May 27, 3 to 4pm, for those of you in Southern California who care to learn about the anti-aging breakthroughs (especially O-tropin and Immune) that help us cope with stress and toxins. See Dr. Lu’s 3 minute you tube http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j3Kz-a9iXy8
MYUMI ODA EXHIBIT
My dear friend/neighbor, Mayumi Oda, visited her homeland last year on the day of the disaster in Fukashima. Through this grievous period, Mayumi created the theme of her upcoming Honolulu exhibition – "A Prayer for the New Birth of Japan". She said her challenge was “to properly depict this catastrophic time with hope and love through traditional Yamato (Japanese) style paintings.”
It is Mayumi’s wish that we all return to a sustainable culture without nuclear power. She “prayed with each stroke” she put on canvas that “the world would learn to live in peace and harmony with mother nature, as we are the children of the mighty sun goddess (Amaterasu).”
URGE PRESIDENT OBAMA TO ACT TO PREVENT
A SECOND FUKUSHIMA DISASTER
May 10, 2012
The situation at the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear site remains perilous. The area has been hit with hundreds of earthquakes since the March 11 Great Earthquake and Tsunami that led to the destruction of four reactors and caused release of massive amounts of radiation. The cooling system for all four damaged reactors is jerry-rigged, shaky, and prone to leaks. read more.....
This Is the movie made by one of the heirs to the Gamble portion of Proctor & Gamble. It is called “Thrive”. I bought the movie and had a showing for the community but now you can see it free on youtube and it is being distributed in five languages since it is so popular. I hope you enjoy it.

MORE TO COME SOON
As always, I have Phoenix to thank for helping create this Dragonflyer. And as always, he is getting a new urge to travel—maybe Europe again? A big Mahalo and blessings.
A recent guest, who felt guided to stay at the Dragonfly and teach a sacred American Indian water purification ceremony, shared an ancient song that pre-dates instruments. Since I will be surrounded by water for a month, I will be doing this powerful blessing everywhere I go.
On my journey, I plan to meditate, write and take photos. Will keep you all posted!
Sending warm Aloha!
