Nā Kaulana Mahina (the lunar cycle) was a normal way of understanding timing in traditional Hawai‘i. Along with Ka Lā (the sun) and Na Hōkū (celestial bodies) we are constantly exposed to three time markers that work together to show us an entire blue-print for how life is timed. The Nā Kaulana Mahina workshop is a focused approached to understanding how this works with the solar and celestial cycle. While we commonly think of the lunar cycle as it influences mahia‘ai (farming) and lawai‘a (fishing), mahina plays a part in all aspects of our lives. We explore how to find a comfortable fit for Nā Kaulana Mahina timing and our daily lives.
