Professional Development

 Professional development workshops for schools & organizations focusing on the moon and how it relates to all aspects of our environment

Mahina Workshops are based on ʻike kūpuna (ancestral knowledge) and follow the path of Aloha ʻĀina as the mahina affects all things on the land.  Through these Mahina Workshops participants will learn the fundamentals of the mahina from a Hawaiian perspective, expand Hawaiian vocabulary about concepts related to the mahina and build pilina (relationships) with the lunar cycles that affect the world around them.
