group doing Bagua exercises

八卦內功簡介

Energy Bagua is a special method of meditation developed by Master JinBodhi for the maintenance of good health.  It balances YIN and YANG energy, while facilitating interaction with Universal energy, regenerating vitality and improving health.  Energy Bagua is based on two main components: movements of the palms and walking in circles.  It combines strength and softness, the physical and the mental.  While practicing Energy Bagua, students can grasp the balance of YIN and YANG, return to Nature, and connect with the universal energy to quickly replenish vital energy, stimulate the immune system, and improve health conditions.

OPEN SESSION EVERY SATURDAY (the library is open) 11:00 am – 12:30 Noon

Since 2010, Uncle Wayne and the Howling Dog Band, Uncle Wayne, Mr. Girish & Dr. Pfahl, have been barnstorming Hawaii’s libraries, schools and festivals creating a musical ruckus with every show. Their original songs, a unique blend of island flavored bluegrass, folk and blues make children and their grownups want to dance and sing along. Playing 80+ shows a year, it’s no wonder Hana Hou magazine dubbed them “the hardest-working band in keiki showbiz.”
