The Healing Dynamics of Hawaiian Chanting


During the workshop, Kumu Kaipo will share how Hawaiian Chanting connects a person to the natural environments around them and creates a healing environment for all who take part. Participants will be introduced to one of Kumu Kaipo’s healing chants that she created during one of her visits at a sacred temple (Heiau) in Hawai’i. Join Kumu Kaipo in the San Antonio Botanical Gardens as she shares the essence of Hawaiian Chanting.  Each workshop can be enjoyed independently and does not require attending prior classes; new information is provided from Kumu each month.
