Lessons from Old Hawai’i
Linda Ballou, author of Wai-nani, A Voice from Old Hawai’i—fabled history couched in magical realism, shares lessons she learned from the People of Old Hawai’i. Her talk opens with an overview of the genesis of the Aloha Spirit-or Lokahi—a time
when Hawaiians lived in peace and harmony. Then Linda moves onto the triage of traditional Hawaiian healing methods enjoying resurgence today.
Following her talk she takes you on a visual journey to sacred sites scattered through-
out the Islands with gorgeous images provided by the Hawaiian Tourist Authority
Everything you ever wanted to know about sacred sites in Hawai’i, but didn’t know to ask.
Linda has created a Powerful Slide Presentation spotlighting easily accessed ancient sites in the Hawaiian Islands. Splendid images provided by the Hawaiian Tourist Authority are supplemented by her informative talk. In her research for Wai-nani, A Voice from Old Hawai’i, fabled history couched in magical realism, she immersed herself in the poetry and pageantry of the Hawaiian people and their heroic past. This program along with reading Wai-nani, a new voice from old Hawai’i, will greatly enhance your visit to the Islands.
She has also created a Power Point Presentation in which she shares the settings of the stories in her eclectic mix of travel essays Lost Angel Walkabout- One Traveler’s Tales. Striking images of Alaska, Hawaii, the Wild West of North America, New England, New Zealand and Costa Rica are all part of Linda’s Walkabout. Like Linda’s stories this presentation is thought provoking, informative and entertaining armchair travel.
