Pono: The Sacred Spirit of Hawaii

In May, I depart on a spiritual journey to the mystical Hawaiian Islands, seeking to capture their sacred spirit through the lens of my camera. Hawaii is a land of ancient kings, idyllic landscapes, hallowed grounds, and time-honored spirituality that still breathes its gentle wisdom today. The journey’s title, “Pono” is a treasured Hawaiian word meaning a state of harmony with oneself, with others, with nature, and the spirits around you. More than just a word, it’s an ancient Hawaiian philosophy of finding balance that inspires a sense of spiritual mystery even in today’s modern world.

Whether you feel connected to the aloha spirit, or stirred by the beauty of this land of rainbows and volcanoes, or simply love historic places, Hawaii draws you in.

To complete the adventure, you can view my photographic exhibit, “Pono: The Sacred Spirit of Hawaii” at the Sacred Pause Studio Open House June 26 - 28. For more information, call 214-828-4009 or get details on this website.

The Wisdom of Stillness calendar will be a unique work. A great gift idea!
