Zen Life & Meditation Center offers mindful Dance practice through the Hula. Hula is described as everything we see, hear, feel, taste and touch. Essentially hula, like Zen, is Life. It is the dance form of the Hawaiian people.
The practice of hula includes mindful awareness of body, arms, hands and feet placement as you tell stories of the beauty of Hawaii. Values of openness of heart, empathy of nature, and clarity or wisdom that comes when body, mind and heart are one.
