Harmony Health & Wellness – Upcoming Programs
Monday, April 27, 2015  – 3:30 pm, Davies Hall. On April 27th you will not want to miss a late afternoon, Himene and Mele of Queen Liliuokalani.  Join us for community singing with poi supper with hardy Hawaiian stew to follow.  Studies have shown that singing and music helps us to transcend the problems of the world, reduces stress and anxieties, and promotes wellness.
Monday, May 11, 2015 – 4:00 pm, Davies Hall. “Restorative justice” is the concept that trauma lies deep within the psyche of every person.  This trauma prevents us from being healthy and well.  Therapeutic designs are intended to release the trauma and create open pathways for healing and restoration.  Come and learn about how restorative justice is helping the pa’ahao at the Halawa Correctional Facility. There will be a presentation on restorative justice related to Makahiki programs which are ongoing at the Halawa Correctional Facility.

Godly Play – The Children’s Gathering on the Square

Sundays, 9:00 – 10:00 am

The Loft at St. Peter’s Church   

The program takes place in The Loft at the back of St. Peter’s Church, from 9:00 to 10:00 am on Sunday mornings.  It is appropriate for children who are curious about the bible stories that they hear in church, enrolled in pre-school through the 4th grade of school.  Older children are welcome to assist as “helpers” or participate in “The ROCK” (Relationships, Outreach, Christ & Kids) program located in the Sun/Son room at St. Peter’s.

April 26.  Symbols of the Holy Eucharist.  This lesson supports a child’s understanding and appreciation of the items they see used in the Eucharist.  Each  Eucharistitem will be introduced, named, and examined before placing it in the context of the worship service.  The goal of this lesson is to convey that these things are set apart from ordinary use for special use in the Holy Eucharist.  To show this, we give almost everything another name.  For example, a cup is no longer a cup.  It becomes a chalice.  You may do this at home, the pacifier is no longer a pacifier but now a beloved “binky.”  Many parents will appreciate the sacred nature of this object, and almost every family has it’s own name for it.  Certainly a pacifier is not exactly holy but it can hold  mysterious power over a household.

May 3.  The Story of the Life of St. Julian of Norwich.  St. Julian was born in 1342 and is associated with Norwich, England.  On May 8, 1373, when she was thirty, she received a series of revelations and then became an anchorite, living alone in a cell attached to St. Julian’s Church in Norwich.  She almost certainly took the name by which we know her from that church.  Her book, Showings, was the first book to be written by a woman in English.
