Stars Align for A Night in Old Hawai'i

Linda with Ann Lambert Vannov- Manager of Bank of Books

The new Bank of Books overlooking  the shining Pacific in Malibu supports local authors. The evening opened with Anna Liza McKeon performing the ancient Kahiko hula. She chanted and drummed for her son who is keeping the hula tradition alive.  This was followed by my talk about how to pull more mana, or spiritual power, into your life. Next, I took my guests on a visual journey to sacred sites scattered though out the Islands. It was a beautiful evening and a good time for all!
