"Joel & Michelle Levey are consummate teachers because they live the teachings, humbly and compassionately laying out a roadmap that anyone motivated to lead a happier, more balanced life can follow. The simple exercises and questions they ask were like lightbulbs that helped me see my own life more clearly." Joan Borysenko, Ph.D., author of Minding the Body, Mending the Mind, and A WomanÕs Book of Life cofounder and former director of the Mind/Body Clinic, New England Deaconess Hospital, Harvard Medical School.
"A line of Tibetan prayer flags move, then wave to the west as trade winds blow from the east. ItÕs time to meditate, to watch, listen like the red cardinal who sings her presence. I am remembering breath, the wind that blows soul into the field where the Maile sails and Joel jumps in time to see a momma humpback and her baby eye to eye. The Maile sails and Marilyn swims in the deep blue sea, salty, and alive to the call of the moment. Joy! The Sanctuary. "We say a word twice or three times to emphasize the importance in the language of Hawaii," says Fred. The Sanctuary. Ponds reflect constant change. Aloha! Remember to be awake. Life sings here, is danced in the four directions, and played into the practice . I am blessed. Thank you Michelle and Joel for creating just the best ohana for learning how to better live in balance and love all that lives in all.
All my relations!" Janet Smith
"Never before have we so urgently needed the clear, compassionate teachings that are so lovingly described in Living in BalanceÉ Living in Balance invites us to return to the inner source of serenity and wisdom within." Larry Dossey, M.D., author of Prayer is Good Medicine and Healing Words
"What a magical and wonderful week. Thank you both for the wisdom, inspiration, compassion and patience. I feel very clear about my "endings" and confident about new beginnings. Today my last of this workshop I was walking along the ocean and a beautiful butterfly was fluttering around a tree. I paused to look, mindfully put my hand out, and beckoned it. It circled me a couple times, landed on the side of my hand and walked across my palm. I sent it love, it paused and slowly flew off. Quite remarkable for me." Bill Maynard
"You are both wonderful and inspiring people to be around and we feel blessed by your spirit and friendship. There is clearly a mutual blessing between you and the land here and the rest of us are thereby able to share the blessings. We hope and intend to continue as part of your community and to pass on your generosity and love to others as opportunities arise. Perhaps someday this will be the norm for the human species. In any case, it is worth striving for. We are grateful for your presence in the world and in our lives." Ken Murphy and Sarita Chawla
"Frog and I watch
Each other contemplating
Where does her frog pond end
And mine begin?
Thank you for a lovely week with you here in Hawaii. This place is a clear reflection of what I see in youÑlove, tenderness, and beauty built on a strong foundation. IÕve been nourished by the peace and bounty of the earth here and have enjoyed feeling a part of it. This week has held so many inspiring and serendipitous moments that I will cherish for a long time. All the living beings IÕve met here have been my teachers, and I will take them home with me in my heart." Helen Anderson
