The Beach House Lawn at D.T. Fleming Beach
Athletes, friends and family are welcome to participate in this very special Sunrise Hawaiian Cleansing and Rejuvenation Ceremony. Flaming tiki torches will greet you on the lawn, where you will be met by renowned cultural advisor, Clifford Naeole.
Clifford will lead you in a ceremony where you will enter the water (or just wade and bath in it) to release negative thoughts, actions, and any other concerns from your life. As the sun rises to the chanter’s voice, all is forgiven, and you will begin your life renewed and rejuvenated.
All present will be considered participants – and please be there on time, as the ceremony is timed to meet the sunrise and will start promptly at 5:15am.
JUST A SHORT AND SCENIC FERRY RIDE FROM MAUI
As you plan your travels to Hawaii, be sure to include a visit to Lana'i...Hawaii's Private Island. This Island is a small and pristine destination with only 3,000 people, beautiful white sand beaches, miles and miles of mountain biking and trekking trails, stunning golf courses and an array of adventure activities. From Maui, you can see Lana'i just across the channel and it is only a short and scenic ferry ride to this island which is a throwback to the Hawaii of yesteryear. For an overview take a look at www.visitlanai.net .
