INAUGURAL MOVEMENT THEME
"Kūlia e Uli" is the address to elemental energies that is optimal homeostasis or synchronization - these energies are Universal Intelligence. "Kanana ola" are the words that usually follow "Kūlia E Uli." Kanana Ola is the ask for life sustaining, life-balancing energy. THIS is the ultimate purpose of why this conference was dreamed...
The activities and events for this inaugural gathering have been lovingly composed to deepen our collective understanding of and resonance with our environment. Activities marked with a pink triangle are Special Events that can be added to the Core Program to enrich your World Oli Movement experience.

Core Program activities are the heart of this virtual conference. They offer a diverse range of engagement and learning to all attendees.
OLIOLI PŪ (Large Group Engagement)
Each day at noon we will begin with 20-30 minutes in Olioli Pū Large Group Engagement, where we will set our intentions for the day through mele and oli. Olioli Pū will also be the time for event organizers to provide any important announcements for the daily program.
The intention here is to facilitate a trans-cultural/interdisciplinary learning possibility...both between the Hāʻena co-keynotes (or intense breaths) and then rippling out to us. There is 1-co-keynote presentation each day, following the Olioli Pū. This is an opportunity for 2 experts from two different schools of knowledge to come together and co-create a compelling and stirring presentation.
KANI-KA-WĪ-KANI-KA-WĀ (Breakout Sessions)
Breakouts are daily 1-hour workshops immediately following the Hāʻena co-keynote. Each day, there will be 2 breakout sessions back to back where you will have an opportunity to learn from a wide selection of chant and/or bioacoustic experts. You will learn chants, dissect mele (poetic text), and explore topics such as sound therapy, bioacoustics, and sound vibrations.
We will be hosting a Sunrise Ceremony (December 19) as well as Ao Polohiwa a Kanaloa (Winter Solistice Ceremony - December 21). These are opportunities to attune with the transitions and shifts within our environment AND to put into practice the collective learning of our community.
