Ohana Spiritual Awakening 2024!

We’re happy to announce Ohana Spiritual Awakening 2024! Come and join us on Sep 6th – 9th at Dekkas Rock in the Shasta-Trinity National Forest, CA for four days of community, learning, ceremony, and healing!

For Registration, visit: Ohana 2024!

This year our focus is “Journeying Within,” where we’ll also re-connect with our inner-selves through ceremony in order to heal, forgive, and release that which no longer serves us. Now is the time. 

Interwoven throughout the weekend will be elements of the four sacred directions of the Inca Medicine Wheel. From the Ayni Despacho (prayer bundles), fire ceremony, and also a heart-opening cacao ceremony. All healing is self-healing. Together, we’ll hold collective space to allow those healing frequencies to permeate and transmute. When we work on raising our individual vibrations we become beacons that radiate love and healing to those around us. It’s through this ripple effect that we help in manifesting a better world, for ourselves and for future generations. 

This year, we’re allotting more time between workshops for sharing gifts (donation only), exploring the land, hiking Hirz Bay Trail, swimming in Shasta Lake, and for renewing old bonds and making new friends. More detailed information about workshops and facilitators will be posted in the coming month.

For those that attended Ohana 2023, we’re unfortunately unable to use Camp Kimtu. With this year’s focus, Dekkas Rock will provide the perfect setting for ceremony and spiritual connection. The entire campground will be open to our private group only. All meals will be vegetarian. There will be access to potable water, vault toilets, outdoor showers (that we will set up), and limited electricity for charging small devices. Trailers up to 16’ in length are allowed on-site and overflow parking is available. Alternate lodging (Shasta Lake Motel), restaurants, groceries, and gas stations are located in Lakehead, CA, 15 miles away. 

Full weekend passes (all workshops, meals, and camping) are $222 per adult. Single-day passes, children’s passes, and extra nights of camping are also available. For groups with more than two children, or if you have questions, please email us at: OhanaSpiritualAwakening@gmail.com. We hope to see you there! Stay tuned for more info! If you haven’t signed up for our newsletter, please do so. We’ll only send event updates, never spam!

Galactic and Spiritual Informer’s Connection 2023

WOW! Just wow. Starla and I attended the GSIC conference in Orlando, Florida on October 20th – 22nd. It was a huge disclosure event full of high-vibing starseeds and contactees. With over 800 people from around the world, the energy and frequency at the conference was palpable. I first learned of GSIC through Dr. Michael Salla’s YouTube channel “Exopolitics Today,” which I followed after he interviewed SunBôw TrueBrother July 2022. SunBôw was a presenter at last year’s GSIC conference and if you haven’t read his book series entitled, “The Sasquatch Message to Humanity,” I highly recommend it. You can check it out HERE. (We’re not affiliated, it’s just a great series!).

SunBôw’s books explain the inter-dimensional and spiritual component of the Sasquatch and UFO “phenomena” that many researchers have yet to reconcile, as well as a great deal of fascinating information on the origins of humanity. The speakers at GSIC were aligned with those spiritual concepts and brought much of that same truth and knowledge to the forefront. There was none of that, “Are we alone in the universe?” stuff that’s been on endless replay. Humanity is waking up and it’s a great time to be alive!

The GSIC speakers included Dr. Michael Salla (Exopolitics Today), Alex Collier (Andromedan contactee), Elena Danaan (Emissary for the Galactic Federation of Worlds), Tony Rodrigues (Secret Space Program), Jean-Charles Moyen & Mélanie Charest (French Secret Space Program), Brad Olsen (Award-winning author), Dr. Christiane Northup, M.D. (Wellness Expert), Dan Willis (Military Whistleblower), Jerry Willis (Star Visitor), Corina Pataki (Bible Researcher), and Nikki Alan (Psychic Medium from the UK).

Speaking of Nikki Alan, holy smokes! Her mediumship event on Friday night was amazing. After relaying messages from the loved ones of two people in the audience, Nikki asked if someone was “connected to a Jim or James… a brother or dad, like a second name in the family?” Imagine my surprise when Starla slowly raised her hand. Starla’s father and brother, both named James, had both died a few years ago. The messages Nikki brought forward were so remarkably spot-on, some heart-warming, some heart-wrenching, but all sweetly tempered with humor and love.

Nikki affirmed for Starla that, despite the difficult circumstances of her life, her heart remains full of love and she has a clear connection to other realms. I’d say that describes my beautiful friend so very well. Needless to say, Starla experienced a profound and unexpected healing she called “life-changing.” She felt completely renewed and was beaming so brightly the entire weekend. Who would’ve guessed that with hundreds of people in attendance Starla’s family would be one of the few who connected with Nikki?

We recounted the numerous synchronicities that resulted in Starla accompanying me to this conference and agreed that the Universe never ceases to amaze. My take-away, don’t hesitate to make amends when needed; it’s powerful, liberating, and can literally be life- changing. Blessings Ohana.

Here is a recording of Nikki Alan relaying these messages to Starla.

Opening Sacred Space

We began our gathering on the evening of September 8th by reciting this Q’ero prayer. As requested, here it is, available as a PDF. Opinions vary, but I was taught that sacred space can remain open for about seven days. It makes for a beautiful weekly practice, if you choose to use it as such. It’s recited during pivotal events like birth, marriage, healing, or for peace and protection.

The Q’ero people are descendants of the Incas and reside high in the Andes of Peru. Their shamanic traditions are spiritually based in nature and invoke elemental powers to bring about healing and balance. The six individual paragraphs each represent one of the four cardinal directions, the below, and the above.

To recite the prayer: For each section, stand and face that cardinal direction with your rattle high in the air. You’ll be turning in a clockwise direction to face the next cardinal direction. If you’re with a group, they can raise one or both hands in that direction as well. For Mother Earth (Pachamama), bend down to touch the earth with your palm. For Father Sun (Intititi), stand up and raise both hands to the sky. Each paragraph ends with “A-ho!” The entire group should say it loudly and in unison as you give a singular shake of your rattle in that direction. If you don’t have a rattle, you can substitute with a bell, drum, or something similar.

Did you know Q’ero medicine involves seven energy centers in the body? This is alike the Hindu tradition of the chakras or the Jewish Kabbalah tradition of the Tree of Life that’s divided into seven levels and connected by ten nodes. It’s time to bring this seemingly “shared” ancient knowledge from different traditions to the forefront to restore much-needed balance back into the world!

Ohana 2023!

Aloha Ohana! We hope everyone had a wonderful time sharing a space filled with heart-felt love, laughter, and oneness. We surely did! It was beautiful to witness the many moments of connection & re-connection, open-hearted love and healing, random acts of kindness, learning and discovery, and hearing of the many memorable personal messages and experiences that came through.  

We envisioned Ohana Spiritual Awakening as providing a warm, welcoming experience; a time, place, and space to make a few steps along your spiritual journey feel safe, comfortable, and supported by like-minded people. Being able to reconnect with nature, the Sasquatch people, our star brothers and sisters, the Elementals, and all of the seen and unseen as a unified group helped to amplify our gratitude and intentions.

We each make a difference in this world, whether we realize it or not. By affecting positive change within ourselves, we affect positive change in others. We hope that “God-spark” in everyone not only got the chance to charge, but was set ablaze! 

It’s up to us to share that positivity with others throughout the day, whether it be the gift of a warm smile, demonstrating extra patience or kindness, creating laughter with a joke, or by providing much-needed encouragement during trying moments. It’s via this ripple effect that we contribute to the collective vibration of humanity and the earth’s grid; it’s how we experience oneness on a daily basis. 

We’ve uploaded a few photos and videos, but the full album (as well as those shared by others) is accessible via our Facebook group page, “Ohana Spiritual Awakening.” In the upcoming days, we’ll be making a series of posts providing more info about some of the workshops and activities that were held. That way, we don’t overwhelm everyone with long posts. We were a bit preoccupied running things in the background, so we didn’t take a lot of photos, but with the help of the community, there are some great shared photos on the Facebook page.

We’re sad it was over so soon, but that means next year’s gathering is right around the corner! Believe it or not, we’ve already started planning, and yes, we’ve listened to your comments closely. The next gathering will be the weekend after Labor Day, September 6th – 9th, 2024.

Thank you to everyone who traveled from far and wide to commune with open hearts and minds. We recognize and appreciate the large investment of time and energy that was integral in making this weekend something special for everyone. Building companionship, friendship, and kinship; this is what we’re all about. Mahalo and many blessings to you all! We hope to see you again next year!

Ohana Spiritual Awakening 2023 Invitation

The Scheduled Activities & Workshops

Event Information

Camp Kimtu is located one-mile from downtown Willow Creek, in an old-growth fir forest, nestled alongside the Trinity River. Attendees can set up campsites beyond the designated areas that overlook the river on a first-come, first-served basis. For added convenience, there’s an on-site shower and bathroom facility, access to water, and picnic tables for daily use. 

Workshops and gatherings will be held at either the indoor Redbud Theater or the outdoor stage. Meals are vegetarian and will be prepared in the full-service kitchen cookhouse. All meals are provided, to include dinner on the 8th, three meals on both the 9th & 10th, and breakfast on the 11th. For those omnivores out there, no worries, the food will be super tasty and filling! We’ll also end every evening with a gathering at the fire pit to share stories and create music together. Don’t forget to bring your musical instruments!

An added benefit to this private campsite is the permit-less fishing! Steelhead and salmon are the top catches from the Trinity River. Salmon are known to swim up river into a nearby hatchery. Once full, the gates are closed, leaving a hearty fishing hole for anyone interested. We’ve planned a few events at the river, so bring your water shoes (and swimsuits) to prevent walking directly on the rocks. 

There will be free time for swimming, exploring, and sharing our spiritual gifts. *Performing therapeutic modalities requires a license in California, so we ask that any sharing be done at your own risk, discretion, and by donation, barter, or trade only. Please self-coordinate once you arrive. We’ll also hold a raffle with some exciting items and host a trade event so you can bring home a few souvenirs. Unfortunately, the two cabins on-site are already reserved and RVs aren’t allowed due to limited room for U-turns. Space is also limited for campers and fifth-wheels, so please coordinate with us prior to your arrival. 

We’d love for you to join us at the Ohana Spiritual Awakening! Pack up your Hawaiian shirts or hula skirts and let’s experience this family gathering together in oneness and unity!

The Cosmic Oracle Show

Check out Ohana’s first interview! Star and Norma were honored to be interviewed by the Cosmic Oracle herself, Barbara Jean Lindsay. Starla discussed the inspiration behind the Ohana Spiritual Awakening and about her amazing connection with ETs, Sasquatch, and other beings. Learn more about the speakers coming to our gathering, to include Barbara and her workshop, “Healing Interspecies Communication.” Watch the whole interview here!

Aloha Ohana!

Mahalo (thank you) for visiting our new home on the inter-webs! Bear with us because we’re still “moving-in.” This is our first year, so between event planning and creating this website, it’s been a huge labor of love. As the days draw nearer, we’re growing more excited to be in everyone’s presence to share sacred space. We’ve put a lot of work into making this gathering educational & informative, full of opportunities for healing & connection, and high-spirited & fun to raise our collective vibration!

We often get caught-up in our routines and forget that experiencing joy is just as important, if not more important, than everything else we put our energy into. Joy is the sweetness of life and we want to capture that essence during this gathering. We’re glad you’re here with us, lots more to come!
