Beach Walk 692 – Master Cleanse, Master Change

Have you heard of the Master Cleanse, sometimes called the Lemon Cleanse?

I did a while back for 10 days, and shared a few insights about it in today’s episode. For me, it was not about the specifics of the program as much as it was about taking a dramatic step to wrestle free from some hard to change habits I no longer wanted.

Hawaiian Word:
Hoʻopau: to stop, cease

Beach Walk 642R – Memorial Day in the Pacific

We originally filmed this episode for Memorial Day in 2006. But it clearly stands out as a timeless message, and represents the true magic of Beach Walks. It is all completely unscripted, no shot list, we just showed up and worked as fast as we could before the sun set. Sometimes, you know the universe is on your side.

This is one of our favorite and most powerful episodes, though you won’t be finding us at the beach. Today’s show was filmed at the Hawaii Memorial Cemetery of the Pacific. 50,000 leis were donated, and over 100 young Boy Scouts (thanks for the correction Mark) placed a lei and a flag on each gravestone. I was quite stirred to be in the presence of death while smelling the sweet scent of plumeria lei. Though most of those buried here are from modern wars, this “punchbowl” of an ancient volcano was the site of Hawaiian aliÊ»i burials and human sacrifice of those who violated the kapu or taboos.

Dedicated to my dad and my friend Eric, who’s done two tours in Iraq.

Hawaiian word:
PÅ«owaina: hill of sacrifice
Kaua: war
Kapu: taboo
Maluhia: peace

Beach Walk 628R – May Day is Lei Day

I present to you a Beach Walks classic, featured hula dancers and leis at Kapiʻolani Park. Music, dancing, and plenty of Aloha for you.

Maybe this year we will be able to create the world’s largest lei? Mahalo to Neenz for telling me about this! Follow her link to read more about leis and hula. And visit SmallBiz Survival to join Becky McCray and BarbaraKB‘s in using May Day as Talk to Your Neighbor Day.

Update: I fixed BarbaraKB’s spelling.
