Our Winter Solstice ritual will be focused on Hawaiian Snow Goddess Poli'ahu, Peace, Sisterhood, Mauna Kea and for everlasting blessed connections. I look forward to the pilgrimages you make to the Temple and all the Aloha you share in community. Please remember to bring your candle decorated for Peace for the exchange! Kealoha has helped many of us by sharing her wisdom/mana'o at our candle decorating and there are some beautiful candles to be gifted. Join in the fun and let your creative flare shine. Please only bring candles in glass/no tapers please!

Poli’ahu, whose name means “cloaked bosom,” or “temple bosom,” is a legendary daughter of Wakea who dwells at the summit of Mauna Kea.

It is Poli'ahu who spreads Her beautiful white kapa across the summit of Mauna Kea in the Winter, and adorns the mountain with Her pink and gold cloak in the summer.

She is the Goddess of Mauna o Wakea (today often called Mauna Kea), snow, ice, and cold. The summit of Mauna Loa also is Hers. We will also send prayers for peace and justice to the
Save Mauna Kea movement and get updates! Please bring a tithe of any amount wrapped in gold, green, silver or red cord or ribbon for the organization Kahea. For those of you who know where to get Hawaiian food please bring some for the Feast! And please dress up! This is a High Holyday so strut your finest!

If you are interested in participating in a ritual or celebration, please help out by doing the following:

Please bring a snack to share (if possible, food of the culture we are celebrating), washable eating utensils (bowl, cup, plate, utensils, etc. In honor of Mother Earth, we do not provide disposable items), a candle (for safety reasons, we highly recommend a candle in a glass container, often called a novena), and pillow or chair to sit on to all rituals. For more information about our rituals please visit our FAQ page.

Please see our current series schedule and check the web page for the specific ritual to see what items to bring and how to prepare yourself. Please take the time to read this, especially if you are a newcomer. New information is added from time to time so even if you feel you have already seen this, it is important to check back in every now and then.
