Client Testimonials:

Private and Group Retreat Client

“I have had the opportunity to work with Pono in both a group “Connections” retreat and in a private solo retreat.

I have done all kinds of self-exploration/healing workshops during my adult life; everything from the New Warrior Training, a Jungian Vision Quest, and several Body Electric intensives. I have served on staff for many of these same experiences. I have seen and worked with many, many practitioners. So, it is my ultimate compliment that when I want to do my own personal work, I choose to work with Pono.

Pono is open, heart-centered, present, and real. He has superb boundaries; he is clean and clear with why he is doing what he is doing. He wants/needs nothing from his clients personally/emotionally/erotically. He simply wants to be an agent of care, healing, and love energy.

Pono is bright, well read, and inquisitive. He keeps exploring; always open to learning from others. He does his own personal work and is self-aware. He has an incredible physical setting and accommodations that facilitate retreat work to another level of focus and solitude. He is an overall amazing, caring, professional human being.”

Private Retreat Client

"Ron and Pono are deeply compassionate and caring healers who know exactly how to create safety and unfold deeply healing work at just the right pace. I arrived at my retreat at odds with a body that had experienced trauma and had let me down for decades. Through their heart-centered, patient, and attuned work, they helped me not only reconnect with my body but also rediscover all of the sensations, experiences, and richness that reside in it. I left the retreat inhabiting a unified, sensual, and functioning body whose gifts I am still discovering. I will absolutely return for another retreat as my relationship to this sacred and beautiful body grows. Thank you, Ron and Pono!" JP

“In addition to being one very fine human being, Pono is very skilled, takes his work seriously, and always with kindness! I would even call him a healer; I can confidently say that he has helped me to regain a sense of wholeness after some difficult health challenges. Continuing sessions with Pono has become part of my practice of self-care! I heartily recommend him for anyone who wants to learn more about taking care of their body and themselves!”  E.M.
