Creating together with other people is one of Kailea’s passions. In this co-creating, she has this quality of truly listening to the needs of the people she works with, and therefore she is able to understand what can arise from that collaboration. In this way, she helps the highest potential to emerge. Whatever Kailea does, turns into something beautiful.

Earth Is `Ohana is her personal response to the many stories that have and continue to shape her. 

Earth Is `Ohana is a practical educational course aiming to reconnect our relationship to the earth as a tool to fight our environmental reality. During the course participants become aware of the increasing deterioration of our land and resources through simple and relatable activities. Earth is `Ohana is a space to stop and feel what it is we’re surrounded by, what it is we don’t want to lose and how we can work together to survive the upcoming transition.

The space of learning and sharing created and facilitated by Kailea was deeply integrative and nurturing. Our voices and silences were welcomed and respected in ways that made me feel safe in sharing my questions and thoughts. Also, the combination of spoken, visual and active/interactive learning and sharing activities was very helpful and expanding.
