Hua is a long time resident of the Central Coast, and has been leading an annual celebration of the traditional Long Dance for nearly two decades now. Falling on or about the autumnal equinox each year and lasting a few days, the Long Dance event gathers together some one hundred or more women into a great community circle of drumming, singing, sweat lodge and teaching that culminates in an all night ceremony lasting from sunset to sunrise. With the event held on remote private land near Lopez Lake, both men and women participate in the village building and the communal creation of sacred space that makes possible this highpoint of the spiritual calendar. It is a mighty undertaking, requiring weeks and months of advance planning, organization, and the gathering together of materials, resources and various community partners.
In addition to the Long Dance and Full Moon circle which she leads in Arroyo Grande, Hua also offers classes, teachings, services and counseling to a wide variety of audiences, individuals and her extended community. See her offerings page for more information on the types of healings, ceremonies and teachings she can make available for you. Hua also makes beautiful and powerful ceremonial jewelry which is for sale thru a website and she can make custom designs as well, including particular stones or cherished pieces you have long hoped to wear in a special way.
Empowerment, beauty and wisdom - in the myriad forms these take - these are the gifts that Hua shares with her community. Please join us if you feel the call! There are many ways to participate and learn more what it means to be a human being fully engaged in this amazing journey that is our life.
There is a nice article from the San Luis Obsipo Tribune about Hua, written by Gayle Cuddy. And here is another recent article about Hua from the Women's Press, published in San Luis Obispo county.
