the white lodge

This is the white lodge, a place where I like to go and be one with the wonder, the beauty and the peace. Modern life is a busy life, there is so much going on in the world and it is overwhelming to the senses, the disposition and the constitution. It has been very important to my artistic practice to make an effort to get out of the studio and explore the world around me. The white lodge is where the elders live, it is the place where the eagles soar, and the ravens play. In its winter coat the white lodge sparkles and the air is crisp. I come to here to fill myself with its energy and replenish the soul, and give the heart much needed nature time, so it can recharge and gain strength for this crazy world we humans have created.

flower power 

Somedays you just need to stop and smell the flowers, and this is exactly what hälts did.

Here are some fotos from hälts moms secret magic garden, it takes a lot of work, care and attention to maintain a garden, this has been a great lesson for hälts and inspires him to put that kind of carr and attention into his art practice.

life is full of everything imaginable and unimaginable, taking the time to sit and let the human spirit express is a key to a healthy life

a healing journey 

Mahaloness is a way of being, it is not a dogma, nor is it a religion, it is derived from the word mahalo, it is an extension mahalo, it is to be in state of thankfulness and in a state of Aloha, taught to me by an elder who felt compelled to pass along some of his wisdom, his name was Kamillo, shared insights into his people, played his ukulele until dawn, and the shared stories of Hawaii, ancient to present. The birth of Mahaloness started when hälts, the author and artist behind Mahaloness, was in a period of conflict between being an artist and trying to make a living with his art. This created conflict between making art to survive versus making art to heal. The line was drawn in the sand and a tug of war ensued, back and forth, trying to find balance, which seemed ever so close, yet so far away. Following years of this back and forth hälts reached a crossroad, choose to be a struggling artist, with a cynical attitude, choose a path to spirit reclamation and a chance to fill the shoes of healer. He made the right choice. Thank you and Mahaloness to those who have witnessed some the journey, hälts remains humble in is here to serve.

Moments in creative space with hälts, there is a little bit of everything here, including a hälts hybrid (top) and some fotos from a recent mushroom healing forest forage camping sojourn with a beautiful friend, and an elders path hälts spent a large part of the summer working on, so many lessons, so much wisdom, and as a friend pointed out, a lifelong endeavour.

Loving Kindness

Whatever you do, don’t doubt

do it with love

Authenicity

Authentic love

Be present in what you do

Honor spirit

even when it seems tough

Be kind

Don’t reject your past

Accept it

Be grateful

Reclaim your Spirit

Rekindle your faith

Show yourself love

Even if it hurts

You are not alone

Remember this

Love your ancestors

Make them proud

Be in peace

For this life is a gift.
