Weekend events in Maui to benefit Will Smith charities and metaphysics

The tourism season in Hawaii is most active not when the weather is the best there, but when it’s the worst everywhere else. Hence, as the continental US stands of the precipice of a full-scale temperature turn-down, Maui and the islands are poised to start hiking up hotel rates, airfare, and car rental to accommodate the influx of traffic. However, the worst of the influx isn’t reported to begin until the months of December-January, leaving the fall travelers with quite the advantage. Fortunately, Hawaii’s seasons range from wet for their winter months to a dry and hot summer, with ground temperature basically maintaining between 70-80 degrees.

That’s great news for all the fall travelers interested in taking the journey to our shores, because this weekend has planned a few very special treats for tourists and locals alike. This weekend, Sunday, October the 19th, join Buddha Maitreya the Christ for his OM Group Pyramid Meditation and Dharma Teaching. The cost of entry is $15 and includes a free meditation CD. The study itself focuses on the inner-self interacting with the world around you, and learning how to become complete in the midst of the 90-mile-an-hour days we are prone to customizing ourselves to.

If the teachings of metaphysics and Zen aren’t your cup of afternoon tea, than the presentation by international stylist Billy Yamaguchi presented by the Will Smith Foundation may be an applicable alternative. As a benefit to the Will Smith Foundation, this event will feature cocktails and a presentation by the internationally-renewed stylist and master of Feng Shui. The cost of the event is $175 per person and the proceeds will go toward ensuring that the charities sponsored by the Will Smith Foundation function nominally.  MAuiFall

Visitor Donna, who said with us this past September, commented:

My sisters and I were celebrating our birthdays and our mother (who passed away 6 years ago).  Our stay was wonderful.  Our room was well equipped for 4 women.  From the sounds of the ocean (all day) to our drive on the island was great.  We have already been talking about returning to Kaanapali Beach Resort in the near future.  We definitely needed more time to finish doing the things we wanted to do like horseback riding, zipline, the lavender fields and shopping on Front Street.  We were able to attend a Luau, Pacific Whale Foundation sunset dinner cruise, Aquarium and Snuba in Turtle Island.

Thank you for giving me the opportunity to congratulate you all on a beautiful stay at the Kaanapali Alii

Until we meet again,

Our first and hopefully not last stay with you was wonderful.  Each one of the staff persons we came in contact with went above and beyond their duties in a friendly manner.  Even our teenagers comment on how happy and pleasant everyone was  and for a teenager to notice those things is big!  We enjoyed all the authentic Hawaiian decor found in our condo.  How gracious for the owners to share their collection with others.  We certainly found the “spirit of the islands” at the Kaanapali Alii. Thank you!
