Aloha Lomi ‘Ohana,
The Bresenden family & Ho’omana Spa Maui are very excited to announce the recipient of the 5th Annual Tim Bresenden Scholarship Award – Ms. Caroline Chung from San Francisco, CA.
We are so pleased with the response to the Scholarship announcement. There were many candidates that shared their life stories, experiences and goals in beautiful and compelling ways. We are grateful for the opportunity to hear of those seeking to bring healing touch to the world around them. We send a warm and heartfelt aloha to every applicant.
For those of you who may be unfamiliar with the Tim Bresenden Memorial Scholarship, it is offered every year as a loving tribute to a man who committed his life to serving his family, friends & the greater community by acting as a peacemaker & bridge builder to bring together people from all walks of life. This auspicious award is given to one individual each year that aspires to exemplify this spirit of building community & inspires others by doing so.
This scholarship awards the recipient U.S. Airfare, accommodations, & NCTMB approved – 60 C.E. Units in Hawaiian Healing Bodywork.
Our 2014 recipient, Caroline Chung, wrote, “My ultimate goal in life is to provide a space where I can help people heal and/or teach them to heal themselves. We all have the power to heal ourselves and we all have the power to help others in the process. I have a vision of a world where we can minimalize people’s sufferings and offer them the tools to turn their lives around for the better. I believe this can really transform the world we live in and going to Maui to learn Lomi Lomi is only going to reaffirm this dream of mine.” As a cancer survivor, her journey to health and healing and the desire to share it with others resonated with us as a wonderful way to make peace and build bridges.
We wish her the very best as she travels to Maui for the Lomi Lomi week retreat in October.
As a bonus for the rest of this year’s applicants, we would like to offer a discount of $150 off of our Lomi Lomi Massage Fundamentals & Hot Stones Therapy Retreat at Ho’omana Spa Maui. This offer will be available for use toward our upcoming training dates in October, or for any available classes during our 2015 training dates. We encourage all of you to apply again as this is an ongoing scholarship & will be offered again in 2015.
Congratulations to this year’s award winner & we want to sincerely thank all of our applicants for sharing your visions & journeys with us, for they were all of great intention & truly inspirational.
