What you'll do

*Please check my Instagram @eco_mindful_lei or my website www.ecomindfullei.com for alternate dates and specials*

Come meet with me under a tree at the iconic Waikiki Queens Surf Beach. Here
we will be mindfully creating a sustainable, flower crown lei-called Lei Po’o. We will enjoy plenty of shade, & beautiful ocean breezes as we mindfully enliven all of our 5 senses in this epic Hawaiian location.

We will open with meditation & Oli (Hawaiian Chant) to help our minds enter the healthy "flow state" that connecting with nature can ease our brains into.

See, smell, hear, & feel all of our surroundings & mindfully learn the beautiful art of creating a gorgeous Lei Po’o-which is a head lei using a wili wrapping technique.

We will be using seasonal local flowers & greenery, many of which I grow on my own property, and the rest I mindfully forage for. You will have at least 6 types of foliage to choose from to create your very own unique lei. All materials used to construct the Lei Po’o is 100% biodegradable.

I’ll snap some cute pics of you with your unique Lei Po’o.

After we will enjoy some local seasonal fruit.
In closing, we will show respect and gratitude with a final "Mahalo" to express Aloha 'Āina meaning to love the land/that which feeds and sustains us.
Other things to note
Wear comfortable clothes for the weather that day. Parking is metered along Kalakaua so bring coins. You can pay for parking by the hour in the Honolulu Zoo parking lot with credit card. Bathrooms are nearby.

Where you'll be

I like to set up at a picnic table under a tree, away from the hustle & bustle of downtown Waikiki but yet walking distance. I will contact each guest 30 minutes before experience with more specific location of where I set up.

In the event of rain I will change location to indoor location within 1 mile away & let each guest know at least an hour before.

Rated 4.95 out of 5 from 63 reviews.

This was such a beautiful and mesmerizing experience in Oahu :) It was conducted in a very small group, and everyone was wearing masks throughout the entire session so it felt extra safe even in this crazy year. Gina was a great instructor, very thoughtful and cheerful, and she told us beautiful stories about Hawaii as well. Lei Po’os we made turned out very pretty as well, and it made us feel special and precious! Can’t wait to come back for another amazing time to make another one :) If you’re hesitating, please go ahead; seriously this is one of the best things we’ve done in Hawaii.

This is my first time in Hawaii and colors and flowers are my passions. As I booked my trip, I was looking for something special to do. This experience went even beyond my expectations!Gina is such a nice and unique person. The flowers she personally picked from her neighborhood for us and all of her help plus the genuine atmosphere she creates with her smile made us create beautiful lei po’o. If you are here, go for it!I would do it over and over again!honestly, the best money I spent so far (also, the price is VERY reasonable). Mahalo Gina for this special time. See you next time!

Magnificent experience!! It opened my senses to appreciate mother earth's nature. Gina is beautiful inside and out. She's very knowledgeable with her craft. She cared for her students. For future students, no experience needed, no high expectations from you. Guaranteed, you will discover your inner strengh, arts & talent in creating your own head flower crown, known as Lei Po'o. I found a friend in Gina and my classmates.💗 As I walk back to my hotel, every flower garden of different color and shapes, I see myself making more Lei Po'o. Mahalo😘🤙
