a Wee Bit About
Spiritually Connected Weddings
Traditionally the sacred union of Marriage
is a Spiritually based ceremony that combines the
Love from the Heart and the Depth of one’s Soul
People have the intrinsic inspiration
To express their deepest expressions of Love
to not only their ‘Love’ and loved ones… but especially to
the ‘Divinity’ as they resonate from within
You now are Blessed with the choice in choosing
The most important part of being a Human…
One’s Higher Calling...
Your personal path of growth, a Spiritual connectedness to
the Divinity within your own True Nature…
A balanced perspective of abiding in a Bliss
that is not affected by materialistic drama
Sometime after the 1960’s,
we slowly started toward a path of personal inquiry
a Spiritual experience, as perceived in
the deepening of understanding in
finding and Abiding in one’s ‘center’
A connectiveness arises that seems to
Resonate with ‘the Ground of our Being’
An inspiration becomes envisioned to pursue a path to
Integrate Heart, Mind, Body and Spirit….
To understand ourselves more
and our place in the ‘timeless wonder of it all’
Along each step of this Path, we gain the experience of our True Nature
The more in touch we are with our ‘center’… or True Nature…
The less we are vulnerable to the inherent pain and suffering resulting from
the ignorance of our True Nature and disconnection from our ‘center’
When we can find the space to calm our body, quite our mind and
Rest with Awareness in the empty spaciousness of our Being…
Joy, Compassion, Unconditional Love and Equanimity arises naturally
No matter where you are along your Path, just being Aware of
the Inspiration to Stride along towards
the next stepping stone of personal Insights…
That in itself is an Enlightening Awakening
Those so Blessed
will naturally be compelled to integrate their Spiritual Inspirations
with a ceremony from the Heart and Soul
by a Spiritual Minister that is
Deeply connected to a personal Practice of Higher Consciousness
If one is spiritually inspired
and would like my
Personal Luv Story Blessing based on your Luv Story and
My life time of
in-depth immersion with meditation and spiritual philosophy...
I invite you to
send along your Luv Story…
What first attracted each of you…
What was the ‘glue’ that made it stick
Any challenges that had to be
overcome and Transcended
that ultimately made your
love and appreciation stronger
Goals as a couple, Personal goals… Professional goals… and
Spiritual goals insights and Inspirations
Describe your Spiritual Practice
or include inspiring words from
Saints and Sages…
I create one of a kind Blessing
that resonates with your Luv Story
and connects deeply with your
Insights and Aspirations
For most Spiritual traditions
particularly the Spiritual philosophies of
Buddhism, Zen, Advaita Vedanta,
Tibetan Bon and Dzogchen
There is an appreciation of
the present moment
Meaningful experiences in our lives
Can only occur in the ever-present moment
The Four Tibetan Immeasurable Virtues of
Unconditional Love, Joy,
Compassion and Equanimity
can only arise
if we are not distracted from the present
The way to enjoy Eternal Marital Bliss…Is to
Be fully present and content
in the Ever-Present Moment
Be Here Now!
and enjoy a Deeply Meaningful Ceremony
Engaging in A Better Understanding of
the Most Important Person in Your World
~ YOURSELF ~
When you can Calm your Heavily Distracted Mind
And Truly take the time to ‘Look Within’…
You will experience the ability to
~ Give Love ~
on a Simple yet Powerfully Deep and Natural level.
The Spiritual Connection of Two True Loves that
Grow through this Spiritual process together
has countless profound benefits.
Even though each will have their totally Individual
Perspectives, Dreams, Goals, Professional Paths...
Sharing this most Intrinsic, Deeply Embedded Connection
to the Spirit Within...
Carries a couple blissfully along the 'Path of Life'
Freed from the mental pain and suffering most couples
Unnecessarily put themselves through otherwise.
One that ‘practices’ Is naturally attracted to
Perpetuating a Calm ‘Witnessing’ perspective…
Not likely to allow
Out of control Egos and Emotions to drive their lives
Most other couples
Tend let their egos and emotions rule their life
Causing them to fly into a rage or an argument over
completely trivial and pointless reactions
Attempting to defend their fragile egos from
‘perceived’ threats to their vanity…
A staggering number of marriages have hit the rocks
by issues as mindless as
Not returning the lid to the toothpaste
Soon it’s a battle of egos…
Which reinforce the Magnitude of the Egos,
Inflating them to
Bigger than Life Proportions…
When it’s typically something as silly as
the ‘lid to the toothpaste’.

In the Polynesian ‘Way’ of ‘Story Talk’…
I begin with a big ‘group deep Breath’,
then break the ice and get the ball rolling with a wee bit of ‘story talk’ about the conch shell I’m using,
the one my wife The Maui arrying Muse uses, and the one that let go …
I then ‘weave’ this into
A Captivating Original Ceremony that Connects the
Ancient Royal Hawaiian Blessings and 'Legendary' use of
~ Mana ~
Their Divine Power
Connecting Them to the Land, Waters, Sky and
All that there is
The Ancient Royal Hawaiians - The Ali'i
Are said to be a direct blood line to the 'gods'
Nearly their every step was preceded by the blowing of a conch shell -
A call for all to show reverence.
I describe a few of the many uses and the 'meanings' behind the
Ancient Hawaiians use of the conch shell for Important Events...
Especially for the most honored event as
Blessing Two True Lovers in an Everlasting Bonding Commitment.
Here, "I talk a bit of story" about the large Trophy Trident that I am about to use and the nice big Queen Conch my wife Bobbie Jo - The Maui Marrying Muse - uses.
~ During our Sailing Adventures ~
While anchored in a remote part of Tonga, a local villager would paddle his home made boat-like craft out to "talk story" with me, mooch a cup of coffee, and
try to sell me 'a load of craft'
stuff that I already had a boat load of...
(apparently out of all the other boats, I must have had the best coffee ;-)
One day, he said,
He Now has a Cow and needs some good rope.
This time he had a big shell in his 'inventory' &
I had a boat-load of good 'ol spare rope.
My conch shell story always inspires
the Adventuresome Spirit in all my couples
have many questions about our 20,000 + miles of Sailing Adventures,
which I'm always happy to share my time after the ceremony "talking Story"
and answering the many inquisitive questions from those who say they too
have always wanted to sail away from it all...
The whole ceremony integrates
the Hawaiian Style Beach Wedding theme,
which also includes
A Hawaiian Lei Blessing and Exchange,
A Spiritually Hawaiian Ring Blessing
A Vow Exchange in Hawaiian
that I lead my couples thru... Fun stuff

Deepest expression of love
We sailed the South Pacific
for nearly four years on our sailboat HIPNAUTICAL…
then moved on to Maui...
10 years later
we are going with the Nautical Flow once more
aboard our new sailing home -
As the new year of 2020 began with the promise of perfect sight,
clear visions of an aspiring future were the harvest of Dreams to come.

As the new year of 2020 began with the promise of perfect sight,
clear visions of an aspiring future were the harvest of Dreams to come.
Our biz was doing great, but not great enough to buy a house or a condo
and renting in Maui for another 30 years is not inspiring.
Then Bobbie Jo had the perfect solution...
"Why not buy a sailboat that is comfortable to cruise and live on"
We figured to spend at least a few years
making the transistion from land to boat life.
We had no idea what 'life' will throw at us as this ride unfolds.
So by the end of January, we began to seek out our new home.
After literally searching the world, we started limiting our search to
how far we'd be willing to sail a 'new to us' boat back to Maui...
We found our Dream Boat in Mazatlan Mexico.
The sail back to Maui would be around 3300 miles, basically down wind.
Covid was not yet a concern when the boat hunt started,
but by the time I flew to Mazatlan to inspect the boat and put down a deposit,
masks were starting to appear at airports.
Not long after arriving back on Maui, reports around the world of
countires locking down all travel...
Almost 3 weeks before we had planned to fly out to the boat
for the major sail back to Maui,
we moved our flight up 3 times in less than 2 days
then left land life for our boat in less than 24 hours,
just a day ahead of being locked in Maui and locked out of Mexico.
Originally we had planned to get the boat ready as fast as possible,
take about 10 days then sail her back to Maui to cover
a full calender for the busy wedding season.
Once we arrived at our boat on March 10th
we felt we may have a bit more time on our hands than we thought we'd have
on account we may not be allowed to leave Mexico or re-enter the US ...
Which indeed was the case for some time.
A few days later it was apparent that our Luv Biz waz gonna tank for a wee bit...
That wee bit is still on going nearing the end of the year
as this pandemic will take some time.
Our world was literally crashing in all around us but,
we felt quite lucky to have landed a world away
with the promises of an adventurous life ahead.
We indeed felt lucky and opulent
as we scored an awesome condo for only $19/ day
in view of our catamaran in the marina Mazatlan.
We'd work all day on the boat,
then retreat to the jacuzzi for happy hours & hours;-)
We enjoyed the opulent condo for over 2 weeks
then moved aboard our new floating home...
we still enjoyed the jacuzzi happy hours for another 10 days.
On the 10th day as we walked back to the boat we got the news ...
the Mexican harbor masters are instructed to close all harbors Monday am.
It was Saturday evening... we'd be stuck for a countless eon...
but an old salty sailor next boat over told us to
"just leave before sunrise."
So that's we we did!
He also told us;
"If the Mexican Navy catches up to you,
Just act like dumb Americans.
They'll be expecting that and already have pity on us...
Use that pity... it's well earned."
This was our very first experience of moving the boat from the dock.
Now we felt the adrenalin of escaping the Mexican harbor master
just before the sun rose that faithful day.
The seas were a bit rough as waves were building up in the
tight channel that led us to the open ocean.
Once we bashed our way out into the open sea,
the adrenaline began to calm down to an exciting feeling that
we did it!
We ended up anchored off an adorable little isle just a mile off shore.
We spent the day "learning the ropes", sorting out the lines to control the sails.
The Manta 42 MK2 is very easy to sail as
all the lines come to one powerful electric wench for easy 1 or 2 crew sailing.
Once out of the marina's constraints we thought we had all the time in the world...
then we realized that we had to be gone before the hurrican season starts:-O
We enjoyed cruising to a number of spectacular anchorages and cute villiges
on our way to Puerto Vallarta where we would depart for Maui on May 7th.
I captured the essence of our travels throughout Mexico,
all along our 24 day passage to Maui on a GoPro.
Once back home I took over 5000 high resolution photos with my professional cameras with a 28 to 300mm zoom and a 11 to 28mm very wide angle lens.
Allow these slideshow videos to take you away to Nautical Bliss.
We completed our 24 day passage from Mexico to Maui on May 30th, 2020.
It was quite an ideal voyage as long rough passages go…
We managed to fix all the little things that broke along the way.
We have since been cruising around the Hawaiian Islands
getting used to our new Nautical Flow.
The endless horizons Bless us with world famous Hawaiian Sunsets
while our boat sails or sits at anchor in the clearest blue water on the planet.
Whale season is just beginning as I write this and several times this week
the whales we’ve seen in the distance during the day
come near our boat for a closer look just after sunset.
Dolphins and turtles (honu) often cruise by our anchored boat.
When you call or email us,
you too will feel our laid-back ‘Hang Loose’ Nautical groove
as you connect directly to our Luv Shopp on the Sea
aboard our sailing catamaran Chat d’O…
Which means ‘cat of the sea’. Like a shadow…
we leave only a nice groove in our wake.
