Keaau Nutrition Center Seniors Packing Them In

Backpack Project

Seniors from the Kea’au Nutrition Center donated 25 backpacks and bags Wednesday (October 7) in connection with a drive to collect used backpacks for people in need.

“We would like to thank them for their dedication and support of the Puna community,” said Community Police Officer Scott Amaral.

Nonprofit agencies are distributing the backpacks at women’s shelters, homeless shelters and transitional housing facilities. Police Chief Harry S. Kubojiri offered police stations as drop-off points to make it convenient for members of the public to donate backpacks for the drive, which was held during August and September.

The public may continue to drop off backpacks at police stations and officers will pass them along to the appropriate agencies.

Founder of the Institute of Soul Healing and Enlightenment, Dr. and Master Zhi Gang Sha will bring hundreds together for two weekends of healing and rejuvenation October 29 to November 1 and November 3 to 5, at Hilton Waikoloa Village on Hawaii’s Big Island.

Sha is a medical doctor in China and a doctor of traditional Chinese medicine in China and Canada . Over time, he has learned to combine the knowledge of energy through his practice of martial arts – he is a Grandmaster of tai chi, qigong, the I Ching and feng shui – with traditional Chinese acupuncture to create his own unique acupuncture system. Sha is also the sole 373rd-generation lineage-holder of Peng Zu, whose life-long anti-aging system has been passed down through oral tradition to no more than three lineage-holders per generation for more than 4,300 years.

“As a student of Dr. Sha, I cannot say enough about how his teachings have changed my life,” said Rulin Xiu who lives on the Big Island . “More than being about the individual, his unique legacy, in my opinion, is to teach us to tap in to the energy within our soul to transform ourselves and the world we live in. The path becomes evident to everyone who comes to his workshops. I’d highly recommend that anyone seeking peace for themselves and for our world attend one or both of the retreats.”

On October 29 through November 1, 2009, individuals will have the opportunity to see, listen, and learn from Sha at the Hawaii Soul Healing and Enlightenment Retreat at Hilton Waikoloa Village . November 3 through November 5, Sha will lead the Hawaii Divine Rejuvenation and Longevity Retreat also at Hilton Waikoloa Village . Interested attendees can register online for either or both of these life-changing workshops at DrSha.com or by calling toll free at 1-888-339-6815.

Sha is recognized as a pioneer in healing the soul, mind and body using the power of the soul. In 2008, he founded the World Soul Healing, Peace and Enlightenment Movement, which invites people worldwide to join in chanting Divine Soul Songs for world healing and peace. Sha has traveled to many continents where he is warmly welcomed by audiences with his message: The Soul Can Heal. “Love melts all blockages,” says Master Sha. “Forgiveness brings peace.”
