"Lei'ohu and Maydeen created the vessel of Aloha spirit at the beginning and ending of each five-day retreat, allowing us to absorb the Spirit of Aloha while we were meditating, doing yoga, listening to Ram Dass, and chanting with Krishna Das. It was all held in Aloha. They made that gift to us" – Mirabai Bush
