Spiritual leaders from across the islands including Kahoʻolawe and as far away as Mexico, India and South America held hands and welcomed Earth Day`s sunrise with E Ala Ē. We received warm wishes from Brahmin priests from around the world and even spiritual leaders atop Monte Picchui in Peru who let us know they were with us at sunrise in their time zone.

Find a sunrise this weekend at 6 am and your spirit will soar as ours did on Earth Day. Mahalo to @earthdaynetwork @palaupresidentoffice and so many others who joined hearts and hands.

🔊 An estimated 15 to 20 tons of marine trash are washed ashore in Hawai`i every year. 96 percent of it is made from #plastic. Our island garbage is also seabound especially in heavily used beach parks with uncovered trash bins. On Earth Day, @lovetheseaplasticfree @padiaware, @aqualungdivers, @earthdaynetwork and a host of local divers and dive groups led #DiveForEarthDay across #hawaii to clear our coastal waters as part of Volunteer Month Hawaii. They were joined by @govhawaii @govjoshgreen 🌊 Wait til you get to end of video and see all that @lovetheseaplasticfree collected.

The rising of the sun is a crucial component to the beginning of a new day in Hawaiian culture and to honor a new opportunity at change comes with the chant or ‘oli, E Ala Ē.

On #EarthDay this last saturday, April 22, we had an overwhelming number of participants globally who participated from all walks of life and all corners of the Earth to E Ala Ē!

Mahalo nui to every participant for the outpouring of support to both our planet and our practice to enlighten the light within us as we began our day!
