I’ve been dancing hula since the age of five under the direction of the late Bernice Reis of San Francisco. My love of hula led me to performing for many audiences that needed spiritual healing. Through the years, I have performed for many convalescent homes, hospitals, festivals and milestone celebrations of life. Not only was dancing hula a form of spiritual healing for myself and others, but it was the driving force that allowed me to start teaching it to others.
Dancing and teaching the hula has been one of the ways for me to live a fulfilling life. Matching people with their dream job or profession also fulfills my life and has been my career since I graduated from California State University, Hayward with a degree in Health Sciences and a concentration in Human Resources Management.
With 20 years in the recruiting industry, I currently work in Talent Acquisition and Inclusion & Diversity at Sandia National Laboratories. Coaching people through their job search and coaching managers with how to identify talent, led me to fulfill yet another calling of mine – life coaching.
I am now a Certified Professional Co-Active Coach from The Co-Active Training Institute, one of the first coaching schools to be accredited by the International Coach Federation. I coach private clients in all areas of life – Health, Money, Spirituality, Relationships, Career and Personal Development.
What makes me unique from other coaches is that I have combined my passion for hula dance and my natural coaching abilities to form HU-LA, Healing Us – Living Aloha.
Does my coaching incorporate hula? Maybe, maybe not.
The idea is to incorporate healing through body movement, in any form of dance or by simply getting out of your comfort zone and moving the body to create energy and healing. More importantly, my coaching style is geared towards living the aloha spirit. According to Hawaii State Legislature, in chapter 5 of revised statutes 5-7.5 “Aloha Spirit”. (a) “Aloha Spirit” is the coordination of mind and heart within each person. It brings each person to the self. Each person must think and emote good feelings to others.
HU-LA will teach you to discover your values and honor them without self-doubt or judgment. HU-LA will transform your emotions into positive action and help you find more balance in life. HU-LA will challenge you to be more resourceful and naturally creative in order to live a more, authentic and purposeful life!
I am the genuine healer that dances into the lives of those who seek to create positive change in the world.Jeralyn Galban Kabigting
