Thank you for pre-registering for San Diego’s Empowerment Day March 21st, 2010.

If you found your way to this page and haven’t pre-registered yet, please do so here.

The March 21st “Makahiki” Firewalk is handed down from a Firewalk tradition practiced for hundreds of years throughout Polynesia. The sacred ceremony continues to be a source of Faith and Inspiration.

The Umu Ki training develops qualities of Compassion, Unity, Harmony, and an experience of Divine Inpsiration for people who participate.

Read some Articles about the history of the Umu Ki Ceremony

“Umu Ki”  literally means “Ti Plant Oven”. The Polynesians built a firepit, and cooked their food in it. They usually covered the pit with Ti Plant, thus the name Umu Ti or Umu Ki.

Below are a few pictures from some previous “Makahiki” Firewalks
