Ku’ikahi Mediation Center will host a free talk on Nov. 19 about reducing stress during the holiday season.

The talk is part of the mediation center’s “Finding Solutions, Growing Peace” Brown Bag Lunch Series.

Erika Ginnis will conduct the presentation, entitled “Stress Release Techniques for a Joyous and Peaceful Holiday Season.” She is the author of Essential Mysteries: A User’s Guide for the 21st Century Mystic and has served as a spiritual counselor, mediation teacher, healer, and ordained minister since 1982.

“Join us for valuable holiday stress release techniques,” said Program Coordinator Gail Takaki.  “Erika steps beyond her role as Foreclosure Dispute Resolution Specialist at Ku‘ikahi to share exercises in grounding, meditation, and visualization that can help you navigate through the hectic holiday season with greater inner peace.”

Ginnis owns Inspiration is the Inbreath of Spirit and Inbreath Communication. She received a Bachelor’s degree from Western Washington University in “Technic Systems: Integrating Principles in Dance, Music and Natural Science.”


The monthly Brown Bag Lunch Series sessions are held on the third Thursday of each month at the Office of the Prosecuting Attorney. Sessions are free and open to the public. Attendees should bring their own lunch and prepare to join in to the informal and educational talk-story session.
