This month’s speaker is Sandi Alstrand on the topic “Bringing Ritual into Daily Life for Inner Peace and Happiness.”

“We perform rituals every day, although most of the time we don’t recognize we are doing so,” says Alstrand. “Mindfully engaging in rituals can enhance health and overall happiness.”

In this talk, learn what rituals are and how they can bring more peace and fulfillment to our everyday lives, plus find rituals that you can easily perform alone or with others.

Alstrand has been a social worker for over 30 years and is currently working on her master’s degree in Consciousness and Transformative Studies. She was the Case Manager at Ku‘ikahi Mediation Center for over four years and has volunteered with Rainbow Friends Animal Sanctuary for over five years, coordinating their free community spay/neuter clinics. she enjoys playing music and is currently a professionally trained volunteer mediator at Ku‘ikahi.


Ku‘ikahi’s Brown Bag Lunch Series is free and open to the public. Attendees are encouraged to bring their own lunch, enjoy an informal and educational talk-story session, and meet others interested in “Finding Solutions, Growing Peace.”
