Creating a Happy & Healthy Life and Relationships
through grace, gratitude & blessing.
What sets Kaleo apart from other Storytellers is her versatility in what she brings to her storytelling and how she is able to engage her audience, in both small, intimate and larger settings, for them to become an integral part of the entire experience.  She combines her intoxicating gift for storytelling with a range of song styles.  She sometimes creates a brilliant hybrid through fusing her rich and warm voice with the deeply soothing and relaxing vibrations of her small harp.  She also might use an instrumental track or sing acapella for a song.  And she enjoys it when she has other musicians with her.  Kaleo also shares an ancient form of storytelling from the Hawaiian tradition, their traditional Hula.  Kaleo's intention is to help the audience to return home feeling renewed, inspired, energized, uplifted, united and more at peace within themselves.   She can also bring the warm sun of Hawai'i to you through her Hawaiian Musical Storytelling concerts for your special luau party.

The HeartFull Connections™ Center helps you to create a better relationship with your world so your experience of the world changes to one of more joy, fun and fulfillment.  Using practical and simple tools from two Ancient Age traditions - the Hawaiian "Living the Aloha Spirit" and the Chinese Tao Law of Relativity, it is a Heart, Mind and Spirit integration system for self-evolvement and Transformation.

Me ke aloha pumehana (with warm regards),
“Kaleo has the most soul-touching power with her voice, harp and songs….like being wrapped up in a warm blanket and held by tender arms.”
 
“Kaleo’s storytelling always brings me back to what really matters in life, love & relationships.”


"Kaleo's kind spirit and the gentleness of her words and thoughts just make our hearts rejoice.  When we thought of fun things to offer to our residents, she was the first person who came to mind – because of that gentle spirit; and because after the show, there were smiles on everyone’s faces.  It was as if our spirit was lifted up."  

"Kaleo has such an ease interacting with her audience, with her rich and warm voice and as an accomplished harpist and a beautiful dancer.  Any community that has her come and share her gifts will find it to be an enriching experience for everyone there."

Current News from Kaleo

2015 has already proven to be a fun and exciting year.  I have been sharing my Musical Storytelling and Hula at several of the services at both the Center For Spiritual Living and the Unity Center of Mills River - now known as the Unity Center of the Blue Ridge.  I shared one of the songs from my CD, Aloha is My Home, at Unity.  What made it so special was Richard Shulman accompanying me with the Unity band.  Richard, Shawn Gallaway and I wrote that song in 2007 for my CD, Ulana, The Way of the Heart, and this was the first time Richard and I performed it together since 2008.   I also have put together two new videos that are now on youtube.  You can check them out at: Kaleo Wheeler Musical Storytelling and The Art of Hawaiian Storytelling - traditional Chant and Hula.  

And now with spring on the horizon and winter, hopefully, behind us, especially here in western North Carolina; I am looking forward to some fun and exciting things that are coming up.    I will offering hula as part of an event through Pardee Hospital in Hendersonville on March 7 - Dancing through the Decades.  The focus of the event is to bring awareness to cardiovascular health, and there has been quite a bit of research in Hawai'i on the benefit of hula on that, especially for recovery.  And then in April, I will at the Henderson County Library, Fletcher Branch for 4 consecutive Saturdays.  The first two will be Musical Storytelling concerts, and the last two Introduction to Hula.  I did a Musical Storytelling concert there last fall, and had a great time.  I am looking forward to the opportunity to doing more there.    

And I am happy to report that my hula classes are growing more and more each week in both Asheville and Hendersonville.  We are definitely building 'Ohana (family).  The women who are attending are so interested and committed to learning hula.    It is an absolute joy to be able to dance and share this wonderful tradition with them.   

I am also in the process of developing some online teleseminars and webinars that I am very excited about.  I expect to be offering my first one within the next month or so. Check back for more information on that.

And in the meantime, many blessings and wishes of aloha to you!!!
