The Uzo Method Project @ Camp Maui’tondo

I have felt nothing but gratitude since my return from Hawaii. The sights and sounds of Maui is indescribable. i was thoroughly inspired and can’t wait to get back. In the meantime, here is a very shallow view of my experience. We stayed at a YMCA camp and my roomies were so much fun. Le Fluer, a new friend took me to the Tarot patch and we walked through and absorbed all the magical energy, it was GREAT!!!

The ladies in action, (bunk mates, room mates, camp mates)


One of many great views


Having one of tha best banana breads ever
Tarot-(Ede in igbo, coc in Yoruba, Tarrot in certain parts of the Congo)


When I arrived, I had to capture the room with all its incredible energy, its hard to believe what happens in this room

It was an amazing experience and I was delighted that camp participants absolutely embraced this crazy idea of collecting empirical data to assess energy and stress levels pre and post the Uzo Method session.

But first, the Nigerian dance experience was delightful. Akeem is Yoruba and I am Igbo. Together, we are WaZoBia (Without the Zo) This fusion of Igbo and Yoruba dance is an innovative way for community to find similarities in culture to blend and to be one. After all  that”s what MAMA AFRICA would want. Enjoy.

The Uzo Method Project got mixed into the drum and dance camp community. We danced, we sang, we stretched, guided imagery was used, spirits invoked and voila….magic happens. Photos by Ingrid Martin

Now the results.

Below is a very simple picture of what happened. We already know that music and movement increase endorphins and reduce stress hormones keeping us healthy I asked 10 participants to volunteer to give me feedback about their experience.
