THOUGHTS TO PONDER FOR THE SERIOUS STUDENT
There are many people advertising instruction in Lomi Lomi,
and it is wonderful when the traditional teachings of Aunty
Margaret Machado are honored and shared, as that was her dream
and intention. However there are some workshops that are being
taught in a diluted and watered down format, with incorrect
information, additional teachings and massage strokes and
movements that are conjured up and passed off as the "real
deal." They have absolutely nothing to do with what our Beloved
Kumu actually taught. It is time to expose the harm that is
being done to a once hidden art form, by people who stand to
profit from it. They are disseminating incorrect information
about it, Aunty Margaret and her Ohana. Many of my students
have requested that I speak out about the current state of
affairs regarding Hawaiian Lomi Lomi, so I have risen to their
challenge and I am at the beginning stages of developing a non
profit foundation for the sole purpose of supporting the true
teaching of my Kumu, and for my students, who are also in her
lineage. Many of them are Hawaiian at Heart, and Aunty Margaret
said that "GOD TOLD HER TO TEACH STUDENTS WHO WERE NOT
NECESSARILY HAWAIIAN BY BIRTH, BUT HAWAIIAN AT HEART."
PLEASE SIMPLY CHECK OUT THE CREDENTIALS OF YOUR TEACHER, AND
PRAY FOR DIVINE GUIDANCE TO FIND THE RIGHT ONE FOR YOUR HIGHEST
GOOD. MAHALO, Tamara Conlan Mondragon, Founder of Hawaiian
A little background
Tamara Conlan Mondragon began practicing Hawaiian Lomi Lomi
in 1972 when her apprenticeship started with native Hawaiian
healer Margaret Machado or "Auntie Margaret," as she is
lovingly referred to by her students. Since then, Tamara has
shared this healing art with people from all walks of life,
including the (formerly) Los Angeles Raiders football team. In
1984 she became a certified Hawaiian Lomi Lomi instructor after
asking for and receiving her Kumu Auntie Margaret's permission
and blessing to teach the original knowledge that she passed
down to her in her lineage.
Auntie Margaret eventually opened the first Hawaii state
licensed school that operated specifically to teach Hawaiian
Lomi Lomi. Tamara still has the original copy of The Theory and
Practice of Body Massage, published in 1969, that Auntie gave
her and used as a textbook for instruction in anatomy and
physiology. In 1974 Auntie breathed the Ha breath on Tamara
upon completion of her apprenticeship, and told her that it was
time for her to fly to Oahu and take the Hawaii State Board of
Massage examination. When Tamara protested, Auntie told her
that her destiny was to spread this ancient healing art
throughout the world and keep Auntie's family lineage of Lomi
Lomi alive and pure. Tamara traveled from the Big Island to
Oahu to honor her teachers request, and still has a framed copy
of the original license granted to her in September of 1974
from the State Board of Massage in Hawaii. Now, in 2013,Tamara
is still teaching and honoring requests to continue the legacy
of her Kumu. Please visit Tamara's Bio page for more
