Kaleo is a charismatic, powerful and unique Inspirational Storyteller through blending her "Talk Story" together with her intoxicating gift as a Singer and Dancer
"Your storytelling convinces me that the shortest distance between two people is a story. Thank you for illustrating that stories come to us through many ways, some of them without words."
"Kaleo’s songs and stories are very calming and helps me center and breath deep…Sort of like being wrapped up in a warm blanket and being held by tender arms.”
Kaleo Wheeler is a charismatic, powerful and unique Inspirational Storyteller, through blending her "Talk Story" together with her intoxicating gift as a Singer, and Dancer. Whether sharing her message of love and heartful connections with her voice and small harp or as a Hawaiian Storyteller with their chant and hula, and whether it is in the small intimate setting of a private party or a larger speaking event with hundreds of people; she effortlessly engages the audience in becoming an integral part of the entire experience.
Kaleo creates an atmosphere in which the audience experiences an evening of music, stories, laughter and poignant memories to help everyone there to remember to come from our hearts—and from there magic can happen. Each story she shares reflects a universal, life-affirming message and insight that can help the audience to remember our individual stories, our sense of purpose and value, and to better understand ourselves. In remembering and sharing each of our own stories, we can find our strength, interdependence and independence, self-esteem and satisfaction with ourselves and who we are. We realize our commonality with others and experience a deeper sense of community.
Kaleo's intention is to help the audience to return home feeling renewed, inspired, energized, uplifted, and more at peace within themselves and with their world
