Kawaikapuokalani K. Hewitt
Kawaikapuokalani K. Hewitt is HawaiiMana’s™ Hawaiian cultural advisor and spiritual partner. A direct descendant of King Kamehameha the Great, Kawai is a Hawaiian master healer, trained and educated in the ancient knowledge of Hawaiian healing arts and sciences. He is the current director of alternative medicine and healing at the Waimanalo Health Center on the island of Oahu.
As a respected Hawaiian spiritual and cultural leader, he is often referred to as Hawaii’s modern day ambassador of the Hawaiian Culture. Every year, he performs in and overees hundreds of Hula competitions throughout Hawaii, Japan and the world. He is also a composer with multiple Hoku awards, the highest accolade for Hawaiian music. His new book on Hula and healing chants, Kumu Hula, was released in Japan in early 2007. Kawai currently oversees 5 million practitioners of hula and “Healing Arts” with over 2,000 hula schools in Japan and 22 retail Hula stores under his association.
As a traditional Hawaiian master healer, Kawai uses natural botanicals and the power of prayer, song and mana (divine power) to bring health to many people who come to him. In one case, a man who was hospital-bound suffering from bone cancer claims he was healed by listening to Kawai’s song, “Kawailehua.” The man believed the song contained a formula for healing energies that allowed for his healing to take place. In another instance a boy was brought out of a coma and cured of brain damage by Kawai’s prayer and use of a stone necklace with special healing mana. As director of alternative medicine and healing at the Waimanalo Health Center he helps heal many patients and does not charge for his services.
Master Shen Wu
HawaiiMana™ is proud to have the great Master Shen Wu associated with our company. Regarded as one of China’s Master Healers, Master Wu is gifted with centuries of Qi Gong healing skills and herbal medicinal knowledge passed down through a long line of tradition Chinese healers. Famous throughout China and Asia, Master Shen Wu has been the subject of countless news features documenting the healing success he achieves through the ancient art of healing Qi Gong, herbal remedies and now musical Qi Gong.
Born into a Physician’s family and descendent of renown natural healers, it was not until age eight that he became aware of his special healing gift. Upon inheriting his family’s centuries-old historical herbal formulas, medicinal records and ancient scrolls, he absorbed himself in the study of ancient Chinese medicine literature. He has been able to revive and even advance the therapy used and enjoyed only by royal families some 3,000 years ago. The science was thought to have long vanished with the end of the Chinese dynasties, but his miraculous accomplishments have caused a renewed interest in Qi Gong. His healing performances are sold out a year in advance throughout Asia and he is currently a special guest of the Chinese government to continual the revival of Qi Gong healing throughout various provinces. After helping numerous patients in China, Master Wu has helped many patients in USA through his frequent seminars conducted in different states for the last few years. He has helped many patients with terminal diseases and chronic conditions. Not only the suffering and pain was reduced and quality of life improved, but further spread of the disease was stopped and even reverted in many cases. Dr. Neil Finkler, M.D. of ORMC who specializes in oncology, believes much benefit can accrue by the combination of this ancient therapy with modern medical technology. Master Wu is the president of the Advance Qi Gong Science Center, director of Traditional Chinese Medical Institute and Adjunct Assistant Professor in the Department of Complementary and Alternative Medicine, John A. Burns School of Medicine, University of Hawaii at Manoa.
About Qi Gong: In Chinese “Qi” means energy and “Gong” means exercise. Qi Gong is based on a series of exercises that increase the flow of vital energy in the body by stimulating and balancing the flow of the Qi meridians. Meridians are channels for the movement of Qi within the human body that connect internal organs to other parts of the body. Through Qi Gong exercises, treatments, music and specific herbal formulas, the flow of inner energy is improved and enhances the body’s ability to heal itself, resist colds and flu and daily stress.
