Hawaiian Spiritual Kumu

An Inspiration Behind HawaiiMana

From the biography of Kawaikapuokulani

"I began training to be a Kahuna under Aunty Emma DeFries.  Aunty Emma was a significant figure in Native Hawaiian culture and practices. Not only for her vast knowledge, but her legacy. She was a direct descendant of Hewahewa, Spiritual Advisor to Kamehameha the Great. The story of how I became her student was told in the Honolulu Weekly:

"A friend had told him that there was a kahuna woman swimming in the water, so Hewett went out after her. The old woman floating on the Ka’a’awa reef was a descendent of Hewahewa, kahuna nui to Kamehameha. When he reached her, she said to him, 'I want you to be my student,' and he was, until her death in 1980 at age 76.By that time, the young man had become AuntyEmma DeFries’ chosen protégé."

Today, I continue to share my knowledge with others in Hawaii and around the world. I am especially known for teaching the ways and meaning of Ho'oponopono. Living in balance and in harmony with others and with the land is very important for me and it is my mission to spread this message. I do my best to honor the traditions of Aunty Emma and the ancient Kahuna. I strive to bring their knowledge and practices to our busy modern life by preserving the foundations and meanings and tailoring the applications to help my students make sense of our often confusing society."

"The due diligence of being human means becoming AWARE of what’s different now and not the same as before and consider a value in a shift in our thinking."


The HawaiiMana Commitment

What is the Shift to The HawaiiMana Commitment?

The "Shift" in our understanding about food and nutrient rich crops goes beyond just the farming practices like organic and non organic on top of the soil alone. It's the understanding that the condition of our soil's own biome below the surface is as essential to us all as our own internal gut biome certainly is.  We support Regenerative Agriculture both land and sea that focuses on nutrient rich or nutrient dense soil producing crops over the larger commercial or Intensive Agricultural farming methods that focus more on high calorie and starch content crops that end up with significantly depleted vitamin and essential mineral content in our fruits and vegetable and thus end up in our own gut biome just as depleted. Healthy soil produces healthy plants that produce healthy people, and healthy plants don’t always need fertilizers... and neither do people.
