Enthused by what I personally learned and experienced, I established Urban Huna to promote the practice and sharing of, knowledge about Huna in order to help people achieve their potential. While it is recognised that not everyone will visit Hawaii to experience Huna it is clear that the Huna philosophy and principles are timeless and transferable to all walks of life. Urban Huna aims to help people to discover the relevance and experience the magic of Huna where it is needed in modern urban lives.
A’ohe pau ka ‘ike i ka halau ho’okahi
– Not all knowledge is learned in one school
The saying above refers to the notion that there is valuable knowledge to be gained from many sources. Whilst recognising that there are different schools of thought with regards to Huna, much of my approach is inspired by the tradition of the Kahili family. This is sometimes referred to as the kalakupua (shamanic) adventurer tradition of Huna and is symbolised by the image of the polynesian canoe. That said, I take a pragmatic approach and in the spirit of the tradition I use what works i.e. what is effective, which may involve drawing on other sources as appropriate.
I am an Alaka’i of Aloha International. The Alaka’i are healers, teachers and leaders who have dedicated themselves to sharing Huna wisdom. I assist the present Kahu – Serge Kahili King in carrying out the mission of Aloha International and the Aloha Project through sharing Huna wisdom in order to make the world a better place. In old Hawaii, traditionally a name was given during training when a significant point had been reached. When I was ordained as an Alaka’i I was given the name ‘he kanaka ‘imi ‘ike ‘ana’ which loosely translates as ‘a man seeking knowledge’ reflecting my tendency to ask questions and seek more.
In addition to my work with Huna, I have trainined in a variety of modalities which include being a certified Trainer of Hypnosis; Certified Trainer of NLP (Neuro Linguistic Programming); Trainer of Future Life Progression FLP); NLP Master Coach; Time Line Therapy Master Practitioner; Thought Field Therapy (TFT) Advanced Meridan Therapy Practitioner and a Psy-Tap Psychosensory Techniques and Principles Practitioner. I have also worked in the Western Esoteric tradition.
I am extremely passionate about Huna and it’s simplicity, beauty and effectiveness. For me the practice of Huna has added no end of adventure to my life and I hope that it can do the same for you.
