Amongst many books that inspired me was Serge King’s Urban Shaman. For me it bought together what at first might seem to be two juxtaposed concepts, that of shamanism and urban living (which I also equated with an element of westernised contemporary living). It was over 12 years ago that I first read the book and a lot has happened since then. What excited me was that it … [Read more...] about Urban Shamanism Revisited
The Importance of Symbolism Philosophies from around the world, including Huna, draw upon a vast store of symbolism for different purposes. The nature of symbols vary greatly and include gestures, movements, objects and images. There is a great body of literature and lore concerned with the importance, interpretation and use of various symbols. Concerning symbols, the … [Read more...] about Serge King Discusses the Eye of Kanaloa Symbol in Huna
I went to a talk recently by Rupert Sheldrake the English author and biologist, perhaps most well known for his hypothesis of morphic resonance which he expounded in the early eighties. The event I attended was about the topic of his new book ‘Science and Spiritual Practices: Transformative experiences and their effects on our bodies, brains, and health’. In this book, he … [Read more...] about Reflections: Spiritual Practices from a Huna Perspective
The Aloha Spirit In a recent discussion with Serge King, I asked him about the notion of the Aloha Spirit. Sometimes open to misinterpretation, the Aloha Spirit is part of a very practical philosophy and is an integral principle of Huna. Serge describes how Aloha is the happy part of any relationship. Of course in the Huna philosophy, relationships are not limited to the … [Read more...] about Serge King discusses the Aloha Spirit
Dreams are a source of fascination for many people. In Huna practice, we can work with dreams in many different ways. In fact, we spend so much of our life dreaming, whether that be the dreams of sleep or waking dreams, that to ignore our dreams is to ignore a considerable part of our experience. The following article was contributed by Jim Fallon who provides some of his … [Read more...] about Dream Alchemy
What is Dynamind? The Dynamind Technique, DMT, or Dynamind as it is often known, is a useful technique for addressing, physical, emotional and mental issues. The method was developed by Serge King based on extensive research and testing, all of which is detailed in his book Healing for the Millions: The Amazing Dynamind Technique. Dynamind combines a number of practices, … [Read more...] about The Dynamind Technique: A Method for Healing and Harmonising
Many years ago, I came across a little booklet which contained information which while seemingly simple was deeply profound. The booklet was the ‘Little Pink Booklet of Aloha’ written by Serge King and published by Aloha International. The message is basically to tune into Aloha - “the joyful sharing of life energy in the present” and attune with the Universal Power and … [Read more...] about The Aloha Spirit Booklet: A simple guide to the Huna power of blessing
Huna teaches how we can treat life as an adventure. The Kahili lineage of Huna entails following the 'Way of the Adventurer.' This is in contrast to the 'Way of the Warrior'. In Urban Shaman Serge King explains: "a "warrior" shaman tends to personify fear, illness or disharmony and focus on the development of power, control and combat skills in order to deal with them. An … [Read more...] about You Are The Adventurer. The Adventure Is You.
What's your story? What reality are you creating? Stories are immensely powerful. In fact, our stories have a massive impact on how we perceive the world and our lives and how others perceive us. It is therefore perhaps not surprising that shamans were often considered master story tellers, harnessing the power of story telling for illumination and empowerment. So what … [Read more...] about Heros and Adventurers: A Huna Perspective on the The Power of the Stories We Live By.
Three Wishes. Granted by a Genie... What do I want? It seems like a straightforward question that should yield a straightforward answer. However, I have found that this is often not the case. In all aspects of life including a healing or coaching context, it is a vital question, perhaps the most important question. Indeed when one is living life as an adventure it can … [Read more...] about What Do I Want? Preparing for the Genie with Three Wishes.
