Publisher Comments:

An extensive study of ancient Hawaiian spirituality


•One of the first books to discuss the shamanistic aspects of the hula dance and the sacred sexuality of Hawaii


•Explores little known aspects of Hawaiian tradition such as lunar astrology and the spiritual powers in Hawaiian language and place names


Beneath the postcard images of paradise that depict Hawaii, anthropologist Rima Morrell found a secret and sophisticated spiritual tradition that few of its many visitors ever get to see. Far from being lost within the “civilizing”influences of the last few centuries, Hawaii’s indigenous traditions merely went into hiding as its people refused to volunteer information about themselves to any but the most sincere seekers. Building on the work of such early researchers as Max Freedom Long, Rima Morrell reveals knowledge about this tradition than has not been previously available—such as the role of emotion in gaining true wisdom, the shamanic aspects of the hula, the magical elements of Hawaiian language, and a sophisticated system of lunar astrology—but also shows how the principles of a society woven with love can help shape our own lives.

The system of ancient Hawaiian wisdom known as Huna teaches us how to focus the light of our own being to make magic. Many Hawaiians believe that light is knowledge in a pure state and that magic is the very fabric of life. When she first visited the islands Morrell found a lighter, brighter world, where trees talked to her in ancient temples and magic regularly happened. Following her Higher Self—and overcoming resistance to its rainbow guidance—she discovered we are each responsible for our own power and through practicing Huna, we can create our own reality and become magicians and navigators of our own soul.

Synopsis:

When Rima Morrell first went to Hawai‘i as a young anthropology student from Cambridge University, she was surprised to find a lighter brighter world where trees talked to her in ancient temples and magic regularly happened. She found the system of ancient Hawaiian wisdom known as Huna, a system that teaches us how to focus the light of our own being to make magic. Following her Higher Self--and overcoming resistance to its rainbow guidance--she discovered we are each responsible for our own power. Through practicing Huna, we can consciously create our own reality, for we are each the navigator of our own soul canoe.

Following her years in the islands, and Ph.D. in Huna, Rima reveals new knowledge about this sacred tradition. Citing the work of earlier researchers such as Max Freedom Long, as well as native kahuna, Rima reveals knowledge about Huna that has not previously been available: the role of emotion in gaining true wisdom, the magical elements of Hawaiian language, the sophisticated system of lunar astrology, and the hula as a system of shamanism. Rima also shows how the principles of a society woven with love can shape our own lives.
