Synopses & Reviews
Reality is experience, and experience is reality,” says Hawaiian shaman Serge King, speaking of Huna, the esoteric tradition in which he was reared.King emphasizes that all of us have the ability to shift from one world to another. The difference is that shamans do it purposefully, while the rest of us are unaware of it. He trains us to engage in the process consciously in order to expand our human potential. Among books on Huna, this one is unique for offering actual practices for changing our reality to create the life we want.
In a user-friendly, conversational style, Kings chapters explain the four worlds of a shaman and basic Huna principles. Then, citing case studies, he guides us in how to change reality in each of the four worlds, bringing in ESP, telepathy, the perception of auras, telekinesis, dreaming, magical flight, and, finally, soul retrieval and the great power of healing.
It sounds simple,” says King, and it is. The most difficult part is to accept the simplicity, because that means changing one's idea about what reality is. And that's what this book is all about.”
"'The world is what you think it is.' So author Serge Kahili King describes the core principle of Huna. King grew up learning Huna shamanism and later studied African shamanism as well. A doctorate in psychology completed the skill set that makes him the leading author and teacher of Hawaiian shamanic tradition. He writes clearly and directly about this ancient, esoteric wisdom in Changing Reality

Becca Chopra, journalist, yoga and meditation instructor and author of The Chakra Diaries
King shows us, in this truly fascinating and compelling book, how to begin to re-claim our ancient birthright. Leaving us no doubt, through his accessible, lucid prose, that he walks his talk, this teacher of magic does not mystify, nor try to awe us. He illustrates, step by step, how we all have forgotten our magical natures, in bad habits of thinking and perceiving, and selling reality short--of the living, breathing epiphany that has always been available to us.”
