Huna Workshop

huna logo red.png

Affirmation, positive thinking, stress management – sounds nice, but are you truly able to put it into practice? Have you experienced that these ideas don’t seem to work as planned, or there tend to be obstacles preventing you from achieving your goal? You say to yourself, “But I can’t…” or “It’s not my fault that…” or “They made me do it.” I can completely relate to this!


I would love to share with you a pearl of wisdom called Huna. In this Introduction to Huna workshop – an experiential and hands-on workshop – you will learn to let go of obstacles, gain a deeper understanding of who you are, and find guidance in enhancing and adding to the successes you already enjoy.


I’m excited and honored to have Kumu Karen from Hilo, Hawai`i, teach us these learnings in Seattle and Vancouver this October. Take a break from your bustling, busy everyday life, and treat yourself to a weekend that will let your potential shine and guide you to the new you.


Looking forward to seeing you!

Kumu of Hālau Ho`omanaloa (School of Energetic Empowerment) in Kona, Hawai`i.



Huna is the modern Western label given to the ancient healing and spiritual shamanism of ancient Hawai`i. The teachings have been passed down through particular family lineages, and were once secret and carefully guarded – but today, some families teach Huna openly. Huna is sometimes associated with neuro-linguistic programming (NLP) or hypnosis, but it is distinctly different from these practices. Instead, Huna is a way of thinking, doing, and being, with processes and techniques that can assist you in your personal, professional, and spiritual growth and development.


The school’s Huna lineage, Hālau Ho`omanaloa (School of Energetic Empowerment) in Kona, Hawai`i, descends from the Bray and James families, with significant influence from Uncle George Na`ope, Kumu John Ka`imikaua, and Aunty Bernie (Na`ope) Konanui. Our current teachers are Kumu/Dr. Matthew James and Kumu Etua Lopes.  This is an unbroken Huna lineage of 28 generations.

Huna is Karen’s chosen way of life. Born and raised on Hawai`i Island, Karen Moriuchi was initially raised as a Southern Baptist. At age fifteen, she began to search for other teachings, and eventually found Huna more than 10 years ago. Huna has led her to major life improvements around her family, relationships, and career. She continues to choose Huna for ongoing improvements in personal growth and development, health and fitness, and spirituality.


Professionally, Karen is a Certified and Registered Occupational Therapist. Besides the traditional rehabilitation methods, she has added Huna and other techniques to her practice. She is now retired but continues to see private clients. Karen also received training in neuro-linguistic programming (NLP), hypnotherapy, and Mental and Emotional Release (MER®) techniques.



“The information in this workshop and the tools to access it provide concrete practices to grow into the person we desire to become, with ourselves and with others.” – LL


“It was beneficial in the way I expected – feeling the power of the energy flowing while doing forgiveness work and symbol work. It was also beneficial in the unexpected way of meeting wonderful people with similar mindsets and interests. I have used the Huna symbols to add protection and to my property and workspace, and I have felt uplifted the whole week since the workshop.” – LCL


“This workshop caught me by surprise in that I was so quickly drawn in. All of the instructors were so informal, kind, knowledgeable, and supportive.” – RD
