Huna is ancient and at the same time magnificently modern.The mystical practice of Kahuna evolved in isolation on the island paradise of Hawaii. The ancient Hawaiians valued words, prayer, their gods, the sacred, the breath, a loving spirit, family ties, the elements of nature, and mana-the vital life force-ideas profound yet elegantly simple. Discovering the concepts of Huna is like finding gemstones in a mountain-a joyous journey!

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
In this third book of the publisher's "Fundamentals" series, Santa Fe-based Huna scholar Berney approaches a subject almost entirely disregarded in modern writings for a general audience: Hawaiian religion and spirituality. Huna spirituality, as Berney seems to understand it, can be a little difficult to differentiate from the New Age practices of the newer religions and meditation styles, and some may be frustrated by her rather general and nonscholarly approach, but it may be valuable for many libraries to have a first book on this little-known subject. For larger collections strong in spirituality. Copyright 2000 Cahners Business Information.\
