WELLNESS

CLEAR LIGHT LIFE: HEALTH & WELLNESS

 

As a Natural Health Practitioner and Master Herbalist, I offer safe, effective, plant-based resources to support your health.  The healing environment of the Garden Isle of Kaua’i can assist you on your path to freedom from disease and bring clarity to aspects of life physically and mentally.  LIVE THE CLEAR LIGHT LIFE!

 

Living close to the nature is a part of my everyday life. The forest has shared the many healing gifts I am aware of today. Medicine grows at our feet and I feel responsible to share the knowledge of what can help us. Herbs, plants, flowers, and spices grow everywhere, and it is wise to tap into this ancient knowledge.  Life on a remote isolated island has made me aware of the absolute need to be self-reliant regarding my health and the health of others. Fortunately, native healing plants grow abound as well as invasive and medicinal plants! I am bridging the gap between ancient Ayurvedic Medicine, Traditional Chinese Medicine, and Hawaiian La `au Lapa ‘au. Herbs from the West like the Americas and Europe grow here too. It is an honor to grow practically anything and everything on this tiny rock, and help others alleviate their suffering.

 

I am here to share my mana`o or knowledge on herbal medicine. I am here to serve others and believe that the healthier one is, the happier one is, and therefore supreme peace can be obtained. Seeing others find the answer to their needs all within their own backyard is a liberating experience. I wish to teach people how to grow their own medicine and how to utilize it for their own needs.

 

I am here to help you prevent disease through education and the promotion of healthy ways of living. I will encourage you toward independence and self-direction by enforcing positive behavior patterns!

BLOG

Kalalau valley is a sacred remote isolated place 11 miles from any town. Once you hike in or arrive by water, you instantly feel you truly have ARRIVED. Where have you arrived? Easily the most beautiful and magical place on the planet.  Getting here could be a rewarding challenge in itself.  The trail is along the side of a cliff, going up and down, in valleys and across rivers.  For a beginner it takes 8 plus hours or two days, and has been considered one of the most dangerous hikes on earth.

 

For a long term resident like me, it takes about 5 hours barefoot walking joyfully along the scenic trail.  I carry superfoods to fuel me, and drink the fresh pure spring water as I go.  From the start of the trail, the forest is wet, muddy, and full of tourists. The breathtaking views of the Na Pali coast inspire you to keep going further.  Once you get to the first river crossing 2 miles in, Hanakapi`ai, as long as you are able to safely cross, the tourists get left behind.  Only the real adventurers, yogis, and hard core travelers keep on going.

 

After a nice dip in the fresh river, or a swim catching wave session, it is time to move on up. The next mile is up and traversing the side of a mountain.  Once you make it to the end of this mile, you are at Space Rock. This is the steepest vertical drop into the ocean. It is incredibly beautiful, and a lovely place for a snack and just to breathe deeply. Pranayama here will make you feel like you are flying, like a real dakini… a sky dancer.  The view to the right is towards Ke`e where the trail begins, and to the left, what is still to come.

 

Leaving Space rock, or the 3 mile point, you head down into the next valley.  It is full of native plants that are rare.  The ancient trail continues to guide you deeper and deeper into the depths of the ancient forest of the Na Pali Coast.  Then comes Wai`ahu`akua, The Cape of the Gods, or the 5 mile point.  There are rock terraces, timeless walls as far as you can see, going up into the valley, and all the way down.  Springs and a lovely river bless you in here. If you time it right, the native mountain apples may be flowering.  Instead of just black rock or pohaku walls, the hot pink petals of the tree fall off and create a hot pink terrain.  This valley with its forest of mountain apples creates a natural pink phenomena unlike any other.  Your eyes experience a major contrast of tropical greens all day, and then WHAM, hot pink in your face.

 

After receiving magical blessings, it is time to continue walking, chanting, and using your mala. Half way there, at Hanakoa Valley, 6 miles in, things start to change…
