Raylene Ha`alelea Kawaiae`a is a long time teacher of Hawaiian way of life, has been a kumu (teacher) hula for over 30 years. She teaches hula and Hawaiian culture as a way of life to people of all ages and ethnic backgrounds. Her lineage has brought her an understanding of the traditions of her heritage.
A practitioner and haku (master) of Ho`oponopono, a spiritual practice to restore and maintain good relationships between the Divine, humankind and nature, she comes forth to assist and to be of service to those in need of her skills. Raylene combines her gentle nature with a deep connection to the land and the Spirit of Hawaii to offer deep insight into the mysteries of life.
I met Raylene after a class she taught at the International Herb Symposium. Her insights and culture have much to offer the herbal community. She was also featured in the film, Numen: The Nature of Plants.
