Ki’a’i Ho’okahi Weber
Ki’a’i Ho’okahi Weber studied with Kahu Abraham Kawai’i, the creator of Kahuna Bodywork, for 16 years in Hawai’i. She became part of his family and learnt from him in the traditional style of apprenticeship. She has over 30 years experience as a Kahuna Bodywork practitioner and is a certified Master of Kahuna Bodywork (Hawai’i 2001). Kahu guided Ki’a’i Ho’okahi Weber with the foundation of the Australian College of Kahuna sciences.
The training is based on the martial-art style practice of Ka’alele’au, invented by Kahu Abraham Kawai’i. It’s a somatic movement sequence that enables the practitioner to feel and move with Ki (life force) energy. Drawing on the Hawaiian martial art of Lua and ancient Hula, Ka’alele’au is fundamental to Kahuna Bodywork, facilitating a deeper understanding of Self and our connection to all things. The training is therefore very physical, giving us increasing access to the wisdom held in our bodies so that we can then learn to ‘perform’ this wisdom on another.
The creator of Kahuna Bodywork
Kahu Abraham Kawai’i was a native-born Hawaiian Kahuna of the order of Olohe, an adept of innate perceptive ability. He was the Kahuna through whose line all Kahuna trainings in non-Hawaiian society originate. Kahuna training is not a tradition lost, although it has been in a kind of nebulous shroud for many years. In reality it has been available to people of all cultures since the late 1960’s with the Kahuna himself who modified the methods to suit contemporary western consciousness to enable anybody to understand the Source of All.
For thirty years, aside from being trained in many specific Kahuna Arts, he is also trained in ‘Kaona’ & ‘Ho’okake’, the Kahuna use of innate perceptive ability. This ability translates figurative, symbolic and literal reasoning into functional Principle, upon which all lectures, workshops and seminars at Na Pua ‘Olohe were formatted which madeit possible to cross over the perspective of time and culture without limitations.
Primarily he wanted to teach people to broaden their understanding, to stretch their conceptual boundaries, to align body movement, breath and heartbeat. Master skills areachievable by learning respect, dignity, humbleness, posture, sensitivity andby saying ‘yes’ to everything life offers whether it isgood, bad or ugly.
Kahu Abraham Kawai’i later carried the title and doctoral achievement of ‘Uliama’, and the ‘Nobel Portal of Kahuna Aua’ia’. Kahu guidedKi’a’i with the foundation of the Australian College of Kahuna sciences. Taking the ancient principles and adapting them to fit within the western world.
When he left this realm in 2004, his knowledge and teachings were passed on with upmost authenticity and respect by Ki’a’i Ho’okahi Weber in Australia and for some years also by Isabell Dzananovic in Austria.
