The Importance Of Ceremony With Ke'oni Hanalei


As soon as you start talking to Ke’oni in any depth you are greeted with wisdom that spans both backwards, into a rich lineage of ancestry, and forwards, into a time and space when we as humans are evolved and living as the highest expression of who we are. This time bridger quality is something I recognise in myself, and in a large number of people that I work with who are here with a message, a soul purpose and an expression that is rooted in the expansion of humanity.

Ke’oni is the founder of Pohala which is a Hawaiian company dedicated to all things Fern Medicine, from oils, to potions, to mists, to teas. He is passionate and fully invested in essences that Ferns have to share with us for emotional healing, alignment and transcendence.

In this truly expansive conversation we speak about ceremony, both as it was taught to Ke’oni by his grandmother, who was a Medicine woman and healer, and also how it translates into our modern day to day living as a quality of presence, that is right here and right now, not preoccupied with the occurrences of the past or the projections of the future.
