I became a Riki master back in the 90's' while I was living on the Hawaiian island of Maui. At the time I was also learning about the use of the native American sacrament of peyote from many Native American teachers including Kingfisher, A Cheyanne Hatanowa (shaman). Also, Ken Little fish (an Anishinabe elder and Medicine Man), Rome (a Tarahumara elder and Curandero from Northern Mexico) Boydd White (Dine' elder and Medicine Man).All of these teachings fused together for Me over the next decade of living on the islands. I quickly advanced thru My Reiki attunements and had done much advanced work after Peyote ceremonies that were happening on a weekly basis during the months of August thru May, while the Native American elders were on the islands. During the summer months, and rainy season, I was taught the use of Mushroom magic by an elder named Joell, a Hawaiian KaHuna living on Maui. He also taught me the Secrets of Ho'oponopono, Hu'ala Huna & Ka Hana Pono. Living in Hawai'i, the center of the ring of fire, allowed me to gain teachings from both the east and the west. I traveled to Kaua'i for a weekend Peyote ceremony with other elders and was asked to stay and help out with ceremonies. I ended up living there for almost two years before returning to Mau'i. While on Kaua'i I was taken under the wings of the islands Kahunas, first was Makani (Wind) who taught me the sacredness of the island itself. Then I was introduced to Lono, and His Mother Elona. They both taught me even deeper meanings of the islands and whom I was becoming. They invited me to stay on their ancestral homeland and learn about sacred agriculture with aspects of Ho'oponopono, Hu'ala Huna & Ka Hana Pono. They brought me into the order and I was ordained "Mo'o Kahuna" (lizard priest or Dragon as of old). I was told by a few of my elder teachers that "you don't really have anything to say until your 50', so letting my knowledge and experiences set in over the last 25 yrs. of being a student of the divine, I was told by the Spirits that it is time to share the knowledge..
