Nā Pua ‘Olohe (The Flowers of Wisdom) is a personal transformation and training organization that provides workshop and seminar instruction in Ancient Hawaiian kahuna principles. Nā Pua ‘Olohe was founded by Kahu Abraham Kawai‘i, kahuna, for the promotion and teaching of kahuna sciences as developed by him for Western culture.
In your life there are only answers; the questions you may have are merely a way for you to continually rediscover life.
– Kahu Abraham Kawai‘i, 1996
Students of Nā Pua ‘Olohe travel from all over the world. They include people from all walks of life and diverse professional backgrounds. They are alike only in their desire to change and refine their lives.
The teachers of Nā Pua ‘Olohe have been trained by Kahu Abraham Kawai‘i in the kahuna use of innate perceptive ability. It is this ability that lets us translate figurative, symbolic and literal reasoning into the functioning principles upon which all of our lectures, workshops and seminars are formatted. This ability makes it possible to cross over cultural perspectives, and lets us assist students from across the world to comprehend and apply the kahuna principles in their own lives.
Each Nā Pua ‘Olohe workshop is unique. The individual participants, the location, and the focus of the group meld together to create an experience that provides maximum movement and evolution within each participant. Materials, lectures, and class experiences grow up around the needs and questions of the students, creating an entirely interactive workshop. Because of this, no two workshops are ever the same.
As Kahu Abraham Kawai‘i’s student and wife for 18 years, Hoʻokahi Tamara runs Nā Pua ʻOlohe and its trainings. Born in Curitiba, Brazil, she moved as a teen to Minnesota, USA. This transition sparked her interest in the interaction between cultures and stimulated her to look beyond her own cultural background for self-fulfillment. She joined Kahu Abraham in Hawaiʻi in 1986, and lived with him until his passing.
Hoʻokahi Tamara possesses the ʻeke, a kahuna ancestral container of wisdom, knowledge and spiritual achievement received from the family of kahuna elders for her accomplishments. She continues to teach the principles that Abraham taught to students around the world.
