Book Review: Hawaiian Spirituality Book 1: The Hawaiian Understanding of Wellbeing. From one of the oldest, continuous teaching Lineages in Hawaii, Kumu Lawrence gets straight to the point about Hawaiian Spirituality. He takes you directly into the heart of more that 50 Generations of Ancestral Wisdom without all the "fluff" that often accompanies writings about Hawaiian Spirituality. In fact, Kumu is famous for saying "I don't fluff, I get straight to the point and tell you the truth..."
If you want to get to the truth about Hawaiian Spirituality and receive trustworthy spiritual guidance, you will find it here from one of Molokai's most esteemed teachers and authorities on Hawaiian Culture and History.

Whether you have a wandering spirit or are ready for a full-blown immersion , the mini-series is an expedition into the Spiritual Teachings of Ancient Hawaii.
