Live Aloha and Pono with a Solid and Unshakeable Spiritual Foundation
We teach practitioners how to become true healers rooted in Hawaiian teachings ready to serve others.
Become the powerful healer and teacher that the world so desperately needs
Live in Alignment with Aloha and Pono
You want to feel more centered, joyful and light-hearted. Filled with love, and patience. You want to feel connected to the Higher Being or Ke Akua, your ancestors, your family, and your land.
A firm and solid Hawaiian Spiritual Foundation
You want to have a great understanding of the healing traditions, the culture, and the history of the Hawaiian people. You want to discern what are fake Hawaiian Teachings, such as fauxʻoponopono, who are fake teachers, and who is the real deal.
A powerful and educated true Practitioner
You want to be recognized as a Hawaiian healer because you know the right protocols. You want to be associated with Hawaiian teachers and healers. You want to be ready to serve people in need, you trust yourself completely and you know youʻre genuinely connected.
Are You Looking For The Essence of Aloha?
You’re a practitioner who has done lomilomi or hula for more than 5 years and youʻre still looking for the missing piece, the "Z”, the essence of Aloha that no teacher seemed to be able to share with you so far.
You feel embarrassed and guilty for not knowing much about the Hawaiian culture.
Youʻre afraid of being disrespectful to the Hawaiian People doing Hawaiian massage or hula.
You doubt if you have a clear connection with Spirit (or Higher Being) and your ancestors.
You wonder what a traditional teacher from Hawaiʻi would share about lomilomi and hula compared to your previous non-Hawaiian teacher who may have mixed his or her teachings with new-age or other indigenous cultures.
What our Members Say
"I found my way back home"
“Mahalo nui Kyrian, I am so thankful for you and Kumu Being not just in my life but in so many other people's lives and sharing aloha across the globe and you know that the teachings that you’re giving us far exceed the aloha that I know is in your hearts and that’s what I thought about today and all the Kupunas and ancestors that are here and have come and gone They have shared that same aloha and for helping me find my way back home I don’t think there are enough thank you’s for that”
~ Kapi'o Y., KS
“I am in gratitude and awe for what you teach."
"The pieces have been floating around and are falling into place. The truth was always there. Before it was all about me, my healing and my journey. I wanted everyone to know what had happened to me. I held onto my victim-mentality hard because it enabled me to continue on my path of self-destruction because “I” had been wronged by so many. Now I know I am here to serve, to love, to show people that you must love all you meet to truly heal because we are one. I am ready for what’s next and say mahalo nui loa to you, your lineage, Kyrian and above all Ke Akua and the ancestors. Aloha e and mahalo big time.”
~ Alicia H., WA
"It offers you a chance to gain deep inner growth"
“Kumu Pa'a Lawrence's teachings are very inspiring on many levels. The way he teaches is so deep and intensive, unique to anything or anyone I know off. Kumu Pa'a Lawrence`s Halau (school) is full of love, kindness and happiness. It is a big privilege to spend time with all those beautiful people. Listening to the stories which have been shared and "just going with the flow" is an unforgettable, life-changing experience. It offers you a chance to gain deep inner growth. If you are open to it, it can put you on the way to happiness and understanding. But you need to be ready. If you are, anything is possible on Molokai.”
~ Christine D., Switzerland

Kumu Paʻa Nui Lawrence Kalainia Kamani Aki, 50th Generation of Halawa Valley, Molokai Lineage of Traditional 'Ike (Knowledge)
My journey of studying with him started at a workshop in Amsterdam in 2010. I became a hāumana (student) and ʻuniki (graduated) on October 31st, 2020.
“It's for the first time I've chosen to ʻuniki a non-Hawaiian, who I've found having learned well, including the ʻōlelo Hawaiʻi, the Hawaiian Language, and has embraced the teachings of our lineage.” ~ Kumu Paʻa Nui Lawrence Kalainia Kamani Aki 50th generation of Halawa Valley, Molokai lineage of traditional ʻike (knowledge).
The Valley of Halawa on the island of Molokai, Hawaiʻi
Halawa Valley, Molokai is the place where our ancestors lived and thrived. It represents our connection to the past, present, and future. It is the origin of the teachings that we preserve.
Kumu Paʻa Nui Lawrence Kalainia Kamani Aki was born and raised by his grandparents in Halawa Valley, a very remote valley on the island of Molokai where the Hawaiian language was still spoken when he grew up.
His first teacher was his maternal grandmother Bernice Kawailani Nahoopii, accompanied by a great many grandaunts and granduncles.
49th Generation ʻAnakala Pilipo Solatorio
Kumu Hula ʻAnakala Pilipo Solatorio is the still living much-treasured blood-uncle of Kumu Paʻa Nui Lawrence Kalainia Kamani Aki. He taught his nephew many chants, hula, many stories, and the history of Halawa and Molokai in an oral fashion from age 9.
“I never wanted to be a teacher, I never wanted the headache and the disappointments. Until my Kumu, ʻAnakala Pilipo instructed me to hānai (adopt) my first student in 2006 who is now a kumu himself: Kumu Paʻa Kawika Foster." - Kumu Paʻa Nui Lawrence Kalainia Kamani Aki, 50th generation of Halawa Valley, Molokai of traditional 'ike (knowledge).
Since then weʻve shared the teachings of our ancestors to thousands of students in international and local workshops, retreats, and Zoom classes to help students become strong spiritually and live the sacred teachings of Aloha in this stressed world full of distractions.
Weʻre not looking for students, weʻre looking for teachers. Because what the world needs right now are good teachers.
