In Season Four of The Earth Keepers Podcast, I’m welcoming a series of thought-provoking guests like Pohala Fern Medicine founder Ke'oni Hanalei.
If you follow Ke'oni on Instagram, you have likely encountered his near daily Ferncasts where he shares the teachings and medicine of the hawaiian ferns, intertwined with the indigenous knowledge of the Hawaiian islands.
His clear transmissions and joyful nature are always a pleasure in my feed, inviting us all to deeply participate in the creation of our lives and our co-creation with this planet.
Ke’oni offers the medicine of the ferns through the medicinal oils he creates through careful harvest, distillation, extraction and ceremony.
And let me tell you, his offerings are potent and powerful.
We recorded this conversation back in mid-July, prior to the devastating wildfires on Maui, where Ke’oni lives.
He has since been a vocal and active participant in calling for the repair and restoration of Moku’ula – the original seat of energetic power in Lahaina on Maui.
This location is an incredibly important axis mundi, or energetic distributor, in the earth’s grids and the inner-earth waters, and the energy was disrupted through the colonization of the islands.
There's a link in the show notes below if you’d like to learn more about Project Moku’ula and participate in this project – I have already encoded and sent an andara crystal from my land to Maui and you can do the same.
Please enjoy my conversation with the Fern Man, Ke'oni Hanalei.
