Read this one quite a while ago, so this is going to be a "review light". I really liked this book when I first read it, and have read it at least once since. It may have been a side effect of what I was reading at the time, but it reminded me quite a bit of NLP, rather than any occult or magical tradition I am familiar with. So that makes me question the legitimacy of the "Ancient Hawaiian Tradition" aspects.But I'm an eclectic mage/witch/shaman/heathen/whatever you want to call me, so what really matters is the effectiveness of the techniques. And like NLP, the techniques are remarkably effective. Also like NLP, the results are fleeting unless you can maintain the mindfullness needed to keep aware of the techniques, and keep practicing them in daily life. That's not something I've ever been very good at.I'd be curious what others think of the link between Huna and NLP. I think I read [book: Using Your Brain for a Change] and I feel there's a connection. Also, I'm currently reading [book: The Book of Results], one of the seminal books on Chaos Magic, and I feel there's also quite a bit of overlap/sourcing there. ( )

Gets a bit flaky at times, especially on the subject of pyramids. Good on basic trancework and healing. ( )
