My Journey

Kahu and Tutu Pele

At least once a year, we pay our respects to Tutu Pele near the Pu’u O’o vent at the Halema’uma’u Crater on Hawaii Island. We bring ho’okupu (offerings) of lei, oli, mele, mea’ai, and mea inu.  We bring nothing back with us except our experiences, stories and memories of our much needed Divine reunion.  While always so sad to leave her, our bond remains strong and her consciousness lives deeply within our hearts.  Until we meet again!

Lei Laʻi


Lei are such an important and special gift to present to others here in Hawaiʻi.
I enjoy creating my own lei laʻi from ti leaf that is picked from my garden.
The creation is very meditative for me….
The result is a labor and gift of love.
