Susan Pa'iniu Floyd
Susan has been teaching Huna and Hawaiian Shamanism since 1987. When she first applied the principles of Huna taught to her in 1986 by Serge Kahili King , great changes in her health and happiness occured. Because of those changes, she left her accounting profession later in 1986 and moved to Kauai to work with Serge and become an Alakai of Aloha International. Some things are just too good to keep to one's self!
At the same time she was drawn by spirit to receive and eventually study the Lomi-Lomi massage of Kahu (Abraham) Aua'ia Maka'i'ole Kawaii. This helped her process of transformation to speed up and planted "lomi" seeds which, five years later, really started to grow. She developed the Kino Mana courses to blend the study and application of the Huna philosophy with the study and application of Hawaiian massage into one fun-filled class.
Spiritual Hula "happened" into her life as a third element which was a joyful way to apply these principles. Her first teachers were Kalena Mande and Willie Pulawa on Kauai, then the master of Hula, "Uncle" George Naope from Kona and for the last eight years, when his work brought him to Kauai, the inspirational songs, chanting and dance of Kawaikapuokalani Hewett. When you are feeling sad, sick or just low on energy, try Hula and watch the world shift inside and out!
Currently Susan is the Assistant Executive Director of Aloha International. She teaches Huna, Kino Mana and Advanced Kino Mana on Kauai, in Europe, and in Japan; leads the Halau Hula Na Lei Kupua o Kaua'i; and coordinates Hula Intensives taught by Kawaikapuokalani Hewett.
