Huna Philosophies

Huna is translated as “that which is hidden”. In the Hawaiian tradition a Ka Huna was a holder of secrets, for they understood that all mana (personal power) comes from within. The Ka Huna was often the Shaman or the wise one of the village who would assist their people to connect to their own life force to bring healing and insight on their journey.


This is the essence of what Sacred Huna Healings brings to the people. Karla's mission is to activate this inner knowing and mana to allow you to heal and grow into your fullness and integrate this into your everyday life.

It’s a gutsy recollection of the trauma that a paramedic can face and the extreme spiritual experiences that created Karla’s initiation into becoming a healer. In the end they require the same skills of mind and heart, a precision that is critical in both the role of a Paramedic and the role of a Shaman.
