LEI’OHU RYDER & MAYDEEN ‘IAO, are native emissaries of aloha and advocates for the indigenous soul in all people. Their love and knowledge of Na Mea Hawaii, help us connect with our selves, with spirit, and be pono (balanced in right alignment). They are native wisdom keepers who travel the world sharing ancient Hawaiian teachings, songs, hula, and the practice of Ho’oponopono (a process to make things right and restore harmony).
Lei’ohu Ryder is a revered Hawaiian spiritual leader, visionary, healer, singer/songwriter, and educator. She has received the Gandhi-King Peace Hero Award, the Peace Educator Award from the United Nations, the Woman of Honor award from Women’s History Month, the Educator Award from the Peace Corps, and the Malama Ka’Aina Award from the Sierra Club. She has shared her gifts all around the world including the South Pacific, Japan, Israel, India, and most of Europe.
In 1995, Lei’ohu rediscovered a heiau (Hawaiian temple) in Kahakuloa, Maui. Under her guidance and inspiration, many hands have worked to reawaken the mana (divine power) of Kukuipuka heiau, and it is once again a place of healing, cultural sharing, and world prayers. LEI’OHU RYDER & MAYDEEN ‘IAO are in Asheville on 10 June 2017.
