0206: Meet Harry Uhane Jim, Hawaiian Kahuna, Lomilomi Giver, & Author


Harry Uhane Jim Lomilomi Giver and Author

Harry Uhane Jim – Lomilomi Giver, Healer, Author

Two weeks ago today, I had the honor of interviewing renowned Lomilomi giver, healer, teacher, and author Harry Uhane Jim.

It was an interview that I’d been looking forward to for a long time. Last week, I edited it, equalized the audio, recorded the intro, made the show notes, and did all of the other steps that result in an episode that is up to the level of quality you’ve come to expect from me.

Since then, the Puna District on the southeastern edge of Hawaii Island, near where Harry used to live, has experienced unprecedented volcanic eruptions right in the middle of residential areas, plus hundreds of small (and one very large) earthquake. As of this publication, thousands are under mandatory evacuation notice, and the future is still uncertain. No one knows when these eruptions will end or when the new volcanic vents will stop oozing deadly fumes.

So as you listen to this interview, please send love/light, prayers, or whatever kind of positivity that resonates with you to the thousands of residents displaced on Hawaii Island. And if you happen to be on Hawaii as you listen to this episode, I hope that Harry’s words in this interview provide some comfort in these trying times. Harry’s healing energy is perfect for a time like now.

I was first exposed to Harry’s work through his book Wise Secrets of Aloha, where he shares some secrets of the oral tradition of Hawaiian healing.

In short, Harry is a remarkable storyteller and healer, and if you are at all interested in the Hawaiian Islands, you will be fascinated by what he has to say in this interview, from the secrets of the ancient walls of Pu’uhonua o Hōnaunau (the ruins of which are now preserved as a national park), to the immediacy of the potent healing practice of Ho’oponopono.

By the end of the interview, we even learn a Hawaiian Chant! There’s a lot packed into these 59 minutes, and I’m so excited to share it with you.

Talking to Harry was an honor, and it was easily one of the most enjoyable and profound interviews I’ve ever conducted. I want to extend a huge MAHALO NUI once again to Harry for sharing some of his morning with us! I can’t wait to see you again, my friend.

I am so excited to share a new episode of Aravinda Show.

And in this interview, we explore the power of what we eat, Megan’s journey of healing her body, from being bedridden to having a vibrant life on the Big Island of Hawaii, and so much more.

This was definitely one of the most enjoyable (and hilarious) interviews that I’ve ever done, and I want to extend a huge thanks to Megan once again: Thank you for being generous with your time and sharing so much with us!
