Welcome to the Australian College of Kahuna Sciences Accredited Bodywork Courses.

The style of Kahuna Bodywork the Australian College of Kahuna Sciences teaches is based on the Kahuna Principles as taught by (Kahu) Abraham Kawai’i, Kahuna (Kanaka Maoli).

The Australian College of Kahuna Sciences’ accreditations provide a benchmark for professionalism in Kahuna Bodywork Training, a benchmark for Kahuna Bodywork as a massage therapy and modality in the Western World.

Kahuna Bodywork is often mistakenly called Kahuna massage or lomi lomi, and it does incorporate elements of massage and lomi. Kahuna Bodywork is essentially much more as it requires expanded understanding through Kahuna training.

Our accredited courses extending to Advanced Diploma level were developed under the guidance of the Kahuna, maintaining the Kahuna style of training, incorporating the Family Principle while complying with Australian Qualification Standards. There is no other authentic and accredited Kahuna Bodywork course.

The College offers personal development courses and workshops and 4 recognised Kahuna Sciences Qualifications.

Flexible delivery may incorporate a variety of methods, including e-learning, home studies, face to face classes and workshops, and group work.

This flexible structure allows students to take an active and constructive role in their own learning.

Kahuna Bodywork comes from Hawaii, but by Principle does not teach something Hawaiian. Instead it teaches people to access their own inherited genetic wisdom, their own genealogy. It provides pathway access to physically, mentally or spiritually unexplored areas within the Self. The result of these explorations is multilevel and can be subtle or foundationally life changing, for both the giver and the receiver.

Everybody seeking accelerated personal development and insight via the ancient pathway of Kahuna exercises is welcome to enrol for the live-in workshop retreats conducted by the college. The workshops are popular with people looking for 'more success, less effort' in their lives. If no qualification in Kahuna Bodywork is desired one can still walk away with a greater understanding of one's Self and one's place in this Universe, empowered, revitalised and more aligned, flexible and fit, with a greater capacity to face all life situations.

A Kahuna Bodyworker is always in training, regardless of certificate level or level of personal and professional achievement. There is always more.

Foundation to Kahuna Bodywork Training are the Kahuna Exercises (Ka’alele au) and preparations as developed by (Kahu) Abraham Kawai’i, Kahuna.

Students practice Ka’alele au, which are precise variables of martial art style ancient hula sequences, for many hours and days before Kahuna Bodywork and massage training commences.

Ka’alele au, with its controlled and focused movements conducted at various speeds, looks similar to Tai Chi Chuan and is an ancient spiritual dance/movement - the art of non verbal communication with all things.

Ka’alele au is designed to coax the Western psyche into the practical understanding of connectedness to all things, of fluidity in motion, of presence, dignity, focal point application, leverage, and positioning, non-intent and of observer participation.

In Australia, the traditional foundational Ka'alele au performance is part of all nationally recognised Kahuna Bodywork qualifications.

History of the Australian College of Kahuna Sciences

The College commenced teaching in 1992, when Ki’a’i Weber gained permission by (Kahu) Abraham Kawai’i to teach Ka’alele au, the foundational Kahuna Exercises.
The Australian College of Applied Kahuna Principles was created.

Kahu started teaching Kahuna Principles and the bodywork all over the world in the late 1960s. The training of non Hawaiian people was still in its early evolution and constantly being adapted to the Western psyche and interpretation of Ancient Principles.

Ki’a’i Ho’okahi Weber, after many years of training in Hawaii, with all her immediate family members also accepted as students into the Kahuna’s house, became the First Kahuna Bodywork instructor with Masters Certification by Na Pua ‘Olohe, the First Guardian of the Clan, Ki’a’i.

The college name was changed to Australian College of Kahuna Sciences, incorporating Kahuna Sciences (namely Huli Honua, Kuhikuhipueoneone, Ho’omanamana, Hui Kalo ‘O Ku, Mai Pono, ‘Oluli, Ke Ala Hoku, Mo’oko Manao) in the training and performance of Kahuna Bodywork.

Kahuna Sciences have many applications, and a student will over time incorporate these naturally in all life, work and family situations.

Kahuna Sciences Bodywork became a highly dignified modality, with its evolution promoting effects reaching far beyond the therapeutic.

The next step was to develop a Kahuna Sciences course for accreditation in Australia.

Kahu gave his expertise, knowledge and experience of decades of teaching and Ki’a’i incorporated these into courses of study according to the standards of the Australian Qualifications Framework.

This challenging task, to maintain the original training while complying with Australian standards, could not have been finished without the encouragement and aid of Ki’a’i’s family, the Weber Clan.

2004: Certificate III in Kahuna Sciences to Diploma of Kahuna Sciences are accredited and nationally recognised qualifications.

2005: The Australian College of Kahuna Sciences gained RTO status (RTO: Registered Training Organisation) with the NTIS number 31263.

2006: The college was registered on CRICOS, the Commonwealth Register of Institutions and Courses for Overseas Students. CRICOS code: 02787K.

2006: The college added to its scope and is teaching Cert IV in Massage and Diploma of Remedial Massage.

2007: Kahuna Bodywork courses are upgraded and reaccredited. New are the Certificate IV in Kahuna Bodywork, Diploma of Kahuna Bodywork and Advanced Diploma of Kahuna Sciences.
The college is now delivering highest standard training towards six nationally recognised qualifications.

This is the history of the college up to now.

Apart from delivering training in Kahuna Sciences, the college is committed to future research to bring Kahuna Bodywork to the consciousness of the medical community, as a healing modality using a ‘backdoor’ approach via the physical body, bypassing the subconscious guardians that may have patterned the body, the mind, and the spirit.
