Good Evening Two Bears...

Thank You for making this resource available for all to read...What I have read thus far resonates...

My question is a simple one have you come across the above website and its author called Tad James...?

I have read quite alot of the content on that website and its quite interesting to say the least...

And I agree with what you said about Huna in one of the threads I read...Its simpler than some traditions....

PS this is a link to the first chapter of his book-What are your thoughts...?

Regards Maha

My pleasure. You might like to read my blog at Yahoo 360 (the URL for that is in the updates folder). After you get to my blog click on the pule me mana tag, and my blog will coalate all of the blog entries with thet tag.

Yes; and to be honest I don;t think much of his writings. Check the bibliography, and you will see that I rate Mr. James as one of the worst huna authors.

My problems with Mr. James is on many fronts. He mixes Hawai'ian mysticism with Qigong, Wicca, New Age material, and information that is wrong.

Hawai'ian mysticism is so simple a five year old child can understand it.

My pleasure to be of service.

Here is some of the stuff wrong on the URL you mentioned.

-----
The days of The Order of Kane had come to an end. The soldiers of Pa'ao had arrived,
  -
Pa'ao was a Tahitian priest that had murdered his nephew around 1200 years ago and fled to Hawai'i to keep frm being killed. It was Pa'ao that instituted the worship of god Kuka'ilimoku (God of War) and set up the kapu system.

rose in the morning, the Pohaku O Kane (the stone images of the One God who had created
  -
Kane was not the ONE god. I'O or E'O is the ONE god. Kane (pronounced kahnee)is only the god of physical creation. FYI I have a similar stone altar to Kane sitting in my window sill.

AN ANCIENT SCIENCE: The science that is now called Huna is a very old science. We believe that it may be as old as 35,000 years old,
  -
Allan P. Lewis documented this path goes back 14,000 years, not the 35,000 years Mr. James claims.

There is much more wrong with the material; but this is enough to demonstrate the fact there are errors.

I didn't read the book, only skimmed that chapter.

He claims:
"The balanced Male/Female system in western Europe was called Wicca, and like Huna it was attempted to wipe this teaching out."

That's not true. Wicca was invented by Gardner in 20th century. Well...it might trace its roots back to ancient systems, but they were not called Wicca, and there is no continuity.

Tad James is, first of all, a good businessman. I might be completely wrong, but given my impression from what I have read or how I understood hints from some people I trust, about him and his activities in areas of NLP hypnosis and Huna, I have chosen not to get into any of "his stuff". Even if it is powerful.

I read that chapter, and I read the complete book "The Lost Secrets of Huna Volume 1" years ago.

Gerald Brouseau Gardner invented Wicca AFTER the anti-witchcraft laws were over turned in 1949. If memory serves; his first book was published in 1951.

Mr. Gardner has been a Mason, then he worked as a civil servant in India, and there he learned the mental mysticism of the Yogis. After Mr. Gardner retired and returned to England; he was initiated into a coven of witches by Dorothy Clutterbuck.

Wicca is a a composite religion that blends the three older philosophies Masonic ritual, mental mysticsm, AND European witchcraft.

Several years ago I gave two workshops on Huna north of Toronto, Ontario Canada, and a lady I will call Sandra called my friend that was hosting the workshop, and said she would not be attending the workshop but would like to talk to us about what would be taught at the workshop. Michelle invited her to come over.

Sandra came over from Orillia, Ontario, a few minutes later, and Michelle set out some grapes, Cheese, and other snacks for the three of us.

The first words out of her mouth was "Have You heard of Tad James" I said yes; I have heard of Tad James, and have read one of his books on huna, but I don;t care for it because he takes huna, and mizes it with Qigong, Wicca, NLP, and anything else he can think of.

Then I went on to tell her that what I teach primarily comes hrough the writings of Dr. Clark Wilkerson, and Allan P. Lewis (the only two huna authors ever to study with a living kahuna, and a lot of personal experiences.)

After saying this; Sandra relaxed noticably, and asked my opinion of Max Freedom Long. I told her that I believed MFL to be a very sincere researcher; but because he was working with a terribly flawed Hawai'ian translation of the bible, and working with a hawai'ian dictionary that was 70 years out of date that he made some mistakes.

Sandra then told me that she had attended one of Mr. James NLP seminars, and something had happened. I will not tell you what exactly what she said happened because she may have had a grudge against Mr. James. I will only give you a hint. Let's say it was a negative encounter with something of the supernatural.

We continued to talk over huna and life in general for about 90 minutes, and she asked Michelle and I to do a healing session for her. We did, and she prepared to leave, and before she left she shoved a $100 Cdn bill in my hand and offered to let me use her home should I ever like to teach a huna workshop in Orilia, Ontario Canada.

Tomas: Thank you for posting this link. You just gave me yet another of several reasons to avoid Tad James' material.
