'Ano Honua A Spiritual Guide to Hawaiian Lunar Calendar

The changing faces of the Mahina guided the magical practices of the Kahuna and influenced the daily lives of Hawai'i's people. 

ʻAno Lani: ʻAno Honua is the only book of its kind exclusively dedicated to the spiritual significance of the Hawaiian lunar calendar.

The author, Kahu Wendell Kalanikapuaenui Silva provides a fascinating in-depth perspective of the belief system of the indigenous Hawaiian people, their pre-Christian view of a person as a living spirit being, and the underlying concept of mana, or innate spiritual energy that manifests in all things.

Experience the time when the nightly phases of the moon governed almost every aspect of the daily spiritual lives of Hawaiians.
