Have you been interested in Astrology but find it a bit overwhelming? Kauakea has been teaching astrology since 2004 at Sacred Path Healing School in Honolulu. Her teaching style is practical and fun.
Kauakea is a genuine, caring instructor who will teach with humor, grace and abiding patience. She explains difficult concepts simply and in-depth, making Astrology accessible and fun! Exploring my natal chart was a deeply healing experience that opened my life up to adventure and joy in completely unforeseen ways. The format of the class was a balance of simple, fill-in the blank exercises, deep personal reflection, and real-talk conversation. You will leave feeling empowered and the students in your class may very well become friends for life. ~ BA
I have loved working with Kauakea! She has opened my eyes to so much about astrology for myself. She has shown me how I can use astrology to help others. She has taught me somethings about myself that were crucial in my personal progress. I felt a deep connection with her from the first time she read my chart. She has been one of my guides on this planet that has helped me through some very intense times. The astrology readings were spot on every time and hit me to the core as to what direction I needed to take. The readings always provided me with the skills to take charge of my own healing journey. Later on, I began to really want to exploring learning the depth of astrology and Kauakea has been an incredible teacher. Showing me the ropes and inspiring me to keep exploring how to skillfully and unskillfully apply astrology to my life. ~ Stacey Sexton
Kauakea is such a beautiful soul and I am forever grateful we met. She truly helped me to better understand who I am and why I made the choices I did. She has helped me to recognize my “traps” and also helped me to see and embrace my strengths. She also helped me (through her readings) to better understand my husband and two boys. ~ Marcie Ahana
I am in the midst of an astrology class with Kauakea and it's a wonderful journey! Recently in class, I learned that I need to step out of the "mundane world" and I feel like this class is the helping me accomplish that. I have gone to a few classes at Kauakea's beautiful and relaxing healing hale while another classmate joins us electronically. Recently I have been so busy at work that I would have been late to, or missed class but I was also able to take advantage of joining the class electronically, from home! Kauakea has been accommodating and encouraging of my weekly, last minute decisions to embrace technology. It's wonderful to be able to zoom home from work, make a cup of coffee, grab a snack, get in comfy clothes, grab my book and my computer, and enjoy class. I'm learning by getting to know my own chart and also the charts of classmates. It's fascinating and fun! She is explains astrology in a language that I can understand and it has already aided me in having a better understanding of the people around me. ~ Brandy Burrafato
Kauakea is one incredibly talented teacher. She has such a fantastic way of explaining astrology in a way so even the novice can understand. She is wise and always pushing herself to learn more in order to deepen her craft. I wouldn't ever pass up the opportunity to work with Kauakea for her breadth of knowledge is unlike anything I have ever experienced before in the world of astrology. ~ Sarah McCallum
The class requires provides a fill in workbook and a set of 42 Astro study cards!
Do I need to know anything about astrology to take this course?
No, just a willingness to learn and be open to the step by step process.
What if I miss a class?

What can I expect to learn?
We will be interpreting our own natal birth. Kauakea 's approach is using astrology as a compassion practice. Your chart if full of gifts and lessons, discover what you came here to do and learn kindness for self and others.

We had a very diverse group of women from quite young to let's just say "life experienced", the combination of age and where each of us were at in life brought creativity, youthful joy & wonderful wisdom. I felt and captured the beauty of the island in a profound perspective when seeing it through photography. I learned so much from Kauakea and Lisa, both accomplished photographers who shared their talents so generously. The accommodations and food were beyond my expectations. I bonded with each and every one of the beautifull women and it's a wonderful memory I will cherish forever. GPD, Payson, AZ.
I cannot thank Kauakea enough for my natal chart reading! Although I love astrology, I did not know anything past my sun sign is Scorpio with rising sign Cancer. Kauakea took the time to explain to me in depth what each symbol meant and their positive and negative aspects, in a way that was easy to understand. The reading with Kauakea revealed what astrological goodness makes up Emi in such a gentle, yet fun way. Things I've known about myself but questioned "why" were validated and explained with such compassion and understanding. Through the reading, Kauakea helped me to know my Soul on a deeper more intimate level and I cannot be more grateful. For all those on their path, I highly recommend a reading with Kauakea; she gives you all that you need to know astrologically to connect you to yourself and bring you closer to your true purpose.

Kauakea is an amazing energy healer and teacher. Her energy healing classes give a deeper understanding of the energies of the universe running through our bodies. She creates a safe compassionate container to explore our inner world, the defense patterns, whatever energies get stuck and want to be released. In that light she gives a deeper insight in the depths of our body, the energies running through and whatever happens in the invisible, which is very tangible and at the same time so hard to define. I love the way she uses playful, creative tools to makes the unseen tangible and bringing it into our conscious perception. I highly recommend her class. Mahalo nui loa! ~ Genevieve B.
The healings offered for nearly every life condition truly bring about repatterning of inner and outer life systems. I've recently been receiving Resonance Repatterning sessions covering patterns instilled in childhood to present day influences affecting my health and well being. Wow, very powerful and specific work. Instant and ongoing benefits have included strategies for dealing with over-independence, physical "asanas" for calming over stimulated nervous system, and affirmations for directing mind into new healthy patterns of thought and actions. Also have taken advantage of the many astrology offerings, birth charts, couples charts, now planning on getting cartography chart- where in the world is my love life most likely to flourish, inquiring minds will find out soon! Thank you Kauakea and the Healing Resourse Team! - Happily Healing Otter
For my birthday, I had a "progress" reading of my astrology chart by Kauakea Winston. This type of reading looks at the year ahead to provide a road map. When I started to go through a rough patch recently, I was comforted because I could turn to this recorded reading. It enabled me to get more perspective so that I did not panic. Kauakea is very insightful, articulate and skilled at astrology. Her way of explaining things, even if they don't seem evident at the moment, is particularly useful. I called to tell her what a great help her reading was! I am sure I will turn to it again as things continue to unfold throughout this pivotal year. Thank you, dear friend! Aloha, Susanne Sims
