Kukuipuka Heiau

Kukuipuka Heiau is a pu’uhonua, a place of refuge on the island of Maui. It is a place where people come to ho’oponopono, make things right within themselves through prayer, meditations, protocols and sacred expressions of the oneness of life. Kukuipuka means, the doorway to the light. A portal that connects each one to the source of themselves as the light. For many years, the heiau, this temple, lay hidden and unattended, until it whispered in spirit to Lei’ohu Ryder, Maydeen ‘Iao and Akoni Akana who made prayers, offerings, protocols and blessings in reawakening and reconnecting to the sacred teachings of this temple of peace and healing. Kahu Lei’ohu Ryder and Maydeen ‘Iao are the caretakers, wisdom keepers and indigenous emissaries of Kukuipuka Heiau. They share the vision, experience and spirit of Kukuipuka. Many people from the community and the world come to pray, play, heal, share and embrace all spectrums of themselves at this place of peace.

The Kukuipuka Ohana, is a non-profit organization dedicated to the preservation of Kukuipuka Heiau and the vision of aloha that restores, reveals and remembers the light of oneness in each one, as indigenous to the planet. Financial gifts and donations supports the cultural, spiritual and environmental maintenance activities of the heiau, as well as assists the various needs of kupuna in the community.
