ABOUT THE OWNER
Since 1997 Shanon Mason has been creating and experimenting with flower essences from deep within the Kauai rainforest.
Spending days at a time in a jungle hammock and using pristine rock water derived from a lava filtered spring. What started as a hobby, soon evolved into a passion when Shanon was introduced to the art of distillation.
After 3 years of experimentation and perfecting the technique of blending the two modalities, the results have been amazing. This new and cutting edge product is excellent for those who are already familiar with the use of flower remedies and a perfect introduction for the everyday person who has yet to experience the therapeutic benefit of vibrational remedies in an easy and comfortable way.
Her highest hope is to introduce as many people as possible to this form of deep foundational healing.
EDUCATION & EXPERIENCE
During her 3 year mentorship with Shakti Gawain Shanon has developed a high sense of awareness and connection to subtle vibrations that are most strongly perceived in the remote wilderness. Shanon was then introduced to Levon Ohai, 3rd generation local Hawaiian herbalist and instructor at the University of Hawaii. For so many years the Hawaiian traditional healing arts were nearly driven to the edge of extinction due to persecution and ignorance. What remained in hardback was heavily steeped in mystery as a way to protect and preserve the ancient traditions. Fortunately Mr. Ohai and his colleagues at UH saw the need to introduce the concepts taught to them by there families to anyone who was interested in order to further preserve and protect this ancient tradition. Shanon was in the original classes taught at the local high school on Kauai over ten years ago and has continued her education spending many hours in the field with Mr. Ohai and learning the la au tradition.
