Huna 101: Parallels


This chart was developed by Huna Ohana member Joseph Gurney.

Hi all,

My background is Qabalah of the Golden Dawn variety. After recently getting into Huna, I have formed a tentative theory that there are parallels between Huna and the Qabalah (and also yoga and alchemy). Specifically, the Huna selves approximate to the Qabalistic parts of the soul. This is not unreasonable when you consider that Huna was said to originate in Egypt or Africa, and that the tribes left their wisdom in various places en route as they migrated there from.

I am pretty certain that the Unihipili, Uhane and Aumakua are the direct equivalents of the Nephesh, Ruach and Neshamah respectively. However after that it gets hazy, and it may well be that at the upper end of the scale, so to speak, there are no exact matches.

Are these correspondences valid? And if so, does this mean that knowing more about the one (e.g. Huna itself), can teach us more about the others?

Please see the image below for a summary.

I am grateful to Vince for helpful pointers he has given me already.


Keep studying!
