Self-care made simple.

Evolving at the convergence of beauty and being, napua is a home for simple self-care rooted in the world’s most ancient, time-honored traditions.

  • Our Mission

    To celebrate the cosmic rituals of daily living with ancient, time-honored alchemy; and

    revive the healing force of one’s innate-Self with practical wisdom and simple, powerful practices.

  • Our Values

    Nā Pua (Hawaiian), was inspired by my late-mother’s name, Fuala’au (Samoan), and refers to the blossoming of spirit and wisdom that unfolds as one cultivates the garden of awareness.

    The practices shared here are from the non-dual Vedic and Tantric wisdom traditions, and are rooted primarily in and informed by Āyurveda – “the science of health/longevity” and Jyotiṣa – “the science of light”, which is more loosely known as “Vedic astrology”.

  • Our Ethics

    View Napua’s Code of Conduct (CoC).  Our CoC details a comprehensive policy of professional conduct and includes but is not limited to Napua’s General Principles as well as Grievance, Anti-Retaliation, Sexual Misconduct and Anti-Harassment Policies.
