Instant 'awa (kava): no strainer needed! Scroll through bottom of page for further info and to discover resources about this plant / our unique offering.

@plantofpeace is the first 'awa / kava on the market solely intended for ceremonial use.

There is history, especially here in Hawaii, that shows ‘awa was revered as sacred, used in ceremony, in council, and for conflict resolution. Kava has been used for 3000 years for spiritual connection and enlightenment. It's known as a way to connect with ancestors and the gods, or in more modern words, the Soul/Higher Self/Source. Kava has been called the root of happiness and the “plant of peace” -  with no single recorded account of an individual becoming violent while on kava, which we know is a very different story than with alcohol, today’s social drug of choice.

I am excited to announce that I am partnering with the ‘awa in whole powdered root form to distribute the consciousness of peace in a way that is reverent of kava’s historic cultural use yet also curious of its fresh wisdom today, in application of where humanity stands now, globally.

With @plantofpeace, I am dedicated to providing the highest quality, ceremonial grade ‘awa in the form of “instant” whole root powder so that you get the most benefit possible both physically and spiritually. No strainer needed!

A NEW OFFERING UNDER THE KAKAO UMBRELLA

'AWA (HAWAIIAN KAVA)

Sourced directly from an organic farm on the Big Island of Hawaii (expand sections to read more)

No middlemen or shipping containers. Fresh 'awa / kava only!

Made from FRESH green kava juice (NON micronized)

Our instant ‘awa is NOT like medium grind kava where you have to strain all the fibers out. This is *non micronized dehydrated Kava juice* which is extremely rare and can’t be found on any other commercial kava website.

Not "Micronized" or "Micronized Instant". This is a TRUE instant kava that is made from dehydrated kava juice. If you were to make a batch of fresh (un-dried) kava to drink, if you dehydrated that drink you would have the instant kava powder we use. Made from Fresh Hawaiian 'Awa root - just add water!

Mo'i: Noble Strain for Ceremonial Use

Mo’i is a rare strain of ‘awa/kava that you won’t find anywhere else in the world. Hawaiian 'Awa is considered to be among the best of the best. Just like the Vanuatu “Noble” kava, which means it has been safely used by Islanders for thousands of years. It is grown and harvested fresh, never being shipped in a container overseas.

The ‘Awa in the @plantofpeace tins is the noble strain called Mo’i, sourced directly from an organic farm on the Big Island of Hawaii. The Mo’i strain was traditionally used by the ali’i (royalty) and chiefs for special ceremonies.

When working with Mo’i, we are invited to bring extra intention and reverence.

I was immediately drawn to communing with the Mo’i when I began working with ‘awa here in Hawaii. I could feel something about it was special. It’s a rare gift to be able to source it, and furthermore share it with the world at large.

Enjoy, and please do share what you hear, learn and experience when you work with this sacred strain.

INSTANT 'AWA (KAVA) POWDER

PREPARATION

HOW TO INCORPORATE CEREMONIAL ‘AWA INTO YOUR LIFE

Best on an empty stomach.

Mix 1 tsp of Mo’i ‘awa with one cup of water. Temperature of water is up to you (I prefer it cold!)

Shake in a jar before pouring it or simply stir to get out any clumps.

Have a small spoon handy so that you can stir the ‘awa and water before drinking, as the powder can settle to the bottom.

Optional: drink from a coconut shell.

Mo’i can be consumed any time of day. You can increase dose if you'd like or have an additional shell after 10 minutes or so.

You can drink it all in one chug or sip it. It is very earthy and will make your mouth feel a little numb.

You can choose to meditate, pray, or allow a dialogue to open up naturally with anyone you are sharing ‘awa with.

If you’d like, you can have another round or two. You can also play with increasing dosage - instead of 1 tsp in 8oz, you can increase to 3 tsp in 8oz and feel the difference.

State a "commitment" out loud and say any honoring prayers before consuming all in one gulp (optional). Great for meditation or intentional connection with friends. Read below for example protocol.
