Testimonials for Sacred Site Tours
"I've visited sacred sites around the world, and my experiences with Robert Kalama Frutos, on the Big Island of
Hawai'i, rank at the top. As a kuhu (guardian, wisdom -
keeper, minister) and an intuitive guide, Robert holds the
space, energy, and information that facilitates a deep and
moving inner spiritual connection while visiting
each sacred sites.
Robert showed me a hidden Waipio Valley that moved me
to the core. On a second trip, we went to sites on the south
end of the island - completely unknown to most, where I
felt the presence of the ancestors and the hearts of the
original people who first touched shore there.
I was profoundly impacted by each of my several trips
with Robert. As well, the details of each trip were beautifully handled allowing me to seamlessly drop into the communion with both the seen and unseen worlds that the Hawai'ian
Islands so uniquely offers."
~ Lenedra Carroll
For those of you who want to get to see and experience
the sacred sites that hold the energy and mana
(spiritual power) of old Hawai'i, my highest recom-
mendations is Robert Kalama Frutos for your guide.
I have had the good fortune to be on three excursions
with Robert. On each trip, he not only let me know
the historical background of the area or site, he also communicated the spiritual history of the site as well
as its present day status. His utter respect and deep love
for the energies that inhabit these sites helped me
to connect deeply.
What I most appreciate is that he listens to what I know
and don’t know, and fills in the gaps with true insight
and reflection. His ease in interaction and humor make the driving time fun as well as informative.
Did you want to know the local best eateries as well?
Well Robert has those to recommend too! Ask him where
the best Lilikoi malasadas can be found on the island.
Elektra Porzel, Master Healer, Body Whisperer
"Robert's sacred site tours are extraordinary.
He has a wonderful depth of knowledge of the Big Island,
its history and its spirituality; when you are on a tour,
he brings it to life on many levels.
I have been to several heiau with Robert and the presence
of those who lived and worshipped there in the past
is palpable. He treats each site with great respect, always
asking permission from the ancestors to be in that
particular area. In doing so, he teaches the proper
protocol and inner attitude thereby deepening our
Using his own profound spiritual understandings along
with his great sense of humor he enables you to feel
a connection to the Big Island that would normally not be possible unless you have lived here for a great many years,
if not lifetimes.
It is not just visiting the sites that Robert facilitates,
but it is helping to open ones mind and more importantly
ones heart to the energy and presence that a sacred site
holds, and to the message it may have for you.
His tours have helped to expand my world and deepen my connection to the spirituality and beauty of the Big Island.
With Robert, there is lots of humor, but also quiet – he
can help you find your own quiet connection to presence,
where the message of a particular site can be heard
and received with clarity. As Robert is fond of saying,
The veil is thinner here."
