On May 15 I was asked to attend Kealakehe Elementary's second annual Career Day, a new experience for me.
I, along with my partner Grace, spent two hours talking with the kids about supernatural & paranormal research, ghost tours, book publishing and television production.
The kids asked us questions about our equipment and our appearance on the Travel Channel show, "Legends of Hawaii" when we went in search of Madame Pele more than five miles underground. Click here to see a clip.
Dear fellow Explorers,
There has been some recent changes to the Hawaii Vortex Field Guide and I wanted to let you know exactly what changed.
First, the cover now reads:
Hawaii Vortex Field Guide
"Island Vortex Series #1"
instead of "A Self-Guided Island Adventure."
It was time to emphasize the fact that this book is part of the Island Vortex Series that I am working on. All future book covers will also have this and show their respective number in the series. The Maui Vortex Field Guide is #2 in the series and coming out this Spring.
Second, the retail price has been lowered. The price is now $14.95 for the black & white photo edition, and $24.95 for the full color edition (which is only available online here).
Third, there is a new coupon in the book to replace the one from Big Island Ghost Tours. Now you'll be able to further enjoy your Hawaiian vortex experience with a free admission to Paleaku Gardens Peace Sanctuary, one of the vortexes featured in the book!
Fourth, the Hawaii Vortex Field Guide is now in three bookstores across the Big Island. Kona Stories Book Store (KONA), Basically Books (HILO), Big Island Bookbuyers (HILO) and the Paleaku Gardens Peace Sanctuary (KONA) gift shop all now carry the book. Click here to see a map of, and directions to, each location. If you can't find any copies in the stores, you can always message me and I can bring one to you if you're in Kona at no extra charge.
Oh...I just remembered...be sure to check out the new "#ZachPaks" I'm introducing that include some cool Hawaiiana in the form of CD, rare post cards and more.
Zach Royer, C.L.P.I., O.M.
Zach is an independent researcher, healer, author, explorer and director of Hawaii's premier anomalous research organization, Kahuna Research Group, where he has spent the last five years at the forefront of exploring Hawaii's secrets & mysteries, and also making medicines with the plethora of Hawaiian herbs. His work has been featured on the Travel Channel, in the Journal of Anomalous Sciences, as well as in numerous travel magazines and on many different websites over the last few years.
On this episode he shares with Claire, Jason and Sandra the benefits of using herbal tinctures and how to make them yourself in just four simple steps.
Step 1) Place your fresh/dried herb of choice inside a glass mason jar approximately 3/4 full. (Your herbs will compact once liquid is added so you may be able to add more)
Step 2) Add alcohol to jar until almost full. Leave room to be able to shake. (Vodka is ideal for it's nearly odorless and extracts both alcohol and water soluble compounds.) Seal the jar with lid and store in a cool place.
Step 3) Shake your jar(s) daily anywhere from two weeks to 6 months. Longer=Stronger.
Step 4) After at least two weeks, you can bottle your extract and start using it. Using any kitchen strainer or new nylon stocking you can separate alcohol from herb at which point you are ready to bottle it.
Bottles: I found the local co-op (Island Naturals on Hawaii Island) to have perfect 2oz. & 4oz. dropper bottles which you can see in the video.

On the next episode I will be taking a trip to a healing energy vortex that I wrote about in the book "Hawaii Vortex Field Guide" and talking about the healing aspects of these sacred sites. Stay tuned and please subscribe!
