It's been a busy past couple of weeks for me as October has come and gone while the year end holiday season has officially started. Just a few weeks until Thanksgiving and just under two months to Christmas. I look forward to this time each year, especially when Mauna Kea and Mauna Loa get snow. Makes for a truly unique and wonderful setting!
Ten days before Halloween, two weeks ago to be exact, I was a guest on the Inspiring Lives with Samantha Iha-Preece radio show talking about Kahuna Research Group and the research into supernatural Hawaii the group performs, and also the book publishing division the group has in order to further tell their stories, in paperback and digital formats.
The hour long radio show aired on October 21st, 2015 on KPRP 650AM radio at 9pm around the Hawaiian Islands and streamed online via ustream.tv. An audio recording was made and shared with me days later, which has been included below in this article.
There were a couple of very minor technical difficulties at the beginning of the show due to the fact I was calling in on a cell phone, which required a few more cords to be plugged in than usual. An easy fix that the studio personnel handled like pros. It would have been nice to do an in person in studio interview, and I would have loved to fly over to the Oahu studio, but last minute inter-island flights are quite expensive...anyways, definitely next time!
A few days after appearing on the radio show I received an email from a reporter for the Huffington Post, a fairly big news agency, who was doing a piece on old spooky MacKenzie State Park, a well-known local paranormal hotspot, in time for Halloween. After speaking with the Huff Post reporter, Chris D'Angelo, and exchanging a couple more emails with him to clarify the details, the article transpired. An a nice article at that! Here's a screenshot of the Huff Post article, which was published on October 29th, 2015.
Great news....I was asked to be a guest speaker at Kona Stories along with two other local authors on September 1st (Tuesday) for their monthly "Words & Wine" author event, talking about my best selling guidebook, the Hawaii Vortex Field Guide and how I came to be an author/researcher here in Hawaii. For me, life began when I moved to Hawaii...and I can't wait to talk about all the synchronicities that led up to this moment. Read more about the Hawaii Vortex Field Guide book here.
Event is free and lasts from 6pm-9pm, includes wine and snacks.

Hope to see you there!
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!

Tell us about yourself and how many books you have written.
I started writing when I was in middle school, as a way to escape the boredom of growing up in a small town. After the local bowling alley finally closed its doors one summer, I decided to start using my imagination coupled with a pen or pencil to relieve my desire to explore beyond home. To date, I have one published book on the market and I am working on another one that I hope to release soon.
What is the name of your latest book and what inspired it?
The title of my latest paperback is Pyramid Rising: Planetary Acupuncture to Combat Climate Change, and it was inspired by a correlation I found between earthquakes, natural disasters and places of power such as Stonehenge, Giza and many dozen other locations that are assembled on what is known as the World Grid.
Do you have any unusual writing habits?
Not that I am aware of, but I have a habit of writing about unusual things.
What authors, or books have influenced you?
There are so many authors and books out there that are worth mention, it’s tough to determine which books or which authors have had more of an influence on how I write or what I write about. Graham Hancock and David Hatcher Childress are two authors that are big influences, both whom are still active writers and world explorers in search of Truth.
What are you working on now?
The title of my latest book is not set in stone quite yet, but so far I’m calling it “Island Files: Big Island, Big Mystery”, and it was inspired by my experiences in Hawaii as an anomalous researcher.
What is your best method or website when it comes to promoting your books?
The best methods I’ve found for promoting my books is by word of mouth and by sharing them on Facebook with my friends and family. Of course my publisher; http://www.ShantiPublishing.com has a few tricks up their sleeves that I might be unaware of!
Do you have any advice for new authors?
My advice for any new author is something I keep in mind and try to do as much as possible, and that is to write at least one page of new material every day. If you think you’re going to write an entire book in one sitting, think again. When I began my second book I felt completely overwhelmed but once I started accumulating page after page day after day, everything fell right in to plac
What is the best advice you have ever heard?
The best advice I’ve heard is called the Golden Rule, and it consists of doing to others what you want done to you.
What are you reading now?
I am currently reading “Blink” by Malcolm Gladwell.
What’s next for you as a writer?
I suppose what’s next for me is I finish my new book and get it on the market.
What is your favorite book of all time?
I don’t necessarily have a favorite book of all time, it’s really hard to pick just one. If I had to it would most likely be any book by David Hatcher-Childress, something about ancient mysteries or ancient civilizations.
