E ola!

It is a joy and great honor to be a child of this land that has nourished me all my life.  Since December 2011, Iʻve had the privilege of studying Tao soul healing wisdom and techniques from my teacher Dr. & Master Zhi Gang Sha.  On August 8, 2015, he appointed me as one of his Master Teachers of the Tao Academy.  At that time, I was the first native Hawaiian appointed to this kuleana (responsibility) for Hawaii.

Malia Davidson, a devoted mother of five and a Certified Master Teacher of the Tao Academy holds the unique honor of being the first native Hawaiian entrusted with the kuleana (responsibility) for Hawai'i by her teacher, Dr. & Master Zhi Gang Sha. Since December 2011, Malia has immersed herself in the profound teachings of Tao wisdom and soul healing, seamlessly blending her cultural upbringing with soul power to offer a distinctive perspective.

Rooted in the discipline of aloha and soul healing, Malia's life journey spans roles as a mother, community organizer, university lecturer, college scholarship director, crew member of Hawaii's largest private watershed, and human rights advocate. These diverse experiences have provided her with invaluable lessons that fuel her commitment to serving and understanding the urgent shifts occurring globally.

As the founder of Punawai, LLC, Malia extends a heartfelt wish to support your inward journey towards peace, healing, and joy. Drawing inspiration from the Hawaiian proverb "Aʻohe pau ka ʻike i ka hālau hoʻokahi," which translates to "All knowledge is not learned in one school," she recognizes the interconnectedness of Tao and Hawaiian wisdom. Malia's approach involves an inward dive into the soul's purpose, fostering reverence for one's soul, and connecting to the elements that surround us.
