Ken joined the US military in 2001. He was deployed in the Middle East, Guam, Hong Kong, Hawaii and Australia. He was honorably discharged in 2005 suffering from stress.
Between 2005 and 2014 Ken bounced around the US. He studied Arts and Media and had a variety of jobs but never found his vocation until he discovered Munay Medicine and Munay Medicine found Ken.
Ken came to Munay in Jan 2016 initially for a retreat, however he showed an amazing understanding of plant medicines and the management of ceremonies and his retreat turned into permanent residence. For six months Ken studied San Pedro preparation with Maxwell Wieland and since Maxwell moved back to the US he prepares all the San Pedro medicine at Munay.
Ken carries within him the ‘Aloha Spirit’; he has great communication skills and a natural ability to support people through their ceremonies. He understands what stress can do to us, and how the plants help to alleviate this stress.
Ken is a great asset to Munay and we are very fortunate to have him here.
