I am The Heart Alchemist ~
" Our heart is our place of true power and wisdom. To peal away old layers, heal and re-integrate ourselves with sacred alchemy is not difficult or painful as one may think. As we re-align and balance our hearts and minds, while present in our bodies, we are able to navigate the intensity of today's world harmoniously with peace. Being aware, connected and skillful in ourselves and our lives is key to living a healthy successful life.
My cultivated ability to be connected and present in this way has literally saved my life in more than one occasion! I trust my intuition and inner knowing a million fold and this proves correct over and over again. The more I listen within, trust and respond, the more glorious my life is. The safer I truly am in each moment.
I am 'Iolani Grace. This is my work. I have created LifeShift to assist and empower people to make the necessary shifts and freedom from unhealthy limiting thoughts, feelings and patterns. Thus creating the space as we create new pathways for the wholeness, worthiness and confidence of of who you truly are to emerge Gracefully into this world. You come home to you. Truly."
"I love creating magical sacred spaces live or virtually, 1 - 1, in couples or collective groups, to remember who you truly are, heal and love yourself free. Such a joyous experience of family.
In this I offer practical daily tools to create peace, harmony and success manifesting your hopes, dreams and aspirations. If this is something you would like to experience and develop more in yourself. Please come journey with me."

How I got where I am today ~
Born and raised in Santa Cruz, California in 1962 , 'Iolani experienced a great passion for nature, indigenous culture, spirituality, healing and dance from a young age. Having a natural gift and grateful for the encouragement from her dear parents, she developed my Inner Power to trust create what seemed not possible in her body and her life.
At 16, 'Iolani began dancing professionally ballet and modern dance in companies in California, New York City, Switzerland and Israel. Companies 'Iolani Grace danced in are: Palo Alto Dance Theater, California, Basel Ballet Co. Switzerland, Bat Sheva Dance Co. Israel, Peridance Ensemble, NYC. She has also performed in Carnegie Hall and been featured in television shows in America and Japan.
After a full life of travel and professional dance, continuing in NYC 'Iolani hit bottom with her addiction and suppression with food then later drugs. Caving inside for 9 years of Bulimia and several years with drugs she began a new journey of healing and recovery. From here a new life began. 'Iolani dove in full force to save her life. After years of feeling, tears and complete devotion to her healing journey, 'Iolani studied the most effective transformational healing modalities she now teaches and has created some of her own based upon what is most powerful in her inner healing journey. If you are suffering, know that you are not alone. 'Iolani has been there and can hold your hand as you rise up and shine again!
One of 'Iolani's Shaman teachers Edgar Delgado, from Mexico who was a student of Carlos Castanedos, wrote a poem for 'Iolani which spoke of her ability to dive deep with anyone to the very depth of the ocean where only few dared to go, to hold your hand and bring you up again to soar in the freedom of the stars. This was touching for 'Iolani and also true. 'Iolani is not afraid to go very very deep with grace and does this daily in her own life. It is from this depth that great wisdom is harvested and offered in its abundance to the world.
'Iolani Grace has experienced many tragic deaths in her family and community as well as a particularly horrific life changing event in Oct 2002 right after her 40th birthday celebration. More can be share on this if there is purpose. However the point to share in this moment is one of inspiration and hope. 'Iolani has been from the depths of trauma, terror, pain, limitation and suffering to heights of victoriously achieving the seeming impossible through out her life. 'Iolani has the compassion, care, skill, wisdom and illumination to assist you to Rise as well into your true empowerment, freedom, purpose and joy!
With great love and respect and a humble heart 'Iolani Grace honours her all world teachers and healers some include; Richard Gibson, Igal Perry, Cliff Keuter, 12 Step Programs, Interfaith Ministries NYC, Sondra Ray, Valnn Dayne, Bill Tourvund, Edgar Delgado, Mark Powers, Lyndia Asbury, Dr Jack Knocks, Dr Ronayne Loderous, Hariette Sakuma, Kumu Hula Punahlele Andrade, Kumu Keli'i Tau'a, Kahu Abraham Kawai'i, Ho'okahi Tamara Stevens, Kumu Brenda Mohalapua Ignacio, Lame Deer, Uncle Bob Randall, Paramahansa Yogananda, Gurumayi and a whole Host of Angels, Ascended Masters, Elemental Beings, Mother Nature, my beautiful son Angel and so many more! Life and Spirit is my daily teacher and I am a continual student of Life, Light and Love.
Now, ‘Iolani Grace is at home now in Brisbane, QLD as well as the Byron Shire, NSW Australia and Santa Cruz California. She is offering on site and virtual private and couples 'Life Shift' Healing & Coaching, leading transformational group workshops, retreats, events and teaching shamanic healing arts worldwide.
"It is my hearts desire to bring more love, peace, inspiration, light and hope into this world!"
