'Iolani Grace

The Heart Alchemist

   Who I Am ~

" I Am 'Iolani Grace, the Heart Alchemist. I am an International Healer, Ordained Interfaith Minister, Rebirther, Dancer, Teacher and Inspired Group Facilitator. I love to empower clients, students, and 'Ohana to connect with the true Power within, to trust and love deeply, and to express their authentic self and unique gifts in this world.
My entire life, I have celebrated the human heart, body, mind, and spirit. Dance has always been my passion and prayer. I express my soul through the temple of heart, body, and nature.
For 40 years, I have joyously assisted thousands to navigate and align their bodies, hearts, and minds with Grace, harnessing their Inner connection, innate power, and intuition, fulfilling their true calling and purpose in life.

The Heart Alchemist ~

Our heart is our place of true power and wisdom. To peel 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.

'Iolani Grace's cultivated ability to be connected and present in this way has literally saved her life in more than one occasion! She trusts her intuition and inner knowing a million fold and this proves correct over and over again. T


The more each of us listen within, trust and respond, the more glorious life becomes.


Many around the world are grateful for 'Iolani's compassion, insight, encouragement, and all-embracing love supporting their life transformation and personal empowerment. Look through the testament to her work here!

  Background  ~

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 with encouragement from her dear parents, 'Iolani developed her Inner Power to trust and create what seemed impossible 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, oceans of 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 own healing journey. If you are challenged and suffering, please 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. It is a truly a miracle she is alive. 'Iolani has the compassion, care, skill, wisdom and illumination to assist you to Rise as well into your true empowerment, freedom, purpose and joy!

It is with great love and respect and a humble heart 'Iolani Grace honours her world renown 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, the Radiant Rose Academy and a whole Host of Angels, Ascended Masters, Elemental Beings, Mother Nature, my beautiful son Angel, my family and wonderful community of friends and so many more!
