Dr. Hank Wesselman

Research paleoanthropologist Hank Wesselman, Ph.D., did his undergraduate work and his Masters in Zoology at the University of Colorado at Boulder. He then received his doctoral degree in Anthropology from the University of California at Berkeley. A native New Yorker, he spent much of his life living and working among traditional tribal peoples and served in the US Peace Corps in the 1960s. It was then that he first became interested in indigenous spiritual wisdom. Since 1971, his research took him to the fossil beds of Eastern Africa’s Great Rift Valley (where they found “Lucy”) in search of answers to the mystery of human origins. That’s where the visions began. He taught shamanic workshops from 1991 until 2021, when he left this world on Monday, February 15, 2021, to continue his adventures into the many Worlds beyond time and space.

  • history and future of Hawaii and the Hawaiian people
  • the fall of Western civilization as we know it
  • magic, mysticism and meaning
  • genuine Hawaiian Kahuna mystics and Hawaiian mysticism teachings
  • our current climate catastrophe/global warming
  • disclosure
  • classic “Hero’s Journey” 
  • supernatural action packed adventures and quests
  • an odyssey of discovery
  • origin and the destiny of our species
  • the keys to personal power and the healing of all humankind
  • true phenomenon of spirit possession/shared consciousness
  • greater truths of the ʻAumākua
  • the unlimited power and potential of human consciousness
  • conveyance of the souls of the dead
  • power, protection and support from the Spirit world
  • authentic shamanic time travel (between past/present/future), and
  • the mysterious Source of all existence and the Great Mystery
  • And it is a true story shared by those who lived it.

Hank’s dynamic interactions with Nainoa give us an intimate look at modern-day kahuna spiritual wisdom (not limited to Hawaiian peoples – as Hank was a born-and-bred New Yorker). Their extraordinary visionary voyages finally bring them face to face with each other and the mysterious Source of all existence and the Great Mystery.

Will this hero’s journey result in triumph or tragedy for all humanity and the entire planet? Will people listen, or is it already too late? Is there such a thing as predetermined “fate,” or can we alter civilization’s destiny 5,000 years from now?

Will we do nothing and let Western civilization, as we know it, fall and disappear like countless prior “great civilizations” (such as the Inca/Mayans, the Roman Empire, the Egyptians, and who knows how many others)?

Perhaps humanity cannot change our foreseen fate nor break the apparent cycles of the rise and fall of human civilizations. But what if we can make enough of a positive difference (by utilizing the information that Hank and Nainoa worked so hard to share with us) to create a better outcome? Those who know and understand Shamans know nothing is set in stone, and the mere act of focusing your attention on something changes it (The Observer Effect is a well-known metaphysical/quantum physics precept).

Unbeknownst to many, Hawaiian Elder and spiritual leader Hale Kealohalani Makua (“Makua”) was a dear friend and very involved with this project and the work (and he still is ~ as are Hank, the Ancestors, Descendants, and many others in the seen and unseen realms). There are supplemental materials never before revealed outside of Hank’s inner circle or published anywhere being incorporated into this project in conjunction with the original books. All the information and what’s happening is, in a word, astonishing! We always recommend reading all of Hank’s works. In conjunction with the new 2023 release, the original trilogy, TIMEWEAVER: THE BOOK OF NAINOA and THE BOWL OF LIGHT: Ancestral Wisdom from a Hawaiian Shaman, are all must-reads for those who want to know more and live on a whole different level.


Hank and Jill had many discussions with me over several years about this project, the supplemental materials, and the published books. I will get into details later in the development process, and so much can (and will) change in the blink of an eye. Currently, all the focus and energy is on development, so only a few posts will be online. We will let everyone know what’s happening when the appropriate time comes. Please keep all of us in your prayers and highest thoughts for manifesting this in the right way in whatever way that may appear. Divine timing is always key in everything. Please connect with us via the social media links and check back here for updates. Thanks, everyone! ~ Lisa Rhyne

February 15, 2023

In  honor of Hank Wesselman on the second anniversary of his passing (Feb. 15, 2021) and with great personal pleasure, I announce the publication of Hank’s final manuscript, “Timeweaver: The Book of Nainoa”. It is available for purchase from online booksellers, and the Kindle eBook version is soon to be released.

This book is unique, certainly different from the others in the Spiritwalker trilogy, in that Nainoa wrote it, with Hank functioning as a channel. It first read as an unfinished book, and no doubt Hank anticipated having more time and connections with Nainoa, committing more to the story.

Yet it ends in its own way.

Keeping that in mind, something interesting happened in the autumn of 2022. Here is Jill Kramer, Hank’s longtime friend and editor, explaining it…
“The day after I started copyediting (Timeweaver), I happened to be talking to my good friend, spiritual medium Marilyn Kapp, the author of Love Is Greater Than Pain. I mentioned that I was working on Hank’s book, and as we were speaking on the phone, she said that Hank was “coming through in spirit.”

“With Marilyn as the spiritual channel, the three of us had a delightful and enlightening “conversation,” in which Hank imparted many words of wisdom, hope, healing, and love for both his wife, Jill, and their daughters, and for the world at large. He also said that he had an idea for the end of Timeweaver. His advice was to have his readers come up with their own endings, and then share those writings with others. Both Marilyn and I thought this was a brilliant solution. When I emailed Jill and told her what had transpired, she was very moved and said that she thought it was a wonderful idea too.”

Some readers will find this appealing, while others will discover that the book ends naturally, with an openness and greater understanding of what is possible in general. Regardless, Hank is very pleased with the book’s publication.

My great thanks to the many hands that brought this story to the light of day. A special mention is due to Angela Leslee, the master navigator of this project and an author in her own right, having published “The Way of Love: On the Camino de Santiago” (2019) and “Lucky to Live Hawaii: From the Mundane to the Magical, a Life Transformed”(2022). Her knowledge of self-publishing allowed for Timeweaver’s publication to occur in a timely fashion.

Now, “Timeweaver: The Book of Nainoa” is poised to land in your hands. There is certainly more to the story, and here it is!  Enjoy reading!   Aloha,  Jill Kuykendall
