Ho`opono In Every Home

Aloha Kākou,

Our Compassionate Koʻolaupoko team would like to invite you to join us for our first Speaker Series event of 2023! This Zoom event, Ho`opono In Every Home – will be held on Tuesday, January 24, from 3:00 – 4:30 pm with presenters Makalauna Feliciano, Loke Kalama, and Ka’ai’ai Paglinawan of Liliuokalani Trust.

Hoʻopono is a modern-day adaptation of the Hawaiian traditional practice of Hoʻoponopono.  The purpose of Hoʻopono is to empower families with a cultural approach to resolve everyday pilikia (issues) and maintain harmony.

This session will discuss the Hoʻopono process for community members, including parents, teachers, behavioral health providers, and anyone interested in this healthy and healing practice.

The outcomes of Hoʻopono focus on developing healthy communication skills, increasing positive coping skills while decreasing negative coping behaviors, identifying strengths individually and as a family, and learning a Hawaiian/spiritual practice. The ultimate outcome is a vision of “Hoʻopono in every home.”
