(a correction in the article: Ho'oponopono is not hula. It is one of the most ancient values and practices in the Hawaiian culture to bring peaceful resolution to conflict within the family and between individuals.)

Hawaiian Hula is a sacred dance, to express Aloha for yourself and to others. Hula is ancient storytelling from a culture that embraced the qualities of Love in every breath and action they took. We now have an opportunity to take this essence of love, embedded in these stories, into our bodies through our breath and express it out to our world through the movements of the dance. It helps women of all ages, sizes and ethnicities to experience their inner beauty and flow, giving them a better sense of who they are, and a stronger self-image and feeling of self-confidence. Hula is a source of joy to beholders and dancers alike.
Ho'oponopono embodies one of the most sacred ancient values of the Hawaiian people. The definition of the word means "to set things right". Language books on Hawaiian will often have a sentence like, E ho'oponopono i ka hale a me ka pa ("Tidy up the house and clean up the yard." Another meaning is "to restore and maintain good relationships among family, and family", and "The specific family conference in which relationships were 'set right' through prayer, discussion, confession, repentance, and mutual restitution and forgiveness." There is also a modern form of Ho'oponopono, that many people outside of Hawai'i are familiar with that is designed for individual practice without the need for a group.In having the opportunity to go back and reconnect with this ancient knowledge and way of living, that is all about maintaining the peaceful harmony of the family ('ohana); we have a precious resource in our modern world that is punctuated with so much stress, chaos and uncertainty. By helping us to remember through Love that we are all one people - one family, regardless of the country, culture or background that we originate from, we can maintain harmonious relations with our heart, mind & spirit, the sacred land and the human family to co-create the world and the life we want and choose to have in our everyday reality.
