All ʻŌlelo of the Week

Hoʻoponopono is an ancient Hawaiian spiritual practice that involves learning to heal all things by accepting ‘total responsibility’ for everything that surrounds us—confession, repentance, and reconciliation. As a protocol, hoʻoponopono is used to squash contention and disputes in a manner that is respectful and thoughtful for all involved parties. This engagement provides an opportunity to acknowledge and take ownership of one’s actions/behaviors so the participants can move forward with honor and integrity.”

—Adam Halemano, Jr., Institutional Assessment Specialist, Leeward Community College
