Certified Ho’oponopono Practitioner

Hawaii SunsetHo’ oponopono is an ancient Hawaiian healing practice primarily focused on gratitude, forgiveness, and reconciliation. Ho’ oponopono is a process of mental cleansing in which relationships are healed utilizing open discussion, listening with the intent to understand and expressing understanding, gratitude and forgiveness.

My study and certification as a Ho’ oponopono Practitioner is another step on my path to “Be Peace and Do Peace”. I know with certainty that peace starts with me. I focus daily on forgiveness and gratitude, including using the Ho’ oponopono process. All of this work helps me to be a more effective mediator, co-creating peace, and resolving conflicts of all sorts.
