In observance of International Conflict Resolution Day, the public is invited to a free workshop, “Ho‘opono Pono Ke Ala: Making Right More Right, the Path,” from 5-7 p.m. Oct. 26 in University of Hawaii at Hilo Campus Center Room 301.
A reception with pupus begins at 4:45 p.m. Parking on campus is free after 4 p.m.
The evening begins with an introduction by the Rotary Peace Committee on “Hawai‘i Nei: Vision of International Peace.”
The workshop presenter is Kumu Mahealani Kuamo‘o-Henry, a Hawaiian spirituality teacher and practitioner.
“To make right more right is to help people release self-limiting thought patterns and emotions and become more connected with their highest selves,” Kuamo‘o-Henry said. “You can’t let the mana‘o (intellect) and pu‘uwai (emotions) run amok; they’re destructive if you don’t train them to become skillful parts of you.”
This workshop will teach and provide an opportunity to try out specific new skills for better interactions that will help your “self-best” path.
This event is the third in the “Kakou: Let’s Work It Out!” workshop series co-hosted by the county Office of the Prosecuting Attorney, Ku‘ikahi Mediation Center, Rotary Club of Hilo, Rotary Club of Hilo Bay, Rotary Club of South Hilo and UH-Hilo.
