A Word from Kahu
The Way of Aloha is one of honor, connection, and reciprocal relationship with all that is, beginning with the Self.
This 'ike ku'una (ancestral wisdom), though expressed from the lens of Hawaiian principles, is fundamentally human and universally applicable for all people, cultures, and walks of life.
When embodied in lifestyle, The Way of Aloha can bring significant changes to how you relate to the totality of human existence. All relationships become renewed and deeper purpose is realized.

The Lokahi Triangle (Wheel)
The Lokahi Triangle is where fundamental health begins. This is an ancient template that is utilized to guide our mauli ola (wellness) to a state of Lokahi (balance, unity, harmony).
As a people and culture of Lokahi, the kanaka maoli see the life of the Self from a holistic, all connected viewpoint. The total wellness of the kanaka (person) internally is measured by six main factors including the physical, mental, emotional, spiritual, relational, as well as work or life's purpose.
From the Hawaiian perspective, if you are a well-balanced kanaka, it is due to the harmonious relationship of these 6 factors in your life. Once these are in Lokahi, then you live in a state of Pono (alignment) with all that exists. Yet, if you experience a life of struggle and suffering, you can find the main cause within the disharmony of one or more of these intrinsic factors.
