There is no other place I would rather be right now than right here welcoming you into this learning space. Iʻve dreamed of having a global Hālau ʻŌhiʻa community for over 3 years... and here we are. Yaaaassss!!! 

For me, Hālau ʻŌhiʻa is more than a program for professional and personal development. stewards. We are a movement. We are in the moving...towards reimagining and restoring our connections with the internal natural environment AND the external natural environment. And when we engage all reflections of ourselves with A L O H A -- we open up to the world in the most interesting and wonderful ways.

It's THAT simple!
