Making Things Right

The Hawaiian Ho’oponopono Ceremony of Forgiveness is presented twice a year at the Spiritual Awareness Center, at the first of the year and in the middle of the year. The next ceremony happens on June 9, 2019 at 10:45AM at Lions Park Community Center. The ceremony is a formal time to contemplate those you want to forgive and seek forgiveness from in a conscious way. Using the Ha Breath and sending prayers for forgiveness are a part of this ceremony. Everyone is invited to attend and benefit from family, personal, and community forgiveness. It is based on the Hawaiian concept of “pono” which means “to make things right.” It is our responsibility to make things right in our own lives.
