Philosophy and Comments        

The Long Life model of healing is based on the relationships between individuals, Akua (creator) and the environment (nature). Lokahi or a balanced relationship between those three aspects of ola (life force) is the desired outcome in our daily lives. The accumulation and use of mana (concentrated life force or spiritual power) is essential for the healing process. Hale Ola is a program for learning, using and mastering the art of healing the self, and each other.

To meet the challenges of changing environments, evolving personalities of clients and students, and fluctuations in our individual, personal energy levels, Kumu Kaohe believes that an integrative approach is the optimal style of training or receiving wellness and health care.
