Ho’oponopono is a little known but extremely powerful self-transformation technique.
Ho’oponopono originated from Hawaii and was originally taught by Morrnah Nalamaku Simeona. Morrnah was a healer and in 1983 she received a great honor by being designated as a living treasure of Hawaii. She was teaching Ho’oponopono to small and large groups of people as well as to hospitals, colleges and even to United Nations personnel. She also founded “The Foundation of I, Self-Identity through Hoʻoponopono” to promote principles of Ho’oponopono around the world.

ORLANDO, Florida — Only 29% of hospices in the United States employ massage, art, or music therapists, according to the first national survey to examine such services.
"We were surprised, given the focus of interdisciplinary care and symptom management in hospice, that these services are not being used more," said study investigator Sarah Dain, a medical student at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai, New York.
