The Hawaii State Judiciary was honored to have Beadie Kanahele Dawson, a nationally recognized mediator and highly experienced haku hooponopono, share her knowledge about the principles and practices of hooponopono.

The program, Native Hawaiian Peacemaking Concepts, was held on May 1 at the Judiciary History Center Theater, Aliiolani Hale. The highlight of the program was a video about hooponopono featuring Dawson and produced and directed by OLELO Television. Following the video, Dawson answered questions from the audience. The video is now available on the Judiciary’s YouTube channel.

“We hope that this seminar stimulates further conversation among members of the Bar (attorneys) and the public to examine how the concepts and principles of hooponopono can be appropriately incorporated into the practice of law,” said Cecelia C.Y. Chang, director of the Judiciary’s CADR program.
