Hoʻolohe

Hoʻolohe See lohe, to hear, obey. Uncle Moke Kim from Molokaʻi would always tell our students to hoʻolohe with your whole body. It was his way to get the students to be cognizant of the messages coming through all their senses. He wanted them to hear the wind as their kupuna coming to give them manaʻo. Hoʻolohe is a methodology that I use – to hoʻolohe with my whole body, to see the part, the whole and the greater whole in order to try and discover the WHY? HOW COME? 

It connects with the moenahā work in that we are searching for the connection between the larger concept and the content and skills.
