Ho‘oponopono: Your Path to True Forgiveness

Ho'oponopono is not about the other person. It's about you.

Ho'oponopono is known as the ancient Hawaiian forgiveness process. But, according to Dr. Matt James, that's not quite accurate.

"Ho'oponopono is about release. Releasing pain from the past that enslaves you in the present. Releasing old perceptions of those you love, so your relationships are alive and fresh. Even releasing those who have died so your grief can shift into a new appreciation."

Through consistent use of practices like ho'oponopono, ancient Hawai'ians were almost completely devoid of mental and emotional diseases. They knew what modern medical science has since verified: that holding a grudge affects you not only emotionally, but is also related to physical issues like heart disease, compromised immune systems, and increased stress.

This book will show you:

Why emotional baggage is so toxic physically, and how to remove it

How holding grudges sabotages your dreams, and how to release any resentment

Why your relationships become stale, and how to bring vibrancy back to them

How to turn your grieving into love and joyful acceptance

"Now that science understands the importance of forgiveness and release, many teachers and trainers are promoting ho'oponopono. Their intentions are good, but they miss the mark. It's not just about the words. For true healing, you need to understand how to tap the energy of ho'oponopono."

Modern teachers often streamline the process of ho'oponopono, but in doing so, they leave out elements that ancient Hawaiians knew were critical. In Ho'oponopono: Your Path to True Forgiveness, Dr. Matt reveals those elements, and shows you step by step how to use them for total healing.

Few teachers who talk about ho'oponopono have the extensive background Dr. Matt James has in the practice. Dr. Matt is privileged to carry on the 28th generation of Huna-- the ancient practice of energy work, empowerment and flexibility of the Spirit, Mind and Body-- and its teachings. He also wrote the dissertation for his doctorate in psychology on ho'oponopono and its effectiveness. He has practiced ho'oponopono and taught it to thousands of students for over 20 years.
