Our NHEA convention theme is "Hoʻola ka lāhui! Pehea kākou e pono ai? How can we do or be better?" This year's convention will look at healing and how we heal after the pandemic caring for our Lāhui as well as ourselves. In alignment of our theme, this year's Educators of the year will be Dennis Kauahi and Carol Malina Kaulukukui - who have been pillars of their community for many years and Hoʻoponopono practitioners. Their full bios as well as other info about this year's convention can be viewed here.
