All About The Evolution of Alohā
An Essential Read
The Evolution of Alohā explores the personal journey to find one's place in history. Dr. Gerry Ebalaroza-Tunnell reconnects with the diverse ethnicity of her ancestors as she strives to understand herself. Through a newly discovered definition of Alo (Forward Facing) Hā (Breath of Life), Dr. G discovers her mixed heritage's incredible and sometimes painful realities in time, place, and colonization.
This work is based on Aunty Pilahi Paki's words of wisdom:
"The world will turn to Hawai'i as they search for world peace because Hawai'i has the key...
And that key is Aloha!"
A.L.O.H.A. reminds us to value inquiry over settling quickly on answers. To create a cohesive community, we must value listening over being heard. To develop personal maturity, we must observe our emotional and somatic reactions to the world around us with curiosity. To avoid falling into cognitive dissonance and shutting ourselves off from others, we must remain heart-focused on how we perceive the world and the paradigms that shape them. To evolve in a world of constant change, we need to be willing to adapt to new information and acknowledge that we are all on this journey together.
Each acronym allows us to step into complex conversations that will invite the spirit of grace, empathy, responsibility, and accountability.
