In 1970, at a Governor’s conference, Aunty Pilahi Paki, who was a “keeper of the Hawaiian secrets, introduced modern Hawaiï to a deeper understanding of “Aloha”.
A AKAHAI: meaning kindness (grace), to be expressed with tenderness;

A secret of “Aloha” is that a person cannot do one of the principles without truly doing all and if you are not doing one you are not doing any. So, to be “Living Aloha” is to live all the principles.
Aloha is in every culture, it’s vibration of love.
