A healthy and balanced life as a Hawaiian begins with the spirit of aloha. Aloha is a much embraced, but often misunderstood them. The meaning of aloha embraces everything from hello and goodbye, to love, caring, sharing, goodwill to all, and is defined as a way of life.
The more powerful meaning is found in its direct translation, ha meaning breath of life. The ancient greeting of aloha was originally reserved for loved once and close family. It involves rubbing noses, saying aloha and inhaling each other's breath ( or ha ) This is considered the most heartfelt and sincere welcome - to share your life energy with another person - and is the foundation of aloha.
