Ancient wisdom for today’s leaders managing natural resources Island style:
Living on the earthʻs most isolated landmass, early Hawaiians adapted and thrived by managing their precious resources. This management style has at its core a traditional healing prayer that provides direction, bringing all aspects of life into alignment. Palena refers to land boundaries and participants are guided through establishing their own boundaries around business, projects and personal life. An easy walk to Ala Moana Beach Park, the activity will take place under the shade of a tree by the beach. In inclement weather, the activity will take place in one of Still & Moving Center’s beautifully appointed studios.
