Recognition from the Eden Alternative
Hale Makua Health Services was recognized for its inspiration in the May 23, 2011 issue of the Eden Alternative News & Updates with the below write-up.
Hale Makua Health Services in Kahului, HI recently completed Milestone 1 in the Path to Mastery. It was a great way to reinforce the foundation they have laid for their Eden Alternative Journey, which they have named Luana, a Hawaiian term meaning “to live in comfort.” To celebrate the completion of Milestone 1, employees, Elders and volunteers in their Wailuku home enjoyed a barbeque together. They turned an artificial Christmas tree into an “Eden Tree” and decorated it with home-made ornaments. They then voted on what their next Luana project should be. The afternoon of sharing food and stories led one resident to remark that it had been a long time since she’d had a picnic like that with everyone laughing and enjoying themselves. “It reminds me of my childhood”, she shared.
