You will find hooponopono in lomilomi,  laaulapaau,  ohana conferencing,  family systems,  judicial and court systems, drug addiction recovery, restorative justice in the prison system,  mental health,  youth at risk,  individual counseling, the pursuit of self-identity. There are many expressions of hooponopono in the world today. 

As Mary Kawena Pukui describes it:

"Ho'oponopono is getting the family together to find out what is wrong. Maybe to find out why someone is sick, or the cause of a family quarrel. Then, with discussion and repentance and restitution and forgiveness— and always with prayer— to set right what was wrong.

Oh, God, Creator of heaven and earth ... we ask Your help. To our aumakua* from the East and from the West, from the North and from the South, from zenith to horizon, from the upper strata and the lower strata, hearken. Come. We want to discuss together and get your guidance and help,
