Community Standards

In creating and developing the content, products, and services offered herein, we were influenced by the Hawaiian Epistemology classes and the Hawaiian Healing Traditions classes and retreats that Lani Yamasaki led for many years, and the years she served as a consultant, facilitator and teacher for organizations including the federal government, hospitals such as North Hawaii Community Hospital, private foundations such as The Joyful Heart Foundation and universities such as The University of Minnesota, Center for Spirituality and Healing.  Over the many years Lani came to realize from these experiences that traditional Hawaiian values and practices were “universally” viewed and appreciated as a holistic way of living, and appealed to medical and wellness practitioners seeking a more holistic approach to healing, which integrated indigenous knowledge, culture, and the arts with modern science.

She also found that traditional Hawaiian values and practices such as aloha (love, kindness, sympathy, charity), ʻohana (family), lōkahi (unity and harmony), kōkua (help), laulima (working cooperatively) and pono (righteousness) created and nurtured a safe environment for personal development, healing and wellness.

In general, when people live by values and practices such as these, a conscious community grows where individuals take responsibility for their actions and seek to do “whatʻs pono or right” including whatʻs right for the community.

By entering this site, you are entering a global on-line community. Those who have been participating in this web site have found aloha and ʻohana. It has become a place to connect to like-minded souls.  It has become a real community that shares a love for Hawaiian cultural traditions, values and practices, and a commitment to authentically embody these traditions, values and practices which guide us to come home to ourselves while maintaining the integrity of our own unique and diverse backgrounds.  We value the community which we have co-created  and welcome new members.

Our company exists because of Ke Akua (God/Creator), our Hawaiian ancestors and kūpuna (elders) which guide us, and our global ohana which supports our vision, mission and goals. We are committed to safeguarding the legacy of our ancestors and kūpuna. We are committed to protecting our community to the best of our ability, and we count on all of you to also mālama or care for our community. We understand that the actions of one individual affects the whole community.

The following Community Standards were created to let you know what is expected of you, and what you can expect from us.  We expect these standards to evolve as we evolve as a community.  We encourage you to check back from time to time to keep abreast of any changes and to remain current.

The guidelines are broken into several sections.  Obviously, some of the guidelines don’t apply to everyone but it’s smart to familiarize yourself with everything, anyway.

Please note that our community is, at the moment, is primarily a virtual community. All community guidelines apply anywhere and any time community members are interacting and communicating.

— General Community Guidelines
— Ethical Guidelines
— Forum Guidelines
— Intellectual Property Guidelines
— Violations of Guidelines

General Community Guidelines

There are four overarching principles that guide this community:

1)  Kūleana: Responsibility, privilege

This is about personal responsibility and accountability. Only you can control what you do, what you say, how you say it, who you say it to, how you interpret what you read, in short, what choices you make and actions you take.  We expect you to be an adult and behave like one at all times and under all circumstances.  Gossip, triangulation, law-breaking, abuse – they are not allowed here.  If you have any questions on what constitutes pono behavior, please reach out and ask our administration. You are also expected to remain current on whatʻs happening in this website. We encourage you to be an active community participant/contributor.  We also encourage you to always remain abreast of community events and communication…  and anything that could impact your membership status.

2)  Aloha: love, kindness, compassion, charity and sympathy.

Aloha is the foundation upon which we operate. Please treat all community members with aloha. Aloha is freely given without any exception of return.

3) Kōkua: Help, to serve

Be of service. Offer assistance before being asked. We encourage you to give freely and without any “strings” attached including expectations.

4) Lōkahi: Harmony, unity.

We value harmonious relationships. Often what is “not expressed aloud” is the “loudest” thing in the room.  Our community is highly sensitive, and will sense and feel if there is disharmony in our midst. If there are any misunderstandings and miscommunications, you are expected to maturely address and peacefully resolve these situations.  If mediation is preferred, please reach out to our administration.

Ethical Guidelines

Our ethical guidelines apply to everyone in the community.

We believe in treating each other with alohaintegrity, and respect.  If you observe anyone behaving in illegal or harmful behaviors to self or others please contact lani@laniyamasaki.com to let us know.

 Posting Guidelines

Our community, course, and comment areas are our primary tools of communication.  As such, it’s important that we all use them in a similar fashion. Here are the guidelines that will allow that to happen:

— Language: If your language wouldn’t be appropriate in polite, mixed company, don’t use it here.  Expletives; coarse, offensive, or vulgar words; mean-spirited or inciteful use of language all are inappropriate.  Masking, or hiding the letters so that you don’t technically use an inappropriate word is prohibited.

— Sexuality: We don’t discuss or exchange sexually explicit images, and/or materials; including but not limited to photographs, film, videos, pictures, or computer-generated images (actual or simulated). Links to sexually explicit materials are also prohibited.  Discussion of sexuality in a more clinical or culturally appropriate sense might be appropriate in a therapeutic conversation or an off-topic post, but will rarely be appropriately discussed in larger community forums.

— Copyright/Trademark: Make sure you own what you post, or that you have explicit permission from the owner to post it. For information in the public domain, please use attribution.

— Advertising and Solicitation: It’s perfectly ok to mention, link to, or discuss web sites that could be of interest to other people. Sharing resources asked for, or resources you find (Hey, look at the new service I just found!) is a terrific way to participate. Self-promotion if used occasionally by someone who is actively contributing to the group’s mission can be okay. We want everyone to flourish. If however, someone is in the community solely for the purpose of self-promotion is not okay.

— Illegalities: If it’s illegal in the world, it’s off-limits as a topic in the forums.  Discussing how to make a bomb or where to buy drugs is off-limits. Discussing a current news story in an off-topic post is fine.

— Violence and Abuse: As a community, many of us have been deeply hurt by violence and abuse of all kinds. Our community will not be a place for this.  Violence, as you know, can take many forms. The most common that could take place in a community like ours and which are prohibited, include, but are not limited to, the following:  Conversations that promote hate, posts that threaten another, posts that defame another, gossip-mongering, posts that contain racial, ethnic, religious, gender, or disability slurs, and posts that are meant to incite problems within the community or between community members.

— Impersonation: Please don’t attempt to impersonate a member of this web site’s staff or another member. Further, please don’t misrepresent your affiliation with any person or entity.

— Triangulation: Triangulation is the practice of involving uninvolved people into a problem. If you have a problem with someone in the community, it’s between the two of you. If you post about it, you involve a whole lot of people who shouldn’t be involved, incite problems, and create ugliness that has to be cleaned up. That’s simply not ok here.  Remember that one of the fundamental components of a secure attachment is navigating conflict and initiating repair.

— Topics: Please keep your posts on-topic – there’s a forum for just about everything (including personal stuff), and if you need another created, just ask.  Off-topic replies, or me-too responses, on the other hand, should be kept off the boards, and sent directly to the person you are replying to.

— Privacy: Please don’t violate another’s privacy by sharing info you have no right to share.  Also, please see the separate Privacy Policy herein.

— Harvesting: Please do not harvest email addresses for your personal or professional use. This is not the forum to seek new business.

— Spam and Other Annoyances: Posts that can be considered spam; for example, posting to multiple forums when there’s no appropriate reason to do so, or for the sole purpose of interrupting the flow of discussion, are unacceptable. Additionally, chain or Internet hoax letters of any sort, passing on junk mail, and sharing any pyramid schemes are not appropriate. We expect you to do your best to not upload anything containing a virus or worm.

Intellectual Property Guidelines   

Intellectual Property Guidelines spell out the way this web site’s members can use this community.  There are many ideas, concepts, and skills that are widely disseminated.  Please use them and allow them to support your well-being, and always remember to Nana I Ke Kūmu or
Look to the Source” from where the information originated. This also applies if you find something helpful and are using it outside this website please acknowledge where you learned this.  Through this type of  aloha spirit and being pono, we can help co-create a world with more kindness, care and sense of equality  and justice.

 Violations of Guidelines

At our sole discretion, we reserve the right to remove, edit, or move posts made to this website.  Additionally, certain policies stipulate specific consequences for non-compliance. Unless otherwise stipulated, we reserve the right to impose, at our discretion, appropriate disciplinary measures, including, but not limited to:  restriction of or removal of privileges, loss of certification, and loss of membership in specific programs. If you’re unclear about whether something is appropriate, please ask first.

The products and services sold on this website are for informational purposes only and not to be interpreted as a promise or guarantee of results, including but not limited to medical and psychotherapeutic healing and amelioration of trauma.  The information presented on the website cannot be considered medical advice or psychotherapy in any form.

Your level of healing and success in attaining the results from using our products and information depends on the time you devote to the program, ideas and techniques used, and the amount of time you practice the various skills.

Since these factors differ among each individual, we cannot guarantee your success, personal development, wellness  or healing, nor are we responsible for any of your actions.

Any and all forward-looking statements on this website or in any of our products are intended to express our opinion of the possibilities that some people may achieve.

But many factors will be important in determining your actual results, and we make no guarantees that you will achieve results similar to ours or anyone else’s. In fact, we make no guarantees that you will achieve any results from the ideas and techniques contained on our web site or in our products.

To the extent that we included any case studies or testimonials on this site, you can assume that none of these stories in any way represent the “average” or “typical” customer experience.

In fact, as with any product or service, we know that some people will purchase our products but never use them at all, and therefore will get no results whatsoever. You should therefore assume that you will obtain no results with this program.

You fully agree and understand that Lani Yamasaki, this web site, and LL are not responsible for your success or failure and make no representations or warranties of any kind whatsoever that our products or services will produce any particular result for you.

The section titles in the TOS are for convenience only and have no legal or contractual effect.

In addition, you agree that by submitting your telephone contact information on this web site and/or registering to receive the product and/or service offered herein, such act constitutes a purchase, an inquiry, and/or an application for the purposes of the Amended Telemarketing Sales Rule (ATSR), 16 CFR ‘310 et seq. and any applicable state and local “do not call” regulations. We retain the right to contact you via telemarketing in accordance with the ATSR and the applicable state regulations.

  1. Non-Personally Identifiable Information

We also may collect various types of non-personally identifiable information to help us make your experience more enjoyable, measure site activity to identify future improvements that should be made, and compile aggregate data to help serve site visitors better. For example, we may use such data to tailor our advertisements, develop proper survey questions, improve our business, etc.

As another example, we may use session and persistent “cookies,” session logs, web beacons, GIF/pixel tags, banner ads, third-party click tracking analytics tools (such as Google Analytics), third party retargeting networks that may display our advertisements to you on other sites that you visit to remind you about us, and third party networks that serve user-requested emails (e.g., for a refer-a-friend email) to collect non-personally identifiable or other aggregated information about site visitors.

Cookies are text files that are used by your computer’s web browser to store your preferences and enable us to enhance your user experience with our web site. Third-party retargeting networks may also use cookies to display our advertisements to you on other sites. You can opt-out of a third-party vendor’s use of cookies by visiting the Network Advertising Initiative opt-out page.

Emails or newsletters that we send electronically may use techniques such as web beacons or pixel tags to gather email metrics and information to improve the reader’s experience, such as the number of emails that are opened, whether they were forwarded or printed, the type of device from which they were opened, and the location (e.g. city, state, and county) associated with the applicable IP address.

If you visit this site with an open ID (such as Facebook), you may also be sharing and integrating data with third-party social media sites, and we may track aggregate data about the number of visits to this site with an open ID, the number of items “liked” on this site or items on this site that you choose to share with a third-party social media site.

Other parties such as advertising partners and analytics companies may also be collecting information about your online activity across various websites over time. The information collected by those third parties may include identifiers that allow those third parties to tailor the ads that they serve to your computer or other devices.

Because there is not yet a common understanding of how to interpret web browser-based “Do Not Track” signals other than cookies, we do not currently respond to “Do Not Track” signals that are undefined.

Please note that you do have the option to configure most web browsers to NOT accept cookies. However, be aware that disabling cookies may keep you from having access to some functions or services on our web site or the web-hosted software that runs on our web site.

Due to the age restrictions of this web site, none of the information obtained by this web site falls within the Child Online Privacy Act (COPPA) and we do not knowingly intend to collect personally identifiable information from children under 18 years of age. If your minor child has provided us with personally identifiable information, you may contact us at the phone number or mailing address listed in the section entitled “Contact” if you want this information deleted from our records. We will then make reasonable efforts to remove your child’s information from the database that stores the information.

IP Addresses

We may use your IP address to help prevent fraud, to help diagnose problems with our server, to gather broad demographic information, and to offer you products and services.

Commitment to Data Security

All information collected from you is stored in a technically and physically secure environment. Furthermore, employees, contractors, and vendors who have access to your personally identifiable information in connection with providing services for us are required to keep the information confidential.

Payments are securely processed by a third-party vendor. Unfortunately, no transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, while we take reasonable measures to protect your information, we cannot ensure or warrant the security of the information that you transmit to us, and you do so at your own risk.

Note to California Residents

If you live in the State of California, under the California Civil Code, you have the right to request that companies who conduct business in California provide you with a list of all third parties to which the company has disclosed Personal Information during the preceding year for direct marketing purposes.

Alternatively, the law provides that if a company has a Privacy Policy that gives either an opt-out (often referred to as “unsubscribe”) or opt-in choice for use of your Personal Information by third parties (such as advertisers or affiliated companies) for marketing purposes, that the company may instead provide you with information on how to exercise your disclosure choice options.

This Site qualifies for the alternative option; it has a comprehensive Privacy Policy and provides you with details on how you may either opt-out or opt-in to the use of your Personal Information by third parties for direct marketing purposes. Therefore, we are not required to maintain or disclose a list of the third parties that received your Personal Information for marketing purposes during the preceding year.

If you are a California resident and want to request information about how to exercise your third party disclosure choices, you must send a request to the following address with a preference on how our response to your request should be sent (email or postal mail). Please send an email to lani@laniyamasaki.com or you may contact us via regular mail at:

Lani Yamasaki, Live Lōkahi, LLC, PO Box , Kamuela, Hawaii 437448.

All requests sent via regular mail must be labeled “Your California Privacy Rights” on the envelope or postcard and clearly stated on the actual request. For all requests, please include your name, street address, city, state, and zip code. Please include your zip code for our own record keeping.

We do not accept requests via the telephone or by facsimile. We are not responsible for notices that are not labeled or sent properly or do not have complete information.

Mahalo (thank you) for your review!
